    We're told, constantly, that when the obscenely wealthy are asked to pay a few dollars more, that is somehow an unfair distribution, because the oh-so-clever rich have earned their money.  

    But the powers that be have no qualms about demanding more taxes from the rest of us, because, apparently, we didn't earn the pittance we're paid for putting up with the idiotic bosses whose callous tactics caused us to have physical and/or mental breakdowns and inconvenient hardships.  Our wages were given to us out of the largesse of the ruling class, and we should be grateful for the generosity.  

    Too, we should expect to pay a "privilege tax" because we're ever-so-honored to be allowed to live within spitting distance of the ones who like to spit on us, who, of course, built every damn inch of road and such, one piece of gravel or one rivet at a time, because they're oh so dedicated to helping us while asking nothing in return.
