You know what’s funny? Over the last few days,some people on Facebook and on some blogs who aren’t anywhere close to Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s level of income, and have no fundamental level of proper tax knowledge seem to be spending an enormous amount of time clarifying and defending the contents of Romney’s annual tax returns in minutiae which were released this past week . What are these people, all expert tax accountants now? When did this happen?Hey, with all this new and sudden CPA blood out there, it should be a great 2012 for all of us! Oh man, no more H&R Block, yippie! This is going to be great, I can feel like a modern day Daddy Warchest (or whatever the hell that guy’s name was), now!
I digress. Since there are so many of these folks (new CPAs) out there, we should now all be able to access this elusive Romney rate we’ve all heard about, and Boy-oh-boy I can’t wait! Hey Switzerland & Cayman Islands, here I come!
Look people, if you want to argue and start throwing numbers around in your Facebook status arguments as your “facts” in your pro Richy Romney rant, you better source them, properly! I’m positive it’s not as easy to do Mitt Romney level taxes, as you all seem to be claiming, so don’t try to tell me this if you simply do the math crap; at the end of the day all you look like is an idiot because most of you are getting it all wrong.
The bottom line is this: we have no clue what tax law loopholes are in play in Romney’s returns; and the most glaringly obvious truth of them all is that most of us will never see Mitt money in our lifetime. So, all you know-it-alls should do the rest of us a favor: stop writing your uninformed and poorly researched diatribes on Facebook, acting like you are the foremost authority and understand the nuances of tax law for wealthy people. Leave that to trained accounting and tax law professionals to explain. Spend your time arguing what you know more about: such as what should be taken out of the freezer to defrost for dinner, or are there enough Brillo pads to clean all those dirty pots you left food on from last night, or did you pick up your socks off the floor and throw them in the hamper, or did the wife get the oil changed in the van. You know, common people issues.
Are you with me!?
