Yeah, but at least the golfers do not have to pay interest on their scorecards.

    Actually, its made criminals out of them. So pay "your" taxes... After all, those bankers need their yachts full of fuel. And private jets don't fly themselves you know! ;)

    Now telling a lie or manipulating the truth are two different things, the first is stupid and the second unethical - whenever I lie about golf my next shot is always terrible.

    Not funny. It is such a shame that Americans are unwilling to stand up against blatant criminality -- instead they lie to escape as much oppression as they can. As a result we vote for liars and condemn those that point out the 800 lb gorilla in the room. A people without honor will soon become enslaved by their own self-delusion. To be sovereign and free, we must always be honest -- even if it means being persecuted (it doesn't mean we roll over -- we fight back!). It takes COURAGE to be free, to be honest, and to care for one another. The country will cease to be the land of the free if it doesn't remain the home of the Brave. Boycott the IRS and take your stand.

    It's true, almost every small biz that I know has expounded on the truth.
