Your money is our money

It is only 3%. No big deal man. Relax. 3% means nothing to you.  You won't even notice it. We will give it someone who will notice it. It will be a big deal to them.

Hey, we are upping the 3% to 6%. It will be OK. You won't even notice it. It is no big deal to you. What would you do it anyways? There are better ways of spending it than your wasteful ideas.

I know that we said 6%, but the 6 ain't cutting it. We need more. The people who need it simply need more. Besides, you can handle it. It is not fair that you make lots of money. They don't make enough. Come on, be Patriotic, pay more taxes.

It is not really your money anyways. It belongs to all of us. Don't be so greedy. It is not cool man.

Oh, and by the way, we have to raise income taxes down a bit lower than we thought. Due to the fact that all of the high income earners are making less money, everyone is now making less money, and that means, we in the government are making less money. Don't worry though, you won't even notice the tax increases. Besides, we know what to do with your money better than you do.

Thanks.

Oh and yeah - that tax cut given to you by the evil George W - well we're taking that away in 2010. Remember - it's patriotic to pay those taxes so that people who don't work as hard as you do; people who are not as smart as you are; people with virtually zero idea of what "service" means; people who couldn't pass a pee test - yeah - all those people - it's so that all of those people can have a better life on the back of your labor. But that's cool man! I know you get it.

I can say "G'day mate" really well! Hopefully it will never have to come to that, although just one of the reasons I cam here in the first place was to get away from living under socialism!

Kevin ~ Now the IRS is cracking down on overseas and offshore bank accounts. Nothing is safe anymore, Obama and his patriotic tax and spend liberals are going to hunt down all that money the government deserves.

Nick:

This crack down picked up momentum after 9/11.  The I.R.S. and the Feds decided to blackmail countries for protection against terrorist.  The post 9/11 climate leaves little to be desired when you are trying to find a place to park your money outside the U.S.

I'm movin' to MEXICO...

Posted by Mark and Tana Hunt, Born and raised in Austin, WE KNOW THIS PLACE! (Team Price Real Estate/Dan Price Broker) over 10 years ago

Tana - if you do move to Mexico, be sure to do it legally.  Unlike here, illegal aliens there aren't welcomed, nor ignored or harbored.  And, trust me, most American jails are quite cozy in comparison to Mexican jails.

Mexican jails mean beans and tortillas only ... LOL

Socialism doesn't work! Most people do not mind helping others who are TRULY in need. They just don't want to contribute to enabling others to live unhealthy and unproductive lives.

I'm drawing the line at Mi Casa es su casa, When I have people taking over rooms in my house, then we've gone too far with sharing.

Kevin. It will be interesting to read what the press has to say, after a couple of months have passed--after 20 January there will be the honeymoon and then? When we all get to exercise our "patriotism" (code word for pay more taxes), we'll see how fast, the economy grows.

all the best

Higher taxes don't seem all that patriotic to me. I think they seem that way to one who pays no taxes.
