it originated from
"the tax man"
after all he is the biggest thief of them all
The word came about because the goverment make most of the population live in poverty and take all there money leaving most people barely enough to survive on,
some decide to become criminals rather than live in poverty because they cant afford things due to tax causing high prices. All the goverment do for us is think of new taxes to bum from the people as a result people hate the goverment and taxes because they have to live in poverty and the goverment is seen as a thief so the word tax mostly replaced the words steal, nick, rob, thive, because everyone knows the tax man is a robbing bastid who only thinks of his own kind and what the fat cats can get, to them we are nothing more than worker ants
where'd you get that from
"oh i just taxed it from some old lady"
"A nation trying to tax itself into prosperity is like a man trying to lift himself out of a bucket by it's handle."
Therein lies the explanation why pollutocrats like John Kerry, Al Gore, Hillary Clinton, and Ted Kennedy, who have millions of dollars, want to raise taxes. They have great wealth but not-so-great incomes, so they pay very low taxes. It's YOUR ass they want to tax.
This also explains why higher taxes are the liberal's favorite solution to every problem. Higher taxes cost him nothing, but the entitlements they pay for buy votes from members of the entitled groups. This explains why black folks like to vote for John Kerry. You didn't think they like his face, did you?
Note a fundamental truth of the universe: Corporations do NOT pay taxes. Never have. Never will. They merely collect taxes and pass them on to the government. If the government slaps a high tax on corporations, the corporations merely raise the prices of the goods they sell, and pass the cost along to the consumer.
The general reaction to taxes is high, usually because people are very attached to the small green slips of paper they call 'money.'
