We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
I look forward to the upcoming news stories about how complicated the tax code is, how so many otherwise innocent people make "honest" mistakes, and what mean meanies the IRS is. Another thing only Obama can fix.
Just checked Drudge and apparently Daschle has withdrawn from the offered spot. Goodness, the Big O is having trouble getting folks to man up and take his appointments. Entertaining, isn't it?
It would seem that the Democrats should address something important and specific -- the fact that the tax code is so complex that not even they, who created it, can figure it out, much less obey it. Or is it that they don't feel they should have to obey it? This is getting more toxic by the day...
