COWBOY POETRY BY H. FRED LIESE Fred Liese makes his home at the edge of Black Coulee near Turner, Montana. Raised on the Big Flat, he finds plenty of “inspiration” in the people and things around him every day, and Fred’s brand of entertainment has earned him a large following throughout the US and Canada.

Launched Something caught his horse’s eye It relayed to his brain Horse dislike, it was displayed This equine went insane.

Cowboy logic, it’s concrete That thread of doubt is gone Time will heal up his wounds Then it’s time to get back on….

There was no walk, there was no trot Horseshoes hit the cloud They pointed up, then blasted down The turf was getting plowed.

But questions rise and answers fall His grandson chose to fill it Inquiring about the horse, “My grandpa’s gonna kill it.”

With every leap, there was a bound The ride, it went corrupt The saddle, it popped in to view The rider, he’s bucked up.

Fred Liese Tricia’s Trader, © 2011

With the lift, there came the thrust He’s in the air, propelled An airborne clock, no time to tick No tock could be expelled.

Come in for a test save.

Calamity, it came to view No schedule neatly planned Focus vanished, it dissolved No padded spot to land. Stirrups tend to get a grip His feet came freely loose Angels watched from up above They fought off drug abuse. The angels sang from up above Was it rock and roll? Maybe true but maybe not That rock it wouldn’t roll.

By guest contributor Greg Dugdale of Raymond James Financial Services, Inc. Havre, Montana

What Roth hath, tRaditional hath not The Taxpayer Relief Act of 1997 introduced a new Individual Retirement Account (IRA) called the Roth IRA. The primary inducement to make contributions to the new Roth IRA is that distributions are tax-free if certain conditions are met. One drawback to the Roth IRA is that contributions to the account are never deductible. The passage of the Economic Growth and Tax Relief Reconciliation Act in 2001 provided for increased contributions going forward. For 2011, an individual may contribute up to $5,000 to a Roth IRA (less any contribution made to a traditional IRA). In addition, EGTRRA established a catch-up provision. Individuals who have attained age 50 or over during the tax year may contribute an additional $1,000. Contributions to Roth IRAs are not deductible and must be made in cash. In addition, unlike regular IRAs, there is no age restriction on making contributions. Instead, the ability to contribute to a Roth IRA is limited based on Income. First, one must have at least as much earned income as the contribution. Second, if income is too great, contributions to a Roth IRA may be phased out. For single filers, the allowed contribution is phased out for AGI between $107,000 and $122,000. For married individuals, the allowed contribution is reduced proportionately if AGI is between $169,000 and $179,000. No Roth IRA contributions are allowed if an individual is married and files separately. The earnings attributable to contributions accumulate on a tax-deferred basis and become tax free and penalty free upon withdrawal providing the Roth IRA has been in effect for at least five years and the taxpayer: • has attained the age 59 1/2, • dies or becomes disabled, or • is a “qualified first-time home buyer” using the distribution in the purche of a primary residence. Distributions from a Roth IRA that has been in effect for at least five years and are taken for any of the above reasons are known as “qualified distributions.” Qualified distributions are not includible in taxable income. Now for the tricky part, distributions that are taken from Roth IRAs before any of the events specified above are met are deemed “non-qualified distributions.” Non-qualified distributions will be taxable and potentially exposed to the 10% penalty to the extent the distribution includes earnings. Unlike traditional IRAs, there is no requirement to begin distributions from a Roth IRA at age 70 1/2. An individual can continue to defer tax on Roth IRA earnings for their entire lifetime. The traditional IRA required minimum distribution rules do apply to the beneficiary of a Roth IRA following the death of the Roth IRA participant. Thus, a beneficiary can continue to defer tax on Roth IRA earnings but the beneficiary is subject to minimum distribution requirements. Traditional assets IRA may be rolled over (or converted) into a Roth IRA. Withdrawals from a traditional IRA that are converted into a Roth IRA are not subject to the 10% penalty tax. However, the full amount of the conversion may be subject to taxation. In deciding whether to make contributions to a traditional IRA or a Roth IRA, a taxpayer should take into account a number of factors. Some of these factors are eligibility to make contributions, the number of years to accumulate earnings, the time projected to begin distributions and current versus future tax brackets. A taxpayer must consider whether the current deduction of contributions to a traditional IRA is more valuable than the future recovery of earnings tax free. Of course, this brief article is no substitute for a careful examination of all of the advantages and disadvantages of this matter in light of your unique personal financial circumstances. Before implementing a financial planning strategy, contact and consult with your Financial Advisor and tax professional.

