The bear still has the best memory !

The MCI founder does not count since he is one of the dot con scapegoats.

Mr (Idiot) Survivor is correct, because he did not pay taxes on his show winnings.

Exactly how hard is it to lock the doors from the lobbyists, lay down a simple set of formulae that works for 98% of the constituents and businesses and then set to work on that two percent that fall outside of normal parameters.

It can't be a flat % as that doesn't scale down and it can't be a VAT [sales tax] as that also does not scale down well. It has to be something that balances for everyone, from the poor through middleclass to rich.


Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.
