Good for Mitt. I see he gives about 15% to charity. I'm guessing Mitt gives more than Obama & Biden combined.orlin sellers
Only if you count 'charity' as his church, which seems like more of a payoff than donation.
Wow. Hard hitting stuff right there.
And you know what...I don't begrudge any of those people pictured their success and money because they earned it. I do however begrudge it when some yahoo decides that they need to take half what I earn and give it to some worthless neer do well.
Funny, I begrudge someone like Mitts on R-money cheating a lot of American workers out of their pensions, out of their jobs by exploiting overseas workers, and by sticking us with their tax bill by dubious tax avoidance schemes ----- and then failing to provide their tax returns in full, for the last 12 years.I rather doubt anyone takes half of what you earn, OR that it ever goes to worthless ne'er do wells.It is a majority of Romney supporters who themselves take government money that comprise the 47% Romney spoke about so contemptuously.
Yeah, how could anyone end up paying 50% of what they earn in taxes? Someone must have a screw loose!

I think Mitt's excessive wealth is a big strike against him.
But you love Bloomingbutt. It's all about guns, I suppose.
Many of those are fees, not taxes.As governor of Massachusetts, Mitts on r-money hiked fees enormously, but refused to admit they were a form of taxation.Sales tax is a choice; you don't have to pay it if you don't have to buy the item. Boo hoo.Here is the reality of those whom Mike wrongly branded as worthless n'er do wells:http://truth-out.org/news/item/12264-lies-of-plutocracy-exploding-five-myths-that-dehumanize-the-poor
Such as not buying food or medicine? That's what you mean? You may want to choose a better phrase to be remembered by, Dog Gone. "Boo hoo" doesn't quite match "Let them eat cake." (And yes, I know, Her Majesty Mary Annie probably didn't say that.)
Greg, no offense but I think boo hoo is acceptable this close to Halloween. LOL!!!!Besides, you have to feel kinda sorry for someone who hasn't figured out that fees and fines are nothing but a tax. Sorta like Penigma is a mystery, under a pseudonym.Boo Hoo!orlin sellers
Mikeb said: "I think Mitt's excessive wealth is a big strike against him."Please define 'excessive wealth." Poor Mitt didn't even make this list.http://www.forbes.com/billionaires/list/orlin sellers
Greg, Bloomberg is a mayor, these guys are running for president. And I'm not a one-issue guy. You've seen my posts about women's rights and capital punishment.
Yes, Bloomingbutt's a mayor, which means he gets to affect gun rights more than a president. I see a glaring inconsistency in your thinking here. You attack billionaires for having money, but you give this guy a pass because he's on your side with regard to guns.
To give this some more perspective: Mitt X 80 = Michael Bloomberg.
TS makes the rather common (and fucking hilarious) mistake of conflating Bloomberg's policies with his being a democrat. I know it burns, honey, but the stupid is what keeps you people thinking things like that.Orlon Zipper would obviously prefer a world with no taxes and none of the things that they pay for. That would be because he's a fucking moron.
The truth of the matter is DC, only a fucking moron likes taxes. And only a well-endowed retard would think he's getting his money's worth from any government service, like say TSA, Homeland Security, FDA, EPA, OSHA or any of the remaining alphabet soup agencies. Man, DC, you are rich with stupidity.orlin sellers
It is time to play the Democommie challenge- where I challenge Democommie to back up his insults with supporting facts. Today you called me stupid for saying that Bloomberg is a Democrat. Your challenge is to find where I called him a Democrat. Good luck, sir.
Orlin, I've asked you before, do you live in a cave in Montana? How do you get the internet connection?
Mikeb, if I were to live in a cave it would be one in Missouri. They have very nice caves there.It seems a shame that you like to pay taxes. I have much better stuff I could spend my money on. But, perhaps you have 'excessive wealth'.orlin sellers
You got a source for that?Bloomberg's another republican - so?Orlon is in a continuous tie for most stupid person commenting here; his ignorance is entertaining, but he doesn't argue his points very well.
My dear dumpling DG, what's to argue. You'd have to be a real dumb ass to like taxes or to think you are getting your money's worth for what you get.Those are my points, now argue why I'm wrong. Make your points clear and in simple, plain English so even a moron like DC can understand. Tell me why you like taxes. Tell me how you think you are getting your $16 trillion dollars worth.Your bestest friend and admirerorlin sellers
Bloomberg donates to a lot of worthy causes, and has - unlike Romney - a more successful career that doesn't appear to have ripped off the government, outsourced jobs, or involved hiding money in the Caymans or Switzerland. And unlike Mitt, he has a higher approval rating and keeps getting elected.He also hasn't lied about his time as CEO of a company or about where he live as his principal residence. And he doesn't flip flop like Mitts on R-money.
He keeps getting elected? You find nothing disturbing about how he had the term-limits law rewritten? To me, he looks like someone drunk on power.
Bloomberg doesn’t flip flop? He has run as a Democrat, a Republican, and now an Independent. What do you call that?And Forbes says he is worth $25 Billion, so correction- he equals 100 Mitts. That’s 100 big strikes against him in Mike’s book.http://www.forbes.com/profile/michael-bloomberg/
So, TS says he didn't say Bloomberg was a democrat. Of course he's correct. He either implied it (likely) or he's just too fucking stupid to realize that Bloomberg's being a reptilican is not exactly a good reason to say "nyah,nyah,nyah" about Romney's "success". Romney's always made his money the old-fashioned reptilican way--fucking other people and stealing it. This sort of action by him is deemed "success" by people like Orlon Zipper.Orlon, you fucking moron, which government services do you not want? I mean I'm sure you don't want any that infringe on your rights. Move to Somalia, asshole, they're big on the rule of the gun, there.
DC is the kind of person who doesn't buy anything from Amazon because he wouldn't have to pay tax on the purchase. He also reports and pays taxes on everything he buys or sells from a private party. When he buys something in a state he doesn't live in he reports it to his home state and pays the user tax.He is what you call a compliant sheeple.orlin sellers
