    some good news in cheap dollar

    ......"I am finding out that thousands of "poor"
    people in South Carolina don't even file tax returns to
    collect their earnedincome credits."........don't you
    think that a lot of this is due to the fact that people
    are intimidated by the bewildering complexity of the
    Tax Code?.......every so often the "flat tax"
    proposal resonates politically; but nothing ever seems to
    come of it.......Americans seem defeated and resigned
    to the inevitability of taxes.........it wasn't
    always this way .......as you know, in 1776 people went
    to loading guns when they got fed up with their
    taxes........aahh; those were the days!.........citizens understood
    the meaning of the words "tax reform" back
    then.......the beat goes on.......

    • ........as you recall one of Alexander Hamilton's
      first moves as Secty. of the Treasury was to slap a tax
      on whiskey...........a move so unpopular that tax
      collectors were beaten. stoned, tarred and had their houses
      burned down!.......now that's what I call "affirmative
      action" :-).........the beat goes on......
