No, I can't imagine writing a check for that much, because I'm not a FUCKING BILLIONAIRE.

So was the point of this piece to make us pity this man and lobby our congresspeople to enact legislation that would let him keep more of the money he looks to have labored so hard for? Or is it just supposed to be a reminder of how fucking colossal the wealth gap in this country has gotten?

It's John Stossel, it's point is to make idiots like cena mark sleep better.

eatenmyeyes
How does that square with his views on professional wrestling?

If you give me a billion dollars a year, I will jump out of bed and write that check every damn day. Hell, I'll even put a smiley face in the freaking memo section. Honestly, I've never understood why people in this country believe rich people are somehow the ONLY PEOPLE on Earth who could possibly do their job and we're so blessed they deign to only take million in yearly bonuses for doing what they do. It's like we're still living under the divine right of kings or something.

He must have a shitty accountant if he's paying that much in taxes. Smart millionaires/billionaires find all the loopholes and tax shelters so they don't pay squat.

RomancingTrain
Oh no, it would take them almost 300 years to take all his money away!
Tom Collins
Imagine how many children's lives he could save with that '800 a day. Fuck you, America, when will you think of the super rich?

I'm not a Homosexual, but I gotta say, John Stossel is one sexy man.

Something about his whiny delivery...sigh

Believe me, honey, if I WERE a Homosexual, I'd only be interested in white meat.

Just a couple quick FYIs:

~I'm not really sure Golisano is saying that he pays only about 5 million on state income tax if he were to still be living in New York. It might have been that New York was going to bump his taxes up another 5 million dollars. Still though, complaining about less than a half of a percent of your wealth going to taxes? *makes wanking gesture*

~His Forbes.com page (remove the space that gets put in after the 64th character): http://www.forbes.com/finance/lists/10/2004/LIR.jhtml?passListId=1 0&passYear=2004&passListType=Person&uniqueId=BBWS&datatype=Person< br />
~Don't know that much about him, but after doing a quick googling on him, I guess he was a big clown in New York. Maybe some poeTVers have more info on him?

~So I guess Gommorrah got banned from here the other day. That's pretty great news, but it looks like we're going to have to find another person willing to post videos showing us how awful the United States and Israel are. In other news, Heyheymastequila and Whitewater5 were also banned the other day. I wonder if there's a connection... hmmmm...

~Just found out my new favorite youtube poster, SilentNight700, has published a book with her mom's help.

1 star for the wall of text and for going off topic. What the fuck are you going to do about it?

Wait, am I supposed to feel sorry for him?
SteamPoweredKleenex
Or vote in people to give him a tax cut. Or both.

And Stossel is a deceiving cunt.

Be sure to save some tears for the hundred-thousandaire that has to pay .38 in taxes per day.

Hey, come on people, have some compassion. The poor guy had to move from his New York mansion to his mansion in Florida.
