    You would not know a race card if an entire deck of them fell upon you. I played no race card and I challenge and defy you to show where I did.

    Go back and see who introduced RACE into this discussion of taxation. But since it was one of your fellow Right Libertarians you play ostrich, hide your head in the sand, and pretend otherwise preferring to attack me when I said it had no place here.

    Why can't you be honest and recognize that it was Turtle who introduced race where it had no place?

    Don't feel bad Turtle. Earlier I was accused of 'attempting to play God' and 'social engineer' for no unsubstantiated reason...musta got up 'crabby' from napping during the Florida debate (which I have NO IDEA why he would watch)...

    post 1267 from Turtle

    its like saying ten black murderers received much higher sentences than 10 white drunk drivers. absolute truth but then claiming blacks are treated more harshly than whites by the justice system would be clearly dishonest
    Where was race mentioned before this in the discussion about taxation?

    Lets try this again since everyone else understands it

    you and Teamosil and Catawba are comparing working people and rich investors

    you claimed that some comparisons are truthful such as claims that the TOTAL tax bill some middle class people pay is a higher percentage of their AGI than the single tax (federal income) that SOME rich investors pay

    that might be truthful but its a dishonest comparison

    So I chose a topic that is common for us who are lawyers-claims that black defendants are treated more harshly than white ones

    so I used as an absurd a hypothetical as the comparison of all taxes vs one tax-blacks who commit murder vs white miscreants

    its pathetic to try to attack this analogy which is an accurate description of both a truthful scenario and an idiotic comparison as what you all have done with total tax bills vs one of many taxes applied to investors

    One Right Libertarian giving aid and comfort and support to another Right Libertarian. Helen Keller could see this coming. And she is both dead and blind.

    Your intent came across loud and clear Turtle. Loud and clear. Your point was unmistakable.

    And who exactly is EVERYONE? You like to take the opinion of one or two of your fellow believers and pretend that the entire universe is standing behind you.

    That's absolutely ridiculous. I've seen Turtle jump on Stormfront supporters harder than anyone. I think accusing someone of bringing up race inappropriately, when it clearly was not done by most accepted standards is certainly playing the race card.

    See the problem is that you were looking for it. I saw Turtle making an analogy about two groups. YOU read into his adjectives describing the groups as racist. AND since you noticed it and made point of it THAT is playing the race card…Further you take the sanctimonious position to deem where ‘it has no place’. Again another sign of a race card player..
