As Romney belatedly releases his tax returns, many experts question their authenticity, converting the documents to PDF and examining them for hidden layers. According to Sen. Harry Reid, some of the tax tables used were not in effect at the time of the alleged "returns."
This issue of the New York Times examines the controversial GOP candidate's "taxes" debacle in a series of articles appearing on its front page under the following headlines:

Special thanks to Tovarichi for the idea!
Sorry for the babbling, the two comrades in me have been fighting a rough but principled proletarian revolution between them lately, replete of plots and purges.
That along with QE374 and soon we'll all be equally RICH!
Once again, the topic and graphics here has caused me to soil my personal garments.
I simply must be compensated for my cleaning bill!
You know, like the nun at the Democrat convention who said, "We're better people." I didn't know that nuns no longer considered humility a virtue, only their own hubris, but then we're all in this together, aren't we, progs? Except for the people who have to pay.
And that's what I mean. I'm a prog. Which means that I am de facto superior to other people. Because I say that I am.
Now I'm trying, as we all are, to make it de jure also. We are working for our own set of Jim Crow laws but for free speech.
After all, if the president of Pahkistahn can call for peace by outlawing insults to the Prophet, then the complete quelling of free speech is nigh.
I cannot tell you how happy I am that ThoughtCrime™ will soon be punishable legally. Because it's a crime if I think that it is.

This is sheer bliss. What could be better than a KSR-33 reading paper tape? Screw that iPhone. Screw that fancy Intel hardware. What's that Penryn stuff? Gimme a 4004! That's what I want. That's true Prog chic! A 4004!
I'll be happy with a couple of old tin cans that still have a bar code on them, connected together with twine. It's more important -- to me at least -- that I have a kick starter for my camel.
My "camel" is an Audi with a W-12 engine. I mean, I can't get to all the impalings, auto-da-fes, and Maoist self-criticism, much less the ritual cleansings without that baby. Would a prole really feel that he'd been done to death in a dignified manner if I, Father Prog, hadn't watched him be impaled?
Bear in mind that if you think that we will eat you last, you've already been eaten.
I "hear" what your sayin'. My bumpersticker, which was rush-shipped to me, just in time for the up and coming Obama Famine by Mrs. Al, says "My other 'car' is a camel". She explained to me that a "camel kick starter" is very new technology for the 7th Century crowd, which consists of placing a firecracker up the camel's arse.
The difference between a "camel" with a W-12 and one with a kick starter is you can eat one, but not the other.
Also please note that in the California of Saudi Arabia, they sell camels for good eatin', and they even let some women drive cars.
That I don't know about. After all, being a prog is never letting anyone do anything he wants to do, except for sex, then it's get off, get off, get off.
But responsibility? Never. That's why we're progs. We hate personal responsibility and we're always aching to put responsibility on other people.
That is after all the very definition of a prog. "It's HIS fault, and bow and scrape to me because my thoughts are Pure, my intentions Good, and therefore the sun shines out my ass. Take it as read."
Has Belkin made a deal with Lord O? Bear in mind that the only thing that matters is being in on the con.
That's the only thing that matters. Reality matters nought; truth is an inconvenient happenstance. And it's a happenstance, and not truth. There is no causality, only circumstantial evidence.
Which we can manufacture as we will.
There it is. Move along, nothing to see here, nothing to see here, as I spit on my palms and gleefully go about the necessary effort of depriving others of their rights and properties.
Because I'm a Made Prog, and because the sun shines out my ass. Just because it's my ass.
Don't tell Lord O that though; he thinks the sun shines out his ass.
