Tax Poem

At first I thought this was funny...then I realized the awful truth of it. Be sure to read all the way to the end!

The Tax Poem
Tax his land,
Tax his bed,
Tax the table
At which he's fed.

Tax his tractor,
Tax his mule,
Teach him taxes
Are the rule.

Tax his work,
Tax his pay,
He works for peanuts

Tax his cow,
Tax his goat,
Tax his pants,
Tax his coat.

Tax his ties,
Tax his shirt,
Tax his work,
Tax his dirt.

Tax his tobacco,
Tax his drink,
Tax him if he
Tries to think.

Tax his cigars,
Tax his beers,
If he cries
Tax his tears.

T ax his car,
Tax his gas,
Find other ways
To tax his ass.

Tax all he has
Then let him know
That you won't be done
Till he has no dough.

When he screams and hollers,
Then tax him some more,
Tax him till
He's good and sore.

Then tax his coffin,
< align="left">Tax his grave,
Tax the sod in
Which he's laid.

Put these words
Upon his tomb,
"Taxes drove me to my doom..."

When he's gone,
Do not relax,
Its time to apply
The inheritance tax .

Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago, and our nation was the most prosperous in the world.

We had absolutely no national debt , had the largest middleclass in the world, and Mom stayed home to raise the kids.

What in the hell happened? Can you spell "politicians?"

I hope this goes around THE USA at least 100 times!!!!! YOU can help it get there!!!!

How did we let this happen???????

New TV Show for My Family...

Hey all, I've blogged over at Nice N' Naughty Authors today about a TV Show my son & I have found to watch. It’s not just any reality TV, it’s real TV LOL. Yeah okay, I think I grabbed that from some place. Sorry TV people.

The Exterminators,
Correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe they had Mike Rowe of Dirty Jobs come out and do a show with them.

These guys are AWESOME!! They’re not your typical pest control. The company’s name is Vex-Con, and it’s family run. They live in Louisiana.

They don’t believe in killing the animals they catch. Including mice and snakes, and they’re released into an environment where they can strive and survive.
Well, bees and wasps are different, kinda hard to have a controlled catch on those guys. But the outfit Billy wears will have you laughing your socks off!! Skull mask with a black feather boa wrapped around his neck (the bees don’t like it) and leather chaps & jacket.

Another, after seeing them, some people might go into that stereotypical roll. This should teach you people a lesson. DON’T judge a book by its cover!! Billy’s wife Mary was an Air Force Sergeant, and has 15 years of pest management. His Mom, Donnie is a cancer survivor, His Dad, Billy Sr., recently had a heart attack, and his brother Ricky is as crazy as Billy is. You truly have to love animals of all kinds to do what these folks do.

I have to say after watching, I don’t think I’ll be moving to Louisiana anytime soon, LOL. I’m not a bug person, and defiantly not an alligator or snake person. *Snort* yeah and I live in Florida…Am I crazy???? *Grins* But if I do, then I’ll know who to call when I’m running away screaming from some creepy crawly.

My son’s favorite part is in the shows beginning introduction, when Billy, has a snake and says “Ahhhh snake.” LOL. (He’s being sarcastic.)
But if you watch this week’s show coming up, that water moccasin almost gets free when he tries to put it in a container.

The clip I’m going to link you to, is where they’re trying to catch a five foot alligator, and it actually jumps right into the boat with them. Ah, yeah…no thanks guys, I’ll leave the alligator catching to you.

My Galleys

YAY!!!! I received my galley last night for Destined to Mate!!

I just have to go over and and send it back to my editor!!

I'm soooo excited!! I can't wait until DTM hits the bookstore!!

On another note...

I've been asked recently when the sequel to A Slave's Way Out is coming.

...Well, *scratches head* I have to finish it first. I've been so bogged down from the day job(s) that I haven't had a chance to sit and get my mojo on with it. And the's only a few chapters that I need to write, Grrrrr Argggg.

So I apologize to all my wonderful readers out there waiting for it!!

Thanks all and have a great day!!

The Devil Himself has taken 4.5 CHERRIES!!

Lilac at Whipped Cream has given TDH 4.5 Cherries!! WOOT!!

I was intrigued by this story from the very beginning and I longed to know more about these fascinating characters. Luca stole my heart with his insecurities and doubts. He was a perfect example of why people shouldn’t judge others based on their looks.

As for Chandra, I found her very likeable and thought she was very accepting especially once she learned about Luca and his life. They made a lovely pair as both taught each other about love, trust, and acceptance.I really enjoyed the author’s unique approach to a classic love story.

This wasn’t an ordinary boy-meets-girl story as it featured a creature that some might find hard to love, yet the author was able to humanize the beast in the story and make me, the reader, fall for him as well despite what some might consider imperfections.

I found the author’s use of an imperfect hero, at least when it comes to looks, refreshing and interesting.This was a very touching love story that I would definitely recommend to those looking for something a bit different.

In other good news...

I have finished the edits for Destined to Mate, Coming soon with The Wild Rose Press - Scarlet Line, and it's been sent off to a proof reader!!
I'm soooo excited!! This has been such a great end to a crappy week!!

I hope everyone out there has a great day and enjoys the last of the weekend!!

Super Whaaat?

Hey, I'm blogging over at Nice & Naughty Authors today. About the Superbowl, LOL. Yeah that's a joke.
Anyways, stop by to check out this neat little cartoon I posted, and here's a line or two, *Grins*

Ok, all you football fans out there. I'm sorry, but who's playing again?
How many of you are football fanatics? Or are you like me?

I dug this little cartoon up. I love this woman, and thought it was laughable. Hope you get a chuckle!!

Have a great day no matter what you're doing, and I hope you have a good time!!
