I am not blaming anyone - I do my own taxes and I am lazy. What does "illegally defrauding Illinois" mean if it is not an accusation that one didn't pay their taxes??

10-23-14 "Amazon posted its third quarter earnings results today and they were not pretty: the company said it had a operating loss of $544 million, more than twenty times what was lost for the same period in 2013. Its revenues grew to $20.84 billion, an increase of 20 percent over the same period last year, but less than what investors were expecting. In its projections for next quarter, Amazon said…

If you actually did pay the use tax on line 23 you are exceptionally unusual and I never accused you of not paying your use tax. As far as over paying your use tax, that is no ones fault but your own (don't blame your accountant or tax preparer you are responsible for everything that goes on your tax return). Line 23 can be used to report ACTUAL use tax owed or you can use the USE TAX TABLE…

I am as cynical as they come - even I wouldn't believe the smoke bomb theory - Rosie O'Donnell probably would.

Or the voters might allow the school district to take care of that on Tuesday. And, no, I don't believe anyone with the School District shoved smoke bombs in the vents...although I'm guessing some of the grassy knollers thought that when they read the story. BG

Strawman: Is He REALLY Mad as Hell?

5 months, 1 week ago by Strawman

I don’t know about you but I’m feeling a whole lot better about the most recent developments on the Veteran’s Administration debacle now that Barack Obama is aware we have problems in that department.  I was SO relieved that the president said, “He was mad as hell and would get to the bottom of it,” AGAIN.  Why, the president actually sent a senior staff member to Arizona to help the V.A. get their act together.  That ONE GUY is going to make a difference!  And once he’s done we’ll get the usual, “it’s been investigated, nothing to see here” rhetoric that comes as standard equipment.  Count on it.   

The video montage shows that when the droppings hit the fan, Obama reaches into his usual bag of recycled responses and we end up getting more of what we’ve been getting from the president for years; lies.  

The list of the Obama scandals is as long as the Affordable Care Act and it's getting longer each day.  The pandering to the special interests while, at the same time, ignoring veterans and those still on active duty is unacceptable and un-called for.  Do you now understand why I’ve called the Obama administration the “get-even-with-Whitey” group for years here?  Is some of this starting to sink in?

It’s my hope that with Memorial Day coming up and the Fishing for Freedom event just around the bend, each of us take some time to pay homage to those who have served our great country.  Please do so while there’s still time—and while we’re still allowed to.

And if, by chance, you are not mad as hell about what this administration has done to our veterans, and our country then my heart goes out to you.  My fear is that you’ll wake up long after it’s too late to do something about it.
