this Mama has a tax plan of her own

I know the Republicans put a lot of effort and expertise into the 2017 Tax Reform bill.  However, I have zero experience and barely understand basic economic concepts.  And yet, I’m pretty sure my tax plan is even better.

metal plate reads By Law We Must Collect Taxes

Here is the basic idea:  everyone pays a progressive percentage based on their income level.  But instead of the government allocating those tax dollars, the individual paying gets to decide.  On everyone’s tax form will be a list of expenses: military, domestic policing, fire department, education, roads, social services, etc, next to which will be an empty box.  You divide up your own taxes by percentage.  Maybe you want 100% of your taxes to go towards military one year.  Maybe you want it all to go towards women’s health services. Maybe you want to divide it equally among all categories.  Whatever.  You decide.

The system would have fairly good feedback, because as needs arise, you can allocate your tax dollars differently each year.  So if your roads are getting rough and bumpy, you can put more of your money in that category the next tax year.

I’ve been thinking this idea over on and off for several years, for a total of upwards of 7 hours, give or take.  So I think it is solid and implementable.  Best of all, I think Democrats, Republicans, Greens, Independents will all get on board because everybody gets what they want.

The only detail I don’t have locked down yet is the name.  What should this tax plan be called?

R. I. P. Diane Kitten

R. I. P. Diane Kitten

Our first official family pet was a 3 1/2 yo black lop eared rabbit. We got him through friends of friends who’s daughters weren’t paying him enough attention any more. We were told his age, he is a boy, and his name is Pepper. After just a couple weeks, I started calling him Mr. Buns because Pepper is gender neutral and I felt I couldn’t really associate a full persona without identifying him with a gender. The moniker Mr. Buns stuck and lasted for the remaining five years of his life.

So when I read this post by WhiteGirlsBeLike, I could relate on many levels. And then it occurred to me – What If Mr.Buns Was Never A Boy Rabbit?! What if he was a girl. IDK, we never took him to the vet ever. At the time, I felt confident in the information that was passed along to us, but I never even met the people that owned him. I don’t know if they had ever taken him to the vet either. I guess I’ll never know.

Not that it matters. He will always be Mr. Buns. RIP Mr. Buns

(Well, not really.  I mean, kind of.  Like you think you know someone for a whole year and then they turn out to be a completely different person so you sorta feel like the person you knew is dead.  That’s where I’m at right now.)

Alessandro and I finally took Diane Kitten to the vet after almost a year of having her (not out of neglect, we’re poor) but because she randomly started coughing and it was clear she was having trouble breathing.  We rushed her to the kitty Emergency Room and found out she has asthma so it’s all good and she has medicine and feels much better now.

We found out some things like she’s about 2 years old and has a little tracker in the back of her neck (which I totally wanna remove, especially considering we looked for her owners for a longggg time and nobody…

Want a space house? It’s hard to make a down payment in zero gravity

I’m laughing inside.

Ned's Blog

image Since establishing mankind’s studio apartment in outer space known as the International Space Station, and spaceflight becoming more available to the general public, let’s face it; the Re/Max hot air balloon will be replaced by a space shuttle before we know it.

For sale:One-bedroom module. Quiet setting on outskirts of gravity belt. Comes with docking port. Pressurized for maximum comfort. Solor-powered utilities. Includes hot plate. Only two days from Earth. $1 billion obo.

As exciting as the prospect of living in space is, we should temper our enthusiasm with a level of caution. Just like buying a fixer-upper in the Ozark Mountains through someone on the Internet, purchasing a residence 230 miles above the earth can be risky.

During a real estate symposium held last week in Washington D.C., agents stressed that there are a lot of things to consider when looking for a little spot in the solar…

Punctuation Marks We All Desperately Need…..


J.M. Weselby @ Magpie Creative Writing Services

I came across these on the Internet and had to share them with you – credit goes to Mike Trapp.

Basically, it proposes some punctuation marks that, in this digital world where much of the inflection of speech is lost, we desperately need. I think all of them are justified!!

Take a look… can you think of any others that would be useful?
