I’m the Taxman…

Maybe It’s just me…

but Lennon & McCartney had it right 40 years ago…


One, two, three, four…
One, two, (one, two, three, four!)

Let me tell you how it will be;
There’s one for you, nineteen for me.
‘Cause I’m the taxman,
Yeah, I’m the taxman.

Should five per cent appear too small,
Be thankful I don’t take it all.
‘Cause I’m the taxman,
Yeah, I’m the taxman.

(if you drive a car) – I’ll tax the street;
(if you try to sit) – I’ll tax your seat;
(if you get too cold) – I’ll tax the heat;
(if you take a walk) – I’ll tax your feet.


‘Cause I’m the taxman,
Yeah, I’m the taxman.

Don’t ask me what I want it for,

If you don’t want to pay some more.
‘Cause I’m the taxman,
Yeah, I’m the taxman.

Now my advice for those who die, (taxman)
Declare the pennies on your eyes. (taxman)
‘Cause I’m the taxman,
Yeah, I’m the taxman.

And you’re working for no one but me.


Take a look at this…

This is just a short list of taxes we are subject to.

There will be more on the horizon.

This is what is around the corner when it comes to our tax liability now that we have a “Trillion Dollar” porkulus bill.

It is only a matter of time and certainty.

Is it too early to say I told you so? We are not even into a month of Obama’s term in office and we have had embarrassing cabinet resignations, offensive remarks made by his staff, signs of Government threats and intimidation made by our own President and a reckless pork laden stimulus bill that has guarrenteed an extreme tax burden on us, our children and grandchildren.

It is keeping me up at night wondering what the next few months will bring…

We have no one to blame but ourselves… we could have stopped this from happening.

As President Obama gives his best “It’s going to get worse before it gets better” speech tonight,  I wonder if the ground around Ronald Reagan’s tomb isn’t turned up from all the tossing and turning he will do tonight listening to all the socialist, left-wing,  I’m the taxman and you work for me rhetoric coming from OUR Whitehouse.

But then again…maybe it’s just me.
