Tax Freedom Day: Huzzah!

Today is Pennsylvania Primary Day.
Paxutauny Phil voted early this morning, saw his shadow outside the voting booth, and predicted six more weeks of intense campaigning.

Today is Tax Freedom Day.
It’s also Earth Day.
Somewhere, someplace, there is something perversely poetic in that crossing of the stars.
I’m sure some candlestick chart reader will be able to come up with an appropriate pattern, the double planet cross, or something like that.
It's not easy being green.

Tax Freedom day means, basically, from today onward, you’re working for you. The wages you earn will actually accrue to your benefit, as opposed to the earnings you’ve amassed over the past 112 days of 2008, which are equal to your Federal tax bill for the year.
