on interest, dividends and capital gains."



Mit Romney is my new hero.

I'm overcome with excitment. I meant zero taxes.

What insidious taxes would Congress devise to make up the shortfall?



Gov. Romney's idea would be terrific for our business, no doubt. It would,

however, be viewed as some variation of "welfare for the rich", and as such

wouldn't stand a chance with the great unwashed.

I was getting ready to leave for Vietnam in 1970.



Why?

Thank you for your kind words and thoughts.  However, no thanks are necessary...given our cause and the men and women with whom I worked in our Navy for nearly 23 years, service was a privilege.

Zero taxes yeah right! Starka is right about the shortfall Congress would never go for it. 


But my main concern is he is a MORMON! Joseph Smith tried to run for president and he was executed!

The bigger concern is that he is a MORON! George W Bush tried to run for president and he was elected!

???? What does this mean?  I know two people in my town that are mormons and they are both very outstanding members of the community.  What's wrong with Mormons?

what would this proposal do to muni's?

  I'd have to know more about the timeframe and circumstances about Romney and the draft before I'd ever call him a coward. As to his kids, come on. Clinton sent troops into combat, a volunteer military, and I'd defend Chelsea against anyone who'd call her or her father a coward because of it.

Gee, I thought we might be beyond religious bigotry at this point in our evolution. That's a shame...

Would you vote for some one if they where a Muslim?

You guys sure know how to rain on someone's parade.

Don't get me wrong, Skee...I'm all about reigning in out-of-control-tax-

anything-that-moves policies. It's just that there's such a disconnect

between the will of the people and the will of the bureaucrats that I don't

think that even the strongest of Presidents could even come close to pulling

it off.

The only thing about voting for a Muslim that would give me pause (and I'm not proud to say this) is that radical elements of that religion mean us harm. If I'm sure this candidate isn't part of that element and doesn't share any of the 15th Century beliefs of some of the rest of Muslim, I could vote for them. Now, I'm unaware of any element of the Mormon religion that aims to fly planes into buildings or stone women for showing skin..


Do you have an approved list of religions to go along with your "I couldn't vote for" list?
