Best Article on Taxes, the Deficit, and Spending

This is one of the best rants on government spending, withholding, taxes, spending, and related issues that I've read in a long time. Fantastic. It's long, but well worth the read.

One of many hilarious (and sad) paragraphs:
The government almost shut down last week over cutting 38 billion dollars… That may sound like a lot, but comparatively speaking, that’s like a 600 pound man who’s heart is about to explode congratulating himself that he got a hamburger instead of a cheeseburger… for his fifty-seventh meal of the day. Republicans backed off because they didn’t think they could win the PR battle. Let’s see… the Democrats were willing to not pay soldiers, currently fighting three wars, in order to ensure funding for abortion clinics… And you didn’t think you could win that PR fight? Seriously? Have you ever thought about maybe hiring a marketing major? I know a guy….
