    It is a crime actually. One that you can get fined for.

    But no one will really care enough to prosecute you.
    The consistent factor of all of your dissatisfying relationships and failures is you.

    Man, that sucks. The Feds can fine someone for ... not responding also? Or just lying on the form?
    I promise I won't do it again

    They can fine for both. But they don't do that. If you lie, that's on you and you have ceded your control over being represented properly in government matters. If you don't respond, they just expend federal resources to track you down and get your answers.

    Not a town, Rick Perry's hunting camp was named Niggerhead, until the name became public. Then he changed it.

    There is also a Negro Mountain Road in Maryland just south of the peak.

    Here are some other places that provide only the best mailing addresses:

    That's a pretty good way to kill your political career....speaking of that...

    Changing the name from Niggerhead in Texas?

    Nah, he seems to be doing fine there still.

    The only real regret I have in life is not moving out of this hell hole before I got married to a wife who won't move and had kids...


    You could not be more wrong. Fast Eddie is Governor no longer. For the last two years:

    Budgets have been passed

    Unemployment is lower than three years ago.

    Taxes have not been raised in the last two years , although Corbett was handed a deficit when he took office.

    I'm not aware of any population flight from Pa. Philly, yes, but not the state.

    I'm still waiting to see the Democrats running on a platform of reduced federal spending.

    Today a Texas State Rep introduced a bill that would make it illegal for the University of Texas and Texas A&M to not play a football game against one another. How's that for a lawmaker with nothing better to do?
