The Cubs' last World Series title is older than federal income tax

Glenn Beck

The Cubs' last World Series title predates even the existence of an income tax in America — a practice that began innocently enough, but soon metastasized into the IRS many resent today.

Stu simply can't believe the American electorate has allowed its hard-earned wages to be siphoned off to feed the government machine, calling it "one of the most inexplicable things in history."

"How did they do it?" Glenn asks rhetorically. "They [the government] pitted the rich against the poor. They said, 'It's the evil rich people. And it will only be them. It will never be over this low percentage. And it will only be for the very wealthy.' That was 1913. By 1919 the tax was 95 percent."
