4 Pinocchios

Glimmer Of Hope

Friend, Here are three things I've been working on that I thought you might be interested in: 1. One Step Closer To Tax Let's be very clear: The budget the U.S. Senate passed last night is a sham.

The only reason I went along with this process is to get tax done this year. Job one is getting the economy going, and the economy w… Continue Reading
