Life,Taxes, and Friends - Page 2
Case in point, On Wednesday one of my clients called and asked if I could get two 15 year old music samplers to work together via midi at 9:00pm in the evening. First of all how many people that get up at 5:00am feel like working that late? Reluctantly, I acquiesced to his request even though I really didn’t want to. 9:00pm arrived and the client and a box full of gear winds up in my dining room, it took a whole five minutes to pinpoint the problem as a communication issue. After a simplified explanation I proceeded to the “fix” and was stopped abruptly by the client “You can’t modify the offending piece of equipment, I never have to do that”. Standing there stunned I told him his trip here and my time are in vain if I can’t proceed. That was that, instead of fixing the problem the client then wanted me to show him how I do the same work without all of the extraneous gear. Two hours of show and tell go by and I tell the client it’s time to quit and here’s the bill. “A bill”, the client seemed genuinely surprised, I’ll pay you when you come over next week and do more work, after all we're friends and I came over to visit! How many clients do you have that bring work over at 9:00 at night in the guise of friendship? The upside of the incident is I won’t have to pay any taxes on zero income!
The moral of this story is the taxation of 98% of Americans is unjust, the poor pay taxes to support the very poor, millionaires pay nothing and everybody is out for what they can get no matter who it hurts. As your sitting in line at the post office today take a moment to mourn the idea of America and equality, it has run its course and freedom now costs more than we can afford.
