How will you celebrate this anniversary?

On this date, 95 years ago, U.S. Secretary of State Philander Knox proclaimed that the 16th Amendment had been adopted by the requisite number of states and was now part and parcel of the U.S. Constitution.

Legislation to levy and collect the income tax followed shortly thereafter.... *Sigh*

Obviously an important date for you Curmudgeon, hope you are well.

Jean-Luc Picard said...

Whover voted to collect income tax!

SQT said...

Yeah, who exactly voted for this?

Patti said...

You're right, Curmy, really didn't want to know.
