I totaled the amount of federal, state, and local taxes I paid so far in my lifetime.
I did it on a whim and doing so gave me an arrogant sense of entitlement. Now I want the government to mow my lawn, paint my house, and kiss my ass.
Politicians really do suck. They are not public servants; they are self-serving parasites. Republicans want to do nothing when they should do something, and Democrats want to do something when they should do nothing.
A high school student recently bragged to me that he would be earning a million dollars a year by the time he retired. I smiled at him and said that by the time the government inflates this debt away, a million dollars a year would be the minimum wage.
