Old news….

Published on April 18, 2015 By bmagnus

So I just came across this little gem from December: Finally, Christian Bale recently said he felt jealous to see Ben Affleck wearing the cape and cowl – do you ever get that? No. Do you know why? Because I’m Batman. I’m very secure in that. You know, I wasn’t sure he was Batman 25 years ago, […]

Published on January 25, 2015 By bmagnus

So it turns out that Boehner knows that fixing the roads and bridges before they fall apart altogether is important. He thinks he can find the money for that out of tax “reform” that is somehow or another not raising taxes at all. In Closing: FBI; shirt; Takei; and the sad truth about illegal immigration.

And apparently, nothing says “autumn” to my local store than pumpkins and lots of boxed wine! Or perhaps you’d prefer the hard stuff? Drink that much Jack, and you’ll need the tombstone! As the nice lady sang, “Cheers to the freakin weekend! I’ll drink to that.” In Closing: personality test; Carlin; what could possibly go […]

More specifically, a Federal judge has ruled that MERS tried to circumvent state law, costing counties millions of dollars in lost recording fees, compromising public records, and confusing consumers.

Happy March! Let’s get started…. Student Loans: Officially dragging down the economy. I think I have a way to increase consumer spending: This is crazy talk I know, but if the minimum wage were higher, people who make minimum wage could afford to buy stuff. And the Supreme Court makes it worse: Now the government […]

Forbidden Fruit. Apple has been getting grilled for following the law in a manner that reduces their taxes. Frankly, most of us choose to do legal things to minimize our tax liability. Give a charitable donation? Buy a house with a mortgage? You could be guilty of following the law! I’m with the CEO of Google […]

Music Monday: April 15

George Harrison and Eric Clapton playing the opening track of Revolver, which is in my opinion the best album the Beatles ever did:   Just a reminder, my ideas for tax simplification include: Make the standard deduction equal to the poverty line.
