GUILANI ORWELLIAN BULLSH*T ALERT

On Meet The Press Guilani... with a straight face, just declared Trump a GENIUS for using the tax code to get himself out of financial trouble... while sweeping under the carpet Trump's total incompetency as a business man.

The obvious contradiction in this desperate Orwellian argument is that if NOT for generous tax code... TRUMP'S INCOMPETENCY IN BUSINESS WOULD HAVE COMPLETELY DOOMED HIM.

1. The sorry truth is that many Rs admire the fact that Rs break the law and get away

with illegal or questionable practices. I have heard this voiced by Rs I know more than a couple of times.

7. the anti-tax right has become the FREE LUNCH RIGHT


The nation works best when the private and public sectors bootstrap each other. Government provides the infrastructure... from public health to education to highways to police/fire protections etc. This makes the private sector more efficient which then pays taxes to provide for more government infrastructure.

The anti-government right has lost site of this simple equation and has not just tried to sabotage the fiscal health of the nation but some cheer tax evasion. They've deluded themselves they can have tax cuts based on borrowed money and refuse to see that deficits and debt are one generation wanting a free lunch while sending the bill to our kids and grandkids. Sadly this idea has begun to infect the Dems as well. Back in 2000 libs were against Bush's irresponsible tax cuts but instead wanted to pay down debt. Now, Obama has bought into structural deficits by making most of Bush's irresponsible tax cuts permanent.

6. don't you see....

Don't you see... we can't bother to look at his business failings... or his not paying federal income taxes, we must look instead at HOW HE MADE A COMEBACK!!! No doubt that was much easier if he had his income shielded from federal taxes...

5. Did he dodge state taxes as well?

So if he dodged state taxes in New York, did he pay giuliani in other ways? Or is it just poor, stupid people who need to pay that stinkin' goombah?
