    Those Rethugs keep insisting on smaller gov’t., and have been cutting the IRS’s budget to the point where they hardly have anyone skulking around in the office anymore doing those nasty “audits” and such we used to hear about, especially when used as an excuse for us to not see Hair Furor’s tax returns. So yeah, go ahead and take your chances, I doubt they’ll even notice.
    But make sure to let the rest of know if it’s a successful ploy, so we can ALL get away with it. After all, this country WAS founded on the principle of “no taxation without representation,” and I certainly don’t feel like I’m being represented fairly and squarely, or even squirrely.

        Great article, BDR, and the charts were a big bonus. I knew the audits were tilted in favor of the Poorz, which is why I was encouraging Coach Dave to go for it, assuming he was in the middle-to-upper-middle tax brackets. And it’s not just the tax cheats who are costing the Gov’t., the latest tax cut, and the shutdowns have had a large impact on revenue-collection.
        The rich ARE different from you and I, and they fight with all their might to keep things that way.

      I dunno about that, but if this argument held water, then the pacifist Quakers would have used it long ago.

    Let’s see… money is speech, according to the government. Freedom of speech also guarantees freedom to not say things. That means we don’t have to talk to the government? With our money?

    He objects to the government killing babies – what’s he doing about the southern border hi-jinx, then, where they actually are?
