The Price We Pay

 

“Taxes are what we pay for civilization.”

This old saying requires a major addition.

The higher taxes are

It extends by far

The reach of governmental corruption.

 

 

 

A Motiveless Mass Murderer?

 

Most of us strive mightily to stay alive,

And when we die, we want our name to survive.

So I have a question

For you men and women:

Does a mass murderer achieve a second life?

 

 

 

Stiffing The Working Stiff

 

The Dems have made a major policy shift.

They’re now into identity politics.

What has come to pass,

Alack and alas,

Is they couldn’t care less about the working stiff.
