Old Glory and Taxes
A Dutch pastor was explaining symbolism of the red, white and blue flag of The Netherlands to an American pastor.
The first pastor said, “Our flag is symbolic of our taxes. We get red when we talk about them, white when we get our tax bills, and blue after we pay them.”
The American nodded his understanding. “I know what you mean. It’s the same in the United States, only we see stars, too.”
