The tulips have all stayed underground this spring in Minnesota, due to repeat layers of snow and cold. But in spite of a dreary outlook through double-paned windows, I’m sure the sun
will show up eventually – whether or not some little red-headed juvenile delinquent stands in the street and shouts the words, “the sun will come out… tomorrow. Bet your bottom dollar that tomorrow…” blah, blah, blah.
As much as government is spending lately, all of our bottom dollars have already been bet. Today we generously dole out our precious, hard-earned dollars to shore up the lavish spending of our dear elected officials. Because if we don’t, they will come after us with the
long arm of the law and beat us with a big stick. And of course, we all want to be law-abiding citizens – whether or not Congress does the same. You know what Mom would say, “just because the hoodlums up on capital hill don’t play fair, doesn’t mean you have to cheat.”
So happy electronic tax filing day and may the sun come out for you tomorrow!
