Got This From Bigwheel

Not really a joke, is it?

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
The inheritance tax.

Accounts Receivable Tax
Building Permit Tax
CDL license 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 I still have to "press 1" for English

In Cook County, Illinois they have a take out tax. You buy fast food to go and you get taxed. I've also seen a dine in tax. They get you coming and going. Most people don't even realize till you look at the receipt.

In Ohio its the opposite. Eat in you pay the tax. Take out and its tax free!

If you work "in" the City of Detroit, you pay City of Detroit Income Tax, whether you live there or not. They reason that even if you live outside the city you are using the services of the city. Sooner or later you will need the police so....

Use to piss my Dad off to no limit; Federal income tax, State income tax and City of Detroit income tax. They also add a city tax onto any hotel room rental in the city, it's called a Lodging Tax.

Talk about your taxation without representation. [smilie=a_whyme.gif]

in the US, I think it's in April or May, maybe June.
In other words, almost half of what we make goes
to taxes.

Ridiculous.

Government at any level has not seen a tax that they do not like.
