  • Taxed enough already, kid?
You know how it is each April. You'd think your kids would be happy. Summer is just around the corner. Little League season is starting up. In short, there's a lot to look forward to.

But no. All your kids can think of is the @$%&in' government. 'Cause April is tax time, and nothing pisses off the kiddies more than filing that annual 1040 form.

Well, good news! Now your tykes have an outlet.

A 22-year-old student in Alton, Illinois, has formed an organization specifically tailored for angry, small-government-minded juveniles. It's called the Alton Youth TEA (Taxed Enough Already) Party Organization and it's having a rally this very month!

"I am very conservative. The youths don't know what is going on, and we don't have anything that focuses on getting news to kids," Eric Maxon, founder of the group told the Alton Telegraph this week. "Our generation will be the outcome of legislation being passed now. We will pay for it in the end."

Word up! The rally takes place Nov. 28 at Alton's Gordon Moore Community Park.

Viva la revolucion!
