Yup, I'm covered, all right

Tax season always gives me pause. For example, I had to figure out how much my health insurance cost me for the just-past year, since it's now 100% deductible on Schedule C. Gulp. So just how much do I spend on insurance?

  • Health and Dental $2,821
  • Car $1,536
  • Life $610
  • Full 15% FICA & Medicare
Who the hell am I working for here?

Sooner or later, I'm sure, I'll be found out. The word will be out that I went around via Google to the various anti-Bush weblogs, and much like a busy little bee, deposited a comment in those weblogs that allow for such.

At one particular weblog I visited, the blogeuse was at the time in despair. Seemingly, indisputable files documenting Dumb'ya's misgovernance grow thicker and even more nauseating daily. Nonetheless, his lead in the polls increases. And so, Mr Timberlake, I asked myself a couple questions. What could be going on? What could be the explanation?

Well, here's some of the comment I left. "Nobody cares to admit that their country willfully elevated a nincompoop to head of state. And then, not too long after that, the nincompoop went on to suborn contravening the Geneva Convention.

That's enough to blow anybody's mind. It's sort'a like admitting tha'cher favorite aunt gets her jollies from 'communing' with alligators. Aaay, c'mon, that's the best way I know how to phrase it ... gimme a break. For all we know, the current chairman of the Federal Communications Commission checks up on your website DAILY."

And here's the permissible portion of the comment I left.

"Recently, Ted Koppel used his allotment of television time to swirl some sobriety into this country's awareness of Iraq. As the photos of American service personnel, who had been killed in Iraq, were being displayed, Mr Koppel recited their names. As best I can, in my own small way, I'm trying to emulate the man. And so, I'd like you to consider reading the text for a "state of the union" address that I believe is imperative for this country of ours. To get to it, all you need do is click on the below enclosed U.R.L

By the way, the proprietors of the website have provided a couple ways for you to leave your comments."
