Protesting against the man.


Now I really am one of those freaky Democrats who believe in paying taxes, in the hopes that my money will go somewhere useful and to provide services that I need.

However, I found this hysterical.

Man Pays Big Tax Bill in Coins, $1 Bills

MUNCIE, Ind. – Cary Malchow was so upset by his property tax bill he decided to make a scene by paying it – all $12,656.07 – with bags of change and $1 bills.

Malchow lugged the cash-filled bags to the Delaware County treasurer’s office Monday and plunked them onto the counter. His unorthodox payment stalled the line as cashiers labored to count it by hand.

“I did it so people can physically see what $12,000 is,” said Malchow, who has staged other recent protests to draw attention to Indiana’s property tax increases.

Malchow arrived at the treasurer’s office about 3:30 p.m., with the money covering the bill for his Muncie home, business and rental properties. It took all three of the office’s cashiers 75 minutes to count out the cash.
