“Don’t Steal. The government doesn’t like competition.”
Tax time, and boy am I grumpy. Getting bung holed without the courtesy of a reach around, that is what tax season means to me. Much like the guy that pays tens of thousands over the years in car insurance yet never once filed a claim, this is how I feel, thanks for nothing. I guess some measure of recompense could be gleaned if my sacrifice was going to something noble, like paying off the debt, a little pain now for a lifetime of solvency later. But no, I get no satisfaction from paying for the privileges that others get for free, then having them laugh at me for being a sucker.
And things are no better across the pond;
I understand the standard facile comebacks; time to get a rope, buy more ammunition, and stockpile supplies, I even get using the obscure Jefferson quote about the tree of liberty and what is required for its nourishment, but the situation law abiding tax paying citizens find themselves in is getting intolerable real quick. Paying taxes only works if our government is competent and trustworthy, it ain’t, so in my mind they have already broken the bond or the contract we both agreed to.
The risk of prison or me being removed from my comfortable lifestyle, even while getting bent over and rectally violated, limits my options. But the next generation, or even this one, should not be so passive. I am up for a revolution…………as long as I’m home by dinner.
