State of our nation?

Someone posted this on Faecesbook.  I thought it quite interesting.  Not my own work - repost.
At first I thought this was funny....Then I realized the awful truth of it. Be sure to read all the way to the end!

Tax his land,
Tax his bed,
Tax the table
At which he's fed.
Tax his work,
Tax his pay,
He works for peanuts
Anyway!
Tax his cow,
Tax his goat,
Tax his pants,
Tax his coat.
Tax his tobacco,
Tax his drink,
Tax him if he
Tries to think.
Tax his car,
Tax his gas,
Find other ways
To tax his ass.
Tax all he has
Then let him know
That you won't be done
Till he has no dough.
When he screams and hollers;
Then tax him some more,
Tax him till
He's good and sore.
Then tax his coffin,
Tax his grave,
Tax the sod in
Which he's laid.
When he's gone,
Do not relax,
It's time to apply
The inheritance tax.
Accounts Receivable Tax
Airline surcharge tax
Airline Fuel Tax
Airport Maintenance Tax
Building Permit Tax
Cigarette Tax
Cooking Tax
Corporate Income Tax
Goods and Services Tax (GST)
Death Tax
Driving Permit Tax
Environmental Tax (Fee)
Excise Taxes

Fishing License Tax
Food License Tax
Petrol Tax (too much per litre)
Gross Receipts Tax
Health Tax
Heating Tax
Inheritance Tax
Interest Tax
Lighting Tax
Liquor Tax
Luxury Taxes
Marriage License Tax
Medicare Tax
Mortgage Tax
Pension Tax
Personal Income Tax
Property Tax
Poverty Tax

Real Estate Tax
Recreational Vehicle Tax
Retail Sales Tax
Service Charge Tax
School Tax
Telephone Tax
Value Added Tax
Vehicle License Registration Tax
Vehicle Sales Tax
Water Tax
Workers Compensation Tax
Tax (VAT) on Tax.
And Now they want a blooming Carbon Tax!
STILL THINK THIS IS FUNNY?
Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago, & our nation was one of the most prosperous in the world... We had absolutely no national debt, had a large middle class,a huge manufacturing base, and Mum stayed home to raise the kids.
What in the Hell happened? Could it be the lying parasitic politicians wasting our money?
Oh, and don't forget the relatively new bank charges....
And we all know what we think of Bankers.

Relax - we used to be serfs with a duty to provide labour to the local Lord of the Manor. What you see now is just a modern variation.
Now Zen, but a +Net residue.

Which Nation is it referring to? Because it's certainly not the UK

Dunno, when I was a kid not many women seemed to work - especially those who were married. Now both work every hour god sends and are still short on cash.
The bottom line is that everything is taxed. The more money that is taken from you the less you have.
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

Re: State of our nation?

The status quo will remain because of why the status quo is.
I often think to myself that really it's a sort of mafia. Pay your 'protection money' or you'll be dealt with. What is funnier is all those who say with pride 'I pay my taxes' and who utterly fail to see they are proud of their servitude. What is even funnier than that, to me, is those who pay their taxes griping about those, private or corporate, who are not paying taxes. Talk about misdirection of rage in a sort of Stockholm Syndrome kind of way. What better slave could a master ask for?

I don't think I am. Besides which, I do like to put flashing lights on many an 'invisible' elephant.
