Today I mailed several big checks, as I do every quarter. This year I got slammed

even more than usual because as my CPA says "I did not buy enough stuff to write

off". I call it playing it safe in an uncertain economy. I wish everyone was self-

employed and had to stroke a check each month, maybe then everyone would realize

how much they pay and in turn how much is wasted. I have nothing against paying

taxes, I just think it should be fair and even for all.

I heard there was a "Tea Party" in Newport News and a lot of other places today, so

I joined the crowd of several hundred to show my dis-pleasure of the current tax

system. I was thrilled to see such a turn out. I hope some day things will "change".

The less taxes I pay, the earlier I can retire and go fishing more often. Here are a

couple of pictures I took today. Thanks for reading my tax rant.

Here are some more pictures from today. I love the right to assemble and the freedom of speech. I also think it is cool that I am on a

message board posting pictures of people with message boards.

Monday April 13th 2009 was tax freedom day. :eusa_dance:

That means for the average US worker all their earnings from Jan 1 2009 till April 13th went to pay their taxes. So now we are finally working for ourselves. This actually worked out to be about 2 -3 weeks earlier then last year do to the tax cuts of the previous administration.

Brian, thanks for contributing.

You are now officially listed as a dissident.

According to the footnotes in a Homeland Security report issued on 4/13, you are to be watched.

The foot note lists dissidents (anyone exercising their 1st Amd Rights), gun Rights, pro-life, VETERANS, Earth Liberation Front, Animal Liberation Front (these last two have firebombed businesses), and persons concerned about immigration.

Welcome to a government watch list.

(my name is a few hundred thousand above your's, LOL!!!!!!)
