    He's always been an asshole --- now he's a tax avoiding asshole. Congress only needs us citizens to pay their taxes... the government folks are a-ok with making us do something they are not willing to do. Look at health care... they wouldn't mandate any of it would apply to them. Rangel's the same way ... the rules don't apply to him.

    Gee... wonder why Congress has an 11% approval rating!

He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    A person elected to not pay a tax they could legally avoid paying? I FOR ONE AM SHOCKED.

    Shockingly...Duece comes out in support of the tax dodging leftist. The same tax dodging leftist that believes everyone ELSE should have to pay more and should pay for all those social programs for their crippled and dependent pets...

    See...its one thing to say...hell no...I earned it (he had to sleep with that ****ing yeti) and Im keeping as much of it as I can as should everyone else. But thats not really his position on rich capitalists, now is it.

    Sources say Isabel sold for something in the neighborhood of $7 million, meaning Kerry saved approximately $437,500 in sales tax and an annual excise tax of about $70,000.
    Wow - How many starving children could that ****ing monstrosity have fed, clothed and provided healthcare for?

    Way to be a hypocrite! These three quotes of his suit this quite nicely:

    I will stand up to the special interests and stand with hardworking families so that we can give America back its future and its ideals.
    Real Democrats don't abandon the middle class.
    You're not going to have to look for us on vacation. You're going to find us working for America.
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    "Anyone may arrange his affairs so that his taxes shall be as low as
    possible; he is not bound to choose that pattern which best pays the
    treasury. There is not even a patriotic duty to increase one's taxes.
    Over and over again the Courts have said that there is nothing sinister
    in so arranging affairs as to keep taxes as low as possible. Everyone
    does it, rich and poor alike and all do right, for nobody owes any
    public duty to pay more than the law demands."

    Hey, Kerry found a legal way not to pay taxes... Good on him. I support such actions.

    HOWEVER, being who, and what he is... the hypocrisy of the moment is just too... sweet to pass up mocking him over.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    I found this story almost as amusing as the one about Rahm Emanuel and other Democrats gifting their own houses and residences to their own personal charities, this little ploy means that as charities they are not eligible for Property taxes on these Houses and residences.
