TAX DAY, and 47 percent of all adult Americans pay NO Federal Income Taxes

By maxwell edison ·
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 ****? 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!

Indeed. One CAN chose his words wisely...

by TonytheTiger In reply to That's why they call it

For example, your CHOICE of the word "instigator", without any evidence of ill-intent, implies someone who has a preconceived notion that everybody is out to get him, and is seeking an excuse to claim some sort of victimhood status, presumably as justification to try to force his views or conditions on another when merely practicing those views hasn't convinced them to see it his way.

If you pick on kids with bigfisted dads, don't whine about taking a beating.
Anyway, I was just trying to enlighten max about how his cute little agitprop blew up in his face, and how he could prevent that kind of backlash in the future.

You're absolutely right

We made our bed, and we now have to sleep in it.

Some of us, however, have been rallying for years - even decades - against the way it was being made - and we're the one's getting short-sheeted. Actually, we're all getting short-sheeted.

You mean you finally agree?

by Oz_Media In reply to You're absolutely right

I've said for years that your country could not sustain itself beased purely on eth lifestyle Americans feel they derserve to live by/ I don't know how many times I have pointed out how personal gluttony will not be sustained forever. You can blame it on whatever you choose, and YES, all governments are so currupt in that way, you are not alone, just catching up and seeing reality first hand. Recessions happen and it takes teh actions of the people to change that, not just the government. I've said before that there's nothing you can do by winging about government, all you can do is learn to live for less and make the most out of it one day at a time. Government's are screwed globally, no matter hwo's in power, and yours is no different, it's just that the people like to pretend you are above the realities others have learned to face.

You must have misunderstood, that's all

by Oz_Media In reply to It all went wrong on

America was founded on the greatest constitution ever written by mankind. If people only still rode horses and carried muskets, life in America would be perfect. If more men wore knickers and women stayed at home raising children while their slaves tended the fields, life in America would be perfect.

Damn progress screwed everything up for them.
