So May We Pay Our Taxes in Pesos?

On my way to the office this morning, I stopped by the local office of the Internal Revenue Service to pick up some forms.   But when I asked for a copy of Publication 17 (http://www NULL.irs NULL.gov/publications/p17/index NULL.html), the comprehensive set of forms and instructions,  I was told that Pub 17 is out of stock.

But they have it in Spanish.

At first this seemed strange to me, but upon further reflection I can understand that printing tax forms and instructions in Spanish might have the effect of enabling and encouraging Spanish-speaking persons to file.   Still, the instructions should be available in English, and our long-term policy should be to encourage new residents to learn English.

    The real issue is definition because if our I(ignorant) R(representatives) S(selected) have ever played “BINGO” as a child, they should be able to define that “Casino gambling” is not a harmless kids game.
    But the dumbing down of our language continues as Tax revenuers in the peoples house vote themselves a raise for such a good job well done.
    Will the coming election change anything? Will our dollar turn toward the Peso in value?
