The Awful Truth

Lately I have been receiving some pretty interesting e-mails that put into perspective the bitter truth about our nation. Here are a couple I would like to share:

The Tax Poem

Tax his land,
Tax his bed,
Tax the table
At which he's fed.

Tax his tractor,
Tax his mule,
Teach him taxes
Are the rule.

Tax his work,
Tax his pay,
He works for peanuts

Tax his cow,
Tax his goat,
Tax his pants,
Tax his coat.

Tax his ties,
Tax his shirt,
Tax his work,
Tax his dirt.

Tax his tobacco,
Tax his drink,
Tax him if he
Tries to think.

Tax his cigars,
Tax his beers,
If he cries
Tax his tears.

Tax his car,
Tax his gas,
Find other ways
To tax his ass.

Tax all he has
Then let him know
That you won't be done
Till he has no dough.

When he screams and hollers,
Then tax him some more,
Tax him till
He's good and sore.

Then tax his coffin,
Tax his grave,
Tax the sod in
Which he's laid.

Put these words
Upon his tomb,
"Taxes drove me to my doom..."

When he's gone,
Do not relax,
Its time to apply
The inheritance tax.

Well Permit Tax
Workers Compensation Tax


Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago, and our nation was the most prosperous in the world.

We had absolutely no national debt, had the largest
middleclass in the world, and Mom stayed home to raise the kids.

What in the world happened? Can you spell "politicians?"

And I still have to "press 1" for Eng lish!?

And the second one - I liked is a quote by Adrian Rogers:

You cannont legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation.
"You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."

I don't know about anyone else but I am sick and tired of working my butt off and watching my husband work his butt off just to pay for my worthless neighbors cigarettes that they so nicely smoke beneath my windows so that I have to shut them in order to keep my house from smelling like a bar.

So this is to any worthless people who may be reading this (you know who you are and just in case you don't let me help you --- if you stand in line to get a check from the government so you can turn you power back on because you have been smoking cigarettes and drinking beer in the dark for a week -- it's you!!) GET A JOB - SO I DON'T HAVE TO PAY YOU TO ANNOY ME!!

Everyone else have a fabulous day!!!

Need Your Help

Hey Everyone!!! It has been a long time since I blogged but let's just face it - I am bad at this. Anyway I am blogging in hope of getting your help. As some of you may know I am a sucker for donating to good causes, so when I was asked to help out with the March Of Dimes Jail & Bail. This fundraiser is to raise money to help prevent premature birth of babies. This is a really good cause and the donation is 100% taxable. Please if you can go over to my website at and you can securely make any amount of donation. You can also leave me a comment with your e-mail address and I will send you my address and you can send cash or check.

I really appreciate any donation that you are willing to make (if you can). This really is a great cause. Some interesting facts:

55,000 babies are born every year in Utah
20 % of those 55,000 are born to mothers wh received inadequate prenatal care
5,512 are born preterm
300 babies die before their 1st birthday

The money donated goes to help educate high risk pregnant women and families, goes towards research to find prevention of premature birth, supports education for health professionals working toward the prevention of premature birth, and goes toward programs to help pregnant women to quit smoking.

We are all at one time or another touched by the March of Dimes!! We need to do what we can to prevent tragedies and hard times.
