Re: Are you better off than you were four years ago?

I'm better off - mostly because I took a risk and put in the extra time to build something from scratch. I take 100% of the credit for my success. It wouldn't matter to me who had won the last election. I don't rely on any political party to make my bones and I've done okay so far. That said, I have...

Think we'll hear this on Chris Mathews any time soon?

He's pretty good at calling people dog whistling racists. This right here is blatant. But of course we know when you say "Chicago" that is far more racist than using the term "negrohood". I'm sure he'll cover this for days and apply it across the entire democrat party platform. http://www.sheepshead...

Re: Ryan....

Jon: Not to oversimplify this, but it cost me $2,153 to give him the $2,000. And your company won't owe income tax on the $2000 come April 15. Or are you saying your company's tax rate is 0%? No. My company's tax year is Jan 1 to Dec 31 and I pay quarterly so I won't owe anything on the $2,000 come...

Re: Ryan....

Epon, couldnt you have just flipped the ways you gave him the two quantities and cut the gov't's take by about 90%? too bad Romney doesn't work for you, he'd pay less than $300 on that $two grand gift.[/size] Heh, nice. Nope. The gov't would get their cut either way. I'd have to take it as salary t...

Re: Ryan....

I must have missed the part where you explained how an extra $450/yr is going to leave you hungry and how the Clinton tax rates delayed your financial independence by 5(?) years. Two or three things - then you can explain to me why I should pay even more than my already (not-so-)fair share: I make ...
