And here’s the thing about being W-2’d:
Sure it makes it easier to “pay”, since it has already been taken from you and you don’t have to come up with the money later.
But then there is the whole B.S. “I got a refund!” feeling. You know, after you realize it is all your money in the first place.
Then there is the fact that having it held back makes it “easier”. But in many ways it would be better if everyone was forced to write a check. Just so citizens could have the true feeling of Giving Your Money to the Government.
Anywho, what a freaking mess.
The Nebraska Democrats are going to have another Presidential caucus in 2012 to … do something.
You know. The awesome caucus. Where you sit in a traffic jam, then you may or may not get in, and get a scrap of paper and then give up your right to the secret ballot.
The caucuses. They’re awesome.
Rock on, Dems.
And we noted before that Omaha’s head Dem, Mayor Jim Suttle, is in a doc about the recall.
The OWH said it is called, “Recall Fever.”
Except it’s not.
It is called, “Recall Fever: Stop The Madness”.
Just in case you thought this was some sort of an independent “documentary” with a neutral point of view. It is not.
It is an education video (“film”? Really?) by the U.S. Conference of Mayors for other mayors to be aware of those pesky “citizens.
Put it in your Netflix queue.
We note that Douglas County Clerk, Tom Cavanaugh, cut his operating budget by $80K — 4.3% less than the current budget.
Good for him. Sounds like it is based on a better use of technology.
And we would also note that we telling you about this because we received a press release from Cavanaugh’s office. It is amazing what you can find out, and post, when someone sends you a press release. Just amazing.
And did you see the story on Drudge about the Chicago Public School that does not let kids bring their own lunches from home, because their parents don’t pack healthy enough lunches?
Here’s the thing: If someone on the Right had claimed, say five years ago, that this sort of thing is bound to happen, the Left would have called them a paranoid right-wing nut.
And yet, here we are.
Hope the lunch you pack is healthy and yummy enough for the school’s standards…
