Dear Friend,

Indiana is celebrating its 200th birthday with various events around the state.

One of the most exciting parts of the celebration happening in each of Indiana's 92 counties is the Bicentennial Torch Relay.

[Click here to tweet about the relay]

The torch relay kicked off in Corydon, the state's first capital, and will end at the Statehouse on
Oct. 15. The torch is being carried by walkers, runners and bearers using various modes of transportation showcasing Indiana's heritage — like race cars and farm equipment. It's my honor to be chosen as one of the torchbearers of Allen County.

The relay will enter Allen County at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 1. For more information about the route, click here. You can also follow the relay, view photos and learn about local events by downloading the Indiana Torch Relay app your iPhone or Android.

A once-in-a-lifetime event in which we celebrate our history, the Indiana Bicentennial Torch Relay is a great learning experience for all ages. I hope you and your family can come out and support the torchbearers and enjoy Indiana's birthday.

Sincerely,

State Rep. Casey Cox

Mike's Blind Date

Joe sets up his friend Mike on a blind date with a young lady-friend of his. But Mike is a little worried about going out with someone he's never seen before. "What do I do if she's really unattractive?" says Mike. "I'll be stuck with her all evening."

"Don't worry," Joe says, "just go up to her door and meet her first. If you like what you see, then everything goes as planned. If you don't just shout 'Aaaaaauuuggghhh!' and fake an asthma attack."

So that night, Mike knocks at the girl's door and when she comes out he is awe-struck at how attractive and sexy she is. He's about to speak when the girl suddenly shouts:

"Aaaaaauuuggghhh!"

The Senate cleared a key procedural vote on a bill to avoid a government shutdown at the end of the week, with passage from the Senate and House expected as early as today.

Democrats dropped their resistance to the bill, which would fund the federal government through Dec. 9, after a bipartisan deal was reached to ensure aid to Flint, Mich., is provided in the lame-duck session.

The Senate voted overwhelmingly Wednesday to override President Barack Obama's veto of legislation allowing families of the victims of the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks to sue the government of Saudi Arabia. The final tally was 97-1.

The House is expected to take up the matter later this week. It would be the first successful veto override of Obama's presidency.

In Email from IRS today:

New Private Debt Collection Program to Begin Next Spring; IRS to Contract with Four Agencies; Taxpayer Rights Protected

WASHINGTON - The Internal Revenue Service announced today that it plans to begin private collection of certain overdue federal tax debts next spring and has selected four contractors to implement the new program.

The new program, authorized under a federal law enacted by Congress last December, enables these designated contractors to collect, on the government’s behalf, outstanding inactive tax receivables. As a condition of receiving a contract, these agencies must respect taxpayer rights including, among other things, abiding by the consumer protection provisions of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. The IRS has selected the following contractors to carry out this program:

CBE Group 1309 Technology Pkwy Cedar Falls, IA 50613

Conserve 200 CrossKeys Office park Fairport, NY 14450

Performant 333 N Canyons Pkwy Livermore, CA 94551

Pioneer 325 Daniel Zenker Dr Horseheads, NY 14845

These private collection agencies will work on accounts where taxpayers owe money, but the IRS is no longer actively working their accounts. Several factors contribute to the IRS assigning these accounts to private collection agencies, including older, overdue tax accounts or lack of resources preventing the IRS from working the cases.

The IRS will give each taxpayer and their representative written notice that their account is being transferred to a private collection agency. The agency will then send a second, separate letter to the taxpayer and their representative confirming this transfer.

Private collection agencies will be able to identify themselves as contractors of the IRS collecting taxes. Employees of these collection agencies must follow the provisions of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and must be courteous and respect taxpayer rights.

The IRS will do everything it can to help taxpayers avoid confusion and understand their rights and tax responsibilities, particularly in light of continual phone scams where callers impersonate IRS agents and request immediate payment.

Private collection agencies will not ask for payment on a prepaid debit card. Taxpayers will be informed about electronic payment options for taxpayers on IRS.gov/Pay Your Tax Bill. Payment by check should be payable to the U.S. Treasury and sent directly to IRS, not the private collection agency.

The IRS will continue to keep taxpayers informed about scams and provide tips for protecting themselves. The IRS encourages taxpayers to visit IRS.gov for information including the “Tax Scams and Consumer Alerts” page.

For more information visit the Private Debt Collection page on IRS.gov.

I think a more accurate paradigm is that the compass is still there, but the parties have found large magnets that move the needle away from true north. Rationalization of our wrongs instead of disciplines to do what is right. Changing the Word of God instead of the Word of God changing us.

Proverbs 14:12 There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.

Isaiah 66:4 I also will choose their delusions, and will bring their fears upon them; because when I called, none did answer; when I spake, they did not hear: but they did evil before mine eyes, and chose that in which I delighted not.

2 Thessalonians 2:10-12 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

Introduction
You have never lost until you agree that you are defeated.

Who am I?
Over time I have built a world-view, like constructing a map of the cosmos, and from this, essentially everything is understandable and anything is possible. The most important things that I have learned have been self-taught by picking up on or asking myself good, clear, penetrating questions to expose and articulate the hidden structures that underlie the experience of living.

It’s a complex world, and I believe we each should develop the facility to interact in a wide variety of ways. If something really interests me I have an incredible ability to stick with it — even though I have a larger perspective, I can be very focused and zero in on a point. I have always seen the world at many levels.

I’m always interested in developing expertise in new areas. I tend to be someone who looks at all the what-ifs, anticipating all possible scenarios and their likelihood: I rarely have just a 'plan A'. Once people comprehend the significance of what I am explaining to them, they usually also recognize its importance. The problem is that it may be ten years before they realize that I am right -- ten lost years which could have been productive.

Autonomy is important, to be respected for my own thoughts and feelings, ideas and creativity. It is frustrating when people simply dismiss a concept without trying to understand or worse when they actually fight against progress because doing the best thing for everyone would mean they collected less money than they could get otherwise. Greed is a very ugly abuser. Still, I never really think of others as 'too stupid to understand': only that I have somehow still not explained in a way that they can grasp, although sometimes I must concede that they simply don't want to understand. I am instinctively tolerant but the one thing I cannot stand is people who just don't care: about the quality of their own work or their effect on others' lives.

I am naturally organized, structured, and analytical. If a project enters my mind it immediately assumes the form of its pieces, its basic structure, and what sequence of events is required to get it done. This isn’t something I do: it happens instantaneously without effort. Issues are multifaceted and I try to think from different perspectives, not only my perspectives but others’ too. I’ve found it’s good to gather as many facts as I can. Sometimes there is a piece that needs to be thrown out, or maybe it’s the seed of another project.

My analytical instinct also makes me coolheaded even under extreme circumstances: when others loose their head in a disaster, or become trapped in placing blame, I am already working out solutions. If a shooter walked into my classroom and shot me in the heart, I would still act, knowing that I had about 6-8 seconds to stop him from harming anyone else before my body quit working.

I won’t do something if I feel I can’t do it well.
