I guess I am more gullible than I realized. I assumed that was a true
statement without question. What made you decide to test it?
I sent my math whiz friend your statement and figures. I await his reply...
Not, of course, that I don't have faith in your reasoning abilities.
I am distressed to learn of your and Lance's financial status. (How do you
grammatically say the previous sentence? The "you/r and Lance" part. No
matter how many times I say it aloud, it sounds WRONG.) I have three
friends who are working for the census. I hope and pray you get that job,
Lance. Are you interested in working for the census, Siarlys? We are in
sad shape financially, but we still have food in the fridge, the deep freeze
and the pantry, so I really have no place to complain. I would like it if
our bank 'autopays' could be put "on hold" until we have money in the bank
as the insufficient funds charges of $37 for each transaction are pulling us
farther and farther under. How does charging us allow us to catch up?
Subject: [GCFL-discuss] Axioms
Kaufman's Axiom is funny, but
The Salary Axiom was prepared by someone who can't do math.
There is no such thing as a pay raise which costs more, by moving you
into a higher tax bracket, than the amount of the raise.
The higher percentage applies only to the money OVER the lower limit for
the bracket, and it is always less than 100%.
10% of $10,000
15% of income over $10,000 but less than $50,000
25% of income over $50,00.
If you made $45,000 before and $55,000 after,
$1000 + $5250 = $6250 leaving you $38,750.
$1000 + $6000 + $1250 = $8250 leaving you $46, 750.
I can always use an extra $6000, even if Uncle Sam has already taken
I'm not sure I'm going to make $6000 this entire year.
