Do you remember telling us that there was no national tax becofe 1913?
I do.
PS:
(quote)
1862
President Lincoln signed into law a revenue-raising measure to help pay for Civil War expenses. The measure created a Commissioner of Internal Revenue and the nation's first income tax. It levied a 3 percent tax on incomes between $600 and $10,000 and a 5 percent tax on incomes of more than $10,000.
You cited creation of a commissioner, not the Internal Revenue Service. Your claim was that Lincoln created "The IRS".

You are wrong.

On July 9, 1953, the Secretary of the Treasury, G. K. Humphrey, created the Internal Revenue Service; Treasury Order 150-06, without the approval of Congress. Lincoln was long-dead.

First you were wrong. After corrected, now you're just a liar.

Funny how the hostages were released by Iran literally as Reagan was giving his ingratiation and that that was followed by weapons being sold by Israel to Iran.
Funny how that is.
Take your statins, fat boy, and stop drinking.
That's your argument...something is "funny"?

You have no argument.

Tell the doctor you need to change your meds.
Gorbachev's papers prove it, Commie-Lover.

In talks with Reagan, he thought he had to convince Reagan to drop SDI, or Soviet military spending would break his country.

The liberal American media sided with Gorby.

Reagan backed him down anyway. No more USSR.

Sorry 'bout your luck, Pinko.

You told us that there was no national income tax before 1913, fatty.

And you told us that "round" wasn't used to describe 3 dimensional objects.

And the *QUOTE* and the *CITE* I provided came from the IRS website.

Take your statins, fat boy.

But stop mixing them with other drugs, you are hallucinating.

You told your boyfriend he wouldn't get gonorrhea if he used a condom but you were wrong then too, fat boy.

You also told us that round couldn't be used to describe 3D objects.

The office of Commissioner of Internal Revenue was created by an Act of Congress on July 1, 1862. The Commissioner is appointed by the President with the advice and consent of the Senate. With no set tenure, Commissioners served as long as they and the President chose.

Investopedia explains 'Revenue Act Of 1862'
The Bureau of Internal Revenue is known today as the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). The name was changed to emphasize a greater focus on serving the public rather than merely collecting taxes. Today the IRS is a massive bureau, in 2004 the agency collected over $2 trillion in revenue processing more that 224 million tax returns.

In talks with Reagan,
Funny how the biggest boondoggle in the history of mankind can be as successful by anyone except for the defense contractors who made hundreds of millions of dollars on it.

The only time you aren't lying, fat boy, is when you have your boyfriend sausage pressed up against your tonsils.

Explains the long periods of silence.

Gorbachev was convince- correctly- that Reagan had to be absolutely stone in thinking the SDI would EVER work and made no attepmt to match it, knowing it was a complete waste of money.

That what happened in the real world, fat boy.

But then, fatty, you told us round could not be used to describe 3D objects.

You do know that you come across as a maniacal OCD lunatic with your infatuation with others body parts as well as being a total a-hole. So far you cower away from anyone that challenges you to take a stand on a question, so with that you are nothing but a troll that for the most part I ignore.

You mean like the way I cower away from the NotBots that challenged me on my stand- that the United Kingdom is a monarchy? Or that the United Kingdom requires collective worship in tax funded schools? Or I cower away from my position: the monarch of the UK appoints most of the Parliament? Or that I cower away from my statement that the KINGDOM of Sweden is a monarchy? Or I cower away from the position that the first national tax was in 1862, not 1913 as fat boy insists, or that I cower away from the IRS having it's beginning with the appointment made by Abraham Lincoln? Or that I cower away from the fact- my position- that Americans captured the U505, not the Brits as Packy insists?

Pray tell: what exactly have I backed off of?

It's for you to prove, SuperFAG.
Like your continual dodging of declaring whether Britain is a Constitutional monarchy or not, your refusal to answer a simple question is more than enough to demonstrate that you got the quote from Wikipedia.

Thus making you a hypocrite when you ran away from my Wiki citations.

What you seem unable to comprehend is choosing to run away from questions does not help your cause, manchild. Your silence speaks volumes.

We can start with your statement that THERE WERE NO OTHER WEB RESOURCES OUTSIDE OF WIKIpedia.
We can start by addressing what was actually asked which was where you got the quote from.

We "can" meaning of course there isn't a possibility on earth you have it in you admit you were wrong, you sausage sucking Momma's boy.
So says the hypocrite who, when confronted about his claim of a Facebook link being Encyclopedia Britannica, simply said "doesn't matter".

Let's play Barefoot rules:

Doesn't matter.

OH! I jump in when it becomes fun to see you squirm. On other forums you claim that I was an internet bully because I wanted an answer to a question that you never would answer.

The complexity of some questions draws more than a yes or no at times, but you seem to refuse to see anything but black and white. I can see why you might be a lonely person.

Now I have really tried to see things from your point of view, but I could not get my head that far up my ass.
