I have come across the most rediculous things taxed.My husband said,all I have to do is be born,pay taxes and die.They will get you coming and going.When he died I went to the funeral home and they gave me the total for the funeral and was explaining what each amount was and when he got to the part where he said and the taxes are I cracked up laughing.Then I said,"Your kidding right?" And he said no that they have to tax funerals.I was shocked.I never had to plan a funeral before.I was totally surprised.Have you ever come across thing's taxed that you feel are dumb?

It is to the point that they tax everything. Pretty soon they will tax us for leaving our homes. It is crazy. Anything to get their hands on more money.

We are taxed so much and then they get so much money for everything.A friend of mine worked for the government and once a year they would have a decorater come in and re-do everything,including getting new computers.And the employees were not allowed to take anything home.It really made him mad.Here he and a few other's were doing most of the work for his divsion and their bosses would take the credit and have a larger pay check.
