This is kind of cool, the lid popped off of the jar that has been holding back my rants.

I want to bitch about taxes too. I'll lay out the reason for this.

I just had the pay period from hell. This eclipsed the previous pay period from hell by 20 hours. Anyone want to explain to me why I brought home the same amount of money? WTF is this? One works overtime for 2 reasons. 1. to make MORE money 2. He/She has no choice because their employer says so. One should be rewarded with a bigger paycheck after putting in a bunch of extra time tied to the grindstone.

I lost 700 dollars to taxes! WTF? That's a whole goddamn paycheck to some folks and I lost it to fucking taxes. That's bad enough, but the nature of one of these taxes really pisses me off. City income tax.

I understand that some cities have an income tax. My issue with the thing is that I am not a resident of this particular city. I just work there. So what you're telling me is that I have to pay "tribute" to you for the pleasure of working in your city? Whatever happened to taxation WITH representation? As someone who is NOT a resident of your city, where's my representative? Isn't this the kind of shit that started the American Revolution?

I think I'm going to write my Congresscritter and suggest a couple changes to the tax code that will really help the American worker and maybe, if anyone actually reads this, we could get a national movement going here.

1. Abolish income taxes on any hours worked over 40 in a week. That way, the overtime earned actually goes to the tax payer giving him or her more money to spend thereby relieving many of the economic issues which face this country. can only tax my first 40 hours, so if I work say can't tax the 20 hours of overtime. That money goes to me and trust me, I'll spend it somewhere.

2. Abolish the ability of a city government to withold an income tax on a worker that is not a resident of that city. I shouldn't have to pay "tribute" to you in order to work there. I'm only there 8 hours a day, why should you be able to tax me? It's not like you plow the damn roads in the winter anyway, bastards.

Lower taxes means more money to the people who will spend it and more spending means better economic times for everyone. Listen close left wing fucktards, if you raise taxes on businesses, the businesses will up their prices accordingly to make up for revenue lost to said taxes. In short, if you raise taxes on businesses (like oil companies) they're going to raise prices and fuck all of us. Morons.


I very rarely ask for any advice here, mostly because I doubt anyone actually reads this, but I need to make an exception.

I think by now, anyone who does read this knows that my primary carry gun is a Springfield Armory M1911-A1 Mil-Spec. I shoot as often as my budget allows and I have a few thousand rounds through the gun.

My problem goes like this. A guy at work is putting on a charity PPC shoot to benefit a Police Dog who has been retired due to doggie cancer. The proceeds from the shoot will assist in the vet bills for treatment. A most worthy cause, IMHO. I have done the Google thing and looked up the course of fire for a PPC shoot (which I shall rant about seperately) and the question becomes this.

I train for a real world hostile encounter. This means that my maximum shooting distance is 15 feet. How in the hell am I supposed to hit a target at 50 yards with a 1911? A standard B27? Can I even see that at 50 yards? Center of mass? You must be joking.

Any tips or advice would be appreciated. I'll be shooting MagTech 230FMJ's if you care.

Oh yeah, if you're in Michigan and you want info for the shoot, let me know and I'll forward it to you.


Tell me why the Lame Stream Media puts so much stock in polls? I don't get it. They ask 500 people for an opinion and then consider that gospel. What it really is, is crap.

Let's take a peek at this, shall we?

500 people are asked who should be the next president of the United States. 46% say BHO and 43% say McCain with 13% undecided. Suddenly the LSM (Lame Stream Media) go all out to say how BHO is winning and will be the next Prez. Now hold on a second here bunky.

Just for the sake of comparison, let's say there are 200,000,000 voters in the USA. I'll yank some numbers out of my ass to make it comparable to an actual LSM poll.

Now, according to my calculator, which may be wrong because I'm so busy being bitter and clinging to my guns and religion, this is roughly equal to 0.0000025% of the population. Now, would someone please explain to me how this really tiny percentage indicates a meaningful sample of American opinion?

How the hell can you take a percentage that is so small as to be ridiculous and pretend that it means anything?

Look boys, a quick lesson here. The ONLY poll that matters for shit is the one that happens in November. Untill that one is in, do us a favor and just admit that everything you say is either wishful thinking or a wild assed guess.

Oh yeah, and stop pretending that it means something.
