#1 Apparently, no one at MSNBC pays taxes by Cincinnatus 23.04.2015 00:38


The count of MSNBC tax scofflaws is now up to four:

"“Regressive taxation & tax-avoidance & union crushing & the financial corruption of legislation has fueled inequality more than hard work,” MSNBC host Touré opined on his Twitter account in the winter of last year.

“Conservatives complain about takers but most red states get more from DC than they give ie [sic] takers,” he later remarked. “Most blue states give more than they get.”

For all his interest in altruism via tax policy, you would think he might pay his income taxes. Guess again.

“In September 2013, New York issued a state tax warrant to [Touré] Neblett and his wife, Rita Nakouzi, for $46,862.68. Six months later, the state issued an additional warrant to the couple for $12,849.87,” National Review’s Jillian Kay Melchior reported on Wednesday.

Touré shouldn’t feel too bad about his outstanding debt to Uncle Sam. It seems quite a few of his fellow liberal agitators on that network have also failed to pay their taxes.

“Last month, New York filed a $4,948.15 tax warrant against Joy-Ann Reid, who serves as managing editor of theGrio.com and until earlier this year hosted MSNBC’s The Reid Report, and her husband, Jason,” National Review’s report continued. “Reid has called taxes on the wealthy ‘a basic fairness argument,’ also arguing for ‘smart spending and smart tax increases’ to create economic growth.”

Reid and Neblett were perhaps following weekend host and Wake Forrest University Professor Melissa Harris-Perry’s example. Earlier this year, the IRS slapped Perry and her husband with a $70,000 bill for delinquent taxes from 2013. As Jazz observed, the fact that she was aware that she owed back taxes for over a year did not stop her from mocking Republicans like Sam Brownback for cutting his states personal tax burden and failing to see it result in booming economic growth.

“Filing my taxes,” Perry lamented in 2010. “Can I just say that with what I owe it is freaking miracle & an act of solidarity that I am still a Democrat?” After apparently being subjected to a whirlwind of anger from her liberal fans, Perry recanted. “Thanks tweeps for the reminders of how many of you are struggling with unemployment or underemployment. Will pay my taxes with a smile.”

But this is all small time. Politics Nation host Rev. Al Sharpton has refined the art of tax dodging to a science. “So far, every for-profit enterprise started by Al Sharpton and known to National Review Online has been shut down in at least one jurisdiction for failure to pay taxes, a review of public records in New York and Delaware reveals,” National Review reported in February.


“Today, Mr. Sharpton still faces personal federal tax liens of more than $3 million, and state tax liens of $777,657, according to records,” The New York Times revealed last November. “Raw Talent and Revals Communications owe another $717,329 on state and federal tax liens.”

This is truly INCREDIBLE!!!

It is ENDEMIC to the liberal pov though. Other people do not pay enough taxes.

The Kennedy clan here in MA lied that Rose Kennedy lived [and died] in Florida to avoid paying the Mass taxes due.


definition ENDEMIC!!!! : a disease or condition regularly found among particular people or in a certain area.

Timothy Geithner does that name ring a bell? nominated for Treasury Secretary for God's sake!!!


ENDEMIC !!!!!!
