Let me just insert this statistic:

New Hampshire has the lowest birth rate in the nation!

Sad, ain't it?

People are having too much fun in NH to have kids.  Keep in mind that people who make good money tend to have less kids and more fun than most people.  Welcome to NH.  Also, less kids keeps taxes down :)

What's up with Idaho?  Utard I understand but Idaho.  Oh, yeah there is nothing to do there but have sex for entertainment.

Without kids who is going to fight for freedom in the future?  Even your future, cause sooner or later you are going to be too old to put up much of a struggle.

One motivation I have to be a more activist libertarian is BECAUSE of my kids.  I want them to learn the difference between persuasion and coersion, force vs. volunteerism.

Speaking of libertarians and their children do any of you have children have any of those (few) libertarian oriented kids books? Are any of you concerned about socialist messages in childrens books?

I haven't noticed anything too objectionable in my daughter's books yet, but she's still pretty young - I'm sure it'll show up eventually.  I bought "Schoolhouse Rock" on DVD for her, though, and found that they've added a few cartoons to it since I was a kid.  I don't mind the grammar, math, or science cartoons, but there are a couple of new ones in the history/government/money category that are really statist.  There's one in particular that I will not let her watch - it's got a character named Max who sings about all the wonderful things the government does with tax revenue.  Ick.

I bought "Schoolhouse Rock" on DVD for her, though, and found that they've added a few cartoons to it since I was a kid.  There's one in particular that I will not let her watch - it's got a character named Max who sings about all the wonderful things the government does with tax revenue.  Ick.

Here are the lyrics.  They make me sad.

"Tax Man Max"

Welcome to the new variety, sit and relax.
I'm that song and dance phenomenon, Max
Let me sing for you, do my thing for you,
'Till they give me the axe.

Here's the song I'm doing, gonna fill in you all about tax.
Tax is that familiar melody, sinful and true.
Hum it if you've earned a dollar or two.
Bucks in billions for the government for whatever they do.
Anyone who earns a living gives more than a few.
So schools can be their best, so our roads will have no cracks;
Someone fix those train tracks!
I'm even callin' you Uncle and I'm payin' my tax.

Oh, these are my girls. Hello girls.
Hello max. Nice outfit.
There are many different ways we pay what we owe.
Lady's if you'll follow the lovely tableau.
Income, property, sales, utility. Candy bars in my show.
Licenses for dogs and cats, and that's not all you know.
Out of every dollar a person can make,
City, State and Federal governments take...
Take what?
What they think is fair you givin' your share;
Now and then there's a break.

Max is talking taxes,
Hey, I kept you awake! For the things your town may need,
For the things a country lacks,
All good things take green backs.
We hear you callin' Uncle and we're paying our tax.
People do complain,
Say their taxes are high;
What am I to get in return?

Look around you friend,Max is showin' you why,
With your taxes you support
How we live and how we learn
Now here's the good news,
Many things are tax deductible.

Which means their cost can be subtracted from the amount of income you'll be taxed on. Things like medicine, doctor bills, and supplies for your work.

So keep those receipts.
Be kind to your parents at tax time.
And remember April 15th. April 15th.

What a showman you are Max.
Entertaining us with tax,
In those snazzy plaid slacks.
These slacks are for my business.
I tell you how to fit them.
I hear you callin' Uncle, and I'm paying my tax.
His tax are max.

And I'm deducting my sax.

Damn, that is so awful I can't even describe how I feel, how awful that is. Talk about brainwashing, socialist,garbage.
