Taxed? Enough Already

April 18th, 2011

A follow-up to Your Money (or click here for the rest of our taxation series)…


“Taxes are the price we pay for civilization.” —  Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.


You’ve (hopefully) filed by now, so relax.

And no, nobody likes paying tax.


But contrary to the Tea Party’s misguided accusation,

US taxes are lower than almost every other developed nation.


And in contrast to Teabagger misperceptions and fears,

American taxes are the lowest they’ve been in 60 years.


Instead of going up, taxes have been declining,

So enough already with the whining.


Like Justice Holmes said, we pay taxes and get civilization.

So maybe we’re better off without their elimination.


Just be happy when sending in your IRS check and return,

That we don’t to the high tax rates of Ronald Reagan return.
