Heres a nice poem from a friend of mine who I know from some other boards. It seems that its gone Viral in a very short time, so since it not shared here - I guess I'll do the honors, hoping others do the same

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

Tax his work,
Tax his pay,
He works for peanuts

Tax his cow,
Tax his goat,
Tax his pants,
Tax his coat.

Tax his tobacco,
Tax his drink,
Tax him if he
Tries to think.

Tax his car,
Tax his gas,
Find other ways
To tax his ass.

Tax all he has
Then let him know
That you won't be done
Till he has no dough.

When he screams and hollers;
Then tax him some more,
Tax him till
He's good and sore.

Then tax his coffin,
Tax his grave,
Tax the sod in
Which he's laid.

When he's gone,
Do not relax,
It's time to apply
The inheritance tax.

Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago, & our nation was one of the most prosperous in the world... We had absolutely no national debt, had a large middle class,a huge manufacturing base, and Mum stayed home to raise the kids.

What in the Hell happened? Could it be the lying parasitic politicians wasting our money?
Oh, and don't forget the relatively new bank charges....
And we all know what we think of Bankers.

I hope this goes around the UK at least 1000 times!!!

YOU can help it get there!


Hope you enjoyed the poem people, share it please
Sometimes the simplist ways are the most effective

I liked it better when George Harrison said it

At the time, the Beatles were subject to a 95% "supertax" (Let me tell you how it will be, there's one for you 19 for me)

I'm amazed by those who scream about others paying more taxes or their "fair share".

How about demanding that the rest of us pay less!

As it is now, the AVERAGE American is taxed on one third of his income, between state and federal. This means that the first four months of every year are spent working simply to pay the IRS...

And thats JUST income tax. Doesnt even include property taxes, gas taxes, alcohol tax, cigarette tax, sales tax, estate tax, tolls, I think you get the idea.

I was reading an article the other day, that said 75p of every pound is spent on Tax. Thats shocking to say the least. It means only 25p of every pound is actually going back into public circulation - No wonder the economey is #ed.

Tax here in the UK on petrol (Gas in the US) is 60%

I haven't checked out cigarettes (Being a non smoker
) but I think it could even be higher

However if 'push comes to shove' cigarettes can be done without ...but petrol??
