And its so true. I'm so sick and tired of everything that goes on with the government every day now.
It was not like this when I was young. You got to keep most of the money you made then instead of having to let the government steal it from you like they do today.

It isn't really correct to call this a speech. It was a final scene in the first-ever talking picture appearance by the world's number one silent movie star, Charlie Chaplin. Written, directed, produced, and starring Chaplin, 1940's "The Great Dictator" was Chaplin's spoof of Hitler and Nazism, and it won most major Academy Awards.
The speech was given by a Jewish barber who was a look-a-like for and was impersonating Adenoid Hynkel, the Hitler-like Dictator of Tomainia (both characters played by Chaplin).
Though there was much difficulty in producing the film due to the fact that appeasement was still the primary world-wide response to Hitler, Chaplin's independence and wealth enabled him to produce the film himself. By the time of its completion, the US and England had entered WWII against Germany and the movie was a giant hit.
Years later, Chaplin said that had he known the full extent of Nazi atrocities, it would have been much harder for him to have produced this comedic depiction of such events.
While Chaplin was a pioneer in the motion picture industry and is universally regarded as comedic genius, after the release of "The Great Dictator", he was sued for plagiarism and paid what was at the time a huge settlement to the person who claimed that he had written the story.
Burger Boy: Taxes are now the lowest they have been since Truman was President. Federal, state and local income taxes consumed 9.2% of all personal income in 2009, the lowest rate since 1950, according to a 2010 report from the Bureau of Economic Analysis. That rate is far below the historic average of 12% for the last half-century, and the overall tax burden hit bottom in December, 2009, at 8.8.% of income before rising slightly in the first three months of 2010.
