Yes we need to collect taxes but to put some one in jail for not paying a bill are you nuts? I say the government needs to collect over due taxes with a civil remedy. Go to court and win then the tax payer cannot get a job until he works out a repay plan with the IRS.

WHY DO WE GO AFTER THESE SO CALLED TAX EVADERS WITH MORE ZEAL AND DILIGENCE THAN WE USE TO PROSECUTE TERRORISTS THAT WOULD KILL AND MAIM AMERICANS?

Use the "Rangel Rule" -- Just pay the back tax, no interest, no penalties, no jail time. This rule named for Charles Rangel (D-NY). Notice the (D), which stands for Democrat.

Look, Obama's cabinet failed to pay taxes. Others include Tom Dashcle, former Speaker of the House (D). Yes, the (D) DOES stand for Democrat.

Why should there be a separate Law of the Commoners and a more lenient Law for the Lords?

Does the Constitution grant more rights to those that Legislate over the minions that are Legislated to?

I say let have this guy pay taxes, and let him go.

Shelio is NOT the happy, goofy, playful guy you see on tv in real life.

I have no idea at this point whether or not he's guilty of these tax charges, but I'd like to see him thrown in prison just on general principle.

Nice try...unfortunately non-English speakers never make the mistakes you are attempting to make; you are failing miserably at deceiving the readers. If you really want to know how they write in English, go teach English as a second language.

By the way, before you start posting your vile, the school does not permit illegals to attend classes. Only legal residents area allowed to attend.
