Opinion

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, anyway!

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 'til 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.

It's time to apply the Inheritance Tax.

Accounts Receivable Tax -Building Permit Tax - CDL License Tax - Cigarette Tax - Corporate Income Tax - Dog License Tax - Excise Taxes - Federal Income Tax - Federal Unemployment Tax (FUTA) - Fishing License Tax - Food License Tax - Fuel Permit Tax - Gasoline Tax (currently 44.75 cents per gallon) - Gross Receipts Tax - Hunting License Tax - Inheritance Tax - Inventory Tax - IRS Interest Charges - IRS Penalties (tax on top of tax) - Liquor Tax - Luxury Taxes - Marriage License Tax - Medicare Tax - Personal Property Tax - Property Tax- Real Estate Tax - Service Charge Tax - Social Security Tax - Road Usage Tax - Sales Tax - Recreational Vehicle Tax - School Tax - State Income Tax - State Unemployment Tax (SUTA) - Telephone Federal Excise Tax - Telephone Federal Universal Service Fee Tax - Telephone Federal, State and Local Surcharge Taxes - Telephone Minimum Usage Surcharge Tax - Telephone Recurring and Non-recurring Charges Tax - Telephone State and Local Tax - Telephone Usage Charge Tax - Utility Taxes - Vehicle License Registration Tax - Vehicle Sales Tax - Watercraft Registration Tax - Well Permit Tax - Workers Compensation 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 happened? Can you spell 'politicians?
