Tax Debate: Two alternate faery tales

 

The Happy Kingdom of US

Once upon a time there was lovely little kingdom upon a tiny far-away island. One day a giant washed ashore. The giant was good and saw that he could carry more water than almost all of the other little islanders together. The giant was welcomed and rewarded beyond all measure. No one hated the other for their size. Each had their place and duties and families to look after. The giant carried his own load, which was much more than the others, but he reaped the rewards of the roads the others built, the delicious meals they created and the sense that he belonged to something much bigger than even himself, something he could not find quite the same on any other island. And so all on the island shared work and wealth and lived happily ever after.

Trouble in the Kingdom of ME.

Once upon a time, the giant drank all the water, and when the city caught fire he pissed on the little people and went to another island and acted like a dick there too.
