The Relative Comment

soothing waves of relativity

Happy Fourth of July-

leave a comment »

As my state government has now entered a shutdown over how to pay for the operating of the state government (Taxes! No, Cuts!, No Taxes!), I remain proud of my state, it’s government, and our country and its national government. Even when it gets ugly, and people are fighting over taxes. It always gets ugly over taxes.

Because taxes are hard. Washington may have been right when he said that there are no taxes that are not inconvenient and unpleasant, but Roosevelt was also right when he said that taxes pay our membership dues to an organized society.

So on that contradiction (which is no contradiction at all), and in the face of Minnesota’s total governmental failure, I say, happy fourth of July.
