  1. Income. There's a weird tipping point in tax rates that makes it cheaper and easier to go ahead and pay up at lower rates than construct elaborate tax shelters. It's odd but whenever taxes are lowered, there's more revenue. Some favored tax shelters encumber money for many years and it only really pays to go that route at higher rates. One of my many consulting jobs was for a tax lawyer and I saw the lengths that people will go to legally avoid paying taxes. There are enough shelters and loop holes to drive a battleship through. You didn't really think congress has the country
  2. There's no such thing as altruism on that level. When the elites let go of money, it's either a tax break or a publicity stunt. People that have banked that kind of money don't throw it away. They'll hire accountants and tax lawyers and in the end, pay less than their secretary. There's a reason the tax code is something like forty-five bound volumes. If you are a plumber or electrician you can't afford the loopholes or the expertise to use them. I'm in favor of a flat tax. 10-12% no deductions. All the crooked loopholes go null and void and the null and void tax lawyers an
  3. Way back in January a lot of people I know said they hand the "crud". You know sinuses, cold like symptoms and feeling bad for a few days. My 92-year-old mother had it. We tested positive for corona antibodies. This bug is a lot like pulling the lever on a slot machine. Most of the time, nothing happens. Then, a poor unlucky sap pulls the lever, gets three lemons and gets zapped. A lot of people have had this thing and it just bounced. Made in China rubbish!
  4. LOL, but I got there first.
  5. My Carona Ooh my head and sinuses are a pain. When you gonna give me a break Carona? Ooh you make my nose run, my nose run. I’m coughing all the, all the time Carona Go away, you’re no damned fun. Screwing up sports and spring break Carona. Such a dirty germ. Going around Carona Infecting everybody My my my i yi woo. M M M My Carona Come a little closer, you’ll get it too. Close close enough to get some Carona. Where I got you is a mystery, How did you get to me? Always getting around, M M M My Carona M M M My Carona When you gonna go away, go away
  6. Sounds more a lot more like Arkansas.
  7. When the Pollen Drops on us in Dixie When the pollen drops on us in Dixie, And turns all our cars lime green, It's a time every year that brings a tear, And reminds us that it's finally spring!
  8. I really rather not let this thread go political. I'm pretty sure Trump doesn't have horns and, I'm damned sure the democrats don't have halos. Neither one is a scintillating choice.
  9. The asinine idea was just two friends bantering. The important part is where it went.
  10. "That has to be the most asinine idea I've ever heard." Marty rolled his eyes and shooed the cat away from the cold pizza box. "Really? That's rich coming from a guy that is dating James." Ray said in a mock Yoda voice, "The dumb is strong with this one, Breed he should not." Somewhere down the hall the thump of a techno dance song began as Marty replied, "What's the story with you and James anyway? Of all the guys you could have chosen..." "It's so very, very simple even Mr. Tie-me-up-and-spank-me-like-a-dirty-dirty-whore should understand it. We love each other and have s
  11. Judge Vinson said, “Tim truly is gifted. I’ve seen it before in a rare social worker or two. They just know how to handle boys. It’s not something that can be taught. Now we get to you Rebel.” Rebel stuck his jaw out and looked like he was preparing himself for a whipping. Detective Monroe said, “We just picked your mother up for a DUI.” Rebel said, “That was predictable. She got some money so; she was off to the liquor store.” Judge Vinson said sadly, “You know she’s an alcoholic and, she can’t take care of you. You’ve been taking care of her. Tim has offered me a solution
  12. I do love audio books and those are the very best kind: free!
  13. My Halloween story- too late. 😞 The Big Empty Every port worth a damn has a place run by an old sailor where the food is good; the beer is cheap and has ladies of negotiable virtue. At Kingston Station in the Harimon system, that place was run by a salty old codger named Colly who had run the triangle route on the Plymouth Star for forty years until he hung it up, took his pension and opened a place of his own. Old Colly’s was the sort of place where sailors from whatever ships were in system could have a few drinks, eat some really good chow and tell their stories.
