Grover Norquist Will Take Candy From Little Girls to Teach About Taxes

You're never too young to learn about taxes, I suppose. And if your dad is Americans for Tax Reform President Grover Norquist, you can bet dad is going to be taking his 25% from your Halloween candy just to help you learn:

 


Curious if dear old dad will explain deductions and use of questionable but legal tricks to manipulate loopholes in the tax code?

Since a good chunk of our own income taxes go to service debt, will Grover be sending his credit card company an envelope full of fun size Snickers bars? I mean dude, if you're going to do this, you have to go all the way with it. Otherwise you're just taking candy from little girls.

Then again, what better lesson for the joys of taxation that face them in their working years. Get used to it, girls, it only gets worse as you get older and by that point, you don't even get free candy from strangers one day a year.
