    Ole Bill
    yea dont it just tick ya off. there aint nuthing funny about this truth and they will keep collecting it cause the American public will keep paying it without doing anything. no one wants to stick together and say we aint going to pay it who would they lock up then cant lock everyone up cause then there wouldnt be anyone to pay it. come on America wake up and tell the government where to stick their tax ideas at. they wont be satisfied till they have it all and you have nothing.
