Today is national tax freedom day - the day we all start working for ourselves instead of the government. Here in Indiana it was a little better, occurring coincidentally on the 18th, the day when both state and federal taxes were due. Seems every year it grows by a day or so, however. There's been a lot of talk lately by a couple of the Presidential candidates about income inequality - strikes me as a little less than genuine coming from someone who makes $250,000.00 per speech, as does one of the candidates, but no-one seems to be too interested in taking less money from all of us working stiffs. I don't know about you, but I'd be much better off if the various taxing agencies only took a fourth of my money rather than a third. I really don't care how much money the very wealthy have. Good for them. Just quit diggin' so deep in my pocket.
