Thank you for your concern but we have the situation well in hand.
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

I don't see taxation as an issue of "how much" so much as simplification. Just set a rate and have people pay it. Once we start getting into deductions and credits and all the other stuff, we end up with those situations where some people pay nothing and others pay more than they probably should be paying. Additionally, we have to hire someone to prepare our taxes because it is often beyond the average person's abilities. Heck, it seems every year we hear stories of the folks at the IRS who give different answers to the same question. Additionally, as we found out, the IRS has so much power the corruption has led to some very frightening actions on their part.

I seem to recall Steve Forbes once suggesting that our taxes should be so simple that we fill them out on a return postcard. I like that idea.

I wonder how many of you guys here have always voted for the same party and always will.

What does that have to do with taxes?

Every thread is engineered with a self-destruct mechanism built inside. Eventually each thread will turn political or religious which causes a chain reaction of back handed insults and personal attacks. I'm very fond of the ones with animation in them.

So all you guys here have always voted for the same party and always will and so what does that tell you about the state you are in.

Unless the animation is deleted by biased censorship!

I have become a great fan of your posts. Shame your humour is not shared by many.
