happy father's day
And happy birthday to Eric and Sarah, too.
I apparently have good company. HRH bought a silver mini too! Actually, she didn't buy it, she sent out somebody to do her shopping for her, but the point is she has it. That's what makes me cool.
(R) This is the kind of thing that is far worse to society than drug users and prostitutes. But instead of executing them, our government pays them! It's absolutely absurd. Last year, the Missouri Department of Revenue sent me a threatening letter because I didn't file a tax return three years ago (I had less than $500 in MO state income, and the form clearly said it was not mandatory to file if you had less than $500 MO state income, but that's irrelevant to this story). Yet each year, many wealthy individuals and corporations who owe taxes are purposefully not audited, essentially tacit approval to cheat the rest of us. If the DEA and DOJ have the money to send SWAT teams to break into old people's homes to imprison them for using a medical drug prescribed by their doctor, there's plenty of money and manpower to go after every single man, woman, and legal person committing tax fraud. Unlike prisons and wars, enforcing tax codes that the rest of us follow also has the added benefit of adding to the resources available for popular priorities like education, medical care, and roads instead of draining public coffers. Of course, if you think this actually makes sense because wealth from tax cheats trickles down to the rest of us, I'd love to hear from you.
My music knowledge is so poor I don't really even understand what the results of this quiz mean. Maybe you can decipher quiz 14 for me.
