Ah but you'll rest soundly at night knowing that 26% of your earnings will be going to a government that will only waste about a quarter of it, mis-spend perhaps another 25% and give the rest of it to strangers. Feel better?

The Russians, French, few Asian coutries and our Latin American friends all appreciate how hard you have been working recently. It makes our loans to them SO much larger...

Wait till you get older. After Federal, State, Local, Medicare, Sales, Excise, and other misc stuff I pay out over 50%. WTH is up with that. My last bonus check lost half it's weight even before I deposited it into my savings account.
