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... Then ask who are the mugs.

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

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

Tax his car,
Tax his gas,








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

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

Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago, & our nation was one of the most prosperous in the world. We had absolutely no national debt, had a large middle class, and Mom stayed home to raise the kids.

What in "Hell" happened?

Can you smell 'politicians?'

Lots of untrue things

This has been floating around the US for a while. The last time they had no national debt was 1834 apparently so it must have been a chain letter before the internet was invented :D

Didn't we borrow a ship-load of money from good old mother England to build our railways?

That's just random. Most of those taxes don't even apply to us

True at the moment.

However I'm rather annoyed that Cicero posted this as some Govt servants may pick up on his post and advise the Govt of the day accordingly. :stare:

There's an "Unemployment" tax? No wonder it's hard to make ends meet when you're out of work!!

And tax according to Ronny........


Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.
