OH, WHAT ACHIEVEMENTS ARE BEYOND THE POWER OF THE TAX LAW?

December 14, 2005

In ancient times people would try to solve their problems by appeasing a batch of fickle gods. Drought would be solved by sacrificing a goat to the rain god, or stress by sacrificing an in-law to the serenity god (that actually works).

In our modern times we have abandoned these superstitious rituals. Who needs the spirits? We have the tax law.

Hurricane Damage? Pass tax incentives.
College is expensive? Pass a tax credit.
Cold? Pass energy tax incentives.
Can't get business to move to Iowa? Pass corporate welfare tax incentives.

Fat Kids?

The government should consider the use of awards and tax incentives that encourage companies to develop and promote healthier products for young people.

No job too tough, no chore too rough! The tax law does it all!
