IRS Secret Agent

Quote of the Week:

"Friends and neighbors complain that taxes are indeed very heavy, and if those laid on by the government were the only ones we had to pay we might the more easily discharge them; but we have many others, and much more grievous to some of us. We are taxed twice as much by our idleness, three times as much by our pride, and four times as much by our folly."

-Benjamin Franklin

You got pride in there twice it should read "...and four times as much by our folly."
