    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 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;
    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.

    Not one of these taxes existed 60 years ago, & our nation was one of the most prosperous in the world. We had absolutely no national debt, had a large middle class, and Mom stayed home to raise the kids.

    So what the hell happened? Can you say P O L I T I C I A N S ??

    two more taxes should be taken.....

    the gov's should tax her ass......she makes hundreds a day for standing on the corner.

    the gov's should tax that stoner.....millions a day going up in smoke

    legalizing these two laws would get any country out of debt.

    All these taxes and yet some still complain that spending cuts need to occur. They actually complain when the govt doesnt take your money and spend it on some crazy social project.
    All of these taxes and the economy sinking and the us dollar losing ground and some still think we should implement huge socialist govt projects... amazing.

    Someone found my weak spot. :rolleyes:

    Did you know that when you pay tax you participate in what your government does?
    I.e. if they kill you do too. You’re an indirect participant.

    I don’t need to have my legs blown off to know that war is a bad thing.
    It will be you on the other side one day. It’s just a matter of time and if it doesn’t happen, you just haven’t lived long enough.
    If it happens, it would be fair to say you've done it to yourself because you contributed to war, in the form of tax paying.

    Better it is to die than pay their tax!

    I have a feeling I am going to regret this but what are you saying? you don't pay taxes in your country? Or is this about war and why the United States feels the need to help other countries find democracy and freedom from crazy tyrant leaders. I apologize in advance if I am totally misunderstanding your point. :)

    Sry felicie if I came on too strong there. :)

    I don't have an issue with taxation. It can be a good thing.
    What I do feel is wrong though, is when the tax money is spent on destructive things like war.
    As a tax payer it makes me feel responsible.

    Given that, yes, war is destructive but on the other side of the card there is military defense for your homeland, friends and families. I'm sure you wouldn't completely cut military funding from your taxes if you could :rolleyes: ...at least I hope you wouldn't! There are always two sides to things. :) (triangles and other shapes with more than two sides not included)

    You were not too strong petro. I just couldn't get a grasp on what you were saying exactly which was probably my fault not yours. Yes we vote them in and pay taxes and therefore are responsible for what they do. Sometimes war is the only option it seems and I just wish once the decision has been made they'd just get in there and do it and do it quick. No pissing around which is what has been done in every conflict I can remember since the 50's. That's when it becomes just a huge waste of human life imo. Here's to peace petro. :thumbsup:

    We are (USA) perfectly capable of doing just that if we only would.

    If we vote 'em in then in a democracy we have an obligation to abide by their decisions - with taxes and all.

    That doesn't mean to say we have to agree with them or not be critical. That's the value of having a balanced democracy with a strong opposition in parliament/congress to keep the governing party on their toes and hopefully accountable...and a limited period of office after which we can fire their asses.

    Supported by a critical media and an independent judicial system.

    But I agree that war is probably the most wasteful and destructive course a nation can embark upon, and it should only be done in extreme circumstances where a country's national safety is at real and imminent risk and there are absolutely no alternatives.

    It often seems to me that there's an almost testosterone-fuelled need for political leaders at some point in their terms of office to show how forceful they can be, sometimes on pretty tenuous and inequitable grounds. And often interfering in the affairs of other nations.

    Take Libya as a current example. I'm trying to get my head around why (other than the knee jerk reaction to say 'oil' or 'Middle East influence') our Western nations are so hell bent on 'protecting the civilian population from Gaddafi', when there are at least two or three other nations with equally brutal political leaderships and disregard for civil and human rights that are facing domestic insurrection.

    What's the criteria, and where does it stop?

    I have difficulty buying the idea that 'just because there are others equally at fault we should not shy away from doing something to one of them' or that the motives for interference in another nation's affairs are entirely altruistic.

    On the contrary, it appears to me on occasion that international power politics is at work, trying to shape a more congenial political climate.

    And every time I watch news images of war zones I am shocked again into the realisation of how many schools, hospitals and other progressive and positive national assets could be funded by the billions of pounds and dollars that the wanton destruction of battle soaks up.

    Just pause to think about not only the invaluable loss of human life and ancillary family damage, but the billions in taxpayers' money that will be needed to replace all the equipment and munitions, and rebuild economies and property destroyed and damaged.

    Funny how mankind can always find funds for war, even in times of global austerity.

    I had a friend back in the 80's whose husband was in the Navy and stationed here in my area. She told me at that time that her hubby had come to believe the most recent of wars were often planned in advance and especially during a bad economy. I asked my ex-Marine dad about it and he said she was a loose nut or something to that effect but 30 years later, it wouldn't surprise me at all.

    It must have something very interesting if the French are involved.
