All the good things in life are impossible without the state, and the better life gets, the more of your money the state should get. Out of gratitude, of course, as well as “necessity” (that is, the armed state screaming “FEED ME” — in a bipartisan chorus, naturally).
Your taxes are going up for your own good, you see. Where else can you get excellent medical care but through the state? And a college education? The private sector can’t do that right! Ah, the good life that higher taxes will bring.
When we’re living in shacks, thanks to all this government largess, at least we’ll be able to paper the walls of our outhouses with New York Times stock certificates.7:14 am on February 25, 2009 Email Christopher Manion
