image for IRS Refunds War Tax Retroactive to the Spanish-American War!
Bush calls to check on his war tax rebate

A little advertised yet valuable tax rebate has become available in this tax year only! The US instituted a war tax on telephone bills to finance the 1898 Spanish-American War (when the US had 17 phones). Today that tax has collected billions of dollars and the irs who apparently is as fed-up with Bush's folly as any of us is willing to return every penny your ancestors and you have ever paid.

IRS Director P. Z. Ahorra explained: "Let's be straight, every American war has had some phoney catalyst."

The IRS has shown that: the revolution was a tax uprising that had more to do with tea-sipping than liberty; 1812 was a land grab for canada; the Mexican war was plain and simple vicious imperialismo and; 1898 faked a boiler rupture on the uss Havana to steal more Catholic Spanish land for Protestant America!

They also suggest the first Great war was a last minute "oil grab bag" and if the treaty of Versaille had not put Germany under such strains, the German public would have never "listened to a madman". Korea was MacArthur's China invasion gone wrong and VietNam was about spheres of influence just like every post WWII misadventure.

Ahorra insists: "Get great-grandpa and ma's money along with your abuelitos y sus padres and your own tax rip-off and drain Baby Bush's War chest!"

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
