Posted on 10/29/2010 10:30:03 AM PDT by pansgold
This Halloween when each kid comes home with a sack full of candy, set them down and tell them its time to pay their taxes.
Grab as much of their candy as you want and tell them its a graduated tax and is proportionate to the amount they have.
Tell them that you will be giving it to the kids that were too lazy to beat the streets for themselves and they stayed home and sat on their asses.
Nothing like hitting the kidos in the sweet-tooth to explain taxes.
Didn’t take me long to figure out that the person who stayed home and handed out the candy a) didn’t get as cold and b) had access to more candy! Guess it’s no wonder I’m larger than is healthy! :-(
Render unto Daddy what is Daddy’s.
I get all the tiny 3Musketeers and Mars bars. The rest is junk anyway.
A republican kid will “donate” the chocolate pieces to tax free deduction known as mom and bank the deduction for when he/she needs a vote to go to the amusement park, etc.
“tax evasion”? You’re lucky they didn’t pass a law mandating tou turn all canday over to the state (parents) by outlawing candy posession, like gold, and private property.
We are heading there.
very wise... saving for a rainy day.
I do that exact same thing with my kids - ice cream, candy, cookies. Gotta pay a tax to Dad. I usually don’t take it, but then I tell them - remember, here in NY State, they could take HALF.
Their reply: REALLY???! No way!
This is a classic thread!!! I love Free Republic!!
We’ve been doing that for years. This one isn’t very popular at all. The Patty Murray sucker tax. 99% of all suckers collected on Halloween go to Patty Murray’s office, the trash can.
Now that you’re in GA, if you like GOLD try the “LOUD MINE” near Cleveland, GA also nead Dahlonega, GA.
