Tax

Post by Ponderosa on Sun Mar 18, 2012 4:28 pm

At first I thought this was funny....Then I realised the awful truth of it. Be sure to read all the way to the end!

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

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

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.

Accounts Receivable Tax
Airline surcharge tax

Airport Maintenance Tax
Building Permit Tax
Cigarette Tax
Corporate Income Tax
Goods and Services Tax (GST)

And Now they want a blooming Carbon Tax!

STILL THINK THIS IS FUNNY?

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!

Yes the Empire was great - but at the cost of enslaving whole populations and keeping the working people in abject poverty. We had a huge manufacturing base as people were virtually forced to buy British.
Tax was almost exclusively introduced to fight wars. After that the Successive governments couldn't get out of the habit. I don't want to go into why we lost our manufacturing base, as that is complex, sometimes controversial and not fully understandable. Now the only way the country keeps it together is with Duty and taxation, there are just too many "bills" to pay, Defence, Social, administrative, foreign aid, Quangos, Police, Fire, Health, Education, Prisons etc. the list is endless. Us "ordinaries" are just pawns. But we aren't starving - yet!
