    Ever been audited?
    Maybe you should be.
    How would you do?

    I got audited 2 years ago. Had to write a check for $600. That's not bad, by comparison.

    Then, that's where you have to stop. It's illegal to single people out, just because their excercising their civil rights.

    I'd do just fine. The blood-suckers won't find anything on me. But what a shame you regard being audited as punitive.

    Count me among those who would love to see the fed bureaucracy undergo liposuction--and suck out all those bloated layers of high 5-figure pencil-sharpeners and redundancies. State too.

    So would you feel better if we were taxed more?
    I would feel better if tax cheats were all caught, penalized and forced to pay what they owe. If that were to happen, taxes could go down for honest Americans.
    How about you hfd ? Do you advocate tax cheating?

    I don't, and I never said it was or should be. I view being audited as being investigatory. Investigations should be carried out where they are likely to find nefarious tax practices. That would be within organizations that call for cutting all taxes and a starving of the US government.
    Blood suckers are leaches and parasites. Organisms that take from a host and give nothing in return... you know like American billionaires who make their money in the US then hide their holdings in off shore tax havens to avoid paying their fair share.

    I don't "have to stop"...

    Ask yourself; If an Islamic extremist was exercising his 1st amendment right to call for the death of all infidels and death to America...would you consider it illegal for the Federal Department of Homeland Security to investigate that persons private activities and who he associates with?
    I wouldn't.

    From a legal standpoint...it is.

    Apples and oranges, bro. Making specific death threats is illegal.

    I think Progressives might disagree with you on many levels.[/QUOTE]

    That's ridiculous too. First off Clinton engineered the largest redistribution known to man when he appointed Criminal Democrat Politicians to run Fannie and Freddie and lowered the GSE's Capital requirements and their standards down to nearly nothing through his Home-ownership Strategy.

    Your'e blaming the dysfunctional effects of Obama's policies on the Republicans ????....." "We were somewhere around Barstow on the edge of the desert when the drugs began to take hold...."

    The house considers an abortion bill to be a job bill, so it's not surprising all those <ahem> so called job bills are sitting in the senate.

    There are FORTY jobs bills from the House in the Senate. Forty...

    LOL !!! Uhm..no. When your'e the President and your'e incompetent, there is only one level. As for Obama he's exceptionally incompetent. He should have never stepped up and taken the candidacy. What ? Did he think he was competing on American Idol ?
