Taxes!!

Paid our taxes today. Aargh.

Afterwards, kid came asking us to take her to the art store to buy her some clay -- that kind that bakes in the oven.

"I feel like making something with my hands," she explained wistfully.

"Sorry," I said. "George Bush just took all our money. Call your grandma. Maybe she has some left."

Think this was wrong of me?

(Like I care, so long as she GROWS UP TO HATE REPUBLICANS!!!)

Hating Republicans is good. Hating both Republicans and Democrats and, well, politicians in general is even better :).

I don't mind paying taxes. I like roads, like to think that giving kids access to education is important, and so forth.

I hate paying for a war I think is criminally wrong, however. But I'm too much of a coward to be willing to go to jail for it.

I'm not opposed to paying taxes, either. I love the FDA and the NEA and the highway system, I could name a dozen others; taxes are the price of the ticket of having a country that works. I'm just broke now, that's all.
