Columnist suggests Phil Mickelson
should downsize so he can
afford fuel for his plane

Associated Press, by Tim Dahlberg

Original Article

Posted By:BuckeyeRon, 1/24/2013 8:32:30 AM

It´s not always easy being rich, as Phil Mickelson reminded us the other day. There are taxes to pay—apparently lots of them—and the price of a tank of jet fuel seems to go up every day. A million dollars a week just doesn´t go as far as it used to, now that the wealthy are paying more in taxes. For Mickelson, things have gotten so bad that he´s thinking of moving from California so the state doesn´t get a cut of the $47 million that Golf Digest estimates he made last year. Thankfully, it´s not quite to the point

Phil is such a wuss. Apologizing for having an opinion! He deserves the scorn and derision he will get from now on.

Talking about his situation was not smart....just provides fodder for the columnists. Is this all you´ve got Dahlberg...not even funny. Order some pizza, go back downstairs to your Mom´s basement and turn on the Golf Channel.

FTA:"GET A NEW CPA: Mickelson´s claim that he will be paying up to 62 percent of his income in taxes this year bears some scrutiny, even with higher federal and state rates for the wealthy. Consider that former presidential candidate Mitt Romney — whose net worth is estimated at $250 million — paid an average of 20.2 percent of his income the past 20 years in taxes, and you have to wonder about the math."

No, Tim you moron........Lefty´s winnings are considered INCOME, and Romney is taxed on INVESTMENTS, two totally different things.

You moron. You filthy, anti-American leftist moron.

You know less about math than I do about conjugating Serbian verbs.

States to leave if possible: California, Illinois, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York and Michigan. However, the states one may consider moving to may not want migrants because of their liberal attitudes and the relatives they may bring with them.

Let´s see if these same moonbat leftists attack Tiger Woods for admitting he left California and moved to Florida because of the state income taxes.

Surely Texas has already extended an invitation for Phil and family to move to the Lone Star State.

To clarify:

Hate Speech Law & Legal Definition

"Hate speech is a communication that carries no meaning other than the expression of hatred for some group, especially in circumstances in which the communication is likely to provoke violence. It is an incitement to hatred primarily against a group of persons defined in terms of race, ethnicity, national origin, gender, religion, sexual orientation, and the like. Hate speech can be any form of expression regarded as offensive to racial, ethnic and religious groups and other discrete minorities or to women."


Yep, every Lib alive does this every day, and Obama does it constantly...and everyone seems OK with that!

I think it is way past time to call a spade a spade! (No racial pun intended, simply using an old saying to make a point.)

Don´t talk about moving and why, just move and let the people figure it out for themselves. Mickelson owes nobody any explanations for the decisions he makes that are in the best interests of he and his family.

I think the point is (Wuss apologizing or not) that Phil Mickleson EARNED that $ himself and we should congratulate him, no demean him. That is what America is supposed to be about: WORK HARD and sacrifice (on the road 200 days a year etc.) and you may succeed!

Spew this bile in front of the people who work at the factories that make the private jets or the suppliers that supply the materials and be man enough to explain why their job is less important than somebody working at a windmill factory.

Libs think that such consumption only benefits the person doing the consuming.

Phil: I´m glad you´re rich. I hope you you get even richer. You worked for it and you earned it fair and square. Now, just a little advice: don´t complain, don´t explain, and for Pete´s sake - don´t ever apologize again. Now, go hit ´em straight.

Notice how they demonize a rich guy for wanting to keep the money HE earned!
The left knows most of us are not rich, so they work on him, knowing people will be jealous and not support him. Once its established that wanting to keep you money is selfish, the level of people taxed at these rates can be slowly adjusted down to include all of us.
This is exactly how communist work. They make everyone jelous of their neighboors to the point they will report on each other.

Phil has a very good side. I like him. He became frustrated and spouted off. As another poster said, he should have just quietly moved out of kalifornia and let people speculate why. Now if he moves, all the lefty media horse will call him a greedy malcontent.

On a related topic, over a decade ago another one of my favorite golfers----Craig Stadler---- left California and migrated to Colorado because of high taxes. He said so. Since then, Colorado has fallen way to the left. It would not be a surprise if Craig moved again as Colorado taxes continue to rise.

If Phil were the wuss some are stating he certainly would never have made the comments. He was speaking for all of us who think taxes are too high and he was making a statement. The reality is all the left media whores have nothing but envy and hate for the guys who do what they can only write about. He apologised because he realizes it´s a media fight he has no chance of winning.

Phil earns money by entertaining people. The Left sneers at him for that. In the next breath they fawn over Hollywood pukes that do the same. The difference between Phil and those Hollywood pukes is that he can do what only a handful of people in the world can do, while they do what anyone with a nose full of blow can do.

Phil and Amy have done more charitable work and given more of themselves than any bedwetting liberal out there today, and more than any Democrat politician who has ever lived. Phil should tell them to shove it, but he´s too nice a guy. I´m not.

Shove it.

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: I´ve gotta tell, another little thing about Nelson Mandela. Do you realize in a couple of ways, maybe even more than a couple, Nelson Mandela has more in common or had more in common with Clarence Thomas than he does with Barack Obama? For example, Nelson Mandela (even prior to becoming president, but certainly after he became president of South Africa) insisted on compliance with his country´s constitution. He insisted on it. Obama looks at the US Constitution as an obstacle and makes end runs around it every day, practically. In that sense... These are the kind of

The U.S. federal health insurance website HealthCare.gov, which has had technology problems since its October 1 launch, is now experiencing errors in transmitting applications about 10 percent of the time, a government spokeswoman said on Friday. The online insurance marketplace relays information about new customers in ´834´ transaction forms to the private insurance companies that provide the health plans. HealthCare.gov serves people in 36 states, while 14 states are running their own websites. "We believe nine of 10 transactions are being successfully transmitted," the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, or CMS, spokeswoman Julie Bataille said at a news briefing.

While Mr. Cochran, who turns 76 on Saturday, has the support of many leading Republicans in the state, he is already facing opposition from Chris McDaniel, 41, a state senator aligned with the Tea Party who announced his candidacy in October and has won the support of some conservative groups.

Rep. James Sensenbrenner Jr., the original author of the Patriot Act, says Director of National Intelligence James Clapper should be prosecuted for lying to Congress. "Lying to Congress is a federal offense, and Clapper ought to be fired and prosecuted for it," the Wisconsin Republican said in an interview with The Hill. He said the Justice Department should prosecute Clapper for giving false testimony during a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing in March. During that hearing, Sen.

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively
