There's Tax On That

Corrine got ahold of this. Many people never stop to think about the big picture in taxes.

A friend of mine took pleasure in the fact that high earning, wealthy people are being taxed at around 38%. I asked him, "You think 38% is bad?" He said yes. I told him that he and everyone else was paying over 50% and didn't even realize it. Add together all of the taxes below and get ready for a shock.

And this doesn't even cover the tax on stupid people.

It's called The Lottery!

This is pretty scary...

What Happened?

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 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,
then 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,
It's time to apply
The inheritance tax.

COMMENTS: 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?

And yet I still have to "press 1" for English...
I hope this goes around the world 10 times.
