    You should be thankful that Palin didn't get elected, she has tax troubles, too. Imagine, someone with tax troubles a heart beat away from the presidency.

    *shudder*

    btw, KYMAN, who sends out the daily talking points these days?

    Ravi - Just FYI, you can save time by not replying to my posts... I have put you in the jillian and booboo category as someone who doesn't add anything intelligent to these threads...

    I will not be responding to you any longer.... Thanks.

    Yeah that was really her worst flaw, right? :razz:

    (last bit of the first video)And you are worried about Obama spending? If can't control her own spending, then how exactly should she be able to control the spending of this nation?

    You're welcome. I'll continue to respond to you regardless because your continual chimping for the Republicans amuses me greatly.

    Sorry you were unable to answer the question I posed.

    And yes.. Palin has a tax 'issue' that is in the open now that the per diem situation has been clarified... but not anywhere in the same ballpark as the other political tax issues we have seen come out

    Palin's tax issue is one that is arguable. The per diem is used in place of itemizing expenses while she would be away on business. Being home is not necessarily being on business, however, the Governor is always on-call and can be considered to be working, same as the President is. When she is away from the governor's mansion, she is away from home, even if she is at her second home.

    I can see both sides of this. In any case, this is not something she did to evade paying her taxes. The only question now is whether or not she fights it. It would probably cost her more to fight it than just to pay them.
