    You and other warriors of the right made a big deal about it. And continue to do so. And I suspect will continue to do so.
    Sorry, you can't put the toothpaste back in the tube. You were the first one to use the word "race" in this thread. (See #1274) Congratulations on your accomplishment.

Why...just the other day, I was reading through the posts in the "______________ (congressman...Democrat) only pays 15% in taxes" thread and...oh...wait...never mind...that NEVER happens. the only time you very very very concerned democrats give a **** about who pays what is when it is a republican.

    Either you are attempting to set a new standard for being obtuse or have set a new standard for intellectual fraud.

    Here is what Turtle said in 1267

    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
    black/white = RACE
    black/white = RACE

    This is getting beyond amazing.

    I am willing to bet a lot of money that if Turtle made a post using the analogy of horses, and I said it was out of place, it never would have been mentioned again. But because the warriors of the far right are hyper sensitive and are on a mission to remove any discussion of race from the lexicon, they jumped on this with bared talons and fangs dripping with vitriolic acid.

    And continue to do so peppered with enough intellectual fraud to make an honest man gag.

    Do you?
    Do you want to raise taxes? If so you are part of the problem, and therefore responsible.

    And did you not say that despite leaving the next generation $16 trillion in debts (and counting) the government should also tax whatever inheritance they might get?

    You are part of the problem, mate, and therefore responsible.
