Music Thursday: Tax Man

With the Presidential Debate in Nashville earlier this week, I have been in somewhat of a political mood. Before the debate, the PETA pig was wasting gas and emitting more carbon into the atmosphere by driving around Belmont supporting a "sin tax" on meat. They want the government to add a 10% tax on all meat, comparing it to alcohol and cigarettes, then using the ole "global warming" excuse. I don't think I have to get into how ridiculous this is...remember you're reading a bbq food blog. If this absolutely absurd idea came into effect, I would raise and slaughter my own chickens, pigs and cows. I think that the Ulika "bootleg" Slaughterhouse has a nice ring to it.

In this political climate, I just felt that this was the most appropriate song for music Thursday. Whoever gets elected as President, our taxes are going to go up. After all, the government does have to buy a new national debt sign.

"You will find the bigger piggies
Stirring up the dirt
Always have clean shirts to play around in."
