“Tax day 2021 came and went. I don’t know about you, but my wallet is lighter. As always, I had to write a big check to the IRS. I was not pleased. But shouldn’t I take solace in the fact that I’m helping create a more civilized society? That’s the mantra, right? Taxes are the price we pay for a civilized society. I’m supposed to understand that the government takes its ill-gotten gains and makes the world a better place. That has the ring of government propaganda, doesn’t it? Given the price tag, we should have a lot of civilizing at this point. I think we’re getting hosed.” (05/04/22)