A DEA officer stops at a ranch in Montana and talks with an old rancher. He tells the rancher, “I need to inspect your ranch for illegally grown drugs.” The old rancher says, “Okay, but do not go in that field over there,” as he points out the location. The DEA officer verbally explodes, saying, “Mister, I have the authority of the federal government with me.” Reaching into his rear pants pocket, he removes his badge and proudly displays it to the farmer. “See this badge? This badge means I am allowed to go wherever I wish, on any land. No questions aksed or answers given. Have I made myself clear? Do you understand? The old rancher nods politely, apologizes, and goes about his chores. A short time later, the old rancher hears loud screams and sees the DEA officer running for his life, chased close behind by the rancher’s prize bull. With every step, the bull is gaining ground on the officer, and it seems likely that he’ll get “horned” before he reaches safety. The officer is clearly terrified. The old rancher throws down his tools, runs to the fence, and yells at the top of his lungs, “Your badge! Show him your badge!”

Ramblings of a Conservative Cow Doctor

by Krayton Kerns, DVM, State Rep. HD 58

We hope you enjoy reading this feature in Tricia’s Trader. You may agree, you may disagree with Dr. Kerns’ Ramblings, but

you will always have something to discuss over dinner.

Lying 101

Politicians are masters of lying and have spent decades trapping gullible victims in webs of deceit so complex the truth is completely obscured to all but those who expend great effort to learn it. In the name of public service, today’s column reveals a trade secret to guide you through the smoke and mirrors of political manipulations. (It is a secret, so keep it between us.) Whenever a politician offers a statement as fact, ask yourself, “How will he/she benefit if I believe them?” Many times the answer to this one question clarifies everything. We will apply the “who benefits” trick to two stories I found in the November 21st Drudge Report. The first story is a simple one, just for practice. The second story is convoluted and some people will disagree with the truth even after it is revealed. Here we go. Story #1: Today, trendy women follow the teaching of Hollywood prophets and feel it is attractive to have a larger than normal backside. They will invest large sums of money building one. Apparently, if your bottom is so large it obscures an 18 inch saddle plus most of the horse it’s cinched to, you have reached the level of a modern day goddess. To enhance her self-esteem and obtain a job in a night club, a young Florida woman met with a cheap plastic surgeon in a darkened Miami motel room. She forked over $700 cash to a man, dressed as a woman, impersonating a doctor, and he/she injected the girl’s backside with a secret concoction of cement, mineral oil, and flat-tire sealant. Post-operatively, the injection holes were sealed with Super-Glue and the patient waddled out the door. Twenty-four hours after treatment the young lady visited an emergency room in excruciating pain. (Please insert the expression “No Excrement” here.) If we apply the “who benefits” question to the story, the fake doctor stuffed his wallet, or her purse with $700, so he must be lying. Upon release of this story numerous other victims have bravely waddled forward, so expect to see some Florida politician add Fix-A-Flat to the list of dangerous items requiring a prescription. The second story is full of lies and half truths. You might want to diagram this lie on paper because it is more convoluted than giving $700 to a transgender, fake doctor to inject your backside with concrete…although the effects of both lies are ironically similar. Story #2: Politicians spend money to feel good—they just love giving away your stuff. Collecting other people’s money is easy because a cold government bureaucracy, the Internal Revenue Service, does the dirty work. With the simple push of a button, ruling-class politicians decree the percent of their subject’s personal income they wish to be charitable with and the wheels of big government begin turning. Politicians have generously given away 15 trillion dollars more in freebies and programs than the IRS has collected in the treasury. (This is problematic to those of us paying the bills.) President Obama’s 2012 budget is a record $3.73 trillion and marks the first time Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and interest on the debt will consume all tax revenues. Twelve of the politicians who created the very problem offered to get us out of the debt hole by adopting the name “Super Committee” and without actually stopping digging they are formulating a plan to slow the rate at which they are digging. The November 21st deadline passed and the Super Committee astonishingly announced, “We have no plan and the hole is getting deeper.” (Please insert the expression “No Excrement” here.) Politicians on the Super Committee are advancing the lie our debt problem is caused by the rich not paying their fair share. In reality, the ruling class could confiscate all income above $100,000 and garner only $3.4 trillion—an amount insufficient to fund federal freebies. Who benefits if you believe them? They do. Increasing anyone’s taxes shrinks the economy and grows government, so in the end, the ruling-class Super Committee strengthens their grip over your life. It is called death through dependency. Because it is a mathematical impossibility to balance the federal budget by increasing revenues—the problem is on the spending side. They are lying.
