in which witness is borne: birds, politics, fiction and critical art theory

smoke on the water

Tuesday, October 26, 2004
chillingly noted at an artists' tax seminar over the weekend:
a CPA said in passing that the only clients of hers EVER to be audited have been audited in the past 2 years for 2001 and 2002 AND
they are all individual-owned businesses which reported a net LOSS for that year.

it takes a lot of sitting meditation practice to accept that there is an endgame to all this--severing of civil liberties, escalating war abroad and fear at home, lies about the benefits of tax cuts, misallocation of resources to scrutinize the poor and camouflage the rich--that will benefit the greater good of humanity. Perhaps this whole economy, this whole obese society needs to crash to its knees in order to learn what it is to be good for its citizens.
