Top Investment Executive...Where Bill And Hillary Clinton Have Their Portfolios...Pleads Guilty To Bogus Tax Shelters...

The former top executive of a once-prominent investment firm in Seattle pleaded guilty on Friday to charges involving questionable tax shelters that the firm sold to wealthy investors. 

The executive, Jeffrey I. Greenstein, is a former chief executive and a co-founder of the Quellos Group, whose main business was bought by the global investment firm BlackRock for $1.7 billion in 2007.

Quellos had a roster of star clients, including former President Bill Clinton and Hillary Rodham Clinton; Robert Wood Johnson IV, the owner of the New York Jets; and the Hollywood mogul Haim Sabin, the producer of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers children’s show. have a look at this quote from Hillary:  "The rich are not paying their fair share in any nation that is facing the kind of employment issues [America currently does] — whether it's individual, corporate or whatever [form of] taxation forms," Clinton told an audience at the Brookings Institute, where she was discussing the administration's new National Security Strategy.

And while in office, Bill Clinton raised taxes for "wealthier" individuals. 

Wait. I get it. People like Bill and Hillary only want OTHER FOLKS to pay taxes. OMG...we might be on to something big here....

It just goes to show that not every rich person produced something useful in order to gain that wealth. Social engineering types might want to split that category into the "productive rich" and the "useless rich", and direct their spittle-ated marxist rhetoric with a tad more precision.

I looked at the vote boxes, but there isn't a "cool/sarcasm" one to check off.

The blasted vote boxes should have about three extra selections to choose from, but are created for gals who blog so that no one ever gets the opportunity to criticize anything.

You or I get audited and found to be lacking the shit is going to hit the fan. Years back I had a gig overseas where the money was auto-deposited in a US account and the IRS nearly flayed me alive for neglecting to tell them things it turned out they really didn't have any damned reason to know.

Didn't matter. If they've a mind to they go for the jugular and you're guilty until proven innocent.

But if your name is Clinton or Obama or from any other traitorous background then your accountant gets sent to jail and you get a mild warning.

I'm really joking of course. I love the Internal Revenue Service and am a big Clinton/Obama fan.
