I refer of course to Tax Day.
For many years I worked for a Canadian organization. I went to Toronto many times during my time with this organization for meetings, training, etc. There were some guys there who took every opportunity to tell me how much better it was living in Canada than in the U.S. Free health care, better beer, prettier women. I will say that I always enjoyed my visits. Toronto is probably the cleanest city I've ever seen. The people are friendly and polite. One guy was telling me how he got about a thousand dollars from the government to be used for education for his child but basically he could use it for anything he wanted. I asked him what his tax rate was and it was a ridiculous amount, much higher than my rate. I asked him, "Don't you see what they're doing? They're taking money out of your pocket, putting some back in your other pocket and you think you're getting something for nothing."
