I Have a Dream

And Obama is killing it. So is the Queen of my State.

My state is now officially in as bad a state as California. Per capita our debt is the same. Isn't that nice? Of course, she told us time and time again before the election last year that there was NO state deficit and that her challenger, Dino Rossi, was simply misleading people.

Uh huh. Right. We knew the truth then and now it's coming to light. Dino was right. We are in way deeper than even he said.

So do the Dems in charge talk about spending cuts? Of course not! They want to TAX us more!

I mean, it makes sense right. When you or I have a cash flow problem we don't cut our spending. We get more credit cards to take on more debt or we force our boss to give us a raise right?

Oh...we don't do that? Well, why not? It's what the government wants to do.

I have been dreaming of opening my own bead store for years now. I would LOVE to do it and there are plenty of open shops in my area right now and I bet the rent is cheap too. But can I and would I? Hell no.

The tax process alone is a nightmare. Even for my small jewelry business it takes too much time to figure out the complicated stated tax process...which is generally more cumbersome than the federal one. Add employees and salaries and being my own boss with the taxes that entails ... good grief. I'd be insane to start a business!

So thank you very much Queen Christine and Messiah. You're doing a great job of stimulating me to keep my ambition tempered and my goals crushed.

Bastards.

They just raised our taxes in California, but they also cut some programs too. So, we will be paying lots more in sales and gasoline taxes. Well, I'll just quit buying stuff then. We are still on a downward spiral and that's going to last well into next year. My prediction for what it's worth.

Have a terrific day honey. :)
