My 24¢ Raise

Posted on Mon, Apr 4, 2011 at 12:53 PM

YOU SUCK! I can't believe 24 cents will put me in a higher tax bracket! I don't even care that I can "claim most of it back next year". That's NEXT YEAR! I need the money now! You get a raise and somehow end up getting paid $30 less on every paycheque? Someone please explain this to me! I should at least be allowed to choose where my tax dollars go. (P.S. Why is the government giving a $32,000 tax break on a fucking YACHT? Aren't people who own a yacht rich enough? Jesus Christ). Don't get me wrong people! I understand that taxes are "necessary" but why should I have to work my ass off and lose half the money I make? Something too shady for me to grasp my hand around. And that GST cheque every few months just doesn't cut it! Fuck our government, fuck our government & FUCK my 24 cent raise! —When Do I Get My Tax Break?
