|What is this thing you call "work" ?|
Now that we are all on the same page, I was driving home from work yesterday listening to the local AM blatherfest. Caller Steve was talking to the pseudo-conservative show hosts. Poor Steve just couldn't understand why people raise such a fuss when their taxes go up. He claimed to have an income around $800,000 and to pay about $250,000 to the federal government this year. He "would gladly pay $280,000 if his taxes went up, just to support this great country". The hosts then asked Steve why he didn't just go ahead and send that extra 30K each year to support his beloved federal government. "Well", stammered Stevie, "it wouldn't do any good for just me to do that".
Well, you know what dude? I am all tapped out.
