Then it occurred to me that this was April 15. Taxes were due. People were probably home frantically trying to get all their records together.
Or maybe they were out at the local bar. Maybe they were following the Biblical mandate.
(Proverbs 31:6-7 KJV) Give strong drink unto him that is ready to perish, and wine unto those that be of heavy hearts. Let him drink, and forget his poverty, and remember his misery no more.Just think of how much wiser the government is in using the money they took from you.
Be glad you don’t live in the People’s Republik of Kalifornia.
