Tax-i Please!

So our lawmakers want to make changes to our country’s tax regime. How interesting. I mean, seriously. These elected members want to ensure that those earning sh50000 and below are tax exempt. Also on their to-do list is a reduction of the fuel levy and lowering of the Value Added Tax from 16% to below 10%, in order to make life much more bearable to the common citizen.

They don’t stop there. Next is a cutback on the salaries of all state officers by 57%, including the President, his deputy and the judiciary, and cutting down the salaries, membership and budgetary allocations of constitutional commissions so as to bring down the ballooning wage bill and free up resources for development.

Start Over by Woodrow Kroll

When you’ve trusted God and walked his way

When the eyes say one thing, and the tongue another, a practiced man relies on the language of the first. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

The success of a relationship is built, in part, on how well a couple communicates. That is what breaks down obstacles in a relationship in the quest for mutual respect, trust, affection, love and intimacy. It’s through communication that one will consider their partner as their best friend, by being able to connect deeper with their beloved, share in their emotions, values, thoughts and growth. It’s through communication that one will know their worth in the eyes of their sweetheart.

Cougar Town

Well, not exactly. But there’s a school of thought whose perceived wisdom is that age shouldn’t be a factor to consider in a relationship when a man desires to date a lady older than him, that gone are the days when older women were termed ‘cradle snatchers’ and age is fast becoming more of a relative factor rather than absolute.

Quite how men have changed in their wants and desires is certainly not a sorry tale of destruction of traditions but more about the dynamism of human beings. As no one person is similar to another, so are their needs and likings.
