Porcupine's Quill
Nov 6, 2011


Yep!  They call me FLOW.  You gotta go with the flow -- go along to get
along.  That's what my family has been doing for generations -- from nesting
in the Afro of a young firebrand ... to hiding in the short crew of a smooth
urbane politico.  Still, as I said before, we now reside on tops that matter ...
across the world -- quite a journey for a little unknown from a poor East
Asian island.  Yes, Gramps was quite a guy ... knew how to pick 'em.  
Fortunately, his hosts didn't -- know how to pick 'em -- if you see what I mean.

Well, to come to politicos and we've seen them all -- wish the Chinese guy
wouldn't put so much grease on his head ... difficult to move around you
know.  And the French one -- God!  The perfume he uses.  Most of my family
moving to him, moved on.  Who wouldn't?  What a doll, that babe of his.

I keep getting sidetracked.  Life's been so much fun, you know.  But to come
back to chief honcho here.  Remember when he talked about the $70 billion
(probably more) that the Super-rich save through tax loopholes, setting up
all kinds of trusts and such in the Caymans and elsewhere.  That, by the way,
is about as much as the Bush tax-cuts.  Well, big boss promised in his
election campaign to get rid of the tax loopholes.  Ha! Ha!  We got a program,
poorly staffed at the IRS, that would capture about $8 billion ... in ten years.  
And they are getting away with $70+ billion each year.  Guess what?  Even
the miserable $8 billion-in-ten-years program was nixed by Congress.  
Surprise?  Hell, no.
At least not for me ... I am a blood sucker too.  I understand them.
