So salaried people don't work.
The last time I turned in a time sheet was with a summer job as a kid.
I guess you're still there.
Lots of salaried people, such as attorneys and engineers, turn in time sheets in some form so that clients can be billed for their time.

Dumbass Dave doesn't need a time sheet at Walmart, just punch the clock.

Since 2001, Congress has made almost 5,000 changes to U.S. tax law -- an average of more than one a day.

At nearly 4 million words, the U.S. tax law is so thick and complicated that businesses and individuals spend more than 6 billion hours a year complying with filing requirements, according to a report Wednesday by an independent government watchdog.

That's the equivalent of 3 million people working full-time, year-round.

The tax code is 10 times the size of the Bible.

Did Obama even mention tax reform as part of his plan on the campaign trail?

This explains the U.S.'Debt Ceiling' in simplest terms...

* U.S. Tax revenue:$2,170,000,000,000
* Fed budget:$3,820,000,000,000
* New debt:$ 1,650,000,000,000
* National debt:$14,271,000,000,000
* Recent budget cuts:$ 38,500,000,000
__________

Let's now remove 8 zeros and pretend it's a household budget:

* Annual family income:$21,700

* Money the family spent:$38,200

* New debt on the credit card:$16,500

* Outstanding balance on the credit card:$142,710

* Total budget cuts so far:$385

Ghetto/Gutter potty mouth Duhmmy didn't even requote it right-

Sleepy little, clean and tidy towns, carefully tended to, dappled with centuries of old, white steepled churches beckoning thier spires upwards, and well preserved centuries old homes that harbor linages of the faithful that attended them....

ESPN fires Rob Parker
Posted by Michael David Smith on January 8, 2013, 2:57 PM EST
Austin Rivers - First Take - September 19, 2012

Rob Parker, the commentator who created controversy when he questioned whether Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III is a “cornball brother” because he has a white fiancee, has been fired by ESPN.

“Rob Parker’s contract expired at year end. Evaluating our needs and his work, including his recent RGIII comments, we decided not to renew,” an ESPN spokesman said in a written statement.

ESPN can spin this as simply a decision not to renew his contract, rather than a firing, but the reality is that ESPN specifically stated on December 20 that Parker had been suspended for 30 days, and as of December 20, ESPN was expecting Parker back at the end of his 30-day suspension.(He made the comments on December 13, so a 30-day suspension from that date would have ended on January 12.)

So why did Parker’s discipline change from a 30-day suspension to termination? ESPN isn’t saying, but it may be that the network was unhappy with a recent interview Parker gave in which he said that ESPN knew what he was going to say on the air before he said it. In that interview, Parker also seemed to backtrack on his previous apology, complaining that people took his “cornball brother” statement out of context.

Parker has long been known for drawing attention to himself by stirring up controversy, and it’s unsurprising that he eventually took it too far and got himself fired. But ESPN is hardly blameless in all this: Parker made his comments on ESPN First Take, a show that celebrates provocation, and at first ESPN’s producers were so pleased with Parker’s comments about Griffin that the network re-aired the comments on Best of First Take. It was only later, after ESPN was criticized for airing the comments, that the network apologized.

And now, much later, ESPN has finally done what many viewers said it should have done from the beginning, and fired Parker.
