Enclosed is my 2004 Form 1040, together with payment. Please take note of the attached article from "USA Today" archives. In the article, you will note that the Pentagon paid $171.50 each for hammers and NASA paid $600.00 each for toilet seats.

Please find enclosed in this package four toilet seats (value $2,400.00) and six hammers (value $1,029.00). This is in payment for my total tax due of $3,429.00. Out of a sense of patriotic duty, and to assist in the political purification of our government, I am also enclosing a 1.5 inch Phillips head screw, for which HUD duly recorded and approved a purchase value of $2200, as my contribution to fulfill the Presidential Election Fund option on Form 1040.

It has been a pleasure to pay my taxes this year, and I look forward to paying them again next year in accordance with officially established government values.

Another satisfied taxpayer

# GreenZap is a new on-line money storage and transfer system that will launch this summer. Preregister now, for free, using my promo code, "endthewaronfreedom" (encoded in the link, and in the "GreenZap" link in the right-hand column of this page), and you'll get $25. Have somebody else use your promo code, and you get $5. Upgrade to gold member by depositing $100 in your account, and you'll get $20 every time somebody you refer upgrades to gold. If lots of them do it, it becomes $30 apiece. GreenZap is spending their marketing money on these member rewards instead of mass media advertisement. They ask for name, address, and email address, and give you the option of telling them your telephone number. They say nothing about what their fees are going to be for using the service, except that those fees are how they're going to make money. I see nothing, except your conscience, that will prevent you from registering as many accounts as you want, with various free email addresses and fictitious names & addresses, for $30 apiece.

The future of money. It's zappening.

# Jeff Quinn at Gunblast - New "Trail Boss" Smokeless Powder from IMR - a good cowboy action powder. It lets you fill the case more than half full and still get light loads. I'll have to ask my powder source to get some of it so I can try it for the .44 mag loads I shoot through my Marlin 1894P. 7.5 grains of Unique hardly fills any of the case. Trailboss loading data is here. [gunblast]
