    Re: Obama Blames himself for mishandling Daschle

    Just heard the Franken owes $72,000 in back taxes. This is getting ridiculous, these sleezebags who wants US to pay more taxes, to be patriots, are tax swindlers and traitors!

    Not paying taxes makes you a traitor? Isn't that what Republicans/Conservatives keep saying they want to do less off? Pay taxes I mean. I'll let you think about the 5 finger slap you just shoved up your ass.

    To refocus the question: Tax problems aside, do you think that Daschle's payments for what was essentially lobbying for the health industry were problematic, given that he would be regulating those same companies?
    Yes, it was problematic.

    Now he's nominated another political loon for Deputy Attorney General, someone who represented Playboy, said that parental notification prior to abortion was a burden on the teenage girl, and that European standards should be applied to the death penalty.

    By this logic, supporting drug legalization is the same as trafficking heroin.

    How do any of those three items make him a loon?

    It is.

    European standards? It should be abolished.

    American is saying that not paying the taxes that you're legally obligated to pay is "treason" or whatever.

    That's not what conservatives advocate for - they advocate for the tax laws to be changed so that it's legal to pay less taxes.

    Similarly, drug dealers just refuse to follow the drug laws, while supporters of legalization want the laws themselves to be changed.
