Taxes, Axes, and Abraxes

Tomorrow is Tax Day 2007. Your income tax return, or an extension thereof, has to be postmarked by midnight tomorrow night.

We got a break this year because April 15th fell on a Sunday...and Monday is the Washington, D.C. observation of Emmancipation Day.
Curious, with all the Black vs White tension present lately, that the entire nation wouldn't observe such a momentous anniversary.
Might be good for the national psyche.

Our good friend, Dr. Marty Groeth, passed along a couple of chiastic sayings about the government agency everyone loves to hate:

"A fine is a tax for doing bad; a tax is a fine for doing good..." and,
"They’ve got what it takes to take what you’ve got."

The next movie from Michael Moore will be called “Sicko.”
No, it’s not his autobiography.
The film is a visual record of a trip Moore made to Cuba for healthcare for first-responders to the Twin Towers collapses, who are now suffering from various diseases triggered by working the collapse site.

Moore’s aim is to embarrass President George Bush by showing Communist leader Fidel Castro’s social healthcare system is superior to the US.
The film truly is sick-o.

WalMart is back on top of the Forbes list of Top 500 Companies, edging out Exxon-Mobil and General Motors, which are ranked 2nd and 3rd. WalMart racked up $350 billion in sales and $11 billion in profits last year.

No Congressional investigation??
