Once More Into the Breach

Finding Nonsense and Beating it Sensible

I used to watch TV news and yell at the box. Now I jump up from the couch, sit at the computer and begin to type laughing maniacally saying "Wait until they read this." It's more fun than squashing tadpoles

Tax Poem

Forwarded by a friend......

At first I thought this was funny....then I realized the

awful truth of it.

Be sure to read all the way to the end!

Tax his land,
Tax his bed,
Tax the table
At which he's fed.

Tax his tractor,
Tax his mule,
Teach him taxes
Are the rule.

Tax his work,
Tax his pay,
He works for peanuts

Tax his cow,
Tax his goat,
Tax his pants,

Tax his coat.
Tax his ties,
Tax his shirt,
Tax his work,
Tax his dirt.

Tax his tobacco,
Tax his drink,
Tax him if he
Tries to think..

Tax his cigars,
Tax his beers,
If he cries
Tax his tears.

Tax his car,
Tax his gas,
Find other ways
To tax his ass.

Tax all he has
Then let him know
That you won't be done
Till he has no dough.

When he screams and hollers,
Then tax him some more,
Tax him till
He's good and sore..

Then tax his coffin,
Tax his grave,
Tax the sod in
Which he's laid.

Put these words
Upon his tomb,
'Taxes drove me to my doom...'

When he's gone,
Do not relax,
Its time to apply
The inheritance tax.

Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago, and our

nation was the most prosperous in the world. We had

absolutely no national debt, had the largest middle class

in the world, and Mom stayed home to raise the kids.
What in the hell happened?
Can you spell 'politicians?'
And I still have to 'press 1' for English!?!?!?!?
I hope this goes around THE USA at least 100 times!!!!!
YOU can help it get there!!!!>

women couldn’t vote
mom stayed home to raise the kids because she wasn’t allowed to work, drive, etc.
children were working in factories
race riots
japanese immigration forbidden
few paid fire & police
few fire and safety regulations (which lead to hundreds of deaths - see rhoads opera house, etc)
roads and cars weren’t commonplace (commercial driver’s license? try brand new model t-s on dirt roads, 32 days to cross country, no interstate)
couldn’t make a cross-country phone call
utility tax - you don’t like fresh water, sewer, gas or electricity?

the following taxes actually WERE enacted by 1908:
income tax (1862)
excise taxes on tobacco and alcohol
property tax
workman’s compensation tax (1908)
school taxes enacted to build schools
machinery and vehicles were taxed prior to 1908, RVs didn’t exist
inheritance taxes have existed since long before 1908 , most states don’t apply it to spouse or charity
coporate income tax (ny, among others)
building permits were taxed
licenses were taxed

the list is so false, it should really only be the few taxes that weren’t enacted yet or weren’t eligible to be taxed since they weren’t around…
Social Security Tax (1935)
RV tax
road taxes (became commonplace mid 1900s, to build, well roads)
Federal Unemployment Tax (1939)
Medicare Tax (1965)
telephone tax

btw, not that the truth seems to matter to the right (why is that?), but the national debt in 1908 was $2,626,806,271.54

there really wasn’t a middle class until after wwII. until then it was working class/elite class.
