Taxes Buy Civilization

Read Thomas L. Friedman’s NYT Op-Ed.

Sarah Palin’s claim that it is UNPATRIOTIC to pay taxes will find cold comfort among the people who…

…have children fighting in Iraq without adequate equipment.

…have lost loved ones in bridge collapses around the country.

…have schools with crumbling walls and no toilet tissue.

…have jobs inspecting port containers.

…give food to shut-ins.

…are desperate to get their children healthcare.

…are disgusted by hate-mongering in public discourse.

…take heart in the better impulses of you and me.
