    Well ain't you the wealthy little liberal, champ. Tax shelter?

    You were the one who argued that the rich should pay their fair share. I agreed.
    And they have been...except for assholes like Al Sharpton, who is the subject of this thread.

    Yet, MSNBC marches on with him.
    I usually watch his show at night because it makes me laugh. And fall off my chair. I can't wait to see if the good Reverend will talk about himself not paying taxes like he constantly talked (falsely) about Romney not paying taxes.

    I think he's perfect for MSNBC.

Anyways, I looked up any news on Bill Cosby from 2000 to 2006 and most of the news articles on it are either no longer in existence in their native sites or they're on secondary sources:
    I’m not sure what you are blabbering on about.

    This is a non-starter. Statute of limitations makes these PR problems, not legal problems.

    His PR problems began after making his infamous pound cake speech (which was dead on accurate)

    Bill Cosby hasn't been a relevant star in Hollywood in like 20+ years. Also, there are far more believable targets than an old decrepit man. Either way, your apologetics aren't helping his case. Essentially, you're regurgitating every line thrown out by pass offenders.

    What the hell was Cosby doing in her apartment? Did he kick the door in? This latest bunch is just bull****.

    Besides this thread is about Sharpton OWING $4.5 million in unpaid, delinquent taxes.
    I thought the thread was about how black people don't go to jail for not paying taxes?

    That would be true if multiple women hadn't come forward before he made the speech. Either way, what relevance does the speech have to being accused of sexual assault? Did Bill Clinton's position on women's rights have anything to do with the accusations lobbed at him after he became president? Not really. Your attempt to downplay sexual assault is noted though. Do you believe rich and powerful men are above question when it comes to sexual assault? Do you believe time is relevant when dealing with it? You don't have to answer those questions. You've already demonstrated you're willing to be an apologist for sexual assault. However, please answer these questions:

    If it was proven that Bill Cosby assaulted some of these women, would it make a difference if it was 10-20-30 years ago?
    Would it make him less of a predator?


    They're simple Yes & No questions.

    We have a statute of limitations for good reason.

    Bill Cosby is in the news right now because someone took major exception with his pound cake speech. That is a fact. That is the event that brought this back into the news. The media, for whatever reason, has decided to dive into these allegations that were long forgotten even though the length of time makes it virtually impossible to get a conviction.

    If he hadn't made the pound cake speech, a fellow comedian wouldn't of attacked him, and he wouldn't be in the news today.

    That is entirely irrelevant to what I asked. Your avoidance of the questions doesn't change that.

    Bill Cosby is in the news right now because someone took major exception with his pound cake speech.
    Someone took major exception with a speech he made a decade ago?

    That is a fact.
    Prove it. Show us how the speech directly influenced the claims. I'll wait. Someone made a joke about Bill Cosby being a rapist and well, the fact that he was accused by multiple women over a period of nearly 2 decades doesn't help that.

    That is the event that brought this back into the news. The media, for whatever reason, has decided to dive into these allegations that were long forgotten even though the length of time makes it virtually impossible to get a conviction.
    An event that took place 10 years ago is what brought this into the light?

    If he hadn't made the pound cake speech, a fellow comedian wouldn't of attacked him, and he wouldn't be in the news today.
    So you mean, it was entirely unknown that Bill Cosby had been accused of sexual assault before this poundcake thing? Well, that's obviously not true. Here are the questions again:

    1. If it was proven that Bill Cosby assaulted some of these women, would it make a difference if it was 10-20-30 years ago?

    2. Would it make him less of a predator?


    I welcome you to answer them when you stop trying to excuse Cosby's potential sexual predation.

    You kind of have to make a million dollars to even consider avoiding paying taxes on a million dollars. But never mind that detail.
