Inflation is on the rise and government spending is through the roof so, of course, the government needs to increase taxes to cover at least some of the shortfall.
To that end, they are increasing the tax on stupid:
On Monday, a new drawing will join the weekly lineup of Powerball drawings, which are currently held on Wednesday and Saturday, giving players another opportunity to win.
Translation: The government operated numbers racket is increasing the opportunities for stupid people to pay their voluntary tax.
Don’t get me wrong…I’m not complaining. The more money they can convince stupid people to give them voluntarily, the lower my mandatory tax bill will be (theoretically at least, anyway).
