Funny story written by Mr Luigi

Tuesday, 9 March 2004


The people on the Forbes list of billionaires do not have to pay any taxes any longer - sales tax included. Now please don´t think that this is unfair or an unjust republican law for the most wealthy. Give me a chance to explain. Billionaires have achieved so much for our country in terms of the creation of jobs, cultural and material wealth that they should be exempted from the mundane duty of just paying taxes. To a large extend it is them that provide for genuine software on all kinds of computing devices, that generously allow discounts on dairy products in grocery stores, that make sure we even get a third forth and fifth rerun of General Hospital on cable TV, that give Bush money so he can get reelected and then do what is best for us, that ... . The list of such outstandingly good and thoughtful things billionaires do for us is endless. If I would have more room I would finish the list to give them the praise and honor that they most truly deserve.

So far so good you might say - but where do I blend in? That´s easy, duh! If billionaires don´t have to pay taxes they will have even more money which they will then solely spend on new jobs and our economy. So everyone will benefit. Just in case you still feel treated unfairly Bush has a little goodie for you that should help you become a billionaire yourself in the near future. For every hour that you work you will get a tax refund of one cent. This doesn´t sound much. But think about it: Working 12 hours a day, 6 days a week 51 weeks a year will add up to a total of 3672 cents. So you can either support the economy by going to Burger King or you can start saving up! By the time our kids are old enough to know what the word deficit means they will all have parents with plenty of Cheese Burgers or a billion dollars.

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