Sub News and Tax Whining

For a good update on submarine news, you should check out The Sub Report, which updates every day. For example, you can find out there about the Tomahawk test launch that USS Minneapolis-St. Paul (SSN-708) just did, or about the newest Brazilian submarine. For the rest of this post here, you'll just get unfocused whining about taxes that shows a complete misunderstanding about how the tax code is generated.
What's up with cutting off the Child Tax Credit when the kid turns 17 during the tax year?!? That cost me a thousand bucks! If the kid is still in high school and living at home, I want my money! Heck, the kid's still living at home, and still in high school! Why did I vote for President Bush if he doesn't extend the tax credit to my oldest kid, who just happened to turn 17 last year? And while I'm at it, where's all the free oil I was supposed to get from us invading Iraq?

Going deep...

Does the kid have her driver's license? Here's what you do:

Send her to Iraq driving trucks for Halliburton. She makes $100,000 in one year, tax free, cuts you half, puts the rest to college. You put the $50,000 towards oil and the missing child tax credit.

Sorry about the no free oil Bubblehead but the UN’s Weapon of Mass Corruption (read: Oil for Food Program) siphoned off all the free stuff before George and the boys got there. The Iraqi elections are now free though.

No oil from Iraq?
If Rummey would have applied the principles of war(out lined in the book below)instead of turning Iraq into rubble, that country would be the third largest supplier of oil to the US from the Persian Gulf as it was before Iraq invasion.

"Art Of War" Cleary, Thomas

"To fight and conquer in all your battles is not supreme excellence; supreme excellence consists in breaking the enemy's resistance without fighting. In the practical art of war, the best thing of all is to take the enemy's country whole and intact; to shatter and destroy it is not so good. So, too, it is better to capture an army entire than to destroy it, to capture a regiment, a detachment, or a company entire than to destroy them."
