What Bugs Me

Here's the kind of thing which irritates be beyond all holy recognition. Philadelphia wants to charge a "business tax" of $300 to bloggers.
Up next: squirrel tax
This is the typical kind of idiotic anti-small-business thinking which goes on everywhere. Note that whether you're a multi-million-dollar company or some poor shlub with a blog about flowers, you get taxed exactly the same amount.
The same is true of virtually all business "licenses". It's just the most regressive kind of taxation imaginable. Personally I think that any business with less than $100K in revenue should simply pay no tax -- not even payroll tax. Make the freakin' State pick it up from big companies that can afford it. So there. Pththth.
