So tax cheats are not parasites? It takes effort to report income. It takes no effort to not report income. I see no point in putting the effort in.

I am! Lawyers determined I wasn't fit to work anymore (brain seizures) and more lawyers asked to represent me so I could get disability! Lawyers are great aren't they?
I still do more work in a day than most healthy men.

There is a huge amount of business conducted that completely ignores all government regulation. A lot that ignores various tax laws. IMO instead of worrying about the stripper working for tips we need to change the tax code and eliminate most government spending. if we didnt need a school board superintendent 100 years ago we dont need one today? just what exactly do they do to earn those 6 figure incomes???????

What would be nice if the Gubmint would allow folks on SS to work before they reach full retirement age. With the willing worker shortage it would be a win-win but the Gubmint won't allow that.

Your turn, go.



The ol' TMan strategy of calling someone a democrat when they have nothing better to say. I actually thought you were a little smarter than that.

Remember, you said:

I don’t consider anyone that keeps money from someone who doesn’t know how to spend it wisely a parasite. I wish more Americans would do it.

People who take their hand off the wagon without climbing on the wagon should be praised not demonized as well.


You are caught up on the wrong part. Let's use you and stick with the crack dealer. You earn $25 and all of the cake you can eat playing cover songs at some kid's birthday party. A crack dealer earns $1000 selling crack. Both of you have reportable and taxable income. Yes, the crack dealer committed a crime in earning his money. However, if you and the crack dealer fail to report your incomes and pay taxes on it (if owed) both of you have committed exactly the same federal crime. So, praise yourself and him too. From a taxation standpoint, you are the same people.

Nobody hates paying taxes more than me. Nobody hates wasteful spending more than me--and most of it is. I am however never going to condone someone not pulling their weight just because they don't want to--especially when the rest of us are paying their way.




Are you certain English is your language? LMAO!

A “democrat sympathizer” is not actually a democrat.

"Everybody has a risk of serious or catastrophic injury or illness. You can cover that risk in two ways I can think of: with health insurance, or by setting aside enough assets to pay the cost."

There is third way Jim.

"Can I get coverage if I have a pre-existing condition?

Yes. Under the Affordable Care Act, health insurance companies can’t refuse to cover you or charge you more just because you have a “pre-existing condition” — that is, a health problem you had before the date that new health coverage starts."

Thanks!

"However, the largest fraction of corporate welfare spending, about 40%, went through the Department of Agriculture, most of it in the form of farm subsidies."

Bryce would probably be our most knowledgeable member about these.

Any private business that receives tax payer dollars or pay no taxes.

https://www.cnbc.com/2019/12/16/these-91-fortune-500-companies-didnt-pay-federal-taxes-in-2018.html

From CNBC so who knows how accurate it is
