How much more does the government need to know about you than what you buy and sell? From Jack Dapper at theburningplatform.com:
Good day Earth Clan—
Imagine this hypothetical situation from the not too distant future:
A widowed grandma no longer has the physical strength to take care of the yard work of her home. She has a bright and well-mannered grandson, who happens to have a pretty and polite high school sweetheart. She nurses a not-so-secret desire that God will bless her with the longevity to see her great-grandchildren. Regardless, the yard work needed to get done and so she hired her strapping young grandson to mow the lawn in the warmer months and shovel the driveway in the colder months, among other sundry tasks throughout the year. She compensated him handsomely for his efforts, paying him $3,000 over the course of year, plus $500 each on his birthday and Christmas.
