Taxes
I had a whole rant about taxes ready. Now I'm more confused than I was in the first place. So I'm not going to post it yet.

Current Mood: aggravated aggravated

Mwahahahaha!!!

Taxes are bad. It's pretty simple.

Seriously, though. Go ahead and post it if you want -- do it as a "thinking out loud work in progress." It's really easy to get into confusing issues when you talk taxes. Go ahead and get other people's input while you're still confused. It's more fun that way!

Re: But be warned...

Nope.

Taxes come from the government.

The government is run by politicians.

The politicians are run by Special Interest Groups.

The Special Interest Groups are run by Big Business.

Politicians use politics to confuse The People, so people will think that the Politicians are run by The People, while not annoying the SIG's too much.

Therefore, any talk of taxes will involve politics, on some level.

I can do anything I want. It's my journal.

Re: But be warned...

Good point. However, I'm not sure it's possible. (see logic-ish statement above)

Good luck with it.

And feel free to bitchslap me anytime you want.

mild edit

Next to last line should be:

Politicians use politics to confuse The People, so they will think that the Government is run by The People, while not annoying the SIGs (or Big Business) too much.

People don't run politicians... people run government... or so we're told.
