These people are idiots. But this is funny:
uppitypersonUnless, of course, you are Charlie Rangel, Timmy Geithner or any of the other prominent Democratic tax cheats currently in the government.
5. Here's an interesting thought. If your kid gets killed in the military, excuse family from paying
taxes for that yr, including not only the dead military person's family, but his/her parents. I wouldn't cause a lot of problems in the gvt and might be a decent thing to do.
I know, the "kid" is an adult so why should his/her parents get a tax break, but just thinking it would be decent.

22. Sounds sort of like a payoff to me
Or a bribe. I think it sounds kind of cheap and disgusting, as if escaping paying your taxes for a year is compensation for the death of a child. As if that would even the balance sheet. Money, money, money: I thought only Republicans think about it all the time.
Sorry, but in a country with a volunteer army, that is not how things work. Death benefits, yes; parents escaping their taxes, no. We're Democrats: we all pay taxes because we believe in contributing to the common good (and to fixing those things we disagree are contributing to the common good through the democratic system).
Did Cindy Sheehan ever think that by withholding her taxes she harms somebody else's child? I bet she didn't.
