Today I'm doing my taxes. If I had a choice, I would rather go to my dentist to get a root canal. I would not even need anesthesia as the pain is much less than filling up forms after forms just to determine that I have too much money in my bank account and have to part with a huge chunks and send it to the governments!
By the time I'll be done, my blood pressure will be higher than my tax bracket, my blood sugar will be plunge lower than any tax exemption and my mood will be as depressing as my bottom line!
I'm sure that once I send my money, our national deficit will be still soaring, the programs we finance will be losing more money and the governments will manage to ask for more next year.
At least I'll feel good about sending one more drops in this out-of-control ocean!
Maybe I could start my own religion, they are not tax, right? Or claim I'm a non-profit organization, that would be true since I don't make profit!
Or what about buying an island and declaring it a country. I would be the absolute ruler, I would not tax myself. Anyone know where I could buy an island for no more than $100? I don't mind how small it is, as long I can have a pickelball court on it, I'll be happy!
