“I like your depression site. It is quirky. It’s economics without the usual dryness.
The profligate spending by government to prop up real estate with our money really is poor.
Now as I inch toward retirement I’m getting more and more a feeling of the destructive effects of income tax.
I work hard in several part-time jobs keeping my family off the welfare lines. Do I get thanked?
No! Every quarter I get punished by having to send a huge pile of $$$ to the government.
Then they take my money and pump it into the real estate bubble.”
As I tweeted yesterday @bryankav123, who knows now that the USA only introduced income tax ‘temporarily’ for WWI, and Australia (which had a federal land tax from 1910 to 1952) introduced it federally as a WWII measure?
