    I will never ever understand why the First Family's taxes are anybody's business. I can sort of understand our interest in the President's health, but not his finances.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Absolutely not, you see if one wants us all to "give" more the things we are "giving" to MUST be efficient...or we are simply throwing good money after bad...

    The deabte is a linear one...emotions have no place in it.

    Why didn't Obama pay 100% taxes?

    Are you going to explain to me what you mean by that, or do you consider being too cowardly to insult me directly a legitimate debate tactic?

    What I mean, is that you're a Liberal and you would never question The One.

    He probably did on the income that the top rate applied to.
    I may be wrong.

    Um, no, wrong on both counts. It just looks that way when you lean as far to the right as you do.
