A woman I worked with asked me if I was gay.

When I replied I wasn't she said," No, I would know if you were gay."

If she would know then why would she ask me?

What a weird thing to say.

I agree.

That is why I mention the value from the tax rate. A low tax rate may bring either prosperity or hardship, as does a high tax rate. What has been needed for a long time is a unflinching...
