    Or not.

    This is more of a penalty than a tax, like speeding tickets. Taxes are levied based on one's economic condition, whether or not you have a certain income, possess certain capital, or bought a particular item. Penalties and fees are for not living up to your duties and legal obligations.

    Funny, I always thought that I had a legal obligation to pay my taxes, and politicians are always mentioning that it's my duty to pay taxes.

    Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord? And who shall stand in his holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to what is false, and does not swear deceitfully. Psalm 24
    "True law is right reason in agreement with nature . . . Whoever is disobedient is fleeing from himself and denying his human nature [and] will suffer the worst penalties . . ." - Cicero

    Speeding tickets are a tax.

    Once upon a time, being president required some degree of qualifications and a resume of experience to point to.

    Obama never so much as sponsored a bill. He never ran a company, served in the military, governed a state, worked in a foreign relations post.....nothing.

    He basically ran a library on the south side of Chicago, served two years as a Senator, most of which he spent campaigning for president.

    He was elected because he was black and cooler than McCain.

    I am always amused by people who require a link to the OBVIOUS.

    Tell me something, what part of managing one of the largest Governments and most powerful country on the globe suggests that a candidate for the job should NOT require "some degree of qualifications and a resume of experience to point to?"

    Do tell me what FACTS are required to argue that to be President one should at least have some qualifications/experience for the job? I am curious what facts you think one needs to state the OBVIOUS.

    Are you now going to argue that one requires no qualifications to become leader of the most powerful country on the globe and that the only way you will believe it is if you have a link? You’re kidding me right?


    Carry on; as usual you offer nothing but nonsensical BS.
