I'm just curious

So, since the Proposal 1 (Michigan Medical Marijuana Act) and Proposal 2 (A proposal to amend the State Constitution to address human embryo and
human embryonic stem cell research in Michigan) vote here in Michigan didn't turn out the way I wanted it to, does that mean I can just refuse to pay my taxes until the government overturns the vote?

I mean, apparently there is a certain celebrity that feels that is the appropriate response to Proposition 8 in California. I imagine there will be a lot of "sheeple" on Hollyweird that will follow suit - especially since it seems to be the mission of many celebrities to consistently go against the morals of many Americans.

I wonder how long it will be before California overturns the amendment - you know those Hollywood dollars (or potential lack thereof) are going to be a huge motivator.

OH YEAH, and what's with the government giving AIG MORE money??? Apparently the whole "oh boy, the government just gave us a boat load of money, let's send our execs on a $400,000+ retreat" incident was not a lesson learned?

I think I just threw up a little in my mouth.

Yeah, it's all unbelievably ridiculous....all this, and so much more you didn't even mention!

A sad state of affairs.

if you want to get really technical, my husband will tell you that income tax is unconstitutional in the first place. I'm just sayin'

I hope you went and ate some halloween candy after the throw-up in your mouth incident.

funny story-- with Brad on this mission, we hardly get to talk (compared to when he is at camp) and he made time to tell me that Granholm is one of Obama's financial advisors... hmmm...

Actually, the IRS is the problem. However, I think we have to look at Christ's response in the New Testement when he was asked about a similar issue, and he said "Render unto Ceaser what is Ceaser".

Government isn't perfect, but it is God ordained, and He controls the heart of a ruler just like he controls the path of a river.

I believe I DID get a comment from your hubs, Amanda!!

Guess I must have struck a nerve?

Thanks, Brad, for taking a minute out of your precious time to leave a comment - it really means a LOT, since I know your "free" time is very limited right now!!
