"Over the last 15 months, we’ve traveled to every corner of the United States. I’ve now been in 57 states? I think one left to go. Alaska and Hawaii, I was not allowed to go to even though I really wanted to visit, but my staff would not justify it."

Regulatory income reporting for tax purposes is performed through "voluntary compliance" however you are "obligated" to report income and file for taxation purposes "under threat of fines and criminal penalties."

WTF is that other than an oxymoron, it's a totally contradictory statement? How can something be voluntary and yet you are obligated using extortion tactics? I wrote a thread on this crap with research at Tax Compliance and Invoicing the Tax Man.

Cheers - Dave

So far a lot of these have been sort of haha slip ups, or innocent contradictions...

Here is one that is pure IGNORANT:

“It seems to me, from what I understand from doctors, that’s really rare,” Akin told KTVI-TV. “If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down. But let’s assume that maybe that didn’t work or something: I think there should be some punishment, but the punishment ought to be of the rapist, and not attacking the child.”

Legitimate rape....disgusting,

I forgot to add, now that it's "really over" they renamed Operation Iraqi Freedom "Operation New Dawn."

You know this guy has to be high up on the food chain when the person you shot in the face gives you apologies.

Not stupid either.

Dana Perrino interviewed a Navy SEAL and this is what transpired.
Danna "Did you have to learn several languages?"
SEAL "No ma'am, we don't go there to talk"

"Child support is for the welfare of the children" ...

Everyone knows child support is designed to fuel hatred ..kill fathers ...and destroy the fabric of society ..its the number one issue degrading America and the Western world in general .. I'm surprised Anderson Cooper or someone didn't pose this question to the presidential debaters this year .. looks like nobody really gives a s$%! about the kids or families ..
