Stroke the rich / IRS has become a subsidy system for super-wealthy Americans IRS winks at rich deadbeats

In the late '90s, a crooked banker gave the IRS records on 1,600 criminal tax cheats who used his Cayman Islands bank. The Justice Department prosecuted 49 of them, but the other 1,551 were not even asked to pay, lawyers for some of them say.

Two billionaires in New York, the art dealer Alec Wildenstein and his former wife, Jocelyn, testified under oath in their divorce that for 30 years they never filed a tax return. They have not been prosecuted.

There are now seminars that show business owners how to drop out of the tax system with virtually no risk of detection by the IRS, which relies on a computer system installed when John F. Kennedy was president

PBS | I, Cringely "...Bill Gates (it will still be Bill, because this will happen in the next decade I am sure) will again turn his corporate supertanker and add full power, but this time the competing ship will not only have a head start, it will be able to accelerate faster than Microsoft.

It has happened before. In fact it ALWAYS happens."

AlterSlash ~ the unofficial SlashDot digest.
Four Corners is life and its many facets. Food, technology, music, politics, culture, games, language: interrelated and intertwined. What we want to create is a place to provoke thinking, spawn creation, inspire adventure. Much time is spent in modern media discussing how separate and different everything is -- we want to fuse it all back together into the greater whole. Location doesn't matter: it's all about vectors.

[Ann Coulter

"Ann, whose gimmick is being a man pretending to be a woman pretending to be a man, details how 9/11 was the fault of Democrats -- as proven by her totally factual timeline. From it you can see that Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton didn't take any real action against our swarthy, Muslim enemies, while Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush killed people every chance they got -- so obviously no blame for 9/11 can be attributed to them. George H. Bush was a sissy Republican, so he's kind of a wash."

A. Guns are our friends. God made man and woman; Colonel Colt made them equal

B. It would be a much better country if women did not vote. That is simply a fact. In fact, in every presidential election since 1950 - except Goldwater in '64 - the Republican would have won, if only the men had voted

Past Winners of M-LAW's Wacky Warning Label Contests


A CD player carries this unusual warning: “Do not use the Ultradisc2000 as a projectile in a catapult.”

A 13-inch wheel on a wheelbarrow warns: “Not intended for highway use”

A warning on a pair of shin guards manufactured for bicyclists says: “Shin pads cannot protect any part of the body they do not cover.”
