In Case You've Wondered

My blog is where my wandering thoughts are interspersed with stuff I made up. So, if while reading you find yourself confused about the context, don't feel alone. I get confused, too.

If you're here for the stories, I started another blog:

One other thing: sometimes I write words you refuse to use in front of children, or polite company, unless you have a flat tire, or hit your thumb with a hammer.

I don't use them to offend; I use them to embellish.

Let's Do Some Math

We'll take 7 million and divide it by 14% of 50,000

7,000,000/(.14*50,000)= 1000

Now, what is the significance of this problem? I'll explain:

President Obama spent $7,000,000 of taxpayer money for his Christmas vacation to Hawaii. This equals to the paid taxes of 1000 workers, or families that made $50,000 and paid a federal income tax rate of 14%. That's an entire year of labor and nothing to show for it, except for the President to fly to Hawaii to play some golf and dick around for a few days.

Seven million is a drop in the bucket of government waste, so the number of people that have to work all year to pay for this waste is substantially higher.

I don't know about you, but these types of things infuriate me. The arrogance and condescension is intolerable. Write your congress critter and let them know. I do, and I'm not polite. 


  1. I see the Egyptians rising up against Morsi and I'm jealous.

  2. From what I've read, the crowd in front of the Supreme Court today was in the hundreds of thousands. A simple truthful report by the media would have placed the event in proportion. Unfortunately, they were more worried about whether Taylor Swift had a boob job.
