correct, but his suit against CNN has been decided in his favor, and he will win this one too.

3 strikes=======you're out.
False, there was no decision in his suit. They settled out of court.


So far none of your allegations have turned out to be correct.

an out of court settlement is a settlement. people settle out of court to minimize publicity and cut their losses. its not an allegation, its a fact.
The fact is you claimed the CNN suit was decided in his favor. The fact is that it was not decided, it was settled.

Their track record is excellent. Especially with big stories like this.
It was a hit job.
Well, when you cheat on your taxes a story about your taxes isn’t going to be very positive.
The reason for hiring accountants is to pay as little taxes as possible.
That’s one reason yes. You know who else has accountants? People who cheat on their taxes.

Besides, these records show how terrible Trump is at business. He loses tons of money on his ventures, only making up the difference by selling Oreos (among other things), taking loans he doesn’t pay back and bailouts from dad.

so your position on this is that the IRS is so incompetent that they cannot find a billionaire cheating one his taxes for years?????????
Let's not pretend like a billionaire doesn't have the money to spend to impede the IRS through lengthy legal battles. It's not as if the big massive IRS is going after the average Joe.

Second, weakening the IRS has long been a goal of the right, so yeah, the IRS isn't nearly as effective of an agency as it should be.

would that be the same IRS that targeted conservative groups under obama? The same IRS that lost several suits when those groups challenged their actions?

No one has an issue with the IRS doing its job and collecting every penny owed by every american. Making a political weapon of the IRS, as Obama did, is a crime and should be prosecuted.

splitting hairs, it was settled in his favor, if they had gone to court CNN would have paid a larger amount and would have had much larger legal expenses. the record shows a settlement against CNN whether in or out of court.

It's not splitting hairs, it's a massive difference. A settlement is not a finding of fact or guilt. If Sandmann's lawyers thought they were sure to get a much larger settlement in court, they would have done so because that would have been in their client's best interest. If CNN was able to settle the lawsuit for less than the cost of winning in court, it makes sense for CNN to settle.

Either way, this was not a decision in this case. That's not splitting hairs, that's you not being honest (or rather not knowing what you're talking about which I wager is more likely, and that's okay to get things wrong, but it's not okay to refuse to admit it).

Let's say the $750 figure is true. My long held notion is that no matter which party is in power, the chances of our tax code being what us hoi polloi (I picked that up from a Three Stooges short ages ago) think it should be lay somewhere between nil and none.
