Bill Maher Insults Pope & Attack America's Catholics,
Operation, Income Taxes, Interest Rates, Kittens

1. The more you work, the more you’re penalized, the more you're screwed. Why can't we poor folks get ahead?! And how in the world do the rich get richer?!

While working on my taxes, I tried everything humanly possible to lower the outrageous amount I had to pay the IRS, but to no avail. It seems like the number 8 was my unlucky number this year, because I had to pay $8,878.00. Never in my life have I been so broke! It’s impossible to cut corners anymore, because the corners have become a giant hallway!

Because of the ever growing expense of income taxes, property taxes, gasoline, food, and vet bills, I’ve been forced not only to work at my full time job, but to start creating more internet domains which produce more money for me than my full time job. My social life has been NADA - NILTCH, because after I get home from work, I start working on the computer stuff. It’s nothing new that I go to bed no earlier than 1 or 2 in the morning. I’m pretty close to finishing that thing that required I learn c++, and I’ve been working on a FAMILY FRIENDLY Spanish domain I bought a few years ago, but never did anything with it. I’ve also bought three more Spanish domains and hope to start working on them just as soon as I’m finished with the one I’m doing now which has required I create lots of new graphics for it. I understand that most of you don’t understand Spanish, which when spoken correctly, is the most beautiful and romantic language in the world! I’ll post the link here when I’m finished so you can surf it.

2. Thank God my brother finally found a job, which means that my other brothers, a cousin and I won’t have to make his payment on the house in Oceanside, CA. There’s some bad news for us though. Since it’s an adjustable rate, the interest rate went from 6 1/4% up to 10.4%, which means we have to pay approximately $1,600 per month more. Banks aren’t refinancing unless you have about $36,000 in a savings account, which we do not! It gets even worse, because we have another house rented in Costa Mesa.

What it all comes down to is, that we’re in danger of losing one of the houses! Let’s see what happens.

3. My little Jewely had an operation on the 12th of this month. She had a tumor on her one of her boobies. Poodles are very susceptible to breast cancer, especially if they haven’t ever had puppies and haven’t been spayed. I went ahead and told my vet to spay her if that was the case.

The white cat that I have never been able to trap with my trapper to have her spayed, had kittens again!! She is a very strange cat. I never told you this before, but she had some more kittens about 6 months ago, and she killed them all! When they were a little bigger, she’d take them to God knows where, never to be seen again! So what Grandpa and I will do this time is keep a watchful eye on the kittens, and when their big enough to be fed with a dropper, we’ll bring them inside to take care of them ourselves. I THINK I now have about 38 cats outside!!

4. I’M SO TOUCHED! There have been a few who have sent me a LJ Nudge to start posting. Another thing, because I’ve been so overwhelmed with work this year, I’ve been so RUDE for not thanking so many of you who sent me real life gifts for Valentine’s Day! I’ve been planning on posting the pictures of these gifts, and I WILL DO SO very soon, and please expect a little something from me in your snail mail soon. I’ll let you know when I’ve sent it. I also want to thank those who sent me a LJ card for Valentine’s Day. Expect a card from me, too, VERY SOON!

5. Sunday Mass with Pope Benedict XVI - I’ve recorded EVERYTHING about our beloved Pope Benedict XVI stay in the U.S.A. In a matter of just a week, I’ve grown to love him just as much as I loved Pope John Paul II.

As for Bill Maher, may the beast rot in hell for saying such blasphemous things about this holy man! I DISPISE YOU Bill Maher!

Glad to be back, too, at least for a little while.
Hugs! :o)

And how in the world do the rich get richer?!

They lend money they don't have, speculate on sure things (precious metal and land values almost always go up in the long-term), and then are smart enough to put it all into tax havens. I hope you used the absurd deductions for gambling. :)

I understand that most of you don’t understand Spanish, which when spoken correctly, is the most beautiful and romantic language in the world!

The music should be better, then.

