This perceptive piece of writing is from the father of Jamese, a generally left-of-center blogger from Canada. Although it is intended to describe the Canadian tax system, it is a good representation of what we currently have here in the US. It makes a tremendous amount of sense.
While I am not a fan of Jamese's professed political beliefs, I do like her blog. It will probably show up on my links list eventually, although I am a bit afraid that she'll come over and beat the crap out of me for linking to her site, because she finds my views odious. (I understand that the doctors were able to straighten out VodkaPundit's nose, and you won't even be able to tell it was broken.)
