Talk about nitpicking.
When exactly did I say that?
I said that 30, not 9, parking tickets might be a contributing cause to me not voting for a candidate, in that it demonstrates a contempt for the rules (however trivial) we are expected to obey. I never said such a candidate should be disqualified for such offenses, but I find it highly likely that such a record would cost him votes. And in a state such as NC, where a Democratic Senate candidate faces an uphill battle anyway, a few such votes could make the difference.
Now, ratchet it up a few notches. We're not talking about parking tickets (I raised the point as an example of the "some of us are more equal than others" mentality), but about property taxes in sums which to the average citizen are substantial. It is my judgment that this issue will be sufficient -- not to disqualify Edwards (that was your term, not mine) -- but to defeat him.
Thanks .. I didn't have this one saved
Hmmmm .... so he wants to raise our taxes ... but can't paying them himself huh??
I can't wait to see what his tax returns look like
I think this refers to the "due on September 1st, delinquent on January 1" type of lateness.
I think most Freepers would pay the bill, in full, on 31 December under those conditions. So technically, these people would be late on their taxes every time they paid them.
Anyone can be one minute late for a meter to see the meter maid there with the ticket already written. I don't think that counts as a moral failing, no matter how many times it happens.
Never received his tax bill? Don't most of us know approx period our property tax bills come out? I certainly know when the deadline is before interest/late fees begin to accumlate. Wouldn't the average taxpayer inquire of the tax office if he had not received his bill?
I certainly would not want such a careless lawyer to represent me - much less be my president.
I have absolutely no clue when our property tax bills come out, or when they are due. The mortgage company takes care of that out of our escrow. I've never even SEEN a separate property tax bill. When and if we pay off the house, we'll deal with the property tax bill ourselves, but we never have yet.
Dang. Every now and then I get a sharp reminder of why I should never run for public office...
