Commentary by H.G. Listiak
Welcome to My World, where I have some random thoughts today. First of all I would like to offer the best of luck to those of you scrambling to make tomorrow's deadline to cough up Caesars' due, our taxes. How do you like the new easier to fill out forms? Are you crazy yet? Remember most I.R.S. red flags fly when you do the math wrong. Use both your fingers and toes. Next year it'll be less according to Washington's tax foundation. They say that's because tax freedom day, which marks how long into the year we have to earn just to cover our federal, state, and local tax butts came early this year, three days earlier than last year. Somehow I'm not finding much comfort in that. My next random thought deals with the all time H.G.'s World record for misinformed cluelessness. A gentleman with a foreign accent claimed he heard me say that Senator and presidential hopeful John Kerry had voted to raise taxes 350 times and added that President Bush had voted tax hikes at least that many times. First of all Kerry did vote that way 350 times from his Senate seat, but I never said a word about it. That came from Vice President Cheney. Besides, Bush has never done that sir, since the Governor of Texas does not get a vote in the U.S. Senate. I have never heard from anyone so uninformed and angry who claims to be an American voter. This my friends is frightening. And my final random thought goes to the movies. The number one film this Easter weekend was Mel Gibson's "The Passion of the Christ". It put another 17 million clams into the over 350 million dollar receipts account. Many Christians say they attended or re-attended the movie on Easter to refresh and renew their faith. The second most viewed movie on Easter weekend was "Hell-Boy". I didn't get a reason for the high numbers watching that one and was afraid to ask, as I see it ... I'm H.G. Listiak.
