Warren Buffett Owes 1 Billion in Back Taxes. When Warren says the rich should pay more taxes you can bet he’s not referring to himself. We wonder if the winner of the annual lunch with Warren Buffet prize gets stuck with the bill?

And has for some time as he has been fighting this for years. Hypocrisy of this guy is over the top.

He is a role model for libs. Hypocrisy seems to be an art form for these people. And I think they get added cred for being able to grab the spotlight and spew their hypocrisy to the entire world with a straight face. It’s like a freaking GAME, I think.

Buffett is a complete phoney. It’s sad that so many people fall for his folksy aw shucks routine. He is anything but.

Time to pay the Tax Man Warren. No creditability at all for the blow hard with all the answers. Hired the best lawyers to cheat on his fair share.

I’ve been in the wine, but I’m wondering if his real last name is Madoff.

For a guy advocating people paying more in taxes, he sure works hard on not paying his. Hey Warren, want to obtain some credibility? How about coughing up the billions you owe there asshole.

I’d love to see the look on his face if the tax increases for the rich actually go into effect.

Hi face won’t change. Because he will not pay his taxes anyway. He will hire some sleaze-bag tax cheats to lie, cheat and manipulate – and then stall for years as he continues to make more and more money with that tax money, and then, maybe he will negotiate with the feds to pay a portion of it. By which time, he will have already more than doubled the value of those tax moneys.

You know, the other day it occurred to me – business already pays WAY more tax than they get credit for. Look at BP oil. They just agreed to pay the Feds like 4.5 BILLION dollars because of the oil spill. That was not “clean up” money. It was not “relief” money. It was not restitution money. It was not even a “fine” per se. It was a payoff in exchange for CRIMINAL charges being dropped against them.

All those other things have either been negotiated or will be. How many billions will that cost them? That is above and beyond their corporate taxes, income taxes, sales taxes and the millions of other taxes that they pay every year.

Note to naive little boys: that is not CORPORATE greed. That would be GOVERNMENT greed. Just another way for them to reach in the pockets of the middle class, to take more for handouts to the poor.

But Kaarma, don’t you know that GOVERNMENT greed is good, as long as it steals from corporations and working people to give crawley and his ilk FREE SHIT.

Spent is a rather kind word, Poppa. I would have used “wasted.” Or maybe, “bought votes with,” or “gained more power with.”

Let’s see what you wagered: Eleventy billion dollars. That’s not even a real number. Keanu Reeves: Yet. Alex Trebek: That’s simply amazing.
