A Tax-Day Poem

As every wage earner in America is all too aware. As you contemplate how much you pay the government for the privilege of living in this wonderful country, you might amuse yourself by repeating the following. (Sorry, I don't know who the author is. If you do, please tell me.)

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 a**.
Tax all he has, then let him know
That you won't be done 'till he has no dough.

When he screams and hollers,
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.

So glad Obama can joke about on TV how the American People should be thanking him for the tax cuts. What frikkin tax cuts? Oh you mean for those people who don't even pay taxes, they made money with the few hundred bucks they got back in the mail. I am sure that money will change and better their lives forever. They have all sold their souls and their country down the socialist river for a few lousy bucks. Off of the backs of hard working Americans. Amazing how evil it has become to make over $250,000 a year. I guess most of N. Fulton is evil then. Shame on you hard working people for making too much money. The Gov. is taking it from you because you are so evil and give it to the poe foke, so they stay right where they are and don't strive for the American dream. Live to be mediocre! Go Obama!

Watch the Cap and Tax bill get rammed through the Senate like the Healthcare Bill.

Obama said, "under my energy plan, electricity bills will skyrocket".
But, that's not a tax on middle class is it? Who do you think these companies are going to pass the cost on to? Greece is on the horizon for America if this Administration and Congress are not stopped! Get involved, speak up, VOTE them all out!

Cap and Tax is gonna raise your gasoline costs and everything else under the sun!! Wake up!

Point Carbon, an energy markets consulting service, estimated the anticipated Senate bill would result in U.S. gasoline prices rising an average of 27 cents a gallon from 2013 to 2020. The bill is expected to contain a fee on motor fuels.

This doesn't include the proposed
.15 cents national tax on Gasoline either!

Did you Americans know that 50% of the gas proceeds already goes to our government, yeah.
