What is California smoking?

From: http://www.latimes.com/news/local/la-me-pottax24-2009feb24,0,7534269.story

It seems California wants to legalize pot and then tax it to death to try and solve their economic woes.

An assemblyman from San Francisco announced legislation Monday to do just that: make California the first state in the nation to tax and regulate recreational marijuana in the same manner as alcohol.

I'm sure some 'toker' somewhere, is already planning a trip out to L.A.

But as usual, some people don't like it...

"This would open another door in Pandora's box," said Calvina Fay, executive director of Save Our Society From Drugs. "Legalizing drugs like this would create a whole new set of costs for society."

Oh, yea, like building new prisons, adding new cops, drug edumakation, etc.

At this point, it costs more to try and get rid of the stuff than it would be to just let people smoke it.

Come on, now, let's be a little realistic here. You're not gonna rid of the stuff. People are still gonna smoke it. So why not let them enjoy it, let natural selection take its course and make some money while you're at it?

Now, if that happens, maybe we can convince the other 49 states besides Nevada to legalize prostitution, we'd be set...

Well, all the fun stuff is finally over.

Like the Superbowl, the Emmy's, Valentine's Day. This month has been kinda of hectic even though it's short enough as it is anyway. Oh, I forgot, it's Black History Month, to boot.

Isn't there ANY month around that there ISN'T anything going on?

Geez, it's like everytime you turn around, there's some event going on. It gets on a guys nerves you know.

Whatever happened to just having a normal month with nothing going on? Geez!

I swear, if I hear of those sciencebozos wanting a holiday, I'm gonna flip...

Sorry if this is kinda of a sort post, I have just been working lately and haven't had a chance to think of a good post.

Maybe next time...

Thanks for reading.

And the award goes to....

Whoever can put up with those awards shows. The Grammys, Oscars, Emmys, all of them. Just a bunch of self serving tripe. I'd like to know who does the voting for these things. I never got a ballot to vote for any nominees , did you? But then again, the average American doesn't usually vote for their favorite politician anyway. They either:

A) too lazy to vote (I'm sorry, if you can spend all day googling Britney Spears' latest pr0n...*cough*...MUSIC video off of youtube...)
B) too uninformed about issues and candidates (30 second spots between episodes of American Idol doesn't count.)
C) too apathetic (then I don't care to to hear your whining about the way things are...)

Or people like me:

So disenfranchised with the way things are being run that either way you vote, you're still gonna get screwed.

But anyway, the awards show THAT really gets me going is the screen actors' guild award.

Is that such a bunch of self serving. self absorbed bullsh*t? Actors giving OTHER actors awards.

'Yes, I'd like a table for one and 50 for my HEAD.'

'Yes sir, we can sit you next to Jennifer Lopez and George Lucas...'

But to be totally honest, getting award for something you did, is a nice gesture. But in the end, just doing the best job you can should be award enough.

Thanks for reading.

It's that time of the year again...

No. I'm not talking about Valentine's Day. I'm TALKING tax season! Where uncle sam decides to give us back our money after taking it from us all year round.

Being the nice guy that I am, I'm gonna hand out some tips and advice to make sure you keep all your hard earned money.

(Note: These advice is intended for informative purposes. And should only be used if the situation applies to you. For more information, contact a profession tax consultant or CPA.)

For starters, don't fall for those RAL/rapid refund schemes. Most of the time they take out a good chunk of your refund. Unless you're desperate for the cash, then do what you gotta do.

Second, why go to those tax guys when you can go online at http://irs.gov and get either get your taxes done for FREE and file them FREE. And takes less time to wait for your refund check.

If you don't have access to a computer at home, take a trip to the library. One: they have computers you can use. Two, some branches have volunteers to help you out with your taxes for FREE.

And if all possible, open a checking account and get your refund check DIRECT DEPOSITED! Why give those check cashing places 3-10% fee for your check?

It's your money, you have a right to get ALL of it back.

Thanks for reading!
