Revenue from the Vertigo tour is funneled through companies that are mostly registered in Ireland and structured to minimize taxes. ``U2 are arch-capitalists -- arch-capitalists -- but it looks as if they're not,'' says Jim Aiken, a music promoter who helped stage U2 concerts in Ireland during the 1980s and 1990s.
Socialists John Kerry and John Edwards seem to enjoy their wealth--heck, Edwards lives in the largest and most expensive house in his county!
John Kerry was married to one of the richest people in the country,and John Edwards was a good ideological pick.No word yet on Edwards or Kerry voluntarily paying more in taxes to bridge the "gap" between the two Americas.Who ever said socialism was a movement of the downtrodden?
Actually, there was word. Massachusetts has a provision in which taxpayers can opt to pay a slightly higher tax rate--just check a block on their income tax return. Kerry chose not to.
And now the anti-war protesters, who are in reality either anti-American or anti-Bush.
None of these people are (sic) anti-war. They're only anti-America. There are about 20 wars going on in the world today and the only one that any leftist anywhere can get excited about is whatever America is doing to protect itself.
I don't heart leftists of any stripe, even when they use capitalism to make their stupid points.
