Quote Of The Day: Tax Day Editionby Doug Mataconis
From the always entertaining Dave Barry:
Taxpayers: It’s almost April 15, and you know what that means. It means the Miami Dolphins already have been mathematically eliminated from the playoffs.
But it’s also time to file your federal tax return. Yes, this is a pesky chore, but remember that paying taxes is not a ”one-way street.” When you send your money to the government, the government, in return, provides you with vital services, such as not putting you in prison. The government also uses your money to pay for programs that benefit all Americans, such as the Catfish Genome Project.
See it’s not all bad. You’re not in prison and the government is making hybrid catfish.
