It’s National Tax Day so we do some venting about the whole topic of taxation.  We cover crazy taxes when you buy certain products in some states, the topic of “Fair Share”, and the morality of taxation.  Plus, we talk about corporate taxes, capital gains taxes, The Fair Tax and how beer might be priced if we used a progressive price plan.  Are you happy it is National Tax Day? Finally, I discuss the SEO tool Screaming Frog.
