The ticking sound you hear is the clock ticking down to July 6th, 2009. The day we all will see the 1.25% income tax levied on the last of our hard-earned dollars. LOIT will go down in history as one of the worse things to happen to an already struggling community.
Woe to those who place burdens on the people, grevious to bear, and never lifting a finger to ease it from their shoulders.
They stand before us with outstretched hands, pleading “We need more”. Yet they avoid their taxes, taint government agencies with corruption, use funds other then for its intended purposes, and continue these practices and others regardless of public or printed opinion.
Beautiful on the outside, beguiling us with their power to save us. On the inside they are full of dead man’s bones.
Who will speak on the people’s behalf? More important, who will listen?
