    Re: Democratic Senator Reveals Nearly $300,000 in Unpaid Property Taxes

    What I find funny is ANY time the GOP begins to lose ground in the national discourse, they ALWAYS turn to one of their favorite tried and true tactics, "Let's see what juice tidbits of dirt we can find on Democrats."

    Not excusing McCaskill or anyone else for not paying their taxes, it's just interesting that the GOP always uses this tactic in an effort to discredit their opponent while ignoring misdeeds by members of their own party.Of course, they'll say that "finding those members of Congress who haven't paid their taxes" is doing the people's business. To that, I say, "Fine. But they should point that finger of ethics at your own people just as well"...something they rarely ever do. Of course, it's really all about taking the spotlight off of themselves and placing it on their opponent all the while hoping that the People don't realize they really haven't governed at all.

    And there isnt a difference between 11 Republican Tax Cheats and 15,876 Democrat Tax Cheats.........

    ........"Republicans do it to".....which excuses all 15,876.

    Why of course you are. You called it a juicy tidbit, instead of what it is.

    You use double quotation marks for that comment. I'd like to know who offered the comment please?
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Not excusing McCaskill or anyone else for not paying their taxes,...
    Of course you are. Just because you start off with this phony disclaimer means nothing. You use this as your jumping off point to do just that by your follow-up comments trying very hard to minimize the situation:
    "...
    it's just interesting that the GOP always uses this tactic in an effort to discredit their opponent while ignoring misdeeds by members of their own party.Of course, they'll say that "finding those members of Congress who haven't paid their taxes" is doing the people's business." And again with the double quotation marks and so source attribution for that quote. Please to do so.

    Can you give me an example of when YOU complied with your own advice and posted an outrage against a demonRAT who cheated somehow? If you can't then your lecture to us is an exercise in hypocrisy mister.

    Now it makes sense why these people want to raise the tax rate. They don't pay the taxes anyway so the rate will not impact them!

    1. in case you haven't noticed, the 2010 elections were sort of a massive ground gainer for Republicans. they are advancing at present, not losing

    2. both parties trumpet the failures of the other to the sky.


    3. if you want to get a look at the relative nastiness of the parties, please feel free to compare the mild ridicule of Biden with the vitriol and violence hurled against Palin. or any other comparative entites from the respective parties. nutjobs in the Democratic Party accused Bush of being complicit in the propagation of the worst terrorist attack on our soil in history, and slandered him with the blood of thousands of innocent Americans. nutjobs in the Republican Party accuse Obama of not having a long form birth certificate. and so on.

    Not excusing McCaskill or anyone else for not paying their taxes, it's just interesting that the GOP always uses this tactic in an effort to discredit their opponent while ignoring misdeeds by members of their own party
    it becomes a question of hypocrisy. Just as Republicans are castigated more for failures of moral values (a Republican messing around with a paige is a huge deal, a Democrat doing so is his own personal and nobody else's business), Democrats are castigated more for failures of their social values. the morality of taxing the wealthy being a Democrat value, wealthy Democrats who seek to avoid paying taxes will have to explain to the voters (as philandering Republicans have to do) why the values they preach are good for thee but not for me.

    [SIZE="3"][FONT="Book Antiqua"]cp, I checked out this laugher of a link authority> all over the place, mainly from corporations. A link to opensecrets.org that takes youn to their general blog page. I looked high and low and did a "search" on the page too. Results = NOTHING about corporations giving do-re-mi. It would appear that Mr. Invisible is appropriately named........,after his type of references.

    Congratulations. Raising the tax rate when the largest percentage of taxes are actually paid by the wealthy transfers that liability to the wealthy. Another way the socialists among us would penalize the risk-takers, investors and those who create jobs. It accomplishes a redistribution of wealth through selective taxation.. The wealthy have less and the rest reap the benefit of that and have more. It defines a parasitic relationship, which these latter-day Marxists who desire to transfer all personal responsiblity to government depend upon.

    Which is exactly why Dems don't like corporations donating. They're not assured they will get the lion's share of it like they do unions. It levels the playing field and they hate that.
