The Difference Between the Government and the Mafia

I saw this in a discussion over on Slashdot about New York sales/use tax – someone mentioned that “New York has always been a bit bizzare about taxes.” Someone else replied with:

They’re not bizarre; they’re just greedy for every dollar they can get their grubby little paws on. Just remember that the only difference between the government and the Mafia is that the government controls the schools.

Funny, yes, but there is an alarming amount of truth in that statement…
