how often have i brought up the individual tax rates of carolina huddle dot com posters?

post nudes of your girlfriend or we're only left to assume that she's hideous

sorry but these are apparently the rules

also i wouldn't last long as a liberal professor's TA because while liberals aren't as high on my shitlist as republicans and libertarians (of course these are basically the same thing), they're a close 3rd

furthermore



and, from the same fuging post:



what is it like being so fuging stupid that you can't get out of your own way? also, [b]don't you run a operate a restaurant for a living?[/b] in what world is that an achievement?
[/quote]

Nope sure don't. But a great guess. I have partially owned a restaurant in the past, but it interfered with my real job, so I closed it down after 3.5 years.

Sorry about calling you underachieving, that was uncalled for. I just have an assumption about it, but should not have said it.

No,

I'm commenting on the fact that some people here think that those who want more social programs and wealth more equitably distributed do not contribute a "fair" share of their income in taxes.

It's true.

But I cheat on my taxes to avoid paying so I can't complain.

The point of this thread, if anyone cares, is

a) to get you to figure out your rate, even if you don't post it, to get you to realize you probably don't pay as much taxes as you think you do, and
b)if you want to look to somebody to start paying more federal taxes, you probably should start by looking in the mirror.

Those promoting their pet issues aside.

I thought it was in response to the comments made about Romney's tax rate during the election, and how many people don't understand the difference between tax bracket and effective tax rate. Which is similar to point a I guess.

Some people just see an ulterior motive behind most comments in the tinderbox. Which is understandable to an extent.

it isn't hard to see an ulterior motive when some posters are going, "HMM, I see that some people aren't posting their tax information. I wonder why, hah hah hah!"

You think Jase had an ulterior motive in starting this thread? I don't think that is true, although some others might have tried to use it for the purpose you mentioned. But if we eliminated all threads that turned in an unintended way, half the threads in the tinderbox would be gone. And all that would be left would be threads that were blatant attempts to launch attacks on the other side. Well that and conspiracy theory threads.

More than I thought. I don't mind paying more if there are increases in the wealthiest levels including loop holes closed for the rich and cost cuts made in the budget.

Explain how I am being the least bit hypocritical by not sharing something over the internet.

[size=4]The hypocrisy is due to not sharing... it is from the derived assumption that you don't because it shows one for who they are. The hypocrisy is (again) about [/size]sanctimonious[size=4] asshats that scream about unfairness while doing nothing themselves.[/size]
