Poor Phil backing down from his comments. At least Tiger has a set of balls, but he’s black so the media won’t attack him (for this).

I’m actually going to resort to the ‘corporate greed’ argument on this one. Does anyone doubt that his sponsors didn’t call him and bitch and moan about the media outrage over his original statement? That’s how it works folks. The corporations roll over to the media because it’s the thing to do. It’s not so much greed as it is being successful, but their only stake in the game is going along with what makes them money. If our views and opinions were mainstream, they’d go along with us too. They’re not liberals or conservatives or libertarians, just entities that try and make money regardless of the political system in place.

Who the hell is “outraged” over Phil’s comment/plan? Just some minimum wage asshole journalists and who gives a shit what a journalist thinks? It seems like an intelligent and common sense financial strategy to me. Oh sorry, liberals have neither common sense nor intelligence.

The leftists in charge & those in the MSM know the deal. That’s why they get pissed off when someone as popular as Mickelson or Woods use their platform to bitch about tax policy. Whether they have skin thick enough to put up with the sh!t that someone like Ted Nugent has for speaking his mind is another story.

“Uncle Ted” has made a career out of putting up with shit! He speaks his mind and gets lots of “bad” press over it, but he says what the people want to hear!

I can’t blame PM for saying that. I’m betting right now there are millions and millions with the same thought, and it isn’t necessarily related to high taxation, although that is a main reason.

But move to where? All economies are affected by the US economy… anywhere one might go the same social and economic problems will develop. We need to stay and fight for our country.

But move to where?

Any state with no income tax.

The tax rates are so high in California that Tiger said it was cheaper for him to get a divorce each year.

I don’t blame him. I would much rather give my money to some skank than to the gooberment. (snicker)

I’m thinking that Elin will keep a lot closer eye on him this time. I’d hate to see that prenup. Probably if he strays, she’ll stake him out with a couple tees under the ol’ sac and use a 9-iron on him.

Here is John Lydon of P.I.L.(public image limited) & The Sex Pistols, you may know him as Johnny Rotten on XM w/Opie & Anthony. Start at 2:00 & go through 4:20. It’s about taxes, & gets into Benny Hill’s tax issues…
