    I recently saw a liscense plate from Washington D.C., it read TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION. Then it struck me as to why the White House demonizes the Tea Party after I looked at my taxes and realized Washington D.C. doesn't represent you unless you are gay, on food stamps, black, an illegal immigrant or all of the above.

    As Hamsta mentioned, today is tax day. But did you ever notice that when you put together the words THE and IRS, they spell "THEIRS" ?

    If a lawyer and an IRS agent were both drowning, and you could only save one of
    them, would you: (1) go to lunch or (2) read the paper?

    Dear Internal Revenue Service:

    Enclosed you will find my 2006 tax return showing that I owe
    $3,407.00 in taxes. Please note the attached article from the USA
    Today newspaper, dated 12 November, wherein you will see the
    Pentagon (Department of Defense) is paying
    $171.50 per hammer and NASA has paid $600.00 per toilet seat.

    I am enclosing four (4) toilet seats (valued @ $2,400) and six
    (6) hammers valued @ $1,029), which I secured at Home Depot,
    bringing my total remittance to $3,429.00. Please apply the
    overpayment of $22.00 to the “Presidential Election Fund,” as
    noted on my return. You can do this inexpensively by sending them
    one (1) 1.5″ Phillips Head screw (see aforementioned article from
    USA Today newspaper detailing how H.U.D. pays $22.00 each for
    1.5″ Phillips Head Screws). One screw is enclosed for your

    It has been a pleasure to pay my tax bill this year, and I look
    forward to paying it again next year.


    A Satisfied Taxpayer

    A man, called to testify at the IRS, asked his accountant for advice on what to wear. "Wear your shabbiest clothing. Let him think you are a pauper."
    Then he asked his lawyer the same question, but got the opposite advice. "Do not let them intimidate you. Wear your most elegant suit and tie.
    Confused, the man went to his rabbi, told him of the conflicting advice, and requested some resolution of the dilemma.
    "Let me tell you a story," replied the rabbi. "A woman, about to be married, asked her mother what to wear on her wedding night. 'Wear a heavy, long, flannel nightgown that goes right up to your neck.' But when she asked her best friend, she got conflicting advice: 'Wear your most se xy negligee, with a V neck right down to your navel.
    The man protested, "What does all this have to do with my problem with the IRS?"
    "No matter what you wear, you are going to get screwed."
