Taxes charged to businesses are hidden taxes – legislators like this because it hides from you, the consumer, the real tax burden you bear. If this corporate source of tax revenue were eliminated and all government provided services remained the same, the individual tax rate would go up. And the hidden tax would be exposed to you. Legislators would not like to answer for that, either. So, the charade continues.

    I observe we spend a great deal of time talking about eliminating or regulating this or that device. In hindsight, the genie humankind let slip out of the bottle is electricity. Our forefathers in the not-so-distant past let this one out without much thought because early on it looked so innocent. Now, it controls us more than we control it.

    So now leashed we walk together,
    I seek squirrels, cats, perhaps a feather,
    These are my morning joys.

    I continue to call out bullies – that is my “cause.” I am convinced bullies are of no particular stripe. They are found in all walks of life and political affiliations.

    This just may be the kind of problem I could get behind legislation to fix, or if that doesn’t work, I say, look for the union label. I firmly believe employers have to be given as unfettered an environment as possible in order to operate. However, there are times when a line must be drawn – and this may be one of them.

    Pew Research (Feb. 2017) says that the share of Americans who are married is at its lowest level since 1920: “Half of Americans age 18 and over were married in 2015, compared with 72 percent in 1960.

    A supermarket chain in Britain is trying out a method of payment that merely reads your fingerprints – no cards, no implants, no nothing – just you. An article I read this week says flying motorcycles are less than three years away, with flying cars following shortly after this. The difference between now and the promises of the 1960s on this front is the technology that is driving everything: computers and their software.

    You might have noticed that those most vocal about the possibilities of global warming (or climate change, if you prefer) are the coastal folks who fear rising sea levels harming their charming bungalow.

    In the winter, when there was not much else to do, we logged the large hill on the McNary Farm. This hill runs parallel to Barrett Mill Road.

    The overall message here, though, is simple. Only two people on this list have been elected by the voters – Huey Long and Donald Trump. For the others, we have to wonder why they have chosen to spend their money telling us how to think.
