Caesar and Uncle Sam


Death and Taxes are inevitable in this life.. and so let me share a few
toons that smirk at our contributions to Uncle Sam for those of us in
America, AND I am sure no matter what country you live in.. they want their
share too. Here in America every April 15th is tax day, while death only
comes once.. (pause) unless you are a cat. 

In preparing your taxes it is important to claim your dependents, and all
other deductions you can dream up...then

off to the post office we head like lemmings heading over the postal cliff
as we mail our returns in hopes of a refund. 

In the end Uncle Sam will get his no matter if you have to look through the
cushions in your couch or GO FISHING.. Sam will get what is coming to him
and in my opinion maybe a little bit more.

If you are lucky... he will leave you a little all while making sure you

The important perspective regarding taxescan be found in the Gospels where
Jesus teaches us unflinchingly.. give to Caesar (in ourcase Uncle Sam) what
is Caesar's, and more importantly give to our God what is due to Him.

Simply put, Uncle Sam represents this significant piece in our lives of
government (for good or bad ) providing us with structure and order for our
American society..

BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY our God is the source of true life and He provides us
with His word (our Bible's) for guidance, and Jesus Christ as our savior.
Our God is not an indifferent deity, but rather our loving Heavenly

So while I thank God (sometimes thru clenched teeth) for this great country
of opportunities I live in, I love my God for the bigger picture of family,
friends, and faith that make life good.

even when I pay taxes.
