Sprightly was telling a story:
Two days ago I ran into a relative who was with a long time friend of hers. I've never had a long conversation with the woman, no reason, just hasn't happened. She mentioned to me that when she receives her tax return she will be buying a car. I know that she only worked at the most two months at a fast food restaurant (she quit because of the hours), and an even shorter stint doing something else. Curious, I asked her if she "did okay" on her taxes. Her, "Hell yeah, honey! I'm getting almost $7,000 back." "That's nice," said I. <sigh> Her husband has been in prison for quite some time and will be there for a few more years. She has three kids under 18. She has a very nice Section 8 home, receives other types of financial assistance from the government. Tell me again that part of the problem with our tax system isn't that this woman receives a "refund" for taxes she didn't even pay. And this is not an anomaly so don't even try it.
Any posters here with that type of income ?!?!?!? I didn't think so.
Demopublican ? Do you even personally know anybody, like in their Iphone call log know, who nets $27,648.39 bi weekly ? I didn't think so.
If Phil wants to leave and go somewhere better more power to him. I'm sure he can afford it. But I bet he doesn't.
Duh.Evidently his public relations team made it known to him Monday that his tax comments would be very detrimental to his image and the image of the PGA Tour.
Tiger Woods is respected but Mickelson has always been beloved by golf fans. His comments can be construed as whining and unwarranted by Americans that just cannot relate to earning $40 million annually and the inherent tax liabilities.
