Georgia is hilarious

Macon, it turns out, used to have a hockey team called Whoopie.

Yeah, the Macon Whoopie. nyuk. nyuk. nyuk.

Someone had a "problem", so they changed to the Macon Tracks. C'mon people.

The Master Plan (Subtitle: Damn Taxes)

I'm pissed.

I'm taking LIFE Economics again. for fun. Maybe I'll get my master's in Business with an emphasis in ACCOUNTING!! Why? So I can beat Big Daddy Taxman with a hot iron! How is it possible that I'm in a low tax bracket, pay 1/3 of my paycheck to the government-- and still owe a monstorous amount of which I will pay small portions for the rest of the year? Let's make the 30% I've already PAID 40, shall we? And while we're at it--

LOCK ME UP! So I can live for *&(&* FREE on my O W N tax dollars-- probably actually pocketing more money pressing PLATES in the SLAMMA workhouse than I do in the education profession right now!! Or maybe-- let me sit on my COUCH in my FRILLY pajamas and watch DAYS OF OUR LIVES and have BABIES so I can collect W E L F A R E, enjoy free H E A L T H C A R E, and perhaps use a portion of the 40% of the wages that I've worked for. Our nation is bankrupt and daily digging deeper and deeper into the debt habit---so much so that our president is about to PAY us just to go S H O P P I N G (another "New Deal", GW style). Our nation is a bureaucracy designed to support the people who run the machine. The rich really ARE getting richer and the poor---well honey, we just PO. What has happened to America?

Jefferson?

A wise and frugal government, which shall leave men free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor and bread it has earned - this is the sum of good government.


Experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms of government those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny.

Every government degenerates when trusted to the rulers of the people alone. The people themselves are its only safe depositories.

Tonight is the first night I've considered becoming an expat and setting up a pancake or boogeyboard shop on the coast of F I J I.

Did I mention I'm pissed?

Off to find my iron.

flat tax, oh flat tax----you make too much sense for idiots!

Hope


I love Rascal Flatts' song "Feels Like Today." Every time it comes on the radio, I want to scream it in an empty room... in a happy sort of way. heh.

I woke up this morning
With this feeling inside me that I can't explain
Like a weight that I've carried
Been carried away, away
But I know something is coming
I don't know what it is
But I know it's amazing, you save me
My time is coming
And I'll find my way out of this longest drought


Sometimes, it's hard to hold on to the "knowing" that something is coming when everything in your logic-speaks-louder f a c e screams the opposite is true.

You treat life like a picture
But its not a moment frozen in time
It's not gonna wait
Til you make up your mind, at all

So while this storm is breaking
While there's light at the end of the tunnel
Keep running towards it
Releasing the pressure, that's my heartache
Soon this dam will break

Once, I stood with some friends in a funeral parlor and prayed that the Lord would work a miracle and bring a close friend back to life. I understand why the disciples just went home when Jesus died. Game Over, right? Simple. In a casket. In your face. See: This Changes Everything Sometimes, it's easier to go home than risk looking like a psycho when God doesn't show up as you expect.

One thing is true--the Lord has plans that are strategic (even when they don't make sense to me) <---- That wasn't easy to type! Nothing that He does is anything less than utterly amazing and just as it should be. Every morning is a new opportunity to live in the Hope we have because of His sacrifice. It's freedom today and freedom forever. hrrrmmm...and that's the gospel according to Rascal Flatts? ;)

He Lives!

gloom. sunshine. a new day.
