    Default Tax Season

    Taxes suck. It really bothers me that I owe almost $10,000 in taxes. I'm self employed and didn't even crack the 50k mark this year, yet I have to pay so much in taxes. What pisses me off the most is knowing the government uses tax money for programs I don't believe in or flat out despise.

    Obama wants to pass a law that helps home owners who can't pay for their home. Some people might think this is a good idea, but where does it leave people like me? I can't afford to buy a house, so I never tried to purchase one. I knew my bills would be too much, and I was being responsible by not getting in over my head. So what's in it for me? Paying for someone else's mortgage.

    Thanks to TARP, I helped finance the failing banks. Did I get a bailout on my taxes? No.

    Thanks to the GM bailout, I helped finance a car company that's dead set on building SUVs. Did I get a new car in the deal? No.

    Instead I had to cancel my health insurance, move to a smaller apartment, and cut off any non-essential bills. I can't afford to fix my car, take my dog to the vet, or even go to the hospital if something happened.

    I'm screwed for being responsible.

    Q: who was the biggest douche that you have worked with?

    A: Eddie Van Halen hands down he threatened all the stage hands that if we wernt all pushed to the side when he got off stage that he would "bash our faces in"

    Now the new David-Lee-Roth-Van Halen album, “Tokyo Dome In Concert,” is available for purchase, and it’s super, super, super, super, super, super, crazy bad. - Doug Elfman
