I trust government to tax fairly like I trust any other monopoly’s prices to be fair
A newly married couple goes to the county fair and the husbands sees helicopter rides that showcase the beauty of the surrounding area. He really wants to go, but his wife looks at him and says, “it’s too expensive. 50 bucks is 50 bucks.”
They go every year to the fair and every year the husband wants to take a helicopter ride, but his wife continually says, “50 bucks is 50 bucks.”
After 20 years of going he says that he really wants to go and she again tells him it is too expensive. “50 bucks is 50 bucks.”
The pilot overhears the couple’s conversation, and offers to give them a ride for free, but with one condition. The husband can’t make a sound during the ride.
During the ride the pilot really showcases his skills by performing daring maneuvers that make the stomach turn.
After the ride is over he tells the man about his surprise that he didn’t make a sound during the flight. He has other riders who can’t stop screaming during the ride without the daring stunts.
The husband tells him he almost made a sound when his wife fell out but, “50 bucks is 50 bucks.”
