I've been reading a blog called Sleep Talkin' Man that's been getting a lot of attention lately. I also ordered one of the t-shirts they sell and it came within a few days. I don't know if I beat the rush, if the t-shirts aren't as popular as the site, or if they are just handling the demand well.
There are a lot of good quotations but two of my recent favorites are:
"No, not the cats. Don't trust them. Their eyes. Their eyes. They know too much."
"Hey, don't... don't say anything. Why don't you put it in an email, then I can ignore it at my pleasure."
Warning if you decide to check out the rest of the blog, some of the language may be offensive.
I was reviewing a website and saw something that really irritated me. Up in the righthand corner of the online store's site was "no sales tax".
It seems like false advertising to me. Yes, the store won't charge you sales tax if your purchase is going to another state but you are still required by your state to pay the tax when you file your income taxes. Implying that you are not responsible for this seems like shady business practices to me. If they are willing to encourage you to cheat the government out of the taxes you owe* then why would you think that the store/company wouldn't cheat you when/if they could?
I think we (me!) are taxed too much but disagreeing with it doesn't mean we shouldn't pay it. It's better to elect politicians that will decrease the size of the government and its spending.
