I decided to do a post in honor of tax day, but I couldn’t get to the post office in time. Whatever. Those beltway boneheads won’t sue me if it’s a day late. Which brings me to the d-bag issue at hand: It literally does not take one brain cell for a d-bag to know that a flat national income tax is better than a progressive tax. Some of the more well educated readers of this blog (Liberty University, Stanford) will know what I am talking about when I say Laffer’s curve shows without a doubt that a flat tax is more fair than the state sanctioned robbery that happens every April 15th. What Laffer proposed was brilliantly simple and a devastating blow to tax and spend types: The more you tax someone, the less incentive they have to work. Is it any wonder that we still have a progressive tax in this country and we also still have city streets jammed up with Cadillacs being driven by welfare queens, orange security alerts at airports, and Muslims? I think not. A truly Laffable tax would mean that each person pays his (or her) fair share to maintain the common weal by paying a simple thirteen percent of their income. Steve Forbes, a self-made, everyman billionaire (no one can be that awkward and not be for real!) got my vote the minute he put aside his own personal benefit from the present corrupt tax code and advocated the iron-clad thirteen percent flat tax. Imagine that! I would pay just as much tax as Steve Forbes! That means, for all intensive purposes and despite the fact that the damn credit card sharks are threatening to repossess my Dodge Nitro, I am Steve Forbes! America: the land where every man is equal — though only the strong are achievers.
