All killed because Churches pushed its cult members to hand out the "21 rules" like they were a Jehovah's Witness and this was the last day before Armageddon. They killed it plain and simple. They also pused to put creation in the school system making it look like one of the worst counties in Mississippi trying to bring back lynching as a good method of crime control. And you ask me why this thread has religion in it?
You must be an unemployed black jack dealer. Hey....there are lots of casinos in Las Vegas and Reno from what I've heard. Maybe if you moved there and gave it a try?

Yaa why even try to advance things in Wichita right? You must have been one of those smart people who stood outside the plants hading out propaganda hand bills like a Jehovaha's Witness.

I'm not sure truer words were ever spoken.

Yeah, but the irony here is that this statement was made after an anonymous person who is obviously opposed to and hates religion made an inflammatory and seemingly off-topic comment on religion via the internet. Let's give it a rest people. If you feel so desired to discuss religion, go here: http://www.city-data.com/forum/religion-philosophy/

Wait, this thread was about Income Tax Refunds?

Not an irony to me. Both sides equally irritate me and I'm utterly sick of both intruding religious stuff into discussions which having nothing to do with it. I'm embarrassed to the extent that I ever played a part in it.

Living in Washington, we don't have to deal with state income tax, but I feel for the homies. Situations like this are the reason that I believe that all human governments are some form of kleptocracy; the only question is whether it's kinder, gentler kleptocracy or rapaciously brutal kleptocracy, or somewhere in between.

The other posters made a good point: gee, does that mean that if we owe, we don't have to pay until refunds go out to the other folk deserving them? Don't bet on it, just as you should never bet on the IRS starting to pay people interest on their refunds due for the period from January 1 to the date the check is cut. If you're loaning them money, it's free for them. But if they're loaning you money, gods help you because it will surely not be free for you. In my case, last year, due to a bizarre tax law, we had to record a big Federal income surge despite the fact that it was actually a loss to be amortized over some fifteen years. (No, I can't explain the full details. It had to do with an estate over which I had no power; my wife was a beneficiary, and we file jointly.) As a result, I had to pay estimated taxes this year which I know good and well are going to be greatly excessive, and will get back over the next however many years (after the Federal government has had their use interest-free, naturally), but only after I loaned a four-figure sum to the government for a full year--and I won't get one nickel of return on my money.

Kleptocracy. Local, state and Federal.

Hardly.

But I'm a firm believer in the "majority rules" phylosophy. This is Kansas. There are certain things that you cannot change about that. We're in the Bible Belt man. Did you honestly believe that a casino would be built in central Kansas if it was put to a vote? Comethehellon!

It was majority rule in 1939 Germany. 90% of the population supported the National Socialist movement.

The National Socialist movement wasn't the problem.

Invading surrounding countries, trying to take over the world, and commiting the most brutal acts in the history of man were the problem.
