You have your problems and gay children had theirs. If those children had the ability to understand your problems they would most likely empathize, but apparantly you wouldn't with theirs.

Bullcrap. If your taxes are too high, perhaps you should take the matter to your city, county, and state. That's where most of your taxes are collected, not the Federal. I haven't paid Federal taxes in over 5 years, but I've paid a bundle in sales tax, property tax, personal property tax, and other "user fees" to the city, county, and state. That's who you should be targeting, but I guess it's easier to just blame someone who has no control over your taxes.

I don't need a job. I have Soc. Sec., pension, and a sizable amount in savings. That savings comes from many years of working, investing, and learning the tax code, so I didn't have to pay a lot of taxes then, or now. Perhaps instead of complaining here on Topix, you should learn the tax code, so you, also, could avoid paying them. It's really not difficult, just a lot of reading.

In other words you mooched off the government your whole life. Being you're a queer, that doesn't surprise me in the least.

No. I paid taxes. Just not as much as the average Ronson, because I had the smarts to do a little research. Well, the smarts, and a job which required me to know the tax code. So instead of complaining, why not go on-line and do a little research? Or is that too much work, when you could be on here complaining?

How is paying the legal amount of owed taxes mooching?

I mean, if you buy an item at a store, and there is a 20% off coupon in the aisle tag below it and you do not use it...that's just stupid.

Of course, it is sad to watch Obama's daily rants dividing America and diminishing the American family but we are pitiful. Obama is just taking advantage of our status as Less Than previous generations of American citizens and parents which we earned when he was re=elected.

But not for the suckers who pay the freight. they are slowly learning though. they will learn the "system". and there will be equality one way or the other. If it is the gutter level, well so be it.
