#7025: What's the point??

Mrs. Fungus wants a banana cake for Valentine's Day. You can't just buy a banana cake mix from the supermarket. So I found a recipe, and it calls for (among other things) 3/4 cup of buttermilk.

All I could find is reduced fat buttermilk, to which I say, "What's the point of that?"

Modern corporate management, and why Butt-edge-edge is a useless git.

There needs to be one change made to this assertion:
What’s important to know about the progressive tax proposal is that (1) currently, there are no tax hikes proposed for anyone making net incomes of $250,000 and below, and that (2) those with net incomes of $750,000 or more would be hit with a massive 60 percent income tax hike.
And that is to add the phrase "not right away" at the end of (1).

Because if Pritzger gets his progressive tax system, everyone's taxes WILL go up. Anyone who is a net payor of income tax in Illinois will, sooner or later, see his tax rate rise precipitously.

Of course, since it's election season, TV is awash with lying Democrat ads.

Had a pre-arranged day off today to run errands, but after running them I came home and ran the snowblower (started on first pull!) and salted the driveway. Now I'm all sleepy.

Could be worse, though.

    Had another opportunity today to play Pat Metheney's "Spring Ain't Here", because it snowed for most of the morning. But yeah, "global warming"…


    Some fatuous pinhead on the radio said that Chicago was ready for "looting and other forms of protest". But you know what? It's fine. We no longer…

  • #7605: I don't even need lettuce any longer

    See, the tacos I make at home blow away any tacos I've ever had anywhere else. Lettuce used to be necessary, but now it just gets in the way, so I…
