Taxes should provide for the common defence (of America) and the Court system as honest brokers between free citizens. Everything else should be funded by the people wo actually want it.
Well, who wouldn't? Did you know that little tax haven Jersey (Channel Islands), off the sores of both Britain and France, has the highest per capita membership in Mensa in the world? Any idea why that might be?
We used to think he was the antichrist. Nowadays it seems clear that even Satan is tired of him. If you don't believe in God or Satan, ask Saruman how that bargain worked out for him.

They will be, as soon as Junior is old enough to be bullied by his classmates. He'll be lucky if he doesn't grow up to be Norman Bates.

It's all right there in "Brave New World" ... if you haven't read it lately, read it now. If you haven't ever read it, read it. If you can't read, there are audio versions available. If you can't read a whole book, read the chapter in which Mustapha Mond explains to John Savage succinctly and in clear, unambiguous language the exact building blocks used to build that Brave New World. This nasty little photo is just another brick in that wall...another toddler running into Mommy's cocktail party stark nekkid shouting "Poo Poo Head!" to see if anybody applauds.
Yes, we are KEEPING THE JOBS THAT THE YOUNGER GENERATION BELIEVES SOMEHOW BELONG TO THEM. The reason is often that we can actually spell, punctuate, paragraph, read, write, show up on time, stay all day, work while we're at work, and go the extra mile...and our heads are not buried in that two-inch screen between our thumbs instead of in the work we are being paid to do. And it's worth keeping us on because we're not going to get pregnant and go on an extended maternity leave just when we're starting to have a clue about what our job actually entails.
