Today is the day we honest, hard working Americans celebrate our freedom by paying through the nose for it. It may be self evident that mankind may has been endowed by our creator with inalienable rights, but that doesn’t mean somebody can’t take those freedoms and then make a tidy little profit selling them back to you.
If you are a GM who has used the tax man to separate the players from their hard earned cash, then good for you! I myself use that trick in games I run for the wretched little blighters down to the local orphanarium. It serves as a wonderful object lesson on the nature of the Beast that will serve them well. Those that survive to earn an honest wage in one of my sweatshops, at any rate.
