Unique Questions To Ask Your Local IRS Agents During An Audit

By Credo, published on Feb 6, 2008

...subconsciously consider taxes and that dreaded day of the income tax audit. Every aspect of our lives is controlled by taxes, it is the determining factor which governs our shopping habits, plus it regulates all common practices, from how much you can spend on a car or a house to the kind of education you could afford for your children. Given what is now discovered about our taxing system people have begun to reassess their relationship to government and its business rituals. It is believed that Americans are the most liberated people in the modern world, but the truth appears somewhat... (more)

Don't Disrupt My Routine

By Dan Maxwell, published on Feb 6, 2008

... saddled up, glazed over so as to make sure I don’t get noticed by the professor (which is a science/essay topic on its own), and I have downright enjoyed my desk in the back row next to the window with Pauline. But, today in an effort to be studious and in so many words "care" about my education, I took a few minutes before class to print out some work I had done to hand in. So today I got to this class with only about three minuets to spare (instead of the previously mentioned ten), and what do I find? Some jackass has swiped my oasis by the window… furthermore; it’s... (more)

The Insidious Nature Of Fear

By V, published on Jan 28, 2008

... You save up for a vacation and that is the way in which you see the world and how you come to deserve it. Travel to me is a necessity. It is a right of passage (and I don’t mean Spring Break in Cancun). Traveling, the idea of making your own way in a foreign country is a crucial part of your education and evolution as a person. And it’s fun.

2. Someone Else Will Take My Job

With only 2 weeks paid holiday a year and a competitive job market, I can see how employees get nervous about taking time out to travel. But you can consider taking 2 or 6 months or a year off to go on ... (more)

Even Trainwrecks Have Squealing Breaks

By C. Reagan, published on Jan 26, 2008

Almost ten years ago, a blond, petite doe eyed girl sauntered into the public eye. She swung her hips and chewed her pencil, waiting for the school bell to free her from her daunting Catholic education and allow her to change into a sports bra and tell us "my loneliness is killing me".

She just wanted to dance.

Fast forward to today, when that same schoolgirl vixen has morphed into a troubled young mother, a tabloid cover girl and an obsession to many. Everywhere you look, news casters, bloggers and journalists are debating "What happened to Britney?". Meanwhile, we watch... (more)

Prison Economy: Your Entitlement To Time In A Cell

By Crowings, published on Jan 24, 2008

...toward a deeply entrenched police state. In fact that GAO report was published in the middle of the very week during which the "largest criminal-sweep in the nation's history," Operation FALCON, occurred, in April 2005. A look at the lovely 'Death and Taxes Map' provides a graphic education in the proportion of allocations devoted to both domestic and foreign aspects of what might possibly fit under that broad cloak of 'Crime and Punishment' in terms of cost and the federal budget. But I'll start with the bit about alien crime.

As examples of the pernicious alien... (more)

Do You Have A Dream?

By Dr. Traci Vujicich, published on Jan 21, 2008

...why? He says, “I want to leave the world a better place for me having been in it.”

So, what’s your dream? If you had a magic wand (and you do, by the way, it’s called your mind) if you had a magic wand, what would you change? Hunger? Poverty? The environment? Education? Every single person listening to this cares about SOMETHING. The key to personal success is to connect your goals to a bigger cause. A bigger dream. What happens then is that it takes on a life of its own. You get swept up into it, and suddenly, you’ve got more energy, more passion,... (more)

Broowaha Burlesque

By V, published on Dec 21, 2007

... hand and pulls up the stool beside me. His opening words are, "Wow, this is seedy." He too orders a Merlot. With a liitle time before the show begins, we cover all manner of subjects from the standard what-do-you-do-where-did-you-grow-up fare to our views on society, talk of family, travels, education, culture etc, punctuated by random bursts of fake smoke. He is as he seemed to me before meeting him in person. He's 'normal, interesting, thoughtful, nice, funny (he outright lied to me in fact, a harmless lie which was, in itself hilarious) and sincere. I wonder if I appeared as he... (more)

File Under: Good Vibes

By Gary Schwind, published on Dec 19, 2007

... have the opportunity to do this and I know there are people out there that for whatever reason, they can’t. If I was in a position where I could spread the word, I’d probably do something like that. A friend of ours had a spinal injury. He used to surf a lot. Now he does a lot of education, telling people that he’s trying to raise money for people with spinal injuries. That’s something real. Whatever you read in People Magazine or on the news, it’s so spoon-fed. People want you to think a certain way, they want you to do certain things. They want you to buy ... (more)

For A Mother's Love

By Credo, published on Dec 12, 2007

...child as our children find ways to rebel against the social structure that we have indirectly adopted. We find our children in the streets at night, searching for ways to disrupt, or act out of character with civilized nature and yet we blame them, we blame their parents or their lack of education; we never seem to blame the system for anything that they have systematically had a hand in creating. While everybody is out working or in jail no one is raising the future, while everyone is so concerned about their careers no one is concerned about the future of the world. When your career ... (more)

My Virtual Life

By Ivan Homeless, published on Dec 12, 2007

... all knocked up and needed some friends to lean on. Enter the So Cal AP Families support group. This is a collection of mostly moms whose children range from almost born to starting college. These moms are dedicated to attachment parenting, breastfeeding, homeschooling, vaccination research and education, co-sleeping, baby wearing, cloth diapering or elimination communication, organic living, never letting a child just “cry it out” and home birthing. Some moms are entirely AP and some take the pieces they like and that work for them. When it comes to child rearing questions,... (more)
