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,
Airline Fuel Tax, Airport Maintenance Tax,

Building Permit  Tax, Cigarette Tax,
Corporate Income Tax, Goods and Services Tax (GST) 
Death tax, Driving Permit Tax,
Environmental Tax  (Fee), Excise Taxes 

Income Tax, Fishing License Tax
Food License Tax, Petrol Tax (too much per litre)

Gross  Receipts Tax, Health Tax
Inheritance Tax, Interest Tax Heating Tax
Lighting Tax, Cooking Tax,
Liquor Tax, Luxury Taxes 
Marriage License Tax, Medicare Tax 
Mortgage Tax, Personal Income Tax  
Property Tax, Poverty Tax, 
Prescription Drug Tax, Real Estate Tax

blooming  Carbon Tax!


Not one of these taxes existed in the UK 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 on earth 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.

This is so true that it is painful...I had to read it over again just to make sure I had suffered enough! Yep, I've had enough!

My Dad always used to say the taxman only had three questions.
1. How much do you earn?
2. Where do you keep it?
3. How can I get hold of it?

It pretty much sums it up!

You hit the nail on the head there.

We will soon be taxed for breathing the air we use.

And you know what really gets me Maggie? They say the standard rate of tax is 20% but if you add the 12% National Insurance its actually a basic rate of 32%. Talk of the National Health Service being Free? Don't make me laugh.

There's got to be a better way than this Mimi. If only they would put us in charge.

There is no doubt that there is mismanagement and a welfare system that is engorged, but that said...Britain is no longer an empire and what are your natural resources? You're a tiny, overcrowded island nation that does amazingly well and is still amazingly important and powerful considering what you don't have. In my country the middle class are carrying the load and the uber rich don't give proportionally near enough. It's a mess.

This is a brilliant post, I've just shared it with some of my followers on Twitter. It's unbelievably true; a scandal if ever there was one.

Ah, yes. What on earth did we do without politicians? I blame Oliver Cromwell!

What really makes people sick is that they pay all their working lives, and then when they need the handouts they're not there.
