RUSH: Would you like to read a book about this?

I am not gonna pay these exorbitant tax rates. I'm not gonna be one of the few in this country productive and everybody feeds off me," and they just quit. It is a very, very long book. A movie was made of it within the past year, which, by the way, I'm sure you could rent that DVD somewhere.
