In Training This Week
Remember how they say don't ever volunteer for something in the military? I was always the guy who stuck his hand up. Typically it worked out great and I always had fun, but this time around I'm doing something I've said in the past I would never do... taxes. I'm volunteering as a tax rep on base, so all this week I'll be chained to a desk listening to IRS geeks show me how to push buttons on a computer. How did I ever get suckered into this one?
Something tells me that bamboo shoved under the fingernails would be quicker and less painless.
Oh well, enjoy.
Schwarzenegger and son hurt in collision
I'm just glad nobody was seriously hurt. Can you imagine being the bonehead who cut off the Governator and his son, causing the accident? He should probably be in serious condition by now after Mr. T-100 grabbed him by his neck and pulled him through the car window.
Bolivia seeks Chinese investment
First Venezuela, now Bolivia... what's going on down in South America? We're on the verge of the second Socialist Revolution? Of course Cuba and China are doing what they can to help.
Dick Cheney rushed to hospital
He must have been the guy who cut off Schwarzenegger. I wish Cheney well, but damn I hope this is Condi's chance to take over as the VP. Vice President Condi Rice. I love the sound of that.

The *TAX* rep???
You better get an MSM out of this deal. . .
1)The Fair Tax...dig it.
2)VP Condi?...blehh...President Cheney - now we're talking!
You volunteered for the tax job rep?! You're a good man because I wouldn't ever volunteer for something like that. My best, put in a good word to the IRS for me. Does that mean you'll help with my taxes?
Also I had an ex that was the "bonehead" who crashed into the former Governor of Maryland. Except the Governor was fine and my ex went unconcious for a few days. He didn't even remember calling me to tell me his was in the hospital or even me visiting him.
Hubby's experience with "volunteering" has usually been looking elsewhere while everyone else quickly steps back.
Ya'd think that after all these years he'd start paying attention...
The trick to taxes is understanding how they have a formula going, and want to try and balance both sides of the equation to get a number that's "right" - which is very vague thing to say, but my wife says it to me when she does it and I trust her, but she's had a lot of accounting and tax prep experience, and dealing with the IRS for a big University in the Controller's Office ...10:29 PM
Unless the Tax Office set up for rotating shifts literally within my duty section, I can't volunteer for jack or squat. Although, a mid shift tax service would probably see a lot of business...4:19 AM
You're such a good Capt! I'd volunteer for taxes, but I've been too busy on operation GOLDEN FLOW. I wouldn't want to be humiliated doing someone's taxes, anyhow. So YOU GO, Capitan!10:44 PM
Has the IRS abducted you, bro?6:45 PM
