  1. This privilege tax completely flies in the face of what America was founded on. I honestly can’t believe that this won’t be repealed, at least, I sincerely hope it is. Taxing bloggers for keeping a digital diary? It’s ludicrous. Sometimes I wonder about the intelligence of the individuals we elect to office.

      You stay up on your Political Gardening…. AWESOME!
      Great to find another garden blogger using WordPress. I can’t wait to take a closer look at what you are sharing from your garden down south.

      I followed you over from Jennas’ new site!

    The article mentioned that the blogger in question did make some money (though she did not turn a profit).

    This might be a perfect opportunity for more of us to choose ad free blogs, which I, for one, much prefer.

    I read that same article and wondered “What is this world coming to?!” Quite honestly, there are a lot of things happening that we would be wise to pay closer attention to. Thank you for the heads up!
