I want to pay tribute to wonderful people I have known, the wonderful country in which I live, the communities in which I have lived, the churches who have claimed me as their own, the God who sends shivers down my back when I really give him a portion of my time—well, maybe not shivers but tears flow easily in some of those most priceless times.

PAYING TAXES/RECEIVING BENEFITS/AND OTHER MUSINGS

About oneta hayesABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before.

(even to the paying of taxes to the Govt and what is God’s in our thanks offerings etc. .Thought provoking. Thank you.
Thank you for the comment. I’m concerned that our future generations are going to have more serious concerns with their governments that we are. Seems like the young ones are falling for what glitters. It is not gold. They are bankrupt concerning history, government, and economics.
The choice of taxpayers should be free. The direction for investments from retirement income should also be chosen independently
Thanks so much for this comment. However, I admit I’m not sure to what your statement refers. I agree with you about the free choice regarding retirement investments. But I’m not sure how I would handle those who say they want freedom of choice but then do nothing about putting money aside for retirement. Therefore they reach retirement age without means except to draw on government.
