i'm with stupid

One of my Bubba Tea Party Sympathizer friends just emailed me this:

Tax his land,
Tax his bed,
Tax the table
At which he's fed.

Tax his work,
Tax his pay,
He works for peanuts

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,
It's time to apply
The inheritance tax.

And when you think about the taxes and fees and fines and mandatory coverage out there, maybe you would concede that the righties have plenty of reason to bitch about being taxed to death. They scream about it, and we default to thinking they mean having to help poor people. No. They mean they can't afford to eat.

Alcohol Tax
Bridge Tolls
Building Permit
Business License
Capital Gains
Cigarette Tax

Income Tax
Inheritance Tax
Marriage License
Municipal Water Charges
Parking Meters
Passport Fees
Property Tax
Regulatory Infraction Fines

I've probably left out a ton of what the average citizen is mandated to pay, but you get my drift....


And, for any of you who doubted me when I mentioned the legislating this week will be about the Republicans' need to clamp down on the Tea Party, this would begin to fit the bill, no?

  1. Shit. I was just formulating my lethal emanations from the earth's core theory with Old Uncle Dave. I think Gaia is trying to kill us, and who could blame her?
