And here is what I was thinking of. Though we had the amendment earlier, Congress did not  pass the 1916 Revenue Act until WWI brought the need for cash to the fore. This is when the populace got rooked by the leaders who had grabbed the power to tax our productivity, through persuading us that the amendment would apply only to the very richest among us.  QUOTE:
The entry of the United States into World War I greatly increased the need for revenue and Congress responded by passing the 1916 Revenue Act. The 1916 Act raised the lowest tax rate from 1 percent to 2 percent and raised the top rate to 15 percent on taxpayers with incomes in excess of $1.5 million. ....
Driven by the war and largely funded by the new income tax, by 1917 the Federal budget was almost equal to the total budget for all the years between 1791 and 1916. Needing still more tax revenue, the War Revenue Act of 1917 lowered exemptions and greatly increased tax rates. In 1916, a taxpayer needed $1.5 million in taxable income to face a 15 percent rate. By 1917 a taxpayer with only $40,000 faced a 16 percent rate and the individual with $1.5 million faced a tax rate of 67 percent.

Thanks for the adventures.
I am a geocacher, which means that the world is my playground. I am a proud Canadian who lives in North Carolina, so my writing is full of extra u's, and oddly pronounced 'outs'. I also have an inferiority complex and a penchant for self deprecating humour. View my complete profile ...

It is mornings like yesterdays that keeps me in the bike commuting game.

I posted some raw pics yesterday (I believe).  Last night I polished some of them up and wrote the story that goes with them.  I hope you enjoy em.
I love winter. I can't get enough of it. This is mostly due to the fact that here in North Carolina I only get 5% of the winter that I had gotten used to having when I was growing up in Canada. Also because I get to mix it with my other passions that I have developed since I've moved to North ...

Made it to work today!  It feels more monumental to say that than normal because the rest of the county is on a snow day  - even my office is on a delayed start (officially not supposed to be here for another half hour.)

Thanks to the great folks at +Luna Cycles doing a quick turn around and getting my bike back to ridable condition, I was able to enjoy an awesome snow ride to work.

Gotta love riding in the snow!

I went skiing years ago and it was the first time I had ever seen people riding bikes on snow.

LOL. Run! Run for your lives! That's pretty much how it works when we get snow on Vancouver Island.

Apparently, due to roads too dangerous to drive cars on, schools in Caldwell County North Carolina are closed today.

I guess this is another good reason why everyone should get a bike.

Story
Tagline
Geocacher, explorer, resident alien.
Introduction
It is my lot in life to resemble a cross between Indiana Jones, the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, and Chewbacca (what a wookie!)

I am a geocacher, which means that the world is my playground.

I am a proud Canadian who lives in North Carolina, so my writing is full of extra u's, and oddly pronounced 'outs'. I also have an inferiority complex and a penchant for self deprecating humour.
Bragging rights
I can levitate birds. No one cares.
