Is that the same thieving that Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, John Edwards, John Kerry, and Sick Durbin engage in with their offshore investments and sheltering? Please enlighten me on what's wrong with preserving as much money as they can since it's legal and theirs most importantly? If you don't like, blame our legislatures who make our laws.
Secondly, you are dumber than rocks if you believe Mitt Romney pays absolutely no taxes. You do realize that the bulk of his money comes from capital gains right, which is taxed not once, but twice at an alarming rate. He pays more money in taxes than most make in a three lifetimes. He also donates as well, but yet you still want to demonize him. Furthermore, you do realize that the top 1% generate around 40% of the total tax revenue, right? That said, you think a guy of Mitt Romney's wealth would be able to evade taxes is disturbing borderline laughable.
He'd be in jail right now if your claims were true.
That said, most of you liberals need to get over this class warfare crap and demonize those who are successful. Your covetousness is sickening and divisive. You guys need to educate yourselves, come up with a new line, and stop castigating success. Stop listening to the media and think for yourself sometime.
lol! Aren't you the idiot who claimed most liberals don't pay taxes son?

So far, the rock IS smarter than you!!!!

NOW, LET'S TAKE A BRIEF LOOK AT TAX LAW... IF MITT ROMNEY'S MONEY WHICH WE AGREE IS PRIMARILY... WELL, EXCLUSIVELY THE PRODUCT OF DIVIDENDS FROM FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS, IF THAT MONEY NEVER SEES THE LIGHT OF DAY IN THE UNITED STATES AND ONLY RESIDES IN UNREGULATED SHAM BANKS MANY OF WHICH ARE NO MORE THAN A POST OFFICE BOX, THAT IT WILL NEVER BE SUBJECT TO TAXATION SINCE IT DOESN'T TECHNICALLY EXIST AT ALL? YOU DO GET THAT, MUGGLES, DEAR?... THAT'S CALLED TAX EVASION, HONEY, AND IT'S VERY MUCH A FEDERAL CRIME... I DON'T REALLY NEED TO TAKE THE MATTER UP WITH ANY LEGISLATURES, IT WAS RESOLVED A LONG TIME AGO.... ALL I NEED TO DO IS TO SEE THAT THE LAW IS ENFORCED, WHICH WILL BE MY PLEASURE...

YOUR TEDIOUSLY FORMULAIC RESPONSES NOTWITHSTANDING... THANK YOU, I'LL CERTAINLY TAKE THE MATTER OF MR. ROMNEY'S TAXES UP WITH THE VARIOUS STATE LEGISLATURES IN FULL KNOWLEDGE THAT WHEN HE IS ULTIMATELY, FINALLY HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR HIS FRAUD AND THIEVERY HE CAN JUST MOVE TO CANADA AND ALL WILL BE RIGHT WITHE WORLD. THE MAN IS A THIEF, PLAIN AND SIMPLE... AND IT SOUNDS LIKE YOU ARE TOO... I DO ADMIRE THE IRONY, HOWEVER OF A MAN DECRYING THE UTTER USELESSNESS TO THE COUNTRY OF THE 47% PERCENT OF (US?) WHO PAY NO TAXES AND HE'S FOREMOST AMONG THEM.... THAT PART IS ACTUALLY SORT OF AMUSING IN A SICK SORT OF WAY...
THERE IS ONLY ONE REASON TO SHELTER MONEY IN AN OFF SHORE ACCOUNT, DEAR... CORRECTION, DOZENS OF OFF SHORE ACCOUNTS... CAN YOU GUESS WHAT IT MIGHT BE?... G'HEAD GUESS... C'MON, GIVE IT THE OLD COLLEGE TRY...
Please enlighten me on the thievery and fraud Romney has committed otherwise you're just another typical liberal casting aspersions because your covetous? Common sense would tell you he'd be in jail for committing the aforementioned, right? As reiterated before, Romney pays more taxes than you could ever make in thirty lifetimes. However, don't let the facts get in the way of your sheer ignorance.

As for the rest of your class warfare, it doesn't take a genius to figure out why his money is invested elsewhere just like your elitist liberal idols. It's called preserving your assets from an intrusive government that is money hungry with inordinate tax rates. Of course, you don't care because it's not yours and you love telling others how to spend their money. The irony is you'd do the same thing in that position. The only difference is I wouldn't begrudge you for doing something LAWFUL.

Not that it is my place to question a site like "Licensed to Lie", I would rather someone provide a copy of the court document from a reliable source...like the District Court! Don't you find it odd that that case number isn't available through the court?
The document shown on your site is incomplete. There are no printed dates on the document. Only the signature date of an "authorizing officer" acknowledging that the Blackberry (which is cataloged with other obsolete equipment) was removed as scrap because "the value of the property is so little and the cost and handling so great that retention for advertising for sale is clearly not economical." Strange comment given the that the document lists the value of the items as "$502,587.65". IF, and that is a big IF, the document is legitimate the obsolete Blackberry could have sat in storage for a year or more before being scraped. That's how things work in government. The story is only news if we are provided with procurement information that shows the date Lerner was issued a new Blackberry. The truth is in the details and certinly not on a site that has "lie" in it's name.
whatever....

Lois Lerner will eventually learn that orange is the new black.....

That's the thing though. Obama's theme since his inception back in 2008 has been to blame, lie, obfuscate, and cast aspersions against the opposition whenever something doesn't go his way. In fact, I've never seen him take responsibility for any of his foibles or failed policies. If you're against him, then you're a racist, obstructionist, homophobe, and unpatriotic. If you don't like Obamacare, then you must want people to die. In other words, he can't defend his positions, thus he'll lie or demonize anyone who is in his way. He's like a petulant child who takes his toys back.

Just because I named a few rich liberal elites still doesn't negate the fact that most don't pay federal income taxes. Of course, reading comprehension isn't your forte though. Cute as hominem though.

Apparently you severely lack gumption otherwise you'd be able to fathom facile points? In other words, let me know when blacks comprise the same numcer as whites. Hence, proportions. Duh!
African-Americans, who make up 22 percent of the poor, receive 14 percent of government benefits, close to their 12 percent population share.

White non-Hispanics, who make up 42 percent of the poor, receive 69 percent of government benefits – again, much closer to their 64 percent population share.

I have no problem with you chastising white crime since it doesn't apply to me. Unlike most blacks, I'm not tremulous or afraid of the truth. As for your last comment, I guess that makes black folks a bunch of illiterate, fatherless, uneducated, gang bangers, huh?

'Cops' Crew Member Killed by Officers While Show Films Armed Robbery

A staffer on the long-running television crime show Cops was shot and killed Tuesday night by gunfire from local police, while videotaping an armed robbery in progress in Omaha, Nebraska, that also left the suspect dead.

According to the Omaha Police Department, the incident took place at a Wendy's restaurant around 9:20 p.m. CT, in the vicinity of 42nd Street and Dodge.

Initial reports said the TV crew member — now identified by Langley Productions (which produces Cops) as 38-year-old audio technician Bryce Dion — had been critically injured. The news of his death broke Wednesday morning, as first reported by the Omaha World-Herald and local NBC affiliate WOWT. Omaha Police Chief Todd Schmaderer named the victim, along with the suspect Cortez "Traygone" Washington, 32, at a press conference Wednesday afternoon.

Al"7 dead jews" Sharpton is reported to be on his way, BO mulls his options.

If it's tax evasion, then why isn't he in prison, "dear"? While you can sit here and chastise him all you want, Romney hadn't broken any laws and pays more in taxes than you'll ever do. This class warfare never gets old for you, huh?
