Rollin' Like Sisyphus

Death And The Other Thing

No silver linings for you.

No silver linings for you.

It’s Tax Day, Americans!
Fill out those totally voluntary forms doing all of Uncle Sam’s work for him with regard to whether you and yours have been paying your Fair Share.
Patriotism demands it.
But don’t worry, they’ll throw you back a trifle so it seems like you’re winning in the deal — just enough to know you’re still alive and hungry enough to keep working.
Anyway.
This seems weird:

The problem is that laying people off and shuttering stores two months after a celebrated wage hike initiative doesn’t inspire much confidence and could turn into a PR issue, but one thing you could do is get creative, and while we’re not plumbers, we do find it curious that five geographically distinct WalMart stores have been closed in the past week for “ongoing plumbing issues that will require extensive repairs.”

So we’re shooting just about par, then.

    Urhm, but… five 1964 silver quarters are worth… about that today. No, I get the point. But the last time I saw that post, I did a little digging. Now, if they would stop jacking the silver (and more gold) market, I think the favor would go to modern pay. Not really awake today, but… yeah… I think so.

    I don’t mean to say money equals wealth, and pay is good versus creating wealth, lots of problems. This just isn’t one of them. Fun for scaring the sheep, but a poor parlor trick, if you ask me. Honestly, though, I don’t think sheep care. They will, after all, inherit the earth. :p
