Happy Taxation Day!

Happy Taxation Day!

Being a person of good will, I would like to send out my heartfelt best wishes to those of you who worship at the alter of Big Government as this is certainly your most holiest of days.

As I cross my T’s, dot my I’s and check my math one last time before I write that check to pay homage to the Big Gov, I thought I would reflect on those things that we are forced to be most thankful for (in no particular order):

Elected Representatives who have been in office longer than I have been alive making a salary that is 3 times average and who have health care benefits and a pension that most Americans can only dream of. Surely they are the most blessed among you.

An unelected Department of Education running a system that produces students who not only can’t spell Constitution, but think the only words contained within it are “separation of church and state”.

An unelected Food and Drug Administration that seeks to ban multi-vitamins as unsafe but happily gives us Vioxx to extend our lives.

A Campaign Finance Law that concentrates the power to influence elections in the hands of the most wealthy individuals, corporations and foreign countries.

A federal defense system that is such a bureaucratic nightmare that it couldn’t get out of it’s own way in the face of a natural disaster.

A volunteer army that is sent off to fight a war with both arms tied behind it’s back because of politically correct rules of engagement.

A government mandated and brutally enforced Ponzi scheme that is sure to break the backs as well as the bank accounts of our children and grandchildren in the name of our social security and medical care.

A government-protected shakedown industry where ambulance-chasing trial attorneys can use junk science to destroy physicians while lining their pockets with punitive damage funds so that they can build 30,000 square foot mansions and run for president.

$3.00 per gallon gas prices purchased from enemies of America while we watch the Chinese drill for oil 60 miles of the coast of Florida.

An immigration policy that punishes those who try to enter legally and follow the rules while rewarding those who sneak in with free health care, discount mortgages and student loans.

50% of Americans funding government programs that rewards the other 50% who don’t pay.

A $2 Trillion budget that mandates uneconomical corn ethanol production as a reward for campaign donations from corn farmers, useless embryonic stem cell research as a reward for campaign donations from the abortion industry and bridges to no where in return for campaign donations from the construction industry.

For these things and so much more, we celebrate this day. Season greetings to the disciples of Big Government and God help the rest of us.
