    Default Isn't Today Tax Day?

    Just wondering. I came to RTF expecting to see all kinds of mean and nasty stuff about the gooberment and taxes. I just got done writing one of those kind of checks where you have to write really small to fit everything on it. So imagine my disappointment that there was no thread here with folks blowing off steam.

    FWIW, I have been feeling a little bit Republican these days. I guess that finding out that one of my main competitors received $1.75 million in stimulus money from the Feds kinda pisses you off like that. I guess I'm turning into an angry white male.

    A little bit Republican? They are the worse when it comes to Crony Capitalism and handing out dough. The Repubs call it stimulus and the Dems call it subsidies. Both are anti-Capitalism practices!

    What's nice to know is one does not have to share their capital gains with the government when their bracket is 25% & under, though I'm sure a guy of your life style doesn't have that luxury. It's also nice to know that one can accumulate a nest egg of $10.5 Mil for their heirs. Have a ways to go but a little inflation will probably help.

    What's not nice, courtesy of Slick Willie, is paying taxes on money one previously paid taxes on. But you may not have to worry, there may be no SS money left .

    Our checks weren't as big as your I'm sure, but did get to cut a couple. Have to keep the money flowing so Franco's most conservative D Senator can keep it flowing to the barge operators. It's a day when you can call them that & find that the socialist is just about as conservative, & Franco is still lambasting crony capitalism. Shows what smoking too much weed will do for one's stuff .

    buzz, I am sure glad to see you're finally seeing the light. Since this country is going to hell in a handbasket you might want to think about moving to another country - you know one with lower federal taxes, pure free market health care, a better economy,less government spending per capita or unit GDP, and less restrictive gun laws. Let us know if you find such a country.
