A more in-depth analysis of populist concerns over taxation and government is warranted here, as well as an exploration in the far right’s co-option of such issues.  Since I’m full-on out of time for much writing, that’ll have to wait.  In the meantime though, mixed in with all the hilarious puns and double entendres are some important little factoids to get you thinking (like the fact that most of these ‘protesters’ will receive a tax break from the policy’s they’re protesting, or that the increased taxes on the rich that they’re somehow against are 10% lower than what was in place under Reagan).  Hat tip to Caoimhin Laochdha over at GMD for the vid.
