Ah, that great Bob Segar line that spoke a truth we can all relate to.

Remember when you were a happy little kid? Blissful ignorance, there was so much you didn't know and didn't care. You cared about the things that made you happy.

As you got older, you knew more, cared about different things, and were less happy. A few more years, same old story. And here you are.

But, hey, you got a lot of years of happiness behind you because you didn't know you needed to care about something.

Except for this poor kid. He learned something that will ruin his happiness for the rest of his life.



That's right, kid. This lesson will haunt you for decades.

It's not funny!

I'm 30 years old and still cry every time I see my paycheck. 150-200 gone every week. And somehow I still owe even more at the end of the year!

A lot of Democratic voters here don't have to pay taxes because the government already just pays them to breathe and vote.

So they don't have to play the game.. they are just a piece on the board instead of being a player.

Awesome post though.

Got a giggle out of me.

What about the unhappiness I experienced when my parents insisted that I ate my beets before I could get up from the table? They told me people in Africa were starving and I should be grateful for the beets. I told the parents- pack it up and ship it to them then. I was such a little sh@t. I had to sit there for hours and I won out, didn't have to eat those darn beets. Funny thing, they never insisted I eat beets again.

I do love most of the vegetables; beets and cream corn are my bottom line NO.


Wish I could do the same for taxes.

And every time anyone anywhere has a big winning lottery ticket uncle Sam is standing right there with his hand out to get his cut and didn't even have to buy a ticket and take the time to process it, scratch it off, wait for the numbers, etc.
All he had to do was pass lottery into law and he wins again. Uncle Sam
