Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago, and our nation was the most prosperous in the world. 

We had absolutely no national debt, had the largest middle class in the world, and Mom did not have to have a job to earn money, she could stay home to raise the kids. 

What happened? Can you spell 'politicians!'?

And I still have to 'press 1 for English'.

Today's Reflection:
What hair color do they put on the driver's licenses of bald men?
Live Long and Prosper...
