And So I Go: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow

>> TAXES! (a must read. BB)

Posted on: February 27, 2010

Another from Gail and Jerry.  Jerry, God love him, will spend  weeks figuring out how to legally keep the government from getting a penny more than necessary of his hard earned money.   :)   Oh well, it is something for him to do while Gail takes line dancing classes and swims in the “family” pools at the camp grounds.  Jerry won’t swim in the “family” pools but sticks only to the “adult” pools because he remembers “what kids do in pools”!

Do read this whole thing as it is an eye opener. BB

This might be funny if it weren’t so darned true.
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 work,
Tax his pay,
He works for peanuts
Anyway!
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
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.

STILL THINK THIS IS FUNNY? 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 in the hell happened? Can you spell ‘politicians?’

Did your friend Jerry write this?

Well, this does say it all. At the rate this country is going, we may be able to start back that 100 years after all. No taxes, and of course nothing else either. But it’s a place to start.

No, Gail and Jerry just passed it on to me and I passed it on to you. We met them on the West Coast when Lew and I were full time RVers. Gail and Jerry are still out there tho they call Texas home.
