From today’s excellent batch of Thomas Sowell’s Random Thoughts:
More than half of all people filing income tax forms use someone else to prepare the forms for them. Then they have to sign under penalty of perjury that these forms are correct. But if they were competent to determine that, why would they have to pay someone else to do their taxes for them in the first place?
That actually may be connected to another of his points:
If you read all the fine print in all the documents you have to sign, you would have no time left to live a life.
