Tax, tax, tax, tax …

Let’s just say I work hard and plan for my future. (Yes, there are still some folk around naive enough to think like that.)

I go to work. I get paid … and I pay tax on every dollar I earn at the current rate of Envy Tax Income Tax.

I’ve got a few dollars left after the grey ones have finished goosing my pockets.  So I save some and I spend some.

And I pay tax on every dollar I spend, at the current rate of Grab, Snatch and Take. And I pay tax on every dollar of interest I earn on the savings which have taken me so long to build up.

So far, so unfair.

Now let’s just say I’ve got a few dollars of capital left after the grey ones have taken their income tax, their GST , their withholding tax and whatever else those gorgeous bastards dream up. So let’s just say I keep building up that capital with my savings (which takes more time than it would if I didn’t have the grey ones in my pocket) and I eventually have enough capital to put towards starting a new business.

Naturally, the grey ones want a cut of every dollar of profit I make. And they put their hand in my till for ACC levies and for the PAYE on every dollar I pay my employees. So with the capital built up over many year, and the earnings I’ve got left after the grey ones have taken what they call their “fair share,” I navigate my way for many years through the govt’s rules, regulations and “guidelines”—and I do this for so many years I lose count, until eventually I decide to sell the business.

And then the Labour Fucking Party want to put their hand in my pocket again because, they say, I haven’t been taxed enough.

Well, phuck you again, Phil. Fuck you David.

You pair of thieving rat-faced bastards.

You are so bad, you make Smile and Wave & Sir Double Dipton electable.

And if any of you think the the answer to fixing New Zealand is more frigging taxes, then you sure as hell don’t even know the right questions to ask.

You forgot to mention that after double, triple dipping, and stealing 5% of your wealth through inflation, they still can't make ends met by $300M/week.

Great! So the money you save in tax goes into paying accountants and lawyers to help you avoid paying tax.

Marvelous solution wot!

Another smarmy concrete-bound jackass who can't see the wood for the trees. Riddle me this Mr Anon. Why should we even need to bother to avoid paying tax?

of course we shouldn't.

but if we don't we're supporting Labour's communist regime.

David Farrar has said he would support establishing a CGT for the purpose of lowering income taxes, on the basis that taxation ought to be "broad-based and low rate". What do you think of that?

Communism. Not even "by stealth"

Open communism.

50 years ago the CIA wouldn't have permitted the Clark government and certainly wouldn't permit the Greens. Hell they woudn't permit let Smile'n'Wave's
policies!

It's called Freedom.

NZ should try it sometime.

It is an interesting prospect: Applying McCarthyist standards to present day politicians.
Who are the alleged/blatant commies of today? I suggest there'd be few MPs left in NZ's House of Representatives. I doubt whether Mr Obama would withstand scrutiny.
