                It’s a bizarre feeling, really.  Today would be, nominally, the birthday of my 2nd son, Keegan (at least legally).  He was born on February 29, 1984, Leap Day.  I was 29 years old and turned 30 the following July.  Keegan died in 2001 at the age of 17, almost 13 years ago.  Today would be his 30th birthday.  It seems odd to me.  I was almost 30 when he was born.  He would be 30 now, but in my brain, he is forever 17, since that is how old he was when he died.  I only had him with me for 17 years, but he stamped a major impression on my heart from the get-go, and it won’t ever fade.

*~*~*

                Keegan, I miss you.  Everyone who knew you or has heard of you misses you.  I know your spirit is around, but I miss talking with you, laughing with you, seeing you, hugging you, hearing you.  I continue to celebrate your life as you wished.  Tonight Roy and I went out to dinner for your February 28th birthday.  At midnight, we will release balloons to you, since that is the instant of your birthday.  On your March 1st birthday, I’m scheduled to be in Tahoe with your sister, Kara; your soon-to-be brother-in-law, Alex; your sister’s best friend and Maid-of-Honor-To-Be, Katrina; and your step-father, Roy.  Two of them never met you in this life … but they know you.  We have made sure of it, just as you have.  Hopefully, we will all be cake-tasting for Kara and Alex’s upcoming 4th of July wedding, knowing how much you’d have loved doing the same thing.  We’ll be going out to dinner after while up in Tahoe.  We’ll drink a toast to you and laugh and miss you still.  This is all assuming the weather holds and it’s not snowing over Echo Summit of course.  Be nice to us, Baby Boy … we want good weather!  LOL

                Happy birthday, 2nd Baby Boy and my most favorite middle child!

“Let me tell you how it will be.  There’s 1 for you, 19 for me, ‘cuz I’m the Tax Man.  Yeah, I’m the Tax Man.  Should 5% appear too small, be thankful I don’t take it all, ‘cuz I’m the Tax Man.  Yeah, I’m the Tax Man.  If you drive a car, I’ll tax the street.  If you try to sit, I’ll tax your seat.  If you get too cold, I’ll tax the heat.  If you take a walk, I’ll tax your feet.  Tax Man!  I’m the Tax Man.  Yeah, I’m the Tax Man.  Don’t ask me what I want it for if you don’t want to pay some more, ‘cuz I’m the Tax Man.  Yeah, I’m the Tax Man.  Now my advice for those who die (TAX MAN), declare the pennies on your eyes (TAX MAN), ‘cuz I’m the Tax Man.  Yeah, I’m the Tax Man, and you’re working for no one but me.  Tax Man!”  George Harrison

We dedicate this old classic Beatles song to BO, his family, his leeches, his fools, his cronies, and his thugs.

I wish I could say that we have “taxation with representation” but we no longer do, because the vast majority of the elected politicos have absolutely no concept of who they are supposed to represent … or what they represent … other than themselves and their gaping pocketbooks … so they tax anything that moves … or doesn’t move … and think that the citizenry is ok with that.  The citizenry is not.  The problem is … the vast majority of the citizenry has no ability to stop it or knowledge of how to stop it, and they have no energy left after paying for BO and his family of fools to go on vacation several times a month … while they wonder if they will *ever* have the chance to take a vacation … and they work till they drop as part of BO’s new “slave class” that is supposed to work and hand over all their very hard earned money.

“Should 5% appear too small, be thankful I don’t take it all, ‘cuz I’m the Tax Man.”

Roy and I are going on vacation the end of April … the first one we’ve been able to take in over FIVE YEARS.  However, we have fools in DC that think taking a vacation every month is ok … and that doing it lavishly at the expense of the taxpayer is acceptable.  Do they think that we all are able to do that?  Very few can take any vacations at all other than staying home and hoping to make ends meet, let alone even dream of one vacation a year … as opposed to one vacation a month.

“Don’t ask me what I want it for if you don’t want to pay some more, ‘cuz I’m the Tax Man.”

Roy and I have been hit with MASSIVE tax bills in the past few years due to several financial issues/setbacks that we encountered … that would pay for small vacations for us but are a drop in the bucket for the ungrateful and out-of-touch idiots that are currently occupying the White House.  We’d love to spend the money that we earn on us being able to take even a short vacation to Tahoe or Disneyland, let alone lavish vacations, rather than giving it to the political leeches taking opulent vacations and hosting wild birthday parties for Moochelle but not allowing the public in on tours of the White House.

We are curious.

What are they hiding in the White House?  What is it they are doing in there that they suddenly have closed “The People’s House” to the public?  It isn’t “Sequestration”, because they’re able to cover their wild lifestyle with tax money so they could cover tours of the White House with it also.

Curiouser and curiouser.

So … we get a bit worked up when they dip in our pocket so they can go on dream trips while we work ourselves to the bone so that we can owe more money than we did before.

“Yeah, I’m the Tax Man, and you’re working for no one but me.”

Guess again, Limousine Leftist Liberals that are living on the taxpayer dole.  You work for the taxpayer … not the other way around … and we, the taxpayers, find your lavish lifestyle selfish, arrogant, and downright abhorrent.
