Brazil Phone Madness

Random Tax-Day Thought

Recently I was listening to the radio, and some Federal bureaucrat was talking about the estate tax, and why it couldn't be repealed. He honked something about, "You're talking about billions of dollars that the federal government needs, and you're wanting to take it away! I don't think that's very fair, do you?"

The mental image that immedately came to mind was an overweight, spoiled kid getting told by the local funeral director that he can't barge in during wakes to snag hors d'ourves anymore.

Behold, our federal government!
