49. It was a really stupid statement, but hey we live in the times of GWB
so why not! I have to admit I love reading everyones detailed argument on how western civilization depends on each and everyone paying their taxes...AS IF. Wouldn't that be a dream if everyone paid all their taxes on time and over their lifetime.

Wake up Dorthy and get in the fastlane! It is only a dream that will never happen.

So how bout let a house burn down over $75 dollars, so we can watch how many thousands it will cost in damages to the folks that wouldn't pay up. Wow, what a statement! :dunce:

It is sad no one saved the animals, since there was so much time. Guess personal agendas are far more important than life.
