"Savage Goose once posted that the Australian lotto works like this, the ticket price is $1.03 AUS, the $.03 pays the tax for the winner."

We should definitely do that here. Who couldn't get behind the idea of having the losers pay the winners' taxes for them?

It is still a stupid tax no matter how they paint it.

    You're welcome, KeKe.

    I like the way Johnny Cash said it too:

     

    There's a Man goin' 'round takin' names

    And He decides who to free and who to blame

    Everybody won't be treated all the same

    There'll be a golden ladder reaching down

    When the Man comes around

     

    The hairs on your arm will stand up

    At the terror in each sip and each sup

    Will you partake of that last offered cup?

    Or disappear into the potter's ground?

    When the Man comes around

     

    Hear the trumpets, hear the pipers

    One hundred million angels singing

    Multitudes are marching

    To the big kettle drum

    Voices calling, voices crying

    Some are born and some are dying

    It's Alpha and Omega's Kingdom Come

     

    And the whirlwind is in the thorntree

    The virgins are all trimming their wicks

    The whirlwind is in the thorntree

    It's hard for thee to kick against the pricks

     

    Til Armageddon, no shalom, no shalom

    Then the Father hen will call his chickens home

    The wise men will bow down before the throne

    And at his feet they'll cast their golden crowns

    When the Man comes around

     

    Whoever is unjust, let him be unjust still

    Whoever is righteous, let him be righteous still

    Whoever is filthy, let him be filthy still

    Listen to the words long written down

    When the Man comes around

     

    Hear the trumpets, hear the pipers

    One hundred million Angels singing

    Multitudes are marching

    To the big kettle drum

    Voices calling, voices crying

    Some are born and some are dying

    It's Alpha and Omega's Kingdom Come

     

    And the whirlwind is in the thorntree

    The virgins are all trimming their wicks

    The whirlwind is in the thorntree

    It's hard for thee to kick against the pricks

     

    In measured hundred weight and penny pound

    When the Man comes around.

    Singing a song like that will drain your soul.

      There is no justification for more taxes....they haven't got it right in 40 years budgetwise so what would change with more taxes on anything?  ...Nothing

      Career politicians will have no jobs if we sto paying enough taxes. Don't you get it?

          Johnny Cash sang that song and he died old. He looked like a Man without a soul when he sang.Some music evoke evil spirits and demons to those who sing it and listen to it.

            No, Johnny crossed the river about 4 months after June and she was waitin' for him.

            He gave his last performance at The Carter Family Fold in Hiltons, VA., a place I've been many times and a place I would be more often if they served liquor.

            They carried him on and off stage in a chair.

            They were both right with God at the end.

            And that song is the farthest thing from evil you'll ever find, it's taken from Revelation, the last book in the Bible.

            There's power in that song.

              No wonder you are such a wiseguy Mr. Ridge Road runner. I have to say that I'm sorry for saying that about the song.

                  They say that Rick Rubin made Johnny Cash very relevant towards the end of his career by producing for Johnny. Google some pictures of Rick Rubin and you will see that the man look like something out of this magical world.

                        The devil works in mysterious ways Ridge. It looks like he got possessed by demons, evil spirits. Rick Rubin used to produce Hip Hop Albums, and he did not look like that.He has to be under some bad spirits possession.
