Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-ipwad) Finally Pays Taxes on Her Private Plane

What is it with Democrats and not paying taxes? Claire McCaskill has never struck me as the sharpest knife in the Democrat drawer, from her lackluster appearances on the Sunday morning shows, but here, she shows the same tin ear most Democrat politicians do when it comes to meeting their civic obligations.

In a conference call with reporters, Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill just disclosed that she failed to pay $287,000 in property taxes related to her co-ownership of a private aircraft. This scandal comes quickly on the heels of recent revelations that McCaskill improperly billed taxpayers for use of the same private aircraft, for which McCaskill reimbursed the Treasury $88,000

Tom Daschle gets chauffeured around in a limo and “forgets” to pay his fair share of taxes for the privilege. Turbo Tax Timmy Geithner “forgets” to pay his taxes. Claire McCaskill flies around in her own private plane and “forgets” to pay taxes on it (and inappropriately bills some of the expenses to the taxpayer to boot!).

Maybe she’s angling for a cabinet position in the Obama administration?

    That’s my Senator! ….Really sad day when she was elected, after serving as an iffy State Auditor and a failed Gubernatorial Campaign. It looked like she just kept running for open offices until she lucked out. Unfortunately she lucked out into the Senate.

    And reading her facebook anyway, she has really come up in my opinion lately on certain things, then this. I told her on her page, that she was perpetuating the stereotype.

      You should have called her a “dip-wad”, because that would have been very mature and she would have taken you seriously. Almost as serious as people take this story, or the person who authored it.

          Taking out the trash is more interesting than trying to get you to debate meaningfully about any topic.

          You simply are incapable. You are a professional asshole. It’s why your wife left you. But you know this, because it’s why you need acceptance from somebody, even if it’s just right wing radicals who pretend on a blog.

            Said by you, the man who brags about boning prostitutes with STDs, because you can only get laid by paying money, this really doesn’t mean a whole lot.

            Said by you, the guy who pulled away from life and makes things up about people in order to pretend to compete against them and how has to post you tube images making fun of them because you are a child.

            You are lying and making a fool of yourself, and children suck it up.

            Says the pathetic little man who says he almost lost his job to be here. Who creates imaginary friends to like his posts and back him up in arguments. Who pretends to be his intellectual superiors to try and make them look stupid in others’ eyes.

            Shut up imbecile. No one thinks you’re intelligent. And no one takes insults from you seriously. You’re a pathetic little troll who is, at best, an annoyance, and a time waster.

          • Hannitized, Proofs obsession

            You believe that because you have the reading comprehension of a 5 yr old. I said people tried to get me fired by contacting my employer, not that I almost lost my job. My job is not threatened by moronic Tea Party people who can’t handle reality and play fairly. You are too stupid to understand the difference.

            Your insults are an example of how you guys twist reality so that you can accept it.

            “Nobody thinks I am intelligent”? First of all, nobody here “thinks”, that’s obvious by the conclusions that are made and by the commentary. If you did “think”, there wouldn’t be so much hypocrisy. Instead, what you people do is make the opposite assertion of what you think your opponent stands for.

            Libya is a perfect example of how quickly you flip flop on your ideals and principles.

            Secondly, who cares what you guys think? Give me a break, you only pretend to appreciate alternative points of view to look rational. You guys pound on any visitor who has the inclination to present an alternative point of view. I am just here to shine the light on the stupidity of 90% of the comments made here. Of course none of you appreciate that or respect it.

            You are a DJ. I make a difference in my community in the business world, with my state and local government and the educational systems. That’s reality. Now make something up so you can feel better about yourself.

            You take yourself out? How often? You are a joke Wankertized. You say I’m “obsessed” with you, but you can’t stay away from reading whatever I write and making mostly insulting and inane comments about it. That ain’t “debate” , Dwarf Dingleberry. Your whole Internet persona, as exemplified by your screen name, (complete with punctuation error), is built around your obsession with me.

            You like to pretend that SAB and I are not “relevant”, yet you show up here nearly every day (when you’re supposed to be working, no doubt). Why bother if we’re “irrelevant”?

            I know you try to denigrate me, because of your extreme jealousy. If you can’t be me, as you want to, so badly you can taste it, you want to bring me down, so that you don’t feel like such a mental midget. You try to copy what I say and how I say it, but it can’t mask the sound of the wind whistling through the vast, empty canyons of your head, Tranni.

            You may now return to your irrelevance (and as much projection as a multiplex).

          • Hannitized, Proofs obsession

            I don’t think anyone could read what you wrote and not smell the B.S. It was a pathetic attempt at trying to convince yourself of something. You certainly don’t convince others of anything except that you would like for me to stop tearing at the childish logic of this site.

            Sorry, it’s too much fun to point out the stupidity of people like you and the rest at SAB.

            You can stop pretending now, Wankertized, no one believes you! It’s like when you pretend to debate, but can’t or won’t even answer a simple yes or no question as to whether one sovereign nation firing cruise missiles into another is an “act of war”. Nothing you bleat here rises to the level of “debate”, Pabulum Puking Poseuritized.

            As far as what you laughingly characterize as the “childish logic of this site”, that’s projection again. Only your comments qualify as that. Perhaps, should you ever complete the second grade, you might gain a different perspective?

            If it is such childish logic on this site, one would have to wonder why he would even bother to post his drivel on this site. I guess he doesn’t just understand the discussions are way too deep for him on here. He must be on of those whom just likes to hear himself.

          Notice how he begins virtually every comment of his with an insult? Then he bleats about how no one will “debate” him seriously. It takes a lot of courage for him to insult so many people from the safety of his Mom’s basement! I’m thinking, in person, he lets his boyfriend stick up for him. NTTAWWT.

          • Bat One

            True that. But even his insults are churlish, small-minded, and pedestrian. Nothing inventive, challenging, or artfully constructed. Nothing intellectually admirable. Just more predictable, petty name-calling. A boorish bore.

          Using Bill Maher’s joke was an attempt to get you to realize your hypocrisy. Obviously that was three levels over your head.

    So in true impartial application of the law, Ms. McCaskill would be occupying a cell right next to that other tax cheat – Wesley Snipes. Actually, there’s enough of the Democrats that have been caught fo r this now that they could occupy an entire wing in the pokey.
