Thoughts from Randy Deax

I turned 18 in 1961. The State of Texas passed the " TEMPORARY " sales tax law that year . I don't know if any have noticed but that "temporary " tax is still with us
Back yonder in the 1990's we had a loud mouthed female Governor who told us that if the LOTTERY law was enacted it would pretty much fund our schools for us !
That worked like a charm didn't it .
Couple months ago our Jim Dandy new Texas Land Commissioner , a solid "RINO" by the name of Geo. P. Bush had posts on FACEBOOK that he had just sold off $ 100 MILLION worth of Texas land royalties and that would go to our schools .
I wuz a tad more then amazed that less then TWO (2 ) weeks later the Marfa , Texas ISD announced they were being forced to drop their BAND program for lack of loot !
You folks notice anything here ?
I buy / sell "junk " and as a dutiful taxpaying citizen hold a Texas resale permit so that i can legally operate my " business" and collect & remit tax to the State. I elected to pay by the month .
Circumstances have dictated that i spend much more time at home and as a result i have drastically curtailed my business . My monthly sales tax remittances have dried up for all intent and purpose.
Sooo !!! I get a letter from the Comptroller General of the State of Texas suggesting that i may consider filing my sales tax reports on a quarterly basis in order to reduce their work load and the expense involved  .
The Legislature , Governor , and the departments of the State of Texas never BLINK when it comes to passing laws , rules , regulations which drive MY expenses up and add to my work load , not to mention each and every other business owner in Texas . No problem at all if it costs me . No Sirree !!! 
No, Ms. Comptroller , reckon i will file by the month . That oughta just complicate the hell oughta your life .
Just so you folks who have enjoyed my silence are wondering , i  am not staying on . Gonna log back off . So relax.
I just had to get this one in !.
