Get the facts, Jack!

Somebody who claims to be a Democrat recently sent this crap out to our email list:

A Tax Lesson

Tax his land,
Tax his bed,
Tax the table
At which he's fed.

Tax his tractor,
Tax his mule...

Blah, blah, blah... Here's my response:

Of course, one of the biggest reasons the middle class is getting squeezed is because middle class red-necks vote for Republicans who preach low taxes, and then they give Paris Hilton millions in tax breaks. Under Republican Rule, the rich get richer, and the middle class and poor pay more. How about we elect people who give a damn about the middle class for a change? How about we make sure people who work make more than the poverty level, get health care and a college education for his Children. Even under the liberal Republican Arnold in Cali, the middle class has gotten screwed with higher fees, tuition, and all kinds of other things we need and deserve because we make this country work. Meanwhile, in percent of income, Romney and Bush pays less than a minimum wage earner in taxes.

Tax his inheritence
Tax his portfolio
Tax his yacht
Tax his Bently
Tax his offshore corporation
Tax his oil profits
Tax his outsourcing
Tax his Chinese factory

or

stop his corporate welfare at assembly square

Besides, if we don't tax wealth at least at the same rate as we tax work (which we currently don't), how the hell else do you propose we pay for George W. Bush's Trillions of dollars in debt? Oh, well, no worries. All you people without kids don't have to worry that your offspring will be paying the George W. Bush War tax for decades to come.

Sad Rumor Mill

The "rumor mill" must have had too much to drink because they are seeing things that aren't there and hearing voices that don't exist.

3 ten gallon hats

Why are you limiting trash barrels to 32 gallons? Why don't we get automated Garbage trucks that pick up the larger containers like other cities and towns have? Sell some of those harley davidson motorcyles! We want real service for our tax dollars, not some snotty nose knowsnose BS!

"The procession will be in period clothing and lead by George Washington to the monument where the ceremony will be held at noon."

George Washington? I thought good ole' George was at least six feet tall and actually had the intestinal fortitude to speak his mind......not just act like a puppet and move his lips with mouthing other people's words?
