IRS Drastically Increases Its Audits Of America's Richest Taxpayers

IRS Drastically Increases Its Audits Of America's Richest Taxpayers

Commented Mar 27, 2011 at 14:31:02 in Business

“The 2nd to last paragraph stated "costing the IRS about 53 cents per $100 collected", so yes it was worthwhile and did much more than cover the costs.”

Jevad on Mar 27, 2011 at 15:13:30

“I agree it was probably worthwhile, but it only explains the costs for the Audits, not the a word about the revenues it produced.

All this news item explains is that the "big bad IRS" got bigger and cost more to run - thus feeding into the Teabaggers argument (and the Repulibaggers argument for cutting funds to IRS), without describing the benefits of catching tax cheats that the rest of us wind up paying for.”

A Welcome Blast From the New Doctor Who

Commented Mar 1, 2011 at 09:57:38 in Entertainment

“I do love me some Who and can't wait for the new series to begin.

But my favorite doctor was #9 - Christopher Eccleston. Do you know why he left/was replaced? I also loved Martha Jones and was sad to see her leave after one series as well :(”

edejan on Mar 2, 2011 at 11:37:05

“Although I have loved Tom Baker through the years, I loved Christopher Eccleston too and thought he was an excellent reincarnation of Dr. Who. I was really prepared to HATE David Tennant but found I really liked him a lot, then loved him. Then I was completely prepared to HATE Matt Smith (I hate change you may observe) but I LOVE him. He is so quirky and strange, yet endearing and brainy. The writing on the new series is so excellent compared to the old-timey Dr. Who's. I can't wait for the new series.

Thanks for writing about one of my all time favorite shows!”

hp blogger William Bradley on Mar 1, 2011 at 12:34:59

“I don't know why he left. It was announced he was only doing the one season right after the first episode aired.

Count me as a Martha Jones fan, too. The two-parter where they flee to England right before WWI and, to more effectively hide, he gives up his identity as the Doctor, leaving it in her safe-keeping, is a real highlight of the show.”

The WORST Education Fails Of All Time (PHOTOS)

Commented Aug 29, 2010 at 13:23:51 in Comedy

“The New Hooker school may be a funny sign, but the only education "fail" would be of the person who included it in this category.

Thomas Hooker founded the Colony of Connecticut, so yes, there would be a school named after him in the state of CT. If you don't know that, well, that's a failed education :)”

“You're missing the point. Non-Jews would be excluded from a Jewish club because they aren't Jewish. But they couldn't exclude Jews who are gay. There are gay Christians, ya know. And Christian churches who welcome gays as parishioners, ministers, bishops. And some that will also marry gay couples.”

Why I Still Stand With Blanche Lincoln

Commented Mar 10, 2010 at 01:01:11 in Politics

“I don't vote for anyone based on their gender (or race, for that matter)

Yes, it would be good to have more women in Congress, but not just "any" women. According to you, we should all vote for Michelle Bachmann even though she's a loon - but she's a female loon. According to you, we should have voted for McCain/Palin even though Palin is just a grifter in heels, instead of Joe Biden, who has done more for women's equality and more on women's issues than almost anyone.

The only way we'll ever truly have gender equality is when we stop basing our opinions of people based on their gender”

“She didn't joke about herself - she mocked other people joking about her. And her comments about them weren't funny - just mean. Just like her.”

KayJay90 on Dec 5, 2009 at 23:48:53

“That's right, she has NO sense of humor, unless it's at the expense of someone else.

How did she manage to not skewer Barney Frank? Although I guess I can answer my own question, because his speech followed hers, and he does a pretty good job of ad-libbing. He'd crucify her.

Oh, yeah, any of you neocon Palin fans out there? She did NOT write that speech herself. You can tell by how intelligible it sounded.”

“Seriously? The guy had an argument with his wife which resulted in him backing his car into a tree. He's not a murderer, people. If this is the "biggest scandal" he'll ever have, he's doing great.

C'mon media, get a grip.”

“Agreed. HP is making stuff up when the evidence is not in yet. We don't know what happened at all here. Tiger is not talking and the police have not completed their investigation yet. How are rumors = to a scandal? I just don't get it.”

Liberal Elitism Will Make Sarah Palin President - How Only Union Organizing Can Stop It

Commented Nov 13, 2009 at 10:49:28 in Politics

“Right, if your definition of liberal elites = people who read books

Palin isn't working class - I don't know that she's ever really worked a day in her life. She lies, manipulates and flits from one thing to the next. And when the going got tough, she quit.”

wilray on Nov 13, 2009 at 11:08:33

“What? Putting on make-up isn't work? Strutting around on stage in high heels and a bikini isn't work? That is how Sarah earned income for her college education. To pay for their education some girls work at burger joints, do babysitting, or do word processing. Sarah pranced around in a tiara. Someone should warn Carrie Prejean that if she wants to follow in the footsteps of her "brilliant" idol that beauty queen and talk show brat are not items she wants on her political resume.”
