So clearly there are ways around a consumption or flat tax.
Homer is also not in the habit of snitching for those of you suggesting I turn his ass in, also there isn't any proof, to be fair I did not look at the receipt to see if there was a line item for taxes before I pitched it.
And before you start yapping about me using a credit card, it is paid in full every month, I have never paid any interest nor annual fee on it. I use it to accumulate points and get free stuff. Homer working the system.
There's ways around everything if you have a brain cell functioning. Also, we can move out of this country if we don't like it. Is there any place that likes Americans, however?

Homer is an admitted criminal. Homer is responsible for paying the sales tax if the merchant fails to collect the tax. Homer is also responsible for paying sales tax on out-of-state purchases that are taxable in his home state, even if no tax is charged at point of purchase.

John Lurch Kerry's report about WMD reminds me of exactly the same thing they did about Iraq & WMDs, only know we have a Democrat president so everything in the Ministry of Propaganda will be just hunky-dory.

"rethinking Afghanistan"...
When Bush left office, Al Qaeda and the Taliban were holed up in caves in the tribal regions. Since Obama took office, Al Qaeda and the Taliban are running around the entire country blowing up villages everywhere.
When Bush left office, Al Qaeda was holed up in caves. Since Obama took office, Al Qaeda has established jihad training facilities in multiple countries, and has rebuilt sufficiently to take over countries.
Do you support Obama's intent to get Americans killed helping Al Qaeda acquire the chemical weapons in Syria?
I do not support any military action without U.N. backing or as a coalition of nations...including Britain. Period. IMO, if Obama allows the warmongers to persuade him to abandon his principles by taking unilateral military action against Syria, he will make himself a laughing stock.

I suggest you call the cops. Point being this stuff happens all the time if it happened to me once. Look how much you rightwingers hate paying taxes and will do anything and everything to avoid paying them.

Kerry: Syrian Chemical Attack Killed 1,429
Kerry also reassured Americans that a possible military intervention in Syria would not repeat the mistakes of the Iraqi invasion.
"More than mindful of the Iraq experience. We will not repeat that moment," he said at the State Department.
http://livewire.talkingpointsmemo.com/entry/k...
Obama's desire to attack Syria is not the result of actions taken during a civil war. Obama is angry at Assad for disagreeing with Obama's political agenda. This is simply an example that Obama thinks he is King of The Earth and can do anything he wants without consequence. The Obama Zombies across the United States idolize him so much that they will never question his actions,then they call any one that does question Obama's agenda a racist.

Without an income tax, there is no longer any incentive for a merchant to do business under the table.

The New Jersey business model will die.
