Here is an idea for solving the deficit, if you buy $1,000 in food and store it for 10 years till its worth $5,000 before you eat it, or you get an 80% discount, then should you not have to pay at least 15% investment tax on your $4,000 gain ? I once got a $5,000 rebate on a car only to find out when I signed the contract I owed 8 3/4% tax on that $5,000 rebate - what a surprise that was for an extra $450.
Lets TAX the Doomsday PREPPERS !!
Come on.... I'm just having a little fun with you !!
Go and check with H&R to see if this legal to save this way.
I just had to do this little rant because today I was assaulted by an 81 year old Portuguese grandma while shopping for food. As I was at the check out line with my full cart, I noticed a nice grandma get in line behind me and I asked her if she would like to go ahead, since she only had a few Items ?
Without saying a work of thanks she jumped right in and gave me a very strange look why I was buying so many of the same item ? So jokingly I said to her, I was stocking up because if I was lucky to reached her age "she looked like 90+" and we depleted social security for us, at least I would not starve due to lack of food.
YOUR-SUCH-A-BULLSHITTER blurted out of her mouth, OMG I was in shock.
Next she said I must be Irish !!
I work with contractors all day and YOUR-SUCH-A-BULLSHITTER came out again !!
She just went on and on and on and on!! I asked her if she remembered 1979 under Jimmy Carter where you could buy a 30 year T-Bill non callable for 15% interest ? I asked her where can you get that deal today? I never buy those she said- ignoring my question.
Then she ranted and raved about how tight she was with her money, how she had $1.5 million in investments, even saying she had just spent $20k on a vacation for herself. After she left, she came back again and said she was Portuguese and she was known as xxxxxxxxx ? I did not understand the word. The tone of her voice however sounded like it was a special slang name for a Tight-ASS-Portuguese grandma loaded with money.
Next time I see her, I will have my pepper spray ready, to keep her away !!
The clerk said she is always like that.
