Sep 21, 2012 Full story: WHBF-TV Rock Island 35

More than 100 protests against the natural gas drilling process known as fracking are planned across the globe on Saturday, and organizers are using an overly simplified message to draw people out and spur outrage.

It is interesting that the libs gloss over the fact that Obama stuck to his story about the Embassy attack even though he looks like he was uninformed.

Now that Romney has released the tax info and gave millions to charity without claiming it on his taxes, they insinuate that his tax documents are somehow hinky even though the IRS has said that they aren't.

As Newt Gingrich put it, "I don't know of any American president who has had a Swiss bank account." But Mitt Romney also has accounts in the tax havens of Luxembourg, Bermuda, and the Cayman Islands. The Cayman Islands have a bank secrecy law so strong that a person can be jailed for up to four years, just for asking about account information. Mitt's desire for secrecy is so great that one time he neglected to include a Swiss bank account on required financial disclosure forms. Perhaps, it was because the Swiss account constituted a bet against the U.S. dollar, something no presidential candidate would want to reveal. When asked about it, Romney's campaign spokeswoman, Andrea Saul, said that the candidate's failure to include his Swiss account in the financial disclosures were merely a "trivial inadvertent issue." From 1984 to 1999, taxpayers were allowed to put just $2,000 per year into a tax-free I.R.A., and $30,000 annually into a different kind of plan he may have used. Given these annual contribution ceilings, how can his I.R.A. possibly contain up to $102 million, as his financial disclosures now suggest? As Mitt said "I pay all the taxes that are legally required, not a dollar more." However as Lee Sheppard, a contributing editor at the trade publication "Tax Notes" said, "When you are running for president, you might want to err on the side of overpaying your taxes, and not chase every tax gimmick that comes down the pike." Mitt Romney has not acted as a model for all of us, the way a presidential candidate should?

Interesting too. Obama has increased his income over 10 fold since becoming president. Not bad for an ACORN advisor. Another term and he'll easily surpass Romney for income.
Hardly, Obama has'nt had the oppurtunity and desire to screw over people, as much as Mitt has...Mitt was actually the leader of the Good Ol Boys(Bain) Club, and plundering other american's dreams, is much more profitable than helping organizing neighborhoods...Hell, Mitt's raiding of those companie's employee's pension funds would have been a gold mine, in itself.....

Funny shit right there. Obama screwed the entire country, every single tax payer. Romney a few of those evil corporations and Obama has told us corporations are not people.$16TRILLION in debt and climbing fast under Obama, but don't worry his 'investors' will pay it off for him, in a generation or two.

9% effective tax rate after the amended return in November, to claim all the deductions.

Bishop Rmoney didn't take all his deductions, even though he said he wouldn't be qualified for the job of president if he didn't take all his legal deductions.

He overpaid his taxes by $500,000!!!!! to look like he doesn't really pay a 9% effective tax rate.

NOW that is SMART.

Everyone cares about how much Romney pays in taxes but not the fact that Romney's 1.94 million in taxes was spent in 3 seconds by the federal government.
