Houston Nutt Never Raised My Taxes
Houston Nutt is no longer the head football coach at the University of Arkansas. Many were overjoyed at the news. Others, like me and presumably Nutt himself, were simply relieved. Now it is time for reflections.
On further reflection, Houston Nutt never raised my taxes. I did not have to roll my lazy carcass out of bed early even one day in order to earn wages that I would later be required to pay to the government on account of him. He never invaded my privacy, reduced my freedom, or trampled on our constitutional liberties. Yet many full grown adults were very upset with him. I have not noticed these same people taking equal umbrage at those who do raise our taxes, and grow government until it consumes both our earnings and our liberties.
Houston Nutt is a man who coaches a game played with a ball. That's it. Am I living in a repeat of the last days of Rome? In those times, the crowds were kept amused with bread and circuses while the integrity of their rulers and institutions crumbled around them.
Pay attention to the important stuff. Time is short.
