Unpatriotic Taxpayer?

Joe Biden is a one-man bullshit show. Wind him up and out comes...crap.

Biden said this about paying taxes:

"We want to take money and put it back in the pocket of middle-class people," Biden said. Of those who would pay more, he said: "It's time to be patriotic ... time to jump in, time to be part of the deal, time to help get America out of the rut." (Emphasis mine.)

Uh, no.

From Judge Learned Hand: "Anyone may arrange his affairs so that his taxes shall be as low as possible; he is not bound to choose that pattern which best pays the treasury. There is not even a patriotic duty to increase one's taxes. Over and over again the Courts have said that there is nothing sinister in so arranging affairs as to keep taxes as low as possible. Everyone does it, rich and poor alike and all do right, for nobody owes any public duty to pay more than the law demands."

I'll be damned if I'll sit by and let this moron call me unpatriotic. You know what? All that money I send over to support soldiers? I don't write that off...that's my patriotic duty...not paying more freaking taxes.

November can't come soon enough, and Joe can go back to Delaware and "suck it".
