You just can't make this stuff up. Why, if revenues don't increase then governments may have to raise taxes on some to pay the exorbitant salaries and pensions of others. This would be a catastrophe for those of us who are already drowning in tax burden. It is like a giant mountain of water that is threatening to bring monsoons followed by the biggest tsunami ever.

I do not appreciate someone using my name, though I agree with some of what he is saying. I think these sites should all be flagged until the real Arnold, me, is revealed as the true Arnold. Until then, get your life rafts out, because this is going to be Big.
