Tax breaks for whom?

If you're disposed to dislike Dick Cheney, this article may confirm your feelings. And as long as I'm Cheney-bashing, try this: "...had today's plan been enacted last year. Vice President Dick Cheney would have saved $326,555 on 2001 taxable income of $4.3 million, according to Bloomberg." That's from an analysis of the Bush plan in the NYT.

Once again, the Administration wants to hide what it's doing, this time with the Homeland Security department. Fortunately, a federal judge thinks it can't do that, although an appeal is likely. In other Homeland Security news, it now has the responsibility for improving cybersecurity, but apparently at the expense of privacy (again).

If you want an enlightening experience, go to Blogrolling and do a search to see who's linking to you. You may be surprised to discover a few sites you aren't in the habit of visiting. I know I was. Hey, people, if you drop by, say hello!

I heard that the tax break for the average citizen would be about 42 bucks....
With the current price of gasoline, that money will fill my gas tank twice...
