Government Taxes/Fees

In my opinion, a significant number of Americans believe our government wastes a lot of taxpayer dollars. What I find interesting is that a growing number of businesses are recognizing this and as a not-so-subtle form of protest are finding satirical ways to refer to taxes in their online advertising.

Examples: The Heart Attack Grill (which is about as politically incorrect as it gets) states there is a "8.1% tax for our wasteful Government to squander".  Spirit Airlines refers to federal excise taxes, security fees, passenger facility fees and segment fees as the "Government's Cut".

I know it is completely delusional to think that politicians and bureaucrats will get the message and start cutting taxes & spending but I do hope more businesses will join the protest.
