April 15th, Tax Day, is notorious in the United States -- a day when millions of people fork over thousands of their hard-earned tax dollars to the federal government. But, hard-earned does not mean well-spent, as nearly half of what you pay in federal income taxes is sent directly to the Pentagon!
