Sorry for my relative silence over the last few days, but I had to get my taxes together. My employer gave me K-1s in early April, so I had to push to meet the April 17th deadline. Maybe if I weren’t negatively disposed to the way the US government uses the money, I would be more chipper. Instead, I think we should hold elections near April 20th, or move the normal tax filing date to October 31st, which would highlight the ghouls that are sucking our blood for little good reason.
Of course the politicians would never do this. A sleepy electorate is the best electorate. The cozy duopoly of the Democrats and Republicans helps insure that no change will happen to the dysfunctional political process that we now have.
