other-stuff: underthemountainbunker: 1986 effective tax rate on the wealthy: 33.1% 2008 effective tax rate on the wealthy: 23.3% Difference on the federal debt over the past 18 years: $1.7 trillion less if ETR had continued to be paid at 1986 rates. Seems pretty simple to understand. According to the Internal Revenue Service, in 2008, those in the top 1 percent of the income distribution,...
erinmargrethe replied to your post: Vacation has begun. Have fun! Try not to look at Eric and see John Goodman in The Big Lebowski. Starting tomorrow I will start referring to Skot as ‘Donny’ with the entire goal being to get Eric to tell him to shut up.
Vacation has begun.
Well, as soon as I’m out of technologies reach tomorrow.

dresspants replied to your photo: Crack Kills. PHOTOBUMB! Your comment cracks me up.
I am already looking forward to my vacation next week. You can stop doing things to make me look even more longingly towards leaving you.
Fill in long rant about the things that I am not happy about professionally.

monkeyfrog replied to your photo: In case you were wondering, dealing with it isn’t… But it’s much sexier. I can see all the boobs.
I luv you FIVE-ever
thums up This is my new call into the wilds of the night.
My greatest comfort
Is knowing that in 7 days I’ll be on my way to Kings Canyon with good shoes and a bacon pack. That and Ross needs me to punch Erin in the Dick.
I got to hang out briefly with Erin tonight. Pesky thing decided that living in Australia was way neater than the California’s Central Valley.
Crazy Rambling Message Time.
Leave your number in my ask box and I’ll leave you a rambling voice mail!
In the parking lot at work I find questions. Today a square yellow lego. Last week horse tracks. Last month a hypodermic needle in a 3oz bottle of Grey Goose.

When Buffett receives dividends and capital gains, it is true that he pays “only” 15 percent of that money on his tax return. But dividends and capital gains are both forms of double taxation. So if he wants honest effective tax rate numbers, he needs to show the 35 percent corporate tax rate. Moreover, as I noted in a previous post, Buffett completely ignores the impact of the death tax, which...
I watch Man Vs Wild and I hate Bear Grylls
If I were to write a synopsis for the show. A man is left in the wilderness to survive. When encountering difficult or dangerous situations he chooses the most dangerous way to solve the problem instead of one of the hundred or more options a rational person should choose in this type of situation. I can’t help but blame Bear a little for the stupidity deaths that occur in nature. He makes...
It’s been a deadly year in Yosemite National Park. I may be more aware of it than most because of my proximity to the park as well as my interest and love of the outdoors. The thing that has bothered me most as I have read the news stories about these tragedies is the call for more regulation and protections for people in the park. Parents and families of those that have died have accused...
in the fade: themesong: a music meme →
inthefade: Lisa and I were bored so we put our boredom to good use and came up with a new music meme thing! Music meme things have come and gone (and some are still around) and we love them because those of us who post a lot of music like to have a cue or a prod or something to write about to go… Awesome
How can you expect me to be a happy camper?
After all, I’m not even camping.
No exodus for me.
They must have crossed the red sea because I can’t find the internet.

No one is any one thing. To paint with a broad brush and lump everyone in to categories and then state that because they are part of this group then they also belong to that group. I am a college educated, Caucasian heterosexual male who believes in God, is married, has children, works as a mid-level manager for a large American company with international influence and owns a firearm. From...
They Might be Giants: The Lady and the Tiger This song makes me think of Football Marching Band and brass sections grooving out. I enjoy this song. Do you have laser beams emitting from your eyes?
The beauty of a song is the way in which all it’s parts work together for that one perfectly positioned note that makes you want to cry because it’s placement is so obvious yet you know you never would have put it there.
goestoeleven: I frequently type replies to posts and then click “cancel” instead of posting them, out of the fear that people won’t take them the right way or that I don’t know the person well enough to joke with them like that. yup
Katie is away this evening learning how to etch glass so I have been left alone with children (don’t worry, they’re both still alive). J went outside to play wearing Lightning McQueen underwear and his bug boots (rubber boots). Moments later I heard crying and rushed to see what had happened. I saw him standing there, hunched down in the upright fetal position crying. Me: J, whats the...
15 Days and Gear
15 days from now I’ll begin my annual week long trip into the back country. I’ve only been back into backpacking for about 5 years now and each year I’ve purchased a little more gear and each year I’ve said that I’m finally done. I have everything that I would need. Last winter it snowed. A Lot. I will be crossing the Sierras from Roads End in Kings Canyon National...
Big Trouble in Little China is on the tv
I wonder if people use Clint interchangeably.
From what I gather we’re both kinda awesome and I read things people say about Clint and it sounds like something I might do but definitely didn’t. You people with relatively common names….how do you do it? I get confused enough as it is.
Sex-In as much detail as is necessary.

Katie: what are you watching?
Me: Blue Velvet.
Katie: what's it about?
Me: It's a David Lynch Movie
Me: Nobody knows what it's about.
Thanks Natalie for reminding me to do this. My girl lost her second tooth. Katie called me around mid day when I was a ball of nerves because an unnamed government agency was doing a random inspection. She told me that G had lost her second tooth. G cried a little bit but then got really excited because it was Monday and the girl tooth fairy works on Mondays. Katie asked me what this meant and...
