    Well, my wife isn't even sure how much we make. The way she spends, I believe she thinks it is higher than it really is. I never complain, because I know she would point to the tens of thousands I've spent on my dog and hunting habits.

    Unless you know a way to extract the identities of folks from a poll, I imagine you could post and be pretty confident of your anonymity.

    He did indeed. I would NEVER have posted a quote that wasn't attributable to the person who wrote it. You'd have to read the whole post to decide if he took it to the gutter or not.

    Gooser, what kinda dough you talkin about? cookie dough can't be taxed (well, I suppose unless you are Ms. Fields or the Girl Scouts...., I am sure if Obama becomes Pres he will try to find a way to tax Girl Scout cookies)...

    don't know why it would be extra-curricular....what you doin' with that cookie dough Gooser?

    Dear Fellow Business Owners:

    As a Business owner who employs 70 people, I have resigned myself to the
    fact that Barack Obama will be our next President, and that my Taxes and
    Fees will go up in a BIG way.

    To compensate for these increases, I figure that the Customer will have to
    see an increase in my fees to them of about 8%. I will also have to lay off 6
    of my employees. This really bothered me as I believe we are family here
    and didnʼt know how to choose who will have to go. So, this is what I did.
    I strolled thru the parking lot and found 8 Obama bumper stickers on my
    employees cars. I have decided these folks will be the first to be laid off.


    I can't think of another more fair way to approach this problem. If you have a better idea, let me know. I am sending this letter to all Business owners that I know'
    That's right baby and I'm a CAT 5!

    You won't be alone, but it's no sweat.....BHO has a plan that will cover those who are unemployed. Right, Bruce?

    I have wondered the same thing. Based on the opinions posted here concerning taxes I have concluded that the majority of the folks here are making in excess of $250,000. Who would have thought that selling dog training videos was that lucrative?
