An Open Letter to the President

Dear President Obama, I just filed my federal income taxes and it seems as though the Sneeds owe you some money. If you've had time to check your email this morning you might have noticed our return. It would be very helpful if you and the fine members of Congress could pass the stimulus bill asap and send us our $1000 tax bonanza before April 15th. Better yet, could you check to see if the $600 or so that we owe you can just be deducted from the $1000 coming our way? It would really streamline things all around. You can just send us the balance or direct deposit it in our account (I included the bank account number, keep it under your hat). As always, our best to you and yours. Merle Wayne Sneed p.s. Any news on the dog adoption? Things in this blog represented to be fact, may or may not actually be true. The writer is frequently wrong, sometimes just full of it, but always judgmental and cranky

I am getting a voucher from the State of California, I wonder if I can use it as legal tender?

Whoops. Sorry for the double-clickie there.

Hey, I guess we're one of the few who pay taxes. And it's a pox upon us. Guess anyone in an exalted position gets a pass. Just pass me my shovel, so I can keep digging.

I don't mind taxes (I believe in the whole social contract thing and how government has a responsibility to it's citizens) but what I would like is more could control how the government spends our tax money....(for instance, I definitely can not get behind money being spent to fund invasions but I can get behind the idea of the government helping insure that every person in the u.s. has access to quality health care and can drive across a bridge without falling into a river)

oh, there is a little something for you at the mouse today!

thanks for brightening up our world with mws

Your poem made me so sad. It's beautiful though, and so powerful. Wow. Thank you so much for publishing it.

I hope you will receive a personal response from Pres. Obama ... or at least the money, asap.

If you should hear from the president, let me know. I'm still waiting for my personal invitation to the White House...
