    So we all know Buffet is running around saying he and other Billionaires should pay more taxes. Ok cool.

    then explain why his company is involved in a years long dispute with the IRS in which he is fighting paying what the IRS claims he owes?

    Warren Buffett: Tax Hypocrite
    So can we maybe stop holding MR buffet up as hero now. He is a fucking Hypocrite. If you think the Government needs your money so badly, why in the hell would you fight your tax bill?

    It's really quite simple: Buffett must defend and protect his investors. His personal finances are an entirely different matter.

    Simply put, as an American he's speaking out against the tax policies that are tearing this nation apart. Good for him.

    Whether or not he has a legal dispute over legitimate taxes owed is a whole different matter.

    WHat tax policy that is destroying America?
    Not enough taxes on the rich? :lol::lol::lol:
    You bought that? Wow...as has been said over and over and over...if the IRS took...wait for it...100%...of every dime millionaires and above earned - it would barely make a blip on deficit spending. In fact if they not only took all of their earnings - but everything they had...it would still make an insignificant improvement in our deficit.
    Get off the Kool-Aid.
    The problem is that over half of all wage earners pay no taxes...and government spending has increased every freakin year for the past 31 years but one.

    The fucker reminds me of

    Alfried Krupp
    , .

    Krupp and his father were initially hostile to the Nazi Party. However, in 1930 they were persuaded by Hjalmar Schacht that Adolf Hitler would destroy the trade unions and the political left in Germany. Schacht also pointed out that a Hitler government would considerably increase expenditure on armaments. In 1933 Krupp joined the Schutzstaffel (SS).

    During the Second World War Krupp ensured that a continuous supply of his firm's tanks, munitions and armaments reached the German Army. He was also responsible for moving factories from occupied countries back to Germany where they were rebuilt by the Krupp company.

    Krupp also built factories in German occupied countries and used the labour of over 100,000 inmates of concentration camps. This included a fuse factory inside Auschwitz. Inmates were also moved to Silesia to build a howitzer factory. It is estimated that around 70,000 of those working for Krupp died as a result of the methods employed by the guards of the camps.

    In 1943 Adolf Hitler appointed Krupp as Minister of the War Economy. Later that year the SS gave him permission to employ 45,000 Russian civilians as forced labour in his steel factories as well as 120,000 prisoners of war in his coalmines.

    He's playing by the rules as they exist now.

    That's his job as a CEO

    He is calling for a change in the rules.

    That's his choice as a CITIZEN.
