  1. Interesting video on how Uncle Sam has morphed over the centuries in terms of appearance and more. Still and all, he’s an Uncle I’d just as soon steer clear of, like the IRS. I have plenty of taxes taken out of both ‘official’ jobs. Being paid cash unofficially on my 3rd job is VERY nice and helpful.
