Is it the bad economy, obamacare, or just tired and weary taxpayers that is the reason for the slowdown..........


"According to the analytics firm, traffic for the week ended Dec. 22—which included the crucial final weekend before Christmas—was down 21.2 percent year over year. The first two weeks of December saw double-digit decreases, which trailed a 4 percent decline over Black Friday weekend, it said."

Would you get back in the barn and check Rudolph and Blitzen. We don't have time for you to lolly gag, they both have colds and you just may have to run by CRR and pick up a couple of stand-in's for later. Do I have to do everything???

I just wish he could explain how individuals live within their means when we as people are carrying record debt, just like gubmint.
This poster is quickly becoming the King of Straw Man arguments...

BTW, worry about your own debt, I have none and haven't had any for several years. It's called living within YOUR means and doing what is necessary to make sure you do so.

Perhaps this poster needs to contact that Dave Ramsey guy to learn how to manage money.

Okay secret's out, but don't tell any of the little munchkins. They'd never leave me alone, I'm not really married to him but he can't take care of himself so somebody has to do it. The wife left him forever ago. Such a sad situation indeed. Don't tell anyone but he's senile.

<quoted text>
... know that if I was rich enough I could pay almost all income tax using the capital gains tax loophole. I also know I pay a lesser percentage of tax than you do at McDonalds. I take advantage to all the tax write offs available, thanks to the business I have. Because of the business I am in my accountant takes advantage of what the very rich have put in place for themselves.... From most of what you say my taxes must be a whole lot more complicated than yours, but that's no surprise now is it.
Then you wonder off on the fair tax ride, again the resulting legislation when the 1% get their way as they always do will result in very little if any difference....To many people make a living with the current tax system, to many jobs to bet on the unknown. To many politicians are lawyers and get "donations" from the 1% who have no interest in the fair tax experiment. I know more about how things work in the real world than you ever will. I know you are an arrogant ass, even more clueless than the so called clueless and uneducated you love to put down. Education in todays world is not a e-ticket to success, just look at the current crop of billionaires, then look at fools like you.
"takes advantage of what the very rich have put in place for themselves"

Wealth envy rears it's ugly head again. BTW, is there anything in tax law that is legal for the rich that is NOT legal for others?

"I know that if I was rich enough I could pay almost all income tax using the capital gains tax loophole."

If my aunt had balls, she'd be my uncle.

BTW, salaries and wages are not taxed at the capital gains rate. But, if you were rich enough, you wouldn't have to work. But, it would be difficult getting the interest income and short terms gains to be covered under capital gains treatment, though.

"From most of what you say my taxes must be a whole lot more complicated than yours, but that's no surprise now is it."

First of all, I'm ASSUMING that was a question, although you didn't put a "?" at the end of it.

Second, you might be correct, but probably not. My return and schedules for 2012 (printed out by TurboTax) was 135 pages. Doesn't really matter though. It's not real complicated for me, obviously you couldn't do it, you paid someone...

"To many people make a living with the current tax system, to many jobs to bet on the unknown. To many politicians are lawyers and get "donations" from the 1% who have no interest in the fair tax experiment."

Is it "to" or "too"? One would think as bright as you claim to be, you could spell better.

There you go with Straw Man arguments again. I have never said I thought the FairTax would be passed.

"I know more about how things work in the real world than you ever will."

Possibly. Possibly not. Being that you know very little about my background, education and experience, it's kind of a stretch to say such a thing. I don't care one way or the other...

"Education in todays world is not a e-ticket to success, just look at the current crop of billionaires, then look at fools like you."

It's always funny, the people with little or no education always taking shots at the educated. Education envy, somewhat similar to wealth envy.

"I know you are an arrogant ass, even more clueless than the so called clueless and uneducated you love to put down."

Yes, some could consider me an arrogant ass. Do I care what you or someone on an anonymous board thinks of me? Seriously? At least I know what I'm clueless about. I post about things I know and am interested in (like the FairTax and taxes). Your should try it, you won't get embarrassed so much.

What I find amusing is that (although I don't reply often to your posts) it appears some of our beliefs are pretty consistent, yet when you get called out on your lack of knowledge about the FairTax, you become hostile...

Sad, but not surprising...

I must go and get the old geezer something to eat. I'm working so hard on his weight problem. It's an asparagus only diet. Shoot the old guy wouldn't know the difference between between a rat's tail or asparagus anyway. That makes my job a lot easier. He just complains about always leaving the table hungry but what can I do. His cholestrol is 500. It's awful. Ya'll have a Merry Christmas. I'll get Santa off the ground somehow, if I have to shoot him out of a cannon.

Lord, help me. I've been telling you for years I'm not your wife and you aren't ever going to be doing that again.(Pssssssst for the rest of you readers. They don't make enough Viagra to solve that problem). Santa, now it's nap time. I'll wake you when I have your special green steak done.(See how I have to humor him. It's pitiful).

To all you readers. Watch over him. I'm gonna be gone for while. He has a tendancy to wonder around outside with nothing but his undies on if I don't watch him. Take care of him while I'm gone. He's a real treasure, ya know. Later

That's right. I also walk into oncoming traffic while waving a flag that says "Undecided" as far as political affiliation. Now, I require a 45 pound turkey, 300 pounds of green bean casserole, 40 shells of stuffing, some of that canned jellied cranberry sauce, and about 3 dozen pumpkin pies. Oh yeah, and some new underpants, so I may partake of the holiday cheer of scaring approximately 47 senior citizens while waiting in line at the grocery store to purchase numerous beers.

He's having one of his more lucid moments but still in the past when the Misses was around.. The underpants he's talking about are really his. He has one of those new walk in bath tubs. Still I have to help him get undressed sometimes and get in the tub. He's just like a child. He just loves those bubbles. Anyway once in awhile we do have those little skd marks but I don't mind. A nice long washing with some bleach and their like new all over again. Poor old sweet thing. I do love him so. LMAO!!

I gotta go folks. Getting ready for my kids to come over. Thanks for the fun. Thanks Santa for playing along. Hope you enjoyed it as much as I did and all you other people too.

Please remember our military men and women around the world today that will not be with their families. Pray for their safe return to the arms of those that love them most. Don't forget to keep our military families in your prayers this most Holy of seasons. They're sacrifice is the greatest sacrifice a family can make. We owe them so much, we will never be able to repay them.

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU ALL AROUND THE WORLD.

LOL!! I was just jumping in to tell you guys one more thing. My Dad & two uncles served in WW2. My Dad was 28 when he joined. Old for back then. My sister trained in Tx. She was a nurse stationed in Hawaii and we missed her terribly at Christmas. Many I knew went to Viet Nam. Some died. Some just came back terribly damaged, but I always loved them as I love all those serving now. So I know a little about how those that serve and those that wait at home feel. Just know I'm thinking of you this Christmas season. In fact I think pray for you every day. You are the best of the best whichever branch you may serve in.
Good Bye and GOD BLESS!!!!
