What Taxes?

by JLR


All the warnings began months before January 1, 2000. From deep in the halls of congress, everyone was secreting the news of the new "Utopia" that was simply going to transform the American landscape, from every domicile, state by state.

The telltale, all-encompassing word, was transformation.

It began with those with the least of material possessions and ended with the news trending one-percenters. Everyone provided a specific date to come into the transformation office...to be reassigned.

At the stroke of 1 PM on June 1, 2000, the process of transferring
all material possessions took place. The transfer was complete before the day was out.

Slowly, household by household, those with the least moved lock, stock, and barrel into the utopia of those who had "it all."

They traded economic places.

With wealth now transformed, however, the outcry was deafening from those who had gotten new material possessions.

"What taxes?"
