<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">A new ad released by the Obama campaign Thursday suggests that Mitt Romney might have paid nothing in taxes at some point. The ad plays a clip of a recent interview in which <span style='font-size: 14pt'>Romney said he was "happy to go back and look" to see if he had paid a rate lower than 13.9 percent -- but he never did get back to the voters on that.</span>

"Did Romney pay 10 percent in taxes? 5 percent? Zero?" asks a narrator. "We donít know." </div></div>

No we don't. But Hey, Romney is a man of God and can always be trusted.

At its core, the son of Boss tax shelter involves the same concept employed by other tax shelters to reduce or eliminate capital gains: the creation of an artificial tax loss to offset a taxable gain. <span style='font-size: 14pt'>What sets the son of Boss tax shelter apart is the magnitude of tax dollars lost to the U.S. Treasury, as well as the tortured logic of its creators.</span> Understanding how the son of Boss transaction distorts economic reality offers an insight into how all tax shelters work, as well as how the dysfunctional nature of our current tax code provides the opportunity to attain such illogical results. </div></div>

We'll NEVER see them. Never!

Romney took the word CROOK, to a whole new level.

He's done it all! Even used money from death squads to launch Bain!

He is exactly the kind of American PIG, that destroyed out economy!

I still would like to see some hot shot cocaine dealer show up on Wall ST. with a killer-pure Batch! /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/grin.gif Take 'em all out in one weekend! /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/wink.gif

It's hard to explain, but at least it has the catchy title-- Son of Boss! Even though Boss is an acronym, it's redolent of Boss Hogg, or Boss Romney-- bad bosses everyone has had at one time or another. The boss that fired you, the boss that unfairly exploits you. The Man.

Also, world's largest tax evasion scheme has a nice understandable ring to it as well.
