Happy Tax Freedom Day!

Today is Tennessee's Tax Freedom Day ... the date each year on which the average Tennessean has worked enough to pay his or her combined federal, state and local taxes. (Nationally, Tax Freedom Day is "celebrated" on April 23.)

According to the Tax Foundation, Americans will work longer this year to pay for government (113 days) than they will for food, clothing and housing combined (108 days).

Indeed, Americans, as a whole, will work longer to afford federal taxes than they will to afford housing; and as a group, they will work longer to pay state and local taxes than they will to pay for food.

B. Hussein Obama and Hillary Rodham (Clinton) have both promised, if elected president, to raise any and all taxes.

Good God ... ain't we taxed enough?! Any Tennessean who says "no" has no business voting; and if they do vote, they are surely lacking in brain cells if'n they vote for B. Hussein or Hillary, indeed.
