Care to tell us what some of the bad things were that you got away with? :D

"Taking illegal deductions on federal income tax returns (is that stealing??) Naw....everybody does it so that makes it ok. :bs:

Illegal? I think I pay enough taxes already, and everything is within tax code according to our CPA. Here's one of our new tax bills that just came in last week. The government calls it taxes I call it legalized stealing.

Not what you said in previous post here on CT, Grit when you admitted taking deductions you knew were not allowable.CPA works with just what you give him. Still your responsibility to furnish him truthful information.

I find it hard to believe that I'd say something exactly like that TB, but your probably right. I have definitely taken deductions that I shouldn't have, but as far as I know none of it's been illegal. There's a big difference between shouldn't and illegal.

Grit, just think about how with this new proposed tax system will effect this one tax you pay. If passed, you won't be able to write it off and you will have to claim it as income and be taxed on it. So in a sense, we are fixing to get a pretty substantial tax increase. I imagine next, when this doesn't fund all the government's little give away programs and furnish all the entitlements so many feel entitled to they will pass another tax scheme that will not allow us to deduct inputs on cost of production because is this not the same thing as your tax bill there? This is a cost of doing business is it not? Pretty sure none of the attorneys in DC will have a problem arguing that point. Transfer this to the cattle industry and we'll be paying on the $1000 calf we sold but the $400 in production cost won't be considered because this is taxable as will the county taxes and all other production costs.

We'll be back to the old days of trading if taxes keep going up. Some of the folks in European countries have already figured this out. It's very sad to take from one to give to another, seems almost criminal.

It's my fault CB, I posted something using the wrong wording. I guess I shoulda said I've never did any shoplifting. Tarzan didn't steal any sunglasses.

That's a terrible thing for the POUTS to say IMO. Why punish the kid because of the parent? Everyone deserves a chance especially with those kids upbringing.

It would have been much, much better not said, but I think I can feel the frustration the man has. Hand some folks the brass ring and them say it ain't shiny enough is pretty pathetic. This happens every day he is POTUS. Remember. Lots of us voted for him because he wasn't he same ole same ole politician.

Grit, CB got nothing against Tarzan but he sure hates those "extras from the Tarzan movie". But then he's the typical Pharisee. Stands and gives them the "look at me" show on Sunday morning and night then leaves it all behind when he walks out of the building. He has a huge gap between public persona and private character.

Not really TB we have some of those extras in my family and almost enough hick-spanics to film an Alamo movie.
Prison stats speaks volumes.

Somehow you relate a person who "Went to church every day of the week" as "church going" and therefore never error. Going to church and religion, deals with spiritual and moral values, but not necessarily Christianity. That's a relationship.

Remember, "Going to church will no more make you a Christian, then setting in a chicken house will make you a chicken!"


Someone who goes to church diligently is in fact a "church-going" person. If they also steal steaks, they are most likely not practicing what they hear preached, agreed. (Not the only example, I'm sure, of such hypocrisy. Paging just about every televangelist!)

Maybe so and you make it brutally obvious that you look on them as being far inferior to you...."hick spanics"..."Tarzan movie extras". Yep...a real practicing Christian.
