Tax his land, tax his wage,
Tax his bed in which he lays.
Tax his tractor, tax his mule,
Teach him taxes is the rule.
Tax his cow, tax his goat,
Tax his pants, tax his coat.
Tax his ties, tax his shirts,
Tax his work, tax his dirt.
Tax his tobacco, tax his drink,
Tax him if he tries to think.
Tax his booze, tax his beers,
If he cries, tax his tears.
Tax his bills, tax his gas,
Tax his notes, tax his cash.
Tax him good and let him know
That after taxes, he has no dough.
If he hollers, tax him more,
Tax him until he’s good and sore.
Tax his coffin, tax his grave,
Tax the sod in which he lays.
Put these words upon his tomb,
“Taxes drove me to my doom!”
And when he’s gone, we won’t relax,
We’ll still be after the inheritance TAX,
Hey maybe you’ll get a refund!!

COMMENTS: Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago and our nation was the most prosperous in the world, had absolutely no national debt, had the largest middle class in the world and Mom stayed home to raise the kids.
The Wall Street Journal has a piece titled The Obama Rosetta Stone which is an interesting read. Find there a graph titled “Top One Percent of Earners Have Been Increasing Their Share” which shows an ever increasing percentage of “total income” greedily stolen by the top 1% from the hides of the downtrodden masses.
The WSJ takes the angle of discrediting the chart with a combination of ad hominem and ridicule. Whatever you think about that chart, as I think little of it, it lays out a marker that the Obama Administration will be using for the next 4 years (gah! maybe 8 [sob]). Lucky for us, there is a very clear rebuttal to this chart.
Mark J Perry’s post has it in an eerily familiar looking shape…
Here is the key data point: While the “share of income” going to the top 1% has risen to around 23%, the share of the tax burden on the top 1% has risen to almost 40%.
This data ends in 2006, I wonder what these lines will look like when President Obama’s “soak the rich” tax plan goes into effect. I’m fairly certain that it will not be pretty.
