    What Happened?
    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 tractor,
    Tax his mule,
    Teach him taxes
    Are the rule.

    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, then
    Tax his tears.

    Tax his car,
    Tax his gas,
    Find other ways
    To tax his ass (another word for donkey)

    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.

    COMMENTS: 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 happened?
    And I still have to "press 1" for English
    I hope this goes around the world 10 times

    The last I heard, when you add it all up it is a little over 60% tax rate on average gross earnings. Over 50% is clearly a Marxist state, and anything over 20% is oppressive. Not what the Framers intended.

    I agree. That's why I support the "Fairtax" need to repeal the 16th Ammendment, return some of their power back to the people.
