Day724 Wednesday 08/22/12

ran 4.3 miles
In case you didn't know, according to the IRS, 81,890,189 tax returns were filed in 2009 that reported taxable income. Let that number sink in. That means a lot of different things.

For starters, there are 314-something-million people in America. That means only one out of every four people you share this nation with even file income taxes. The other three pay nothing...and that was 2009.  It's obvious why Barack Obama has the unexplainable momentum he does---he has numbers on a side this nation did everything it could think of to prevent when its Constitution was written.

Second, the burden of our national debt has been expanded by our Oval Office Food Stamp King by $5,258,977,706,438.39.  What does that mean to you if you happen to pay taxes? You just inherited a $64,000.00 obligation for your nation. Add those fifteen digits to the fifteen digits of debt that Barack Obama swore his presidential oath on and we are at $15,885,854,755,351.47.  Now, if you happen to earn enough to pay taxes, your national debt burden is $193,000.

Lastly, here is a fresh perspective to interpret your tax dollars at work. If you work and pay taxes the way one in nearly four of us seem to do at a tax rate of, let's say, 20%, among the whole spectrum of local, state, and federal taxes, you are basically working for free from January 1 to March 15 of every single year. 

That stings...not because I have a problem with paying into the collective but because so many others do have a problem with it...and, they feel entitled to the collective they do so little to earn a piece of. This is not America.
