SINCE we’re circling the tax subject, Mister Stantis, ’toon after ’toon – pointedly ignoring the latest venal follies of The Donald – I too shall circle:
“Taxes are the price we pay for a civilised society.” — Supreme Court Justice Brandeis.
Now, carrying on, suppose Fred’s got 20 things, Lucy’s got 2 things and it takes 1 thing – that would be ONE thing – to pay for a civilised society. Does it make more sense to tax that thing from Fred or from Lucy? Seems like a no-brainer to me, but you — you and The Trumpet — what are you thinking? Barbarism would be SUCH a better form of ‘government’?
