Taxpayers Should Unionize!

We could strike when government over-reaches. If the IRS came after us, an arbitrator would decide. Solidarity!

HA HA!!

Well, I can certainly appreciate the spirit in which you thought this up. Taxpayers no longer have representation, do we? It just might come to that, after all.

Going Galt works too.

Extra special agents with extra special shotguns. Coming to take bambi’s bribe for being able to breathe(aka forced healthcare) should not have to deal with you peasants.

That is brillant!

But, have we been pushed far enough, yet?

I don't currently have a job. I am not excited about looking for one, even though I know I need one. I am sick of the federal Imperial Government.

Gone Galt.

Buy used stuff whenever possible. Trade for things. Help your friends out. They someday can help you out. Friends need something? Give it to them. Down the road they might have something you need they don’t anymore.

Good advice.

Hubby just recently drove out his dad’s car after his dad had passed away. He was the only one in the family that needed it. We have a teen aged daughter who just got her drivers license. 2005 year old car with only 8K miles on it. What a deal! And no new car costs, even better.

Well, there is the National Taxpayer’s Union...

http://www.ntu.org/

But I like the idea of a strike. I’m not sure that I’m in a good position to do so, however.

Darn, I thought I had an idea there. It turns out that someone just turned on a light.

Eliminate the automatic with-holding requirement.

Let everyone cut a check to the IRS/ States, like I do for my property taxes.

Since the Wisconsin Dem State Senators held a job action had a strike, does this mean they are unionized? I think the governor should hire in scab (Republican) workers to break the strike and force the vote. Which union did they join? Fraternal Brotherhood of Politically Tone-Deaf Legislators? Talk about living in denial.

Taxpayers are already Unionized.. they have three Unions..
The Unions are called Federal, State and Local governments..
America has three governments.. NOT ONE..

When someone uses the word government the next response should be WHICH government?...
But thats almost Never asked.. to confuse the rubes..

Question: Are YOU a rube?.. Rubes lose track of what government IS...

LOL,

A taxpayer strike would be a stoppage in paying the taxes.

Love it! I’ve been saying that the American tax payers should go on a ‘tax strike’ for years now.

Just don’t ask me for any union dues, and we’ll be fine.

Something like this is exactly what it is going to take to get this corrupt ever expanding government back in line...

Government at all levels need to be reminded who the hell they work for...

Two day mass work strikes following government holidays, no purchase days etc, etc...
