    The last year I lived there I was like 12 man. How can I take responsibilty for it? lol

    Anyways, I go up to Ohio for a few reasons still, usually the arts & entertainment, education stuff, as well as Kenwood Town Centre, IKEA, and Jungle Jim's. I suggest that if you have never been to Jungle Jim's you go it is badass.

In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    and yet some here on this forum claim that the lefties really don't despise the successful

    yeah so its smart to treat someone making 200K different than someone making 100K but its ok to treat someone making 275K the same as someone making 400 million

    yeah that's brilliant

    in reality everyone should pay the same rate than these idiotic distinctions wouldn't exist

    I find it funny that so many liberals lionize hypocrisy

    but then again being loved by the masses and getting power from that is about all that is left for him

    not at all

    I find it amusing that people like you cyber slurp him because he whines that the rich don't pay enough taxes while he uses his immense power to structure his compensation to avoid paying taxes.

    I guess you cannot see who that is rather hypocritical

    Sorry, did not do Goetta. I will check it out on the net.
