I wonder if such a thing happens in other industrialized countries? (Great Britain, Canada, Australia, France, Germany, Japan, et al?)
I wonder what will happen when the percentage of those paying NO Federal Income Taxes surpasses 50 percent?
I wonder what will happen when our national debt equals - or exceeds - our GDP (Gross Domestic Product)?
I wonder what will happen when the 20-somethings, 30-somethings, and 40-somethings realize their future is saddled with a huge unsecured debt?
I wonder what will happen when the 20-somethings, 30-somethings, and 40-somethings realize they've been saddled with huge unfunded entitlement obligations to others?
I wonder what will happen when .....
But what the hell? Many of those 20-somethings, 30-somethings, and 40-somethings actually voted for it! To them: Have fun sleeping in the bed you made.
This madness is simply not sustainable.
The progressives have been able to trump reality by playing the compassion card. But in the end, they will be proven to be the Jokers - unfortunately, it will come at the expense of the rest of the deck.
Yes, I wrote a pretty big check today. And not only am I not thanked for it, but I'm actually ridiculed. Maybe they want my heart as well?
As hard as I try, and as hard as I work, funding my own retirement remains that elusive butterfly. Other people just won't allow me to do it. And the check I wrote today proves it - maybe when I'm 80 or when pigs fly.
Maybe I should chuck the effort and become a ward of the state. Maybe I'll just do what's necessary so I can become a tax receiver instead of a tax payer. Maybe I'm on the wrong band-wagon. Yea, that's it; I'm on the wrong band-wagon.
Happy tax day!
