    "Racking" in the dough?

    Don't you mean 'raking' in the dough?

    So your only defense is a sematic one? Thanks for playing.

    It's 'semantic' not 'sematic'.

    And you did not make a semantic error.

    You made a grammatical error and used the wrong word or spelled 'racking' wrong and added a k where a k should not have been added. Big, big difference.

    As for the actual topic. I haver never said anything nor presented a claim arguing leaders within the Bush presidency invaded Iraq for money. You have me confused for someone else.

    Wow, you mean the private sector pays more than the public sector?

    What a stunning revelation!

    Just because someone has a certain adjusted gross income doesn't mean that's how much money they made! They are all kinds of tax writeoffs and loop holes that these people can through to make it look like they make a lot less money and pay less taxes.

    It also doesn't reflect how much they own. It's not a reflection on their total wealth, just their income. There's a huge difference.

    Keep in mind, Cheney has way more benefits through Haliburton than just money. That's also the money they LEGALLY made, who knows what Cheney is making in under the table bribes and gifts for his sweetheart deals.

    Don't worry, Retired loves to play nomadic word games all the time when he has not facts.

    I wonder if we could see what Cheney's actual legal net worth is. Is that on the public record? Of course that doesn't count money in Swiss bank accounts.

    Would this be a bad time to point out that YOU made an error yourself while snottily correcting someone else?

    I think perhaps you meant to say the "c" should have been taken out, thus making the word "raking".

    Tsktsk.
