24-Hour Dorman: Deductibility spawns creativity
Excerpted from this post at 24-Hour Dorman
... All I know is that if the Legislature is going to take away a deduction, they ought to add some back in. It's only fair. I have 5 ideas. 1. Drinkability Deductibility - This break would recognize the economic and environmental benefits created by Iowans, like myself, who buy beer by the keg - which save aluminum and glass, are reusable and slice fossil fuel demand by requiring fewer beer runs. And what was I doing when I came up with this concept? I'd rather not say. 2. Gullibility Deductibility - Iowans should get to deduct the cost of any product they buy late at night - Snuggies, Shamwow, Loud 'N Clear etc., or the loss of any unused gold jewelery they put in a durable envelop and sent to strangers far away. ... 5. Twitterability Deductibility - A 0.0001-cent tax cut for every Tweet. That ought to deal the final death blow to the last remaining remnants of your internal dialogue.
