<quoted text>Ever wonder why only losers like you keep the story going?
The JS first reported on the tax charge back in May, when the left/media was flogging the story of the video where Walker was caught-on-tape using the phrase "divide and conquer" in a conversation with Hendricks.
Back then, however, the paper provided some useful context: Hendricks had paid millions a dollars in state income taxes in the years prior to 2010. In fact, in 2009, her tax bill was a whopping $2.26 million, but dropped to zero the next year.
Why? What happened?
As it turns out, the explanation was quite straight forward if somewhat complicated. The company Hendricks owned had changed its corporate structure, which changed the way taxes were reported and paid.
Scott Bianchini, ABC's tax director, explained that "before 2010, ABC Supply was an "S" corporation, meaning the profits and the tax obligation flowed to Hendricks as the owner of the firm. In 2010, the company changed its structure so the profits and the tax obligation stay with the company."
"Now ABC is paying taxes on its own," Bianchini said....
"In addition, Bianchini provided records showing that the company paid Wisconsin income taxes of more than $1 million last year and said that Hendricks' 2011 income tax liability is "substantial." through her business.
In other words, Diane Hendricks not only did pay state taxes, she paid a ton of them.
None of that context was provided in Sunday's story --perhaps because it didn't fit the Diane Hendricks-is-a-greedy-tax-avoi ding-billionaire narrative.
**
The Hendricks-paid-no taxes meme was pushed hard earlier this year by a variety of left leaning groups, who shopped the story that she had paid no corporate taxes despite being worth more than $2 billion. The charge was flogged by the Institute for Wisconsin's Future which falsely charged that “ABC Supply paid exactly $0.00 in state corporate income tax in 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2008, according to the state Department of Revenue.”
But the institute got it wrong.
However, Scott Bianchini, tax director with Beloit-based ABC Supply, said the Institute for Wisconsin’s Future jumped to a conclusion without thoroughly checking the facts.(just like you usm).
lol! But you're still the original pig son....

"The Fed knows that the U.S. economy is not recovering," Schiff said. "It simply is being kept from collapse by artificially low interest rates and quantitative easing. As that support goes, the economy will implode."

"The crisis is imminent," Schiff said. "I don't think Obama is going to finish his second term without the bottom dropping out. And stock market investors are oblivious to the problems."

Is this just too hard to imagine or talk about?

What if Schiff is right? I wasn't sure we were going to survive the first four years. But Obamacare is here, the economy is not recovering nearly fast enough, the deficit is off the charts, and the other shoe has to drop eventually.

Hopefully, not until the GOP has the reins again in Congress. But what if the loons on here still manage to represent the wrong people being voted back in? It didn't seem possible in 2012. But look what happened.

This is in response to Flacks post #1104804:

"Researchers do admit that these numbers might be flawed. They wrote in the report that most states don’t have abortion rate data based on race/ethnicity, "

I guess you didn't read that sentence! What point are you trying to make? Yesterday you were posting welfare statistics claiming that more black women were on welfare than whites;
are you saying that black women should be prohibited from obtaining abortions?

If they have the babies and cannot support them; they will go on welfare; and you will disparage them. You will then post statistics that black children from single mothers do poorly in school; get suspended more often.

I applaud those young women who have chosen abortion rather than bring a child into this world that they cannot take care of.
It's the responsible thing to do, no matter what race or ethnicity. You seem hung up on black people. Perhaps you should really do some research on the arrest rates of young black males; creating a large group of felons. Creating felons allows the government and everyone else to legally discriminate against these people for life. Can't get a job, an apartment, a loan. What the hell do you people want anyway?

You don't want them to have birth control, you don't want them to get pregnant, you don't want them to have an abortion, you don't want them to have a baby out of wedlock, you won't want them to have a baby and go on welfare, you lock up all the men and make sure that they can't support their children....and on and on and on and on.
that is the cycle of a sick mind. I'm going to post a letter from the lead pubic defender in Broward County.

Explain that to RealDave. He keeps using banks.

Getting back to the original subject. Did the government involve itself in the housing market or was it a regulated capitalist market?

not really. In Oakland pro-lifers put up billboards stating "black is beautiful" in an attempt to lower abortion rates for blacks in that community. They were forced to take them down. Not much has changed.
Hah! It's not beautiful, it's disgusting! Like they were broiled too long in a brick oven.

Radio Free Europe an American site

CHISINAU -- A small Moldovan political party has begun a petition campaign in support of the country joining a Russia-led customs union.

Igor Dodon, the leader of the Party of Socialists in the Republic of Moldova, says he hopes to gather enough signatures nationwide to force a referendum on whether Moldova should continue its current path of closer ties to the European Union or seek to join the Customs Union of Russia, Belarus, and Kazakhstan.

Dodon -- whose party is an offshoot of Moldova's Communist Party -- told RFE/RL that he wanted the Moldovan government to postpone its signing of an EU Association Agreement, scheduled for June.

He said Russia's annexation of Crimea should not keep Moldova from joining the Customs Union.

In Brussels, Romanian Member of the European Parliament Monica Macovei said signing the Association Agreement would put Moldova inside the EU security zone.

Yes idiot, and we only have troops in about 150 different nations around the world. So that makes us the winner. If that idiot Bush was doing the same thing as Obama you would be singing his praises. So that makes you the idiot, not that we need any further proof. You have no thoughts of your own. You are the basic bagger dummy.

Hi, sweetie, yes of course you can rub olive oil on my generous breasts.
