Internal Revenue Service Blood Money

16 Apr

I just sent in my blood money yesterday to the IRS. I call it blood money because it is just a tribute paid at the end of a gun to avoid death or prison. When I see all the waste that goes on with my tax money it makes my blood boil. Since I am self employed I pay both parts of Social Security and Medicare. You add that to my Federal Income tax, sales tax, property tax, gas tax, utility tax, etc. etc. and my tax rate is approaching 50%. It is just a losing battle, so here is a tune that sums it all up, Tennessee Ernie Ford, 16 tons.

You load 16 tons and what do you get, another day older and deeper in debt. Saint Peter don’t you call me cause I can’t go, I owe my soul to the company store.
