    What are you getting taxed for?

    OK, let's break this down as much as we can. I cannot think of a single thing in my life that is not somehow connected to being taxed.

    How about you?

    I get taxed for having a job.
    I've made some bad decisions like taking the gears off my bike. So here's the warning: Do not as I say, nor as I do.

    More infinitely, you get taxed for being alive.

    Although I will say my boss at work and a particular co worker heavily tax me every day.

    Despite these examples I'm a cheery guy - honest.

    I take St. Johns Wort every day to keep my cheer up, otherwise taxes would kill me.

    ...and you know what, I paid sales tax for that bottle of tax stress reliever!

    Even our planes are taxing down the runway. Nothing is safe from this government onslaught.

    So does it work? I might gobble a few handfuls and see what happens. I'll gladly pay 10% tax for that stuff if its effective.

    Believe it or not, yes it does work (for me, at least). I've been ill for almost a month now. It was suggested to me by a friend in the medical field to start taking it to help me deal with my ailment while I heal and I think I can say that it actually has helped. You have to take it 3 times a day, though.

    Sounds promising, I just might pony up a few $$ and get me some of that.

    I get a reverse tax.
    I launder my income through an anonymous off-shore account.
    Everything else gets claimed as a business & investment expense.
    Running a hookers & blow enterprise is hard work.

    Since they have "death taxes", how do you pay if you're already dead?
