Oh, so you're making tens of millions a year? I didn't realize you were so wealthy. Neither you, nor anyone you know will be in that tax bracket, ever. That tax rate should be for the people who "work" a few days a month, inherited their money, and play the stock markets like some kind of game. Wow...

We ALREADY have working flat tax systems all over the place. Although the exact rate varies from one jurisdiction to another, within the same city the owner of a $50k single-wide on a tiny lot pays exactly the same PERCENTAGE as the guy who owns a $10m mini-mansion on 5 acres. When I go buy a candy ...

A 70% tax rate is idiotic, Marxist, redistribution-of-wealth bullshit. Only someone who had NO dreams of ever making more than subsistence wages would even think of suggesting it. Keep your hands out of MY pockets! Fortunately, my business is international and I already have facilities, partnerships...

I haven't had ANY faith in the government or the economy since Nixon took us off the gold standard in the 70's so I've tried to live by a few basic survival rules: 1) - NEVER pawn or sell your tools 2) - NEVER commit to spending more than 25% of your income on housing. Don't get a bigger house and t...

If so, I have to believe that it didn't count for much until recently. 20 years ago my credit score was "negative one billion - shoot on sight" and I didn't have a problem getting cheap insurance.

If you can't afford a hand-made boutique amp, look around for an old (like 30 years +) and possibly broken but reasonably-high-end amp that you can have rebuilt and hot-rodded by a local tube guy. Big fenders (twin, super, etc), Ampeg, Marshall, Vox. Most of the time, it's the output transformer tha...

I understand that your credit score now affects your insurance rates too. Don't ask me how it could possibly be relevant. My scores are 750 to 800 but I haven't had to fill out a job application in over 15 years and since I'm self-employed, I'm hoping to never have to fill one out again. Not sure I ...

It's no secret that they run the meth business in the northern counties. They also handle a lot of stolen vehicles. You don't want to attract their attention, especially around Granite Falls.

I'd love to study the thought processes of a company owner who got out of bed one day and said "Hey, let's buy a quarter-million-dollar semi truck, load it up with three bucks worth of complete shit equipment from Carvin and Ashley, and call ourselves a commercial audio company" :)

The current crop of "popular musicians" is complete shit, but that's really nothing new. It's been that way for decades. The vast majority of the do-wop and girl-groups of the 50's and 60's were "producer's projects" manufactured and developed by the likes of Phil Spector and Barry Gordy "Real" musi...

It's definitely solvent based. It gelled up a bit, if I remember correctly, so there's other things in there too. I think it was just called paint stripper. It's pretty much just Crystal Drano in gel form. (lye - caustic soda) Nasty shit, but it's water-soluble so it cleans up easy. I'm a big fan o...

I second the Palomino. Unfortunately, the Satin Saddle (world's greatest strip club name) next door is now a sports bar, but there's an old-skool casino right across the street if you get the gamblin' fever afterwards.

Looks like a foot of snow is on the way in the next 24 hours, with a brief interlude of ice chunks falling from the sky around noon Sunday, (a.k.a. sleet) followed with another lovely blanket of snow to hide the thick layer of ice on everything.

Dammit! I spoke too soon. Tomorrow is garbage day so I have to drag the can down to the curb. Unfortunately, that's about 100 yards down a 45 degree ice-covered incline.
