Re: “Apparently Ron Ramsey's Path to Prosperity Runs Right Over Your Parents

In actuality, frequently decedents have NOT paid tax as wealth was earned as income. The larger the estate (and older the decedent) the greater the likelihood of this. It is something said with a great hue and cry, but when I have been behind closed doors with many very rich people and/or their accountants and/or trusted loved ones, I have learned that many if not most have been "shaving" off their taxes for years and seem to think it is OK, though they do not really acknowledge it, often even to themselves. If asked, they proudly state that they "Pay MY taxes", but if asked in private about specific itemized transactions by a trusted and knowledgable source, one discovers that anything BUT that is true. In fact, I was twice approached by different people to help them figure out how to help a "well-known" local multi-millionaire philanthropist who was approaching 90 to come clean with the IRS -- He had NEVER filed a return or paid income taxes!! And NO this is not a joke, but a true story. THIS is the reason there MUST be wealth transfer taxes. We have only had small income taxes since 1936 and later for all in 1955. Of course it was not ALL taxed before!

Re: “C-Span Looks at Herron-Fincher Slugfest

Herron is the only honest one in this. I can do math, and the other guy's reports and tax returns do not add up. And no, you cannot live like he does on what he reported. So do not play me for a fool. And no, I am not a paid person like some people who comment, just a person who can do math.

Re: “Free Pinkberry? Tonight? On West End?

What is so unfamiliar about frozen yogurt? TCBY and many others have been around for 20 years?.?.? I have had others more recently, but I do not see anything significant enough to act like Nashville has to "acquaint themselves with this unfamiliar new confection called 'frozen yogurt.'"

Re: “Tennessee 2nd Most Medicated State, Study Says

The poorer you are, the harder and longer you MUST try to keep working. Take the drugs to keep going at any cost. A vicious cycle for a myriad of Tennesseans. Yet I agree that no one wants to deal with the real cause -- the loss of decent wage work for Tennesseans that would allow so many to lead the healthier lifestyles.

Re: “The Pole-Dancing Councilwoman: This is a Real Headline from a Real Tennessee Paper

Ah, memories of Bill Boner waft through my mind. If only he were back on the Nashville political scene, I'll bet we could still compete.

Re: “Herron Hits Fincher on Social Security

If he really did not want to scare Seniors, then why did Fincher let those people from Washington run that Ad that will turn into pressure on him to privitize Social Security if he gets elected and lands in Washington? I have enough sense to know that is how this works, even if he does not at this point.
