The T3sk3y Defenestrator

My Tax Day Exemption

As I’ve recapped on every Tax Day for a third consecutive year.. I’ve got one and only one rule on the Defenestrator.

Thou shalt not talk about politics.

So, as to not talk about politics and to keep my own rule, I’m going to let others echo my sentiments about the day. Some are wise, some not so wise, some are just plain colorful – but I agree with all of them on this particular topic.

We use our tax dollars to pay some bureaucrat to kill a mountain lion, dig a hole and bury this precious beast. No one gets to eat it, nobody gets to buy licenses, fees and taxes themselves. And that’s only after a mountain lion has killed somebody! Oh my God! And the Osbournes are still No. 1! – Ted Nugent

The trick is to stop thinking of it as ‘your’ money. -Revenue Auditor

Your federal government needs your money so that it can perform vital services for you that you would not think up yourself in a million years. – Dave Barry (US columnist)

If you make any money, the government shoves you in the creek once a year with it in your pockets, and all that don’t get wet you can keep. ~Will Rogers

America is a land of taxation that was founded to avoid taxation. ~Laurence J. Peter

Why does a slight tax increase cost you two hundred dollars and a substantial tax cut save you thirty cents? ~Peg Bracken

Unquestionably, there is progress. The average American now pays out twice as much in taxes as he formerly got in wages. ~H.L. Mencken

The nation should have a tax system that looks like someone designed it on purpose. ~William Simon

Did you ever notice that when you put the words “The” and “IRS” together, it spells “THEIRS?” ~Author Unknown

And finally.. to close out this tax day – on which you will still be working for the government for another month – a couple from Ronald Reagan:

We don’t have a trillion-dollar debt because we haven’t taxed enough; we have a trillion-dollar debt because we spend too much. –Ronald Reagan

Millions of individuals making their own decisions in the marketplace will always allocate resources better than any centralized government planning process. –Ronald Reagan

Happy Tax Day, everyone..
