The Master Plan (Subtitle: Damn Taxes)

I'm pissed.

I'm taking LIFE Economics again. for fun. Maybe I'll get my master's in Business with an emphasis in ACCOUNTING!! Why? So I can beat Big Daddy Taxman with a hot iron! How is it possible that I'm in a low tax bracket, pay 1/3 of my paycheck to the government-- and still owe a monstorous amount of which I will pay small portions for the rest of the year? Let's make the 30% I've already PAID 40, shall we? And while we're at it--

LOCK ME UP! So I can live for *&(&* FREE on my O W N tax dollars-- probably actually pocketing more money pressing PLATES in the SLAMMA workhouse than I do in the education profession right now!! Or maybe-- let me sit on my COUCH in my FRILLY pajamas and watch DAYS OF OUR LIVES and have BABIES so I can collect W E L F A R E, enjoy free H E A L T H C A R E, and perhaps use a portion of the 40% of the wages that I've worked for. Our nation is bankrupt and daily digging deeper and deeper into the debt habit---so much so that our president is about to PAY us just to go S H O P P I N G (another "New Deal", GW style). Our nation is a bureaucracy designed to support the people who run the machine. The rich really ARE getting richer and the poor---well honey, we just PO. What has happened to America?


A wise and frugal government, which shall leave men free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor and bread it has earned - this is the sum of good government.

Experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms of government those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny.

Every government degenerates when trusted to the rulers of the people alone. The people themselves are its only safe depositories.

Tonight is the first night I've considered becoming an expat and setting up a pancake or boogeyboard shop on the coast of F I J I.

Did I mention I'm pissed?

Off to find my iron.

flat tax, oh flat tax----you make too much sense for idiots!
