I'm starting to think about getting ready to go to bed last night when the cellphone rings. I hear this voice on the other end of the phone and immediately recognize it, notwithstanding the fact I haven't heard it in over 2 years.
Albert, my buddy from Little League days. We used to coach teams together, had our boys in the program and all the other stuff I did in that organization. Without going into an hour and a half of conversation of details, it was nice to hear from an old friend. I didn't have his telephone number and he apparently lost mine. He was at Albertson's yesterday - where my son works - went up to him and my son didn't recognize him!
Lol. I thought that amazing because we spent a LOT of time at ballfields together. But then recognition sparked: coach!
Okay, well anyway.
Quoted from a White House official: ""The president will advocate a balanced approach to controlling out of control deficits and restoring fiscal responsibility while protecting the investments we need to grow our economy, create jobs, and win the future,".
Since WHEN is Obama concerned with spending cuts? Or "fiscal responsibility"? PLEASE spare me. The ONLY reason he has jumped on that particular bandwagon is because he was on the LOSING side of the proposition!! More people, apparently, want out-of-control spending eliminated than don't!! So suddenly he is concerned about a situation that up until now, he didn't give a rat's @$$ about. Spend, spend, spend, his motto and the likes of him.
We are expected to live within our means - if we cannot - then we lose things, like houses and cars. I have no idea why the federal government and the ilk that run it think that that organization should be run any differently.
And let's can this talk of a democracy. We are a REPUBLIC, NOT a democracy. If you don't know the difference, look it up, there are definitions for it all over the web. There are important distinctions that make this - or should make this - a republic, not a democracy.
Just wanted to throw that out there.
I was reading the mortgage documents 2 days ago and it said: "Must be returned not later than April 15th". Yikes!! I thought I had until the end of the month to get that back in! I got to the bank yesterday to get a notary on all the paperwork, had to have 2 witnesses meaning - it isn't going to get sent out until this afternoon. Thank goodness for Federal Express! It's already prepaid, it will be sitting in their office tomorrow, fully a day in advance of the 15th.
Speaking of the 15th, tax day. Well, I guess they moved it up to the 18th. I'm getting mine postmarked by the 15th, I don't care, sounds like a nightmarish bad joke by the IRS: "Fooled ya, you were supposed to have it in by the 15th!" GONNNNNNNNNNG!!! You lose!!
I guess they wouldn't REALLY do that, but I don't trust that portion of the government as far as I can throw it - and considering I can't throw it anywhere, that tells you how much trust I have in it and the people that run it.
The paperwork is done, I still have to go to downtown Phoenix and get the proof that I actually did have a house fire. Today or tomorrow, either one, I'll get that piece of paper and that will be the end of it, send that stuff into the state and feds and then - let whatever trouble they want to start about it - begin!! I KNOW they aren't just going to let this pass by them, this is potentially audit material, couldn't care less, bring it on. I'm not going to get railroaded over by the IRS, not if I can help it.
Regardless, the work day almost here - not much to do, but there are some pickups that allegedly have to be done today.
