Doing my taxes today and the results weren't good. Retirees like me would like to know why our social security benefits were taxed when we earned them and are taxed again when we get them? Their philosophy assumes that people who are doing well off with pensions, etc. really don't need social security benefits. But we earned them - nuff said!
BTW, that photo is the Pacific ocean near San Francisco - cold and treacherous on a foggy day. Perfect ingredients for a melancholy mood.
