Somehow even though my income was well below the poverty level this year, I still owed the government money because a large portion of this was contract labor. Of course this is a symptom of America's failing to foster true individualism, one more kick to those who don't raise their wrists to the corporate tongue. The iconoclastic adolescent in me would have railed and raged over this. I'm just going to shrug and never do that again.
I guess I've reached a point where I have better things to do than fight authority.
