Yeah, This Just In.

So, you'll all be very happy to learn that this is the FIRST YEAR in my 20+ year working life that I've ever owed taxes above and beyond deductions. EVER. Once, in '92, when I cleared a grand total of about 8 thousand bucks, I paid zero and they even sent me a couple hundred, I guess out of sheer pity.

Thanks for the tax cunt. I mean cut. Fuckin' asshole. How many dead Iraqi babies does a hundred bucks buy?

No, no, Bobby. You misunderstood. Bush wants to help working families. Have a few kids, then you'll see the bright new tomorrow they keep promising you.

This morning on NPR I heard a "report" about Tax Freedom Day, or some such shit -- basically, it's the day of the year that you have to work until in order to account for the taxes paid to the federal and state governments. This concept was created by some right-wingnut group, and here is NPR, "reporting" on the fact that this year it took a couple more days than last year, and that it takes longer to pay our taxes than it does to pay for "the necessities of life".

Fuck. Sorry to break it to you all, including you liberal listeners of NPR, but Government is a necessity, and we don't get a government and all the services and benefits it provides unless we collectively pay for it through this thing called taxes.

These fucking right-wingers want all the benefits of the American money machine -- the fact that we can throw our considerable economic weight around the world -- with none of the responsibility for it. Yes, like EotM, I wish my taxes were better spent. But I've never resented having to pay them.* It's the price of living in a civilized society.


* and I'm not accusing you of that, Bobby
