USA Today newspaper had a "snapshot" cartoon drawing on the front page of yesterday's edition (Wednesday, November 9). It was entitled Tow lengthy codes and it compared the number of pages in the KJV Holy Bible (1472 pages) and the U.S. tax code (20,000 pages). The tax code is incomprehensible. It is corrupt and the product of special interests and unprincipled politicians who have figured out ways to steal from the U.S. Treasury for their own personal benefits at the expense of ordinary people. The Wall Street Journal newspaper in an article entitled Taxing Words on November 1 noted that the entire code runs to 9,000,000 words: The nine-million-word figure is arrived at by combining Title 26 with all the regulations that have been written to implement the law. The regulations are estimated to run to nearly six million words, giving us the oft-quoted nine million total. Last year, the White House noted conservatively that the tax code ran to "over one million words." Mr. Walker arrives at a figure of approximately 1.3 million words if one excludes "all the auxiliary and supplementary material (lists of amendments, cross-references, transitional rules, etc.)," which is close to the White House figure. http://online.wsj.com/article/SB113081240558284920.html?mod=opinion&ojcontent=otep It amazes me that the Triune God of the Universe needs only 1,472 pages for a comprehensive manual for every person but Uncle Sam needs 20,000 pages in order to impose an unfair tax code.
