Yeah, well, when I'm in a hurry sometimes I don't use the perfect search
term. I wasn't just searching on 'Grace Commission', I was searching for
the paragraph I remember reading decades ago backing up what I said.

Nope. Right there in the wikipedia link you yourself provided (but
apparently didn't bother reading):

“With two thirds of everyone’s personal income taxes wasted or not
collected, 100 percent of what is collected is absorbed solely by
interest on the federal debt and by federal government contributions to
transfer payments. In other words, all individual income tax revenues
are gone before one nickel is spent on the services [that] taxpayers
expect from their government."

And yet you don't even know which dollar you use to measure your
'income' - or the fact that the very word 'income' has a very different
meaning than what most people think.

As you said, 'whatevs'...
