To Ray Lahood
I find it fascinating that your suggestion to tax by mileage and nixed by Obama seems to be the general opinion of most politicians in power right now. This proposal hurts THE WORKING MAN. Who drives his/her car the most miles? Truck drivers, people like the Redneck who have to work out of town, commuters who work from the suburbs, that’s who. So, instead of going after people who FLY PRIVATE JETS let’s get the guy who has to sit in traffic for two hours. THAT makes sense. Because, after all, the government has totally put the money from the gas tax toward its intended use-to maintain the highways. Sure you have. My suggestion, Mr. Lahood, is to focus on how the money the government gets is being misspent rather than propose any more ideas to screw the little guy.
To The IRS
Every time I get my taxes done, it seems you are doing more and more to hurt the guy trying to make a living. For example, my CPA informed me that a new tax law went into effect in 2008 that states the Redneck can’t write off his out of town expenses if he’s on a job for longer than a year. That means if the Redneck is over in Redding for a year, his TRAILER will become his “tax home” regardless of the fact that he pays a mortgage and works his ass off to do it. So, the guy who has to leave his family to work out of town because there’s no local jobs is now limited in being able to write off his mileage, his expenses. One by one, you’ve been stripping a worker of his ability to try and “make it”. The Redneck and I do all we can to continue to put money INTO a system that doesn’t reward us much. It makes it tough to see why we shouldn’t just go on welfare and say “Fuck it”. At least the Redneck would be home.
To Our CPA
Funny conversation with Steve, our CPA.
Me: How do you do remember all those numbers from last year?
Him: It’s easy!
Me: Oh? It seems like math to me. *wrinkles nose*
Him: *enthusiastic* No, it’s interesting. Do you like playing monopoly?
Him: *crestfallen* Oh, well it’s like that. You just put the numbers in an see what happens.
Me: I’m just really glad you enjoy your work.
Thank God you do like your work, Steve. Thanks for everything.
To the Computer Guys at KMUD
I hope the next time you do a show, you do it on the upcoming technology of Ebooks. A lot of people don’t have a clue about the technology and I think it could be the wave of the future. Not that I have an ax to grind there. LOL.
