Despite denial, records show Romney owned Bermuda shell corporation before forming blind trust

The problem with Romney’s claim? The Bermuda corporation—Sankaty High Yield Asset Investors—was registered in 1997 and Romney was listed as the “the sole shareholder, a director, and president” of the corporation. The Bermuda corporation was under his personal ownership until it was transferred into a blind trust in his wife’s name the day before he was sworn in as governor, possibly to avoid disclosure. In fact, the one full tax return Romney did release shows that he directly owned the company as recently in 2010 and it was not held in his trust.

Mitt Romney’s continued dishonesty on his investments in offshore tax havens and corporations raises serious questions about why he won’t release his tax returns. Only a release of additional tax returns will allow us to see if Romney avoided U.S. taxes with his offshore holdings.

Cute.  It was about this point in 2008 that Daily Kos (and on the DNC payroll), out of the blue  released the first Obama birth certificate, or rather falsified Certificate of Live Birth that went through a series of revisions to keep up with the debunking.  That saga still continues. As well as SS-gate (Ohio PI challenges Obama’s ballot eligibility based on fraudulent SSN) and Columbia-gate (Obama's 'missing year' at Columbia found?).  Whatever floats yout boat, eh Zuniga?  

Mincing and Tooth Gaps

Mincing Words

Okay, I've gone into "all-or-nothing" mode watching "A Touch of Frost" (I'm  on #26).  At two hours per episode,  it takes up a fair amount of time (which I've stolen from my spackling and tile set-aside.).  I just love it,  but there is just one little thing that snaps me out of my reverie from time to time.  You know, like when Lauren Hutton's  tooth gap made you pause in your love making before you were married?    Inspector Frost walks like Truman Capote.

Okay, "Stupid" then ...

Earnestly written by the veddy smug and ignorant

The Lethal Presidency of Barack Obama

"You have never spoken of Abdulrahman al-Awlaki. Though you probably approved the strike that killed him, you have never mentioned his name in public. Though he was an American citizen killed by an American drone, you have kept the circumstances of his death secret...(?) You have become the Lethal President."

"This is the consuming irony of the Lethal Presidency. You have become the Lethal President because you are also the Rule-of-Law President. You have been able to kill our enemies because you have forsworn waterboarding them. You have become the first president to execute without trial an American citizen because you hired...lawyers renowned for their blistering attacks on the legal memos that justified the Bush administration's use of torture to write the legal memos that justified the execution without trial of an American citizen."

" ...because you are also the Rule-of-Law President." is not quite as good as "Axelrod Calls Romney ‘Most Secretive Candidate’ Since Nixon," but it's up there.  Yes Virginia, euthanasia, like lynching ... . Never mind.

By the way, yes, it does bother me that there's a certain smugness in calling people smug.  I guess it comes down to whether my observations are better than the smug bastids that pollute my world,

The Curley Factor

In Maryland, Higher Taxes Chase Out Rich: Study

Res Ipsa Loquitor

The honorable Gentleman is saying that he would rather that the poor were poorer, provided that the rich were less rich. That way one will never create the wealth for better social services, as we have. What a policy. Yes, he would rather have the poor poorer, provided that the rich were less rich. That is the Liberal policy. PM Margaret Thatcher (from my book, "Twenty-Two Greatest Truths Known To Mankind" )

A new report says wealthy Maryland residents may be moving out due to recent tax hikes – a finding that is sure to escalate the battle over taxing the American rich.

The study, by the anti-tax group Change Maryland, says that a net 31,000 residents left the state between 2007 and 2010, the tenure of a "millionaire's tax" pushed through by Gov. Martin O'Malley. The tax, which expired in 2010, in imposed a rate of 6.25 percent on incomes of more than $1 million a year.

The Change Maryland study found that the tax cost Maryland $1.7 billion in lost tax revenues. A county-by-county analysis by Change Maryland also found that the state’s wealthiest counties also had some of the largest population outflows.

The "LIBERALS" DNA Strand Decoded
As an aside, and not to toot my own horn, but O'Malley shares DNA traits with all Liberals that, among others,   make it impossible for them to understand basic economics (see roll-over detail).  It's a pity then, that given this technology, candidates for public office are not screened.
