More Laws Yep that’s it that’s what we need

For as long as they’ve been banded about, 3D printers were regarded as the path to a new economy, a method of distributed manufacturing, and a revolution for the current consumer culture. With every revolution, a few people need to get angry and the guys at Defense Distributed are doing their part to make that happen. They’re designing a handgun able to be printed on a hobbyist-level 3D printer

AT&T: Net rules must allow ‘paid prioritization’ | Politics and Law – CNET News: “

August 31, 2010 2:17 PM PDT AT&T: Net rules must allow ‘paid prioritization’ by Declan McCullagh Font size Print E-mail Share 69 comments Share   65 1 AT&T said Tuesday that any Net neutrality plan restricting its ability to engage in ‘paid prioritization’ of network traffic would be harmful and contrary to the fundamental principles of the Internet. Telecommunications providers need the ability to set different prices for different forms of Internet service, AT&T said, adding that it already has ‘hundreds’ of customers who have paid extra for higher-priority services. ‘Our view is that if the Federal Communications Commission is going to be making policy decisions on this front, it should base them on the facts, as opposed to dogma,’ an AT&T rep”

What Happened?
At first I thought this was funny…then I realized the awful truth of it.
Be sure to read all the way to the end!
Tax his land,
Tax his bed,
Tax the table
At which he’s fed.

Tax his tractor,
Tax his mule,
Teach him taxes
Are the rule.

Tax his cow,
Tax his goat,
Tax his pants,
Tax his coat.

Tax his ties,
Tax his shirt,
Tax his work,
Tax his dirt.

Tax his tobacco,
Tax his drink,
Tax him if he
Tries to think.

Tax his cigars,
Tax his beers,
If he cries, then
Tax his tears.

Tax his car,
Tax his gas,
Find other ways
To tax his ass

Tax all he has
Then let him know
That you won’t be done
Till he has no dough.

When he screams and hollers,
Then tax him some more,
Tax him till
He’s good and sore.

Then tax his coffin,
Tax his grave,
Tax the sod in
Which he’s laid.

Put these words
upon his tomb,
“Taxes drove me
to my doom…”

When he’s gone,
Do not relax,
Its time to apply
The inheritance tax.

COMMENTS: Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago,
and our nation was the most prosperous in the world.
We had absolutely no national debt, had the largest middle class

in the world, and Mom stayed home to raise the kids.
What happened?

And I still have to “press 1” for English
I hope this goes around world 10 times
