Welcome to the Ramblings of Mr Bump. I am Mr Bump, this is my blog, these are my words, and this is how I see "it" all from the kitchen table at the Bump House.
I simply cannot believe my eyes today. The EPA with the stalwart support of the Obama administration wants to, wait for it, ban all sport fishing in the US. You heard me right – how to thoroughly piss off about 60,000,000 fishermen and women.
The Obama administration will accept no more public input for a federal strategy that could prohibit U.S. citizens from fishing the nation’s oceans, coastal areas, Great Lakes, and even inland waters.
This reminds me of that Sienfeld episode with the Soup Nazi, NO SOUP FOR YOU!
Is it almost time for the angry villagers with their pitchforks or tar and feathers to start marching? These clowns just might be biting off more than they can chew.

Just wanted to share some information that I came accross today about the IRS tracking seller payment transactions beginning next yer. Read below.
Internet sellers who don't report their sales will no longer be under the radar. Starting next year, any bank or other payment settlement company that processes credit cards, debit cards, and electronic payments such as PayPal will have to issue information returns telling the IRS what merchants receive. The new returns are Form 1099-K, Merchant Card and Third-Party Payments. Read the full article here...
But don't worry my fellow ebayer's there is an exception built in that many of us small time sellers fall under. I found this bit of info below, in the article linked above:
Exception: Very small merchants won't be issued information returns. "Small" for this purpose means annual gross sales on merchant cards of no more than $20,000 or 200 or fewer transactions. In other words, reporting is required only if gross amounts for the year exceed $20,000 and there are more than 200 transactions.
Wow, you go girl!!!
"Treating this like a mere law enforcement matter places our country at grave risk, because that's not how radical Islamics are looking at this, they know we are at war and to win that war, we need a commander-in-chief - not a professor of law standing at the lectern. It is that same kind of misguided thinking that is seen throughout the Administration's foreign policy decisions. Our President spent a year reaching out to hostile regimes, writing personal letters to dangerous dictators and apologizing for America."

Just when you thought things could not get any more absurd, another day dawns and it does. Little People want to ban the word ‘Midget’ because they say it is just as offensive as racial slurs. Ok so would they prefer Little people, Dwarf, Munchkins, or Vertically Challenged?
Ok, I am good with whatever word they would like us to use when referring to them, but Mr Bump thinks banning words, any words is just absurd. I guess they would have to rename the MG Miget car line, how about MG Bump?
