"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."
Dr. Adrian Rogers 1931-2005

We finally had an accountant

come out to the farm and help with our 2016 taxes. 
He was very professional.
 
As time went by though, and he tried to understand some
of the paperwork,

he lost it!

Then he thought perhaps if he looked at the paperwork
from another angle. 

Nope, that didn't work...
Then he threw out his abacus and began using the tried and true
method of counting numbers on his fingers.
 
Once again he lost it and
threw up his hands with a big giggle and said,
I am not an accountant and taxes, what are they*?

That's the cutest little accountant I've seen. I'll bet he works for hugs and a few cookies thrown in.
