Still Think It Is Funny?



This poem was sent to me by an Australian, pointing at Australian Politicians but I think you would agree, that it is pertinent for any county in the world, at this present moment.

When you look at the end result of your salary, you will realize that most of it is paid in Tax.

I think to myself and I include myself in this. How dumb are we? We still go to work and keep paying all the taxes, we don’t complain, well if we do it is usually to a friend or spouse but never publicly, we just let the politicians and bureaucrats keep draining our hard-earned money. We probably only get one days pay a week that we can call our own.

Are we just lazy? Are we scared of authority? Are the Powerful people of the world positioning themselves to make us, the population, so dependent on the powerful few.

What ever it is that is happening, we are letting them do it. The consequences, we have no one to blame but ourselves.

I like to think of myself as a free spirit but I think that will be something of the past for the next generation. If they don’t start taking control of their future they wont be allowed even to say those words.

Am I exaggerating, maybe, I don’t think so.

I think it is time I got out into the beautiful sunshine. This is far too serious for a Sunday afternoon.

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 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,
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.

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

STILL THINK it’s FUNNY?
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 Mum stayed home to raise the kids.
