Well, it’s tax day again and I just thought I’d remind those of us who are retired and working, that  while we are  counting our pennies and deductions before the dreaded deadline, there are entities of our society that would like to be treated as though human but not suffering any of the duties of taxes.

A few weeks ago, Senator Bernie Sanders released a list of the ten worst companies for paying their taxes.  You sorta knew that Exxon Mobil would be there as number one, but check out some of the other names.


Favorite Quote

My favorite quote today, is from a story in the New York Daily News. It is from Senator Hillary Clinton who was stumping in Florida for Senator Barack Obama:

Clinton argued that returning Republicans to the White House “is like asking the iceberg to save the Titanic.”
