"Liberty cracks me up.

I am guessing he has at least 4 or 5 locks on the door"

Our doors remain unlocked all the time except when we go on vacation. Trust me, if you walked up to our front door, you would do a 180 and leave pretty quick just from the sound of the dog.

"I am also guessing a pistol under the mattress"

I'm too suicidal to own a gun.

You have just batted a big fat goose egg, buddy.

I love you, CW!! I'll apply for it. The pay is lousy, but the job description is pure heaven!! Hell, I do that for free down at the library sometimes.

Hey Autie. Will you take me fishing sometime? I'm more of a pocket fisherman but I guess I coud do that while you catch some crappie or something. I hear the Kaw has some real tasty catch. Oh, the topic. I don't have to pay taxes. I'm a Constitutionalist. You know, "God, Guts, and Guns Made America Great", "I Will Give Up My Gun When They Pry My Cold, Dead Fingers From Around It", that sort of stuff. Besides, I don't work, only because I feel that work is prostitution. If anything, Big Brother should be paying me.

CreatureComforts, your avatar is traumatic for me. As I explained yesterday, I spent last week in a dark cell in a Tiajuana jail with 5 men who looked like Ron Jeremy. They did unspeakable things to me. But really, Ron was one of my favorite actors in the 70's and 80's. He and Seka made some great cinema.

"WICHITA — It was, he figured, just supposed to be a harmless little nocturnal gathering with friends to do some drugs at a south Wichita house.

Almost before he knew it, however, a 24-year-old man was naked and running down the street, fleeing gunshots."

Yep, prospector, that was me. I get into some kinda BS everytime I go to Wichita to party. Those folks weren't my friends. I just smelled the weed and invited myself in. The trouble started when I decided to get nekked. See, I don't look too good nekked, and these gals started vomiting. So the men took me out on the front lawn and started kicking me with steel-toed boots. I was able to get up and run, but caught a little buckshot in both cheeks. I'm still sitting here nekked, too sore to put clothes on yet. Also, I'm actually 45, not 24, but all the booze has kept me pretty well preserved.

Dena, I found that out yesterday when I went to the McDonalds that is on Iowa up close to Walmart.

Online. My taxes are pretty straightforward so I don't worry much about it being wrong and being audited. Plus, I get my refund a lot faster that way,

Oak, who told you that. I use to work at McDonalds when I was going through college and I don't think that is true. There are all kinds of crazy rumors that get started. I remember one similar that alleged that a customer got charged more if they took it "to go." That wasn't true. Doubt this one is also.

I just found out that McDonalds is starting to charge patrons who use the lobby extra. I remember when they didn't even have a lobby. It was strictly drive thru.

In these times when charges for filing on paper will just go up, and the difference between refund returns grows, why of why file on paper? Do it online, get printer, print copy, put in fire box, drink beer to celebrate.

BABBOY, Under the mattresses is for money.
Pillows are for pistols.

Liberty cracks me up.

I am guessing he has at least 4 or 5 locks on the door and possibly one of those bars that latch across the entire door way. I am also guessing a pistol under the mattress is foregone conclusion.

(all which means I think he is wimp)

I do pretty much everything online and have electronic banking. It is easy and quick and if you want you can save a copy of everything so you always have proof of transactions.

Always on paper. I also tape the envelope closed to prevent tampering.

Didn't we have this question a while back? I recall commenting that we have a CPA do our taxes. And we e-file.
Friday...........FINALLY! Is it beer o'clock yet?!

So we have someone from San Francisco, and actress, and a brewer. Good guess to say that 3/4 are most likely liberal.

Waiting for the ultra-conservatives on here to call BS and say that those three don't file tax returns because as we all know only conservatives pay taxes.
