OMG! THEY GAVE ‘EM TAX CUTS!

WHOSE MONEY IS IT?

Before everyone on the left spontaneously explodes into flames before a CNN camera… let’s discuss reality. A “TAX” takes money from the person who OWNS the money. So what these people are screaming about is that a law was passed saying the federal government will not TAKE AS MUCH AWAY from you when you make it.

Is that really GIVING you money?

 

HOW TAX CUTS WORK

To put it in real world terms… imagine, after a week of work you cashed a paycheck. You and your wife walk home via a dark alley lined with sleeping men with hands folded over paper bags covering bottles of Jack Daniels whiskey or Boone’s Farm wine.

From the shadows emerges a guy in a nice suit, who sticks a gun to your ribs and demands your money, your watch, and your wedding ring.

You comply, but as you hand him the wedding ring he relents, and in a moment of uncharacteristic largesse, allows you to keep it. You smile at his kindness. He begins handing your money to the guys sleeping in the alley.

How Taxes Really Work

THE AFTERMATH

Suddenly, from out of nowhere emerges Chuck Schumer… screaming to a camera that the guy in the suit didn’t “give” rings to anyone ELSE in the alley.

Joining him, Nancy Pelosi demands to know how the guy in the suit intends to pay for the LOSS of the wedding ring.

She points out that given their joint monthly expenditures on crack and prostitutes he can’t possibly afford such generous measures. “How in the hell will you pay for our crack if you run around giving away wedding rings!?”

Next, all the guys that’d been sleeping in the alley pull out the latest iPhone to share pictures of you on social media.

They complain that you were GIVEN a ring by the guy in the suit, but they were not. They discuss how unfair it is, wryly note that your paycheck just doesn’t seen to go as far these days, and gripe about the inadequate recognition of alley-sleepers in general.

They then make plans get together next week after the Superbowl party and protest.

  1. Taxation is theft, taking the product of another’s labor by force, literally.
    If anyone doubts that, try not paying your taxes. The goons with guns will come for your money.
    People will put a little lipstick on that pig and call it taxes and mutter about the social contract and the “price we pay to live in a society” but none of that magically transforms the act of theft into something voluntary.

    1. If taxes were taken ONLY for the handful of items that are the federal government’s responsibility per the Constitution, I’d make an attempt to disagree.

      Somewhere along the line in the early 20th century the tendency to view damned near EVERYTHING as the responsibility of the federal government came into Vogue, and slowly but surely the government became our parents.

  2. One of the complaints about this bill was that it didn’t extend tax cuts to low income individuals. If your income falls below a certain level, you already don’t have to pay any tax. Just how do you give a tax cut to someone who doesn’t pay any tax in the first place?
