Every Day is Tax Day

Pissed off about your taxes?

This will piss you off even more once you put your taxes owed versus hours worked into perspective.

Go visit the Tax Day Clock and adjust the settings (using the < or the > keys) to reflect your income. Then adjust the slider to the year 2011. Click on those colored sections for the different government departments you paid out with your hard work.

For example, someone making $50K in 2011 worked only 5 hours and 26 minutes for themselves each 8 hour work day. The rest of those 2 hours and 34 minutes per day was spent as an indentured servant to the all mighty federal government.

Didn't know you were a government employee, did you?

Keep working! Those 'entitlement' folks are counting on you!
