Scenes from work, tax policy edition....

Coworker: You know what makes me depressed. Looking at my paycheck and realizing how much I've paid in taxes. I mean, that's money that I've worked for and the government gets.

Mad Anthony. (looks at check stub). Yup. I've paid over $17,000 in taxes so far this year. That's enough to buy a nice used Lexus. And when you think about it, I don't really feel like I've gotten a Lexus worth of services from the government this year. More like a Kia worth. A very used Kia, with like 200,000 miles and a bunch of dents.
