Gramps. If you're such an Obama believer, let's do a quick lesson in redistribution. I'll play the part of the Administration and you play the piggy bank. After all, that's how OBAMA views the TAX PAYING AMERICAN PUBLIC. Now all you have to do is hand me your check book, never mind you have to pay your mortgage, doctor's bills and buy groceries. I'm here to tell you that you have too much. I'm going to write checks to a couple of your neighbors because I don't feel they have enough. I'm gonna pay some bills for some unfortunate illegal immigrants in Texas because we ALL need to do our part and finally, I'm going to pay for Condoms for some women in FL who isn't responsible enough to abstain from sex or find it important enough to make her own provisions for safe sex. When I give you your check book back, you'll see that I've spent more than you have but that didn't concern me because you had checks ...... so I used them. Don't be angry about this, its redistribution Gramps. Your champion, OBAMA just showed you his understanding of economics.

@ Gramps - let's not forget that another of your neighbors has been very very fortunate indeed and hid his checkbook outside of the country and wines and cries and tries to buy elections everytime someone has the audacity to question what they contribute to the neighborhood. These are the same folks who say to your face they want small government and personal freedom, but yet want descision making abilities in your private lives... especially when it comes to your doctors office or bed room. You see, if your doctor wants to perscribe something, this neighbor wants to deny you this medicine because they think they know better then your doctor. And if you want the freedom to marry the love of your life, this neighbor wants to keep you from that because some Zombie Jewish Carpenter was, 2,000 years ago, a homophobe. You see, Gramps, these wonderful "all-knowing" neighbors have no concept of reality or what it means to be in modern, educated culture. Indeed - they deride education in any form. That's the Tea Pary - your present day Republican Party.

Regarding the PWC letter covering the Romneys’ tax filings over 20 years, from 1990 – 2009: -In each year during the entire 20-year period, the Romneys owed both state and federal income taxes. -Over the entire 20-year period, the average annual effective federal tax rate was 20.20%. -Over the entire 20-year period, the lowest annual effective federal personal tax rate was 13.66%. -Over the entire 20-year period, the Romneys gave to charity an average of 13.45% of their adjusted gross income. -Over the entire 20-year period, the total federal and state taxes owed plus the total charitable donations deducted represented 38.49% of total AGI. During the 20-year period covered by the PWC letter, Gov. and Mrs. Romney paid 100 percent of the taxes that they owed

Romney should demand an apology from Dingy Harry. He wouldn’t get it, but it would be nice to see Dingy cornered on his lies again.
