    Man this political stuff is confusing.
    The Leftists don't mind scoffing at Romney for donating money to his kids.

    So your response is to viciously attack him for his political positions while defending the actions of your allies who do the exact same thing.

    My allies don't want to jack my taxes up while doing everything possible to avoid paying taxes themselves

    We get it perfectly that you rip into him because he is your political enemy while you defend others who achieve the same ends with tax code manipulation.

    Ah - so this is not about Buffet - its about Turtle. This is about your taxes and what is good for you.

    Thank you for making that clear.

    It is at least consistent that your motivations for all the positions you take on tax issues has not changed one bit over the years.

    Buffett supporters seem to miss the crux of the matter, it's all about Buffett's "Do as I say not as I do" attitude.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Do you think ignoring the obvious and patent points others make is a sound DEBATE tactic?

    OTHERS DO NOT CALL FOR TAXES ON THE RICH to be higher while using their power to avoid lots of taxes

    I guess you didn't understand my point about that asshole's oozing hypocrisy

    he wants others-those not powerful enough to structure their compensation into the lowest possible form of taxable income-to pay more while he pays himself a salary that is below what a GS-15 public sector worker earns

    Re: Buffett Gives Kids Foundations $3 billion

    I have no problem with how rich Buffett is, or how much he leaves his kids, or how much he gives to charities, or thus how much tax he doesn't pay .. even if I "should" have a problem with it.

    What I would have a problem with would be whether the charities he supports are to help U.S. citizens, many more of whom since The Great Recession are suffering thanks to the so-called "global economy" ..

    .. Or whether he's frittering it away on trying to impossibly rescue the unrescuable in foreign lands, like Bill Gates does, when so many Americans continue to so greatly suffer economically, health-wise, etc., struggling to survive in the face of being sub-prime-securities betrayed by similarly-statured fellow Americans.

    We need to keep American dollars here working for the benefit of Americans, and not inflate our currency by dumping it into the the black holes of countries that will never really lift a finger to try to solve their own problems .. except to extend an upward palm in expectation of charity.
    You don't trust Trump? Well, there's only one way to leverage him to do what's economically right for us all: Powerful American Political Alliance. Got courage?! .. and a mere $5.00?
