    A word comes to mind right at this moment. What is it? Oh yeah...wow! That's the word I was looking for.
    You can use an online dictionary if you do not have one in the house.

    btw - Turtle IS HERE TO DEFEND HIMSELF so your point - if you had one - is ridiculous and without merit.

    Yes Turtle, I have understood for a long long time now that your decisions about the tax code and what is good for America and 311 million people are based solely on what is good for you personally. Low taxes for Turtle = a very good thing and you get behind it regardless of the principle or scheme behind it. Higher taxes for Turtle - evil and bad and you slam it regardless of the principle or scheme behind it. The plethora of posts you have made on this subject have been published by me and others many many times and they are clear and unmistakable evidence of our motivations.
    You just don't get it

    I rip Buffett because he whines that the tax code favors the rich and should be changed so the rich pay more while using his power to pay as little as possible

    You just don't see that point because it destroys your inane rants about my "allies"

    I am for paying a corrupt bloated and malignant federal government as little as possible. Especially one run by a parasiter like Obama

    I see your motivation perfectly. You see Buffet as a political enemy so you attack him. You see other wealthy people like Romney as a political ally so you defend him when he manipulates the tax code to his own personal benefit. For you, it is not about the mean nor the ends but who is going to benefit Turtle above all others.

    Its perfectly clear and your own posts have made it so.

    More personal attacks from the Libbos. No surprise there.

    So, when you attack people for political reasons, that's...what?

    Its amazing how he evades the obvious point. the rich republicans are not calling for taxes to be hiked on other people like them while using power most others don't have to avoid taxes.

    Evasion is his main posting strategy, the second being ignoring what others have posted

    Who is being personally attacked? Nobody on my part. I am attacking the hypocritical actions of people who themselves are engaged in personal attacks.

    The Buffett rule won't hurt Buffett, he has enough money to either absorb the tax loss or pay accountants to take a lesser loss, and either way it hurts people trying to get to the higher levels of wealth accumulation. Worse than that, it has the effect of keeping other's personal wealth down which takes away investor dollars from those trying to make it.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    But that is just a smoke screen and not at all the main point. The key thing here is that far too many people in this thread have ripped into one person for doing much the same thing that other people do in terms of manipulating the tax code. When it is their political ally - they excuse and defend it. When it is their political enemy - they condemn and ridicule it.

    It is the worst sort of hypocrisy and it is happening right in this very thread by posters.

    It is ironic that those same people point the finger of hypocrisy at Buffet while engaging in their own form of hypocrisy right here. Its like two vegas hookers screaming vile names at each other claiming they are each the more virtuous than the other.

    Everybody lies...
    Foundation =/= Kids.

    Furthermore, there is probably a salary cap for his kids. Merely because your foundation has lots of money doesn't mean you get paid exorbitant amounts.
