Woof, quote John Kerry,
"How do I pay taxes? Let me count the 57 ways.
1-56: Every trick in the book to not pay.
57: Promptly, when they catsup to me".

Only an idiot volunteers to pay taxes they aren't legally obligated to. As if no Republican has ever avoided paying taxes the legal technicalities. What a moron!

STFU you MORON...

You DemoCROOKS seem to have a propensity to evade being taxed, as you DemoCROOKS put it, "our fair share"

Only a (Demo)CRIMINAL tries to evade JUSTICE!

Are YOU ready to foot the bill for Obammy's "Hope and Change"?

Woof, Sheep, You have a habit of making statements that are right on point, and then following them with unsupportable statements.

* "Only an idiot volunteers to pay taxes they aren't legally obligated to". True - Kerry is an idiot.
* "As if no Republican has ever avoided paying taxes...". False - Name a Republican that has successfully avoided paying taxes.

Gilligan is going to have a lot of fun on the Seven Large Barge. Talk about being completely tone deaf! Massachusetts ship builders sure could have used the work.

Personally I think he's a total sucker to pay those taxes. He apparently didn't owe them, and while we all need to pay legally required taxes, there is no reason to pay taxes we can legally avoid.

Plus it's his wife's money anyway, and she has boatloads of it.

Beyond that, who needs a 7 million dollar sailboat? I wonder how many times he'll actually use it.

One other thing,.....who says you have to keep your boat in your home state anyway? If you live in New England and have a condo in Florida you don't have to pay your home state any property taxes, so why should he have to pay on this?

Why aren't these "news hounds" attacking Obummer with as much gusto over his birth certificate?
