What Happened?

Two first time visitors today. Gaylen had to work and Bro Turner was supplying for Victory Baptist Church in Chehalis. I taught Sunday School, led the singing, and did all the preaching and praying today. My morning sermon outline on "The Faith and Costiliness" is on the front page of the TLBC website. click here


Tax his land,Tax his bed,Tax the tableAt which he's fed.
Tax his tractor,Tax his mule,Teach him taxesAre 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 heTries to think.
Tax his cigars,Tax his beers,If he cries, thenTax his tears.
Tax all he hasThen let him knowThat you won't be doneTill he has no dough.
When he screams and hollers, Rich or poor ,Tax him till He's got no more.
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..."
And 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 NOW I have to "press 1" for English?