I come from Irish Protestants, but have a benign view of Catholics and the Pope. I'm even a little saddened to see their parochial schools close.

Yeah... We're definitely in a recession...

*hugs 'n' love*

We sure are, and it's going to get worse, so we all better really start saving our pennies!

love and hugs back!

While I don't agree with Maher's stance on bashing Catholicism and people who believe in God, I will say (and I am a Catholic) that he is dead on about this Pope who has proven to be a tyrant for gays and others who don't fit his warped view as God's chosen people.

How I miss John Paul II.
Apr. 21st, 2008 01:08 am (UTC)
I had no idea Pope Benedict bashed gays...
I also miss him Sweety Pie. John Paul was one of a kind, and sadly, we'll never have another one like him again.

I had no idea Pope Benedict bashed gays. Hopefully he'll see one day that all humans are Gods creation!

Hopefully you took as many deductions as you were ALLOWED, if not due. Like listing your car on your schedule C, taking a home office deduction, writing off a lot of your gas and maintainance, etc.. I know you can take off all of your Internet and phone expenses being that you are an internet developer. There are so many deductions that people miss due to the complex nature of our tax laws, forms, and formulations. Pity that we don't have a simplified tax system. :/
Apr. 21st, 2008 05:47 am (UTC)
Not only did I list all the things you mentioned, but my car insurance, car repairs, car rentals for trips, and airplane fares. I deducted a percentage from my computer room, utilities, pet groomer and pet supplies, 2nd hand clothing and dust collectors which I ended up taking to Goodwill for another tax deduction. I didn't add cleaning items because I forgot to save those receipts.

I spent quite a lot of money last year on house repairs, but they don't take those anymore.

Yes, it sure is a pity they don't come up with something more simplified. I did the long form and I had papers coming out of my ears! Oh, and I thought my eyes would remain cross eyed forever! :o)

Sure hope you did well with yours!
Apr. 21st, 2008 09:29 am (UTC)
Sorry you had to pay so much I wish I could help you,
Sounds like your domains will be great you do a good job!

I am so glad your Brother found a job I know how worried you where about it and ya them adjustable rates are bad news hope every thing works out all right sorry about your little Jewely glad every thing turned out ok!

And that darn cat she has caused you nothing but trouble to bad you did not get her fixed I read once that cats will do that when there are to many and you have to many cats my friend you need to find a way to stop doing this to your self.
And the pope no comment I do not want to go to Hell! =o) lol
Apr. 25th, 2008 04:04 pm (UTC)
I'm still sick about having had to pay so much, but thank God I had more or less an idea, so I saved a little each month in order to pay these outrageous taxes.

Yes, I, as well as the others, are very happy that he found a job again.

Jewely is doing great after her operation. She sends you lots of love barks! :o)

I'll make a post about that darn female cat soon!

You can thank the Democrats and their "progressive" tax system wherein one who makes more pays a higher percentage of one's income in tax.

Apr. 21st, 2008 02:57 pm (UTC)
Um, what Democrat authored tax legislation has been passed recently for you to make that assessment? Why would she be thanking the Democrats, since they haven't been able to fight Bush's veto on anything that wasn't a bi-partisan bill. And last I remeber there's little bi-partisanship when it comes to taxes.

How do the Rich get Richer?
They understand the law, and they know the difference between money and fiat currency.

Re: How do the Rich get Richer?
Can't forget munincipal bonds and capital gains. If you play your cards right (I never can, grr), you can make a mint doing that with taxes at a lower rate than the standard tax rates.

Bill Maher is on record as being an atheist who hates religion: all organized religions. He has made fun of all the major religions. I have heard him make cracks about Jews, Muslims, Christians, Hindus, Pagans/Wiccans and even Buddhist. The only religion he holds sacred is his own: atheism.

But he does have a point. This Pope had a major role in the church's cover up of the child molestation cases by priest. http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2005/apr/24/children.childprotection
