The Rich Pay Different Taxes Than You and Me

“‘It’s probably closer to the 15 percent rate than anything,’ Romney told reporters when asked about his effective tax rate. ‘The last ten years my income comes overwhelmingly from investments made in the past rather than ordinary income or rather than earned annual income.'” [CNN]


Je suis confused. I thought we were all sheltering in the Caymans and Lausanne. Of course we pay different taxes: we’re worth more. I don’t see what’s the problem. If only the poors would choose to be rich most of our problems wold be solved. Then the gays could choose to be straight and the stupids could choose to be intelligent. Wait. Then the Republican party would collapse. To say nothing of SC, NC, KY, MS, LS, TX, ETC.

@Benedick: is tennessee abbreviated ETC now? if you had to put up with the shit i do here, you certainly would think so.

T/J, Dept of I Love L.A., from the local fishwrap: “Los Angeles police detectives were on the scene at a hiking trail below the Hollywood sign today after a dog found a human head inside a bag.”

@jwmcsame: Darling, I have been to TN. Twice. My heart goes out to you. Do we need to stage a ‘copter intervention to airlift you out to New Jersey? Wait. What?

@Dodgerblue: This bag, was it Vuitton? And this dog, was it Sharpei? (Obviously it wasn’t a Pug, or Dachshund) And the head, did it have representation? (All very Brett Easton Ellis)

@Benedick: Paper or plastic? The cops aren’t saying. Late word is that two dog walkers were walking 9 dogs in a canyon in the Hollywood Hills when 2 dogs of unspecified breed began playing with a bag, said bag turning out, on inspection, to contain the head of a male person now acknowledged by said cops to be a homicide victim. The “Hollywoodland” girls’ camp is nearby; one suspects a scavenger hunt gone terribly wrong.

@Dodgerblue: L.A. still can’t top Headless Body in Topless Bar.
