I spent four hours on tax day carrying a sign that said “High taxes are bad for Business” — a non-controversial slogan it seems to me. It informs one to watch the reaction of the public, as a fond people watcher and student of human nature I took note of those reactions. Cowboys, to no one’s surprise, are enthusiastic for liberty, prosperity and progress, ditto long-haul truckers with their deep voiced horns. Workmen with pickup trucks cluttered with tools are for rational tax levels. Pretty girls seem to be overwhelmingly in favor of tax rationality. Grandparents with their decades of life lessons know that my sign speaks the truth.
But not everyone agreed with my sign. I have a safety hint to those fellow citizens on the other side of the argument. When you drive down the Beeline in your Escalade talking on your smartphone, do not use your free hand to give the fickle finger, it isn’t safe. Keep your hands on the wheel.
Oddly — or not — the progressive left staged a parade the day before to bring attention to global warming. No granddads awarded them the fickle finger. Kind of makes you wonder.
