Welp, I filed as an official business so now I've got to pay a federal income tax on my art. My art is now funding war and a corrupt and destructive banking model. Joy.

For non USA peoples. We have three major taxes from the Federal Gov. Social Security*- which pays for the elderly and I'm fine with that. Medicare- which pays for poor people and I'm fine with that, and Income, which was suppossed to pay for other gov. programs but now just pays for the interest we owe the Fed and our wars, and they still claim it pays for other things but it seriously does not (we borrow money for those other things. So yeah not happy on that one).

*Technically Social Security pays for wars too as the reason it's bankrupt is the military used the "untouchable" money meant to help aging American for wars, and now there is no money and fuck them. But in theory it's for the elderly so I'd rather not protest that tax and instead pass a law that makes even writing legislation to divert SS funds for any other purpose punishable by death. Or something equally drastic.

And yes right, SS and medicare are not really taxes, but that's semantics. They are you just can't legally call them that.

Anyway so it just annoys me that I'm going to loose about 300 out of every 1000 and see no practical benefit AT ALL!! This isn't oh pay taxes and get a good police force (becasue they aren't paid for at a fed. level) or good Firefighters, or roads, or ANYTHING ELSE. Not even good health care! It's oh pay taxes and watch it go into a giant money hole so we can kill people with even greater weapons. *sigh*


. . . .

I also have to pay state sales tax but as that actually helps things in my area I'm not as fussed over that. It's all the things and pays for all the thigns the Fed taxes don't. It's just annoying in that I either pay a lump sum at the end or my prices go from nice neat $1.00, $5.00, $15.00 etc to $1.08, $5.40, 16.02
etc.

And as I'm not doing change, I'll be doing the lump sum of annoyances each quarter.


And if you read all that, wow.
Have a picture of Cecil to lighten the mood again!
