From Argus Hamilton:

The IRS hired more agents to collect all they can from taxpayers Friday. The tax form raises questions. When L.A. residents get to the question asking if you are a farmer, they want to know if the IRS and DEA share information or if it’s more like the FBI and the CIA.


The Rolling Stones announced Tuesday they will tour the U.S. this summer beginning in Los Angeles in May. The group is now touring in its sixth decade. There are still drugs available for their friends in the dressing room, but now there’s a fifty dollar co-pay.


 President Obama proposed a budget Tuesday that lowers the cost-of-living increases for seniors and doubles the federal tax on cigarettes. It doesn’t add up at all. If there is not enough money for Social Security, he shouldn’t be encouraging people to quit smoking.


 The U.S. Postal Service backed down from its threat to end Saturday postal delivery if they don’t get more money. The Postal Service lost sixteen billion dollars last year. This is why you should have your tax refund direct-deposited and not delivered by U.S. mail.


From Jay Leno:

North Korean officials reportedly are planning a cyber attack on the U.S. in an effort to bring our economy to a halt. Nice try guys. You’re five years too late.
