If You’re Happy and You Know It . . .

Current mood: creative, ecstatic

I was looking through the blog of former Albuquerque Mayor Jim Baca, and found this gem

I just completed my yearly dance with Turbo Tax.  I am getting money back this year because of credits for installing three kilowatts of Solar Voltaic Panels on my roof.  Even after that we would not have owed any additional taxes to the Feds or the State other than what was withheld.  This is wrong. 

We did not pay enough income taxes.  Yes, I really feel that way.  You could put our annual income last year in the upper middle class and we should  have paid more in taxes but the congress and state legislature have no ‘huevos’ to do the right thing and rescind bush’s and the state’s income tax breaks.

If anything, it reminds me of a comment by a NM Green Party member back in the 1990’s — “I was audited last year, and not only were the auditors pleasant and professional, but they were right.”

Of course, no one in Libertarian ranks (or even amongst the libertarian-leaning Republicans) is stopping Baca or anyone else from sending MORE cash into the tax-collecting agencies. Never mind that if Mr. Baca and his cohorts spent as much time directly helping via private charity those they profess to care so much about, America wouldn’t have nearly as many people having economy-related troubles.

That, and he’s still got problems with us the Great Unwashed carrying self-defense tools — see here:

The legislature actually passed on to the Governor the bill allowing concealed weapons in liquor establishments that serve food.  As a former State Liquor Director in the 1980s I have to say this is one of the stupider things I have ever seen our lawmakers pull off.  Of course I hope the current head of the liquor department will urge the Governor not to sign this act.  Oh, the legislature still does not allow concealed weapons in the State Capitol Building where they work.  And the Governor has armed body guards in case someone comes into his office packing heat under their jacket.

And I thought that I had set him straight back then in 2001. Not that it mattered much for his political career — he still lost his bid for re-election for Mayor to Slick Marty Chavez.

If you’re happy and you know it, shake your chains
If you’re happy and you know it, shake your chains
If you’re happy and you know it and you really want to show it
If you’re happy and you know it, shake your chains
