I am up to my ears again in the US tax return. This is still being done for us by PWC – this is the last year – but I still have to fill out all the data which is tedious beyond all belief. It is absolutely astonishing the things the IRS wants to know.
A man is coming next week to count our socks and underwear.
I posted a blog last nite and had a bit of a rant about politicians but I deleted it because no one wants to read that stuff. Well – maybe I will have a small rant.
Yes I know I am not an American but I do live here – and Cate pays taxes here and in Australia so I feel entitled to rant about both countries.
I signed a petition asking Elizabeth Warren to run for President. She is much too smart to do that – but it is a nice thought – she would make a great President.
She is real and honest – and hates the robber barons who are destroying the country.
And I can’t vote – but I can hope.
I can hope that congress would work to build America – to improve the lives of the underprivileged – to build the crumbling infrastructure – to improve the environment – to get everyone covered by health insurance – to get a minimum wage that allows people to live without getting food stamps – that makes the top 1% pay the same rate of tax as average wage earners.
But hey – we are making progress. The senate voted 98-1 that climate change is real and not a hoax. Even Jim Inhofe who wrote ‘The greatest hoax – how the climate change conspiracy threatens your future’.
He says now that his book has been misunderstood. It was supposed to be called ‘Muppy and the Lambkins go to the Zoo.’
But they ran into a few problems when they had to vote on whether or not we the people had anything to do with it. Most Republicans could not go that far – and especially not if they were running for President – but we are making progress.
I know you are desperate to know who voted against. It was R Wicker (R) of Mississippi.
He will now become a Fox regular.
