Did I dream this or could it possibly be true?
The same day that the Demagogue In Chief (aka Barack Obama) was in Florida pusing his version of the Buffett rule, one of the great investor's companies (NetJets) is being sued by the IRS for more than a quarter billion of tax evasion (or was it Jimmie Buffett?).
No, I'm pretty sure it a Buffett named Warren.
Yes, the company being sued by the IRS (after years of shilly shallying by the great investor) is a subsiary of Berkshire Hathway, Warren Buffett's shining star, and it's not just for small change.
You just can't make this stuff up.
When the lame stream media refers to the Buffett Rule from now on, it won't be about taxing the rich more; it'll be about uber rich like Buffet doing as much as possible to cheat on their taxes!
Hypocrisy, thy name is Buffett! No one, including the Anointed One, should ever take this clown seriously again.
By the way, the Anointed One decided last week to attack Social Darwinism. Just like I've alwyas been a Darwinist, I've always been a student of Social Darwinism, going back to my days studying history at Plymouth State, and I contend with no lack of pride that being a Social Darwinist is a good thing, a very good thing indeed! It's the social Darwinist spirit, the entrepreneurial spirit, that made Warren The Tax Cheater Buffett such a wealthy man! Unlike the spirit of Socialism which seems to animate Barack Obama, Social Darwinism is as American as...well...as American as cheating on your taxes. (Just kidding...or am I?).
