    Hijacking? Did you not read the OP? Check the last sentence.

    Hijacking the conversation requires that a new topic be introduced. Did we introduce race as a condition for prison time?

    good thing he takes up the liberal position on things.

    If he dare speak out on an issue that conservatives would agree with, he would be getting the Bill Cosby treatment in no time

    I think he was referring to all the preceding sentences that make up the substance of the OP.
    But with regard to that there really isn't much to say. That Sharpton is a liberal hypocrite who doesn't pay his 'fair share' doesn't come as a surprise to me.

    Another politician does not pay his taxes? I need to lie down.

    We're to debate with the author of a non-controversial article who's not here? Are we to argue that Sharpton's situation is fine?

    Sorry, but the only thing to debate was the race baiting BS victim card presented in the OP. If you don't like that, perhaps you could advise him to not spew such crap.

    That old fart Sharpton isn't a politician. He's a professional rabble-rouser who doesn't pay his taxes, doesn't pay his rent, doesn't pay his hotel expenses or doesn't pay anything, anywhere, anytime to anybody.

    And that $4.75 million taxes he hasn't paid surely would pay for a lot of welfare for his poor mistreated black hero worshipers.

    Wesley Snipes? If prison is good enough for Wesley it's damn sure good enough for that PoS Sharpton.

    I see you have been following the Reverend and know about him. You have him pretty well pegged.

    This, however, is ludicrous:

    Or better still...go to PRISON for income tax evasion like we "crackers" do.

    Why aren't you mentioning Richard Hatch going to prison for tax evasion? Why are you bringing up Wesley Snipes as if it's good that he went to prison? Is it good to you because Wesley Snipes is black?

    Maybe that rabble-rouser, Al Sharpton should spend more time paying his damn taxes and less time causing more trouble around the United States...taxes that are being DENIED TO THE "POOR" because Al refuses to pay up. This according to the New York Times.

    Mr. Sharpton has regularly sidestepped the sorts of obligations most people see as inevitable, like taxes, rent and other bills. Records reviewed by The New York Times show more than $4.5 million in current state and federal tax liens against him and his for-profit businesses.

    And though he said in recent interviews that he was paying both down, his balance with the state, at least, has actually grown in recent years. His National Action Network appears to have been sustained for years by not paying federal payroll taxes on its employees.

    With the tax liability outstanding, Mr. Sharpton traveled first class and collected a sizable salary, the kind of practice by nonprofit groups that the United States Treasury’s inspector general for tax administration recently characterized as “abusive,” or “potentially criminal” if the failure to turn over or collect taxes is willful.

    Mr. Sharpton and the National Action Network have repeatedly failed to pay travel agencies, hotels and landlords. He has leaned on the generosity of friends and sometimes even the organization, intermingling its finances with his own to cover his daughters’ private school tuition.


    Or better still...go to PRISON for income tax evasion like we "crackers" do.
    Ah Tax Evasion, the thing that rips apart criminal empires built upon hate!!! Hey, if it worked for Al Capone....
    There's no greater irony than a Trump supporter pointing out hypocrisy; Unless it's Trump himself.
