Full Version: Taxes the american way

Here is something I read today I thought everybody might enjoy it or NOT.

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,
Its time to apply

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

What's even more sad is that I see some other taxes that are missing from the list.

Is that the official "Turbo-Tax" list , or just the preliminary list? (devil)

I sent you an email I thought you might get a kick out of given this post.
In the meanwhile I submit that EVERY American simply stop paying taxes at the same time. THAT would send a powerful message that WE HAVE HAD ENOUGH!

Just my two cents. Want change?

Oh by the way, thanks for sending me to Woods & Trophies. That worked out quite well.

You are dropping a lot of $0.02. Are you paying the taxes on them?

They come out of my after tax earnings. That is why I can only give two cents......

If you were in my tax bracket, you would only owe me a penny for my thoughts. That would be 50% off of your two cents worth. (devil)

Interesting bit on Federal Income Tax.


Thing is I'm not brave enough to not pay taxes. Law or not I don't want the IRS attack squad showing up at my door with AK-47s. :P

O I Sei.

If I believed that I would be too gullible to be a moderator. (Sometimes I am not.) :P

You're in the same boat with many people, who, even though the Supreme court says the 16th ammendment is untenable, would rather go easily, than incur the wrath of the IRS.

I found it interesting, in the interview with Aaron Russo, that ex-IRS agents, who investigated the laws pertaining to an income tax and found no legal support for the tax, are now amongst the ranks of people who don't pay.

That link wasn't working, until I removed the numbers from the end. Don't know if I saw what you were pointing to or not.

It is an article about a man who claims he "doesn't have to pay income taxes" holed up in his house in New Hampshire. The IRS on the outside and Ed peeking out the windows..

Ed's wife is cutting a deal, I believe, but he is holding out.

The basis of almost all of the claims I have followed over the years (remember, I was an accountant in my early years) are over the official definition of "income" which only applies to companies by their interpretation of the law.

I don't have enough time to barricade myself in the house and peek out the windows, so I guess I'll just keep on paying taxes. :-)

I don't mind paying taxes. My objection, is how the money is spent (wasted).
