Just a few suggestions for things I think should be deductable from our taxes:

*  Alcohol, for medicinal purposes of course!

*  Gas.  We're already being taxed at the pump, to tax the money that we spend at the pump would be double taxation.

*  Heck, any added sales tax would be double taxation.... first they tax your paycheck, and then add sales tax to everything you spend whats left of your paycheck on!  One or the other, not both!

*  School supplies, we average about $150 per child over the course of the year.  This should be separate from the child tax credit... any parent who has to deal with a child needs all the incentive they can get! 

*  Toilet paper!    Lets just say that the average house has 2 bathrooms, at 4 rolls of paper a week each, at a cost of $2.00 (mid-brand), with  6% sales tax, thats $12.48 on taxes for toilet paper over the course of the year.   I call it the Poop Tax, and I don't think we should have to pay it!  Just to prove my point I would like to arrange a boycott... a stand-in of people who don't use toilet paper for a week to stage a peaceful, although somewhat smelly protest at the IRS.... and we won't leave until they lift the Poop Tax.

(any other suggestions?)

Side note (bottom note... whatever!):  The picture I posted of Rocky eating a footlong hotdog was covered with chili and cheese, not ketchup and mustard.  Personally I wouldn't have had a problem with that much mustard, I love the stuff!  And to those of you who felt I should have said something to Mr. Soccer Dad, you're absolutely right.  It went against everything I am to resist a confrontation with him to a point where I was maybe a little overly conscious of my actions.  I Could-a  politely asked him to sit down.  I Should-a spoken up for the children... but then again, I probably Would-a said something rude to rile him up and then you all would have been reading about me on AOL news as the Chaparone Mom who attacked the Chaparone Dad at the ball game infront of a stadium full of 5th and 6th graders!  Rocky was proud of me, I didn't embarrass her and ultimately thats what matters.  But ohhhhh buddy.... if I see that guy again and he pulls something as inconsiderate as that again... I WILL have something to say to him!
