Something to Ponder

I drove the 30 miles to town to pick-up a few things I forgot to bring with me to woods. Wouldn't ya know it-A Starbucks was sighted. I thought they closed all those high priced flavored motor oil dispensers that they call coffee.
However since they have free WI-fi, I can set comfortably in my van drinking good coffee and check a few things I need to do. Because I forgot to do Friday-crs raising it's ugly head again. Oh my God I forgot to pay my Property tax-so add another $50.00 to the bill. That Sucks.

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

Tax his cow,
Tax his goat,
Tax his pants,
Tax his coat,

Tax his tie,
Tax his shirts,
Tax his work,
Tax his dirt,

Tax his tobacco (for Jim)
Tax his drink,
Tax him if he
Tries to think.

Tax his beers,
If he cries,
Tax his tears.

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.

Put these words,
Upon his tomb,
Taxes drove me ,
To my doom.

When he's gone,
Do not relax,
It's time to apply,
The inheritance tax.

Just some of the taxes I can think of: Accounts receivable tax, Building permit tax, CDL license tax,Cigarette tax, Corporate income tax, Dog license tax, Excise tax, Federal Income tax,Federal Unemployment tax (FUTA), Fishing license tax, Food license tax, Fuel permit tax, Gasoline tax, Gross receipts tax, Hunting license tax, Inheritance tax, Inventory tax, IRS Interest charges IRS penalties (tax on a tax) Liquor tax, Luxury taxes, Marriage taxes, Medicare taxes,Personal property tax, Property tax, Real estate tax, Service charge tax, Social security tax, Road usage tax, Sales tax, Recreational Vehicle tax, School tax, State income tax, State unemployment tax, 8 different telephone taxes(love those), Utility taxes, Vehicle License Registration tax, Vehicle Sales tax, Well permit tax, Workers Compensation tax.

All just to support a rotten government-WE will get change all right-unless they figure another way to take the $.50 left.

Back to the woods. I need a Pepsi with some Jack Daniels, and a cigarette while I can still afford it.

See ya
