    Hell, I want Joe the Plumber to be my president. He's got more common sense than the either of them.

    Instead of focusing on the candidate and his proposed policies the news media tries to destroy someone who asks a question. It was reported this afternoon that Joe the Plumber has a lien against him for not paying his property taxes on time. What a bunch of low lifes.

    OK, pretend it's "Bob the Builder" asking the same question. Heck, pretend it's a hypothetical question which essentially was:

    "Do you believe in the American dream? I’m being taxed more and more for fulfilling the American dream."

    Obama's reply was:

    "It's not that I want to punish your success. I just want to make sure that everybody who is behind you, that they've got a chance for success too. I think when you spread the wealth around, it's good for everybody."

    WHAT?!!! How the hell is it good for anybody?!!! Sounds to me like it hinders the drive to success, while promoting the drive to be lazy. How is it good for Bob? Wealth is spread by the likes of BOB! Bob hires workers and pays them a wage. Bob buys goods and services from other Bob's who also own businesses who also hire workers. This is capitalism in a free market system at work. But these ignorant Obama supporters somehow think a socialist system is better. AMAZING..! They have no grasp of the concept of freedom.

    Further, doesn't everyone have the "chance for success too"? Heck with affirmative action some have an unfair advantage at success. cls

    Very interesting little investigation on the "plumber". Swiftboats go in both directions.



    "In the end, a person can fight a swiftboating claim against them by making all their records available for public viewing. For swiftboating to work, it must be stonewalled and the truth hidden."




    Judge for yourself, this is the plumber's response, so far, to the claims:


    "However, there are reports today that Joe has cancelled any future interviews. He was set to do the media tour and has decided to go underground. "

    "Swiftboating" is a very poor term as far as I'm concerned. Those Swiftboat vets who told their version of Kerry's story, were telling the truth! The left has used the term Swiftboating to describe something deceitful. cls

    Tshooter92...........Get your facts straight before you criticize. BO was in Joe's neighborhood. No Repub plant, no set-up, just straight-up honest question by a guy interested in buying a business. It's obvious you've never owned your own business and paid all the taxes/withholdings employers pay and pay on behalf of employees, etc.. I've owned my own small business (less than 20 employees) since 1978 and I'm sick of people like BO reaching in "my" pocket for just a "little" more so they can "spread it around to the less fortunate". If you're less fortunate, get out and work a little harder or start your own business and find out what it's really like to be the Employer. And as for his property taxes, don't jump down his throat before you know the facts. May be an oversight, may be a Tax Collector mistake, may be ?. Last, look at what BO and Biden are saying about Joe Plumber now. They've turned on him like a pack of dogs! Hypocrites.

    I live maybe 10 miles from Joe "the plumber". The Toledo Blade just ran an article saying he made 40,000 last year and the company he wants to buy has no city license.To make matters worse the Blade reported that the State of Ohio has put a lien on him for $1100 in personal property taxes not paid....Don't think McCain did him any favors and not sure why Joe's so worried about that "tax hike"?

    Attention: All plumbing experts: In Ohio, each plumber is not required to have a plumber's license. In a commercial business, only 1 license is required to register ALL employees, but the dude holding the license is technically responsible for the quality. The largest union plumber in Toledo has 1 licensed plumber. One word "L I A B I L I T Y".

    Just how is the media gaining access to private tax information? Or are they unlawfully having a credit check done on hiim?

    Apparently it's not private but rather public record.

    "According to records on file with the Lucas County Court of Common Pleas, the state filed a tax lien against Samuel J. Wurzelbacher for $1,182.98 on Jan. 26, 2007, that is still active."

    I found out I had a tax lien for something like 300 bucks last year when I was opening a new account with my bank. Turns out it was for a recreational vehicle tax for a boat that I sold several years prior. The county never sent me anything stating such. Thankfully the bank asked what the lien was and I had to go to the county assessor and find out for myself. Sometimes things aren't always what they seem (or what the media wants you to believe).

    The lien could have been placed for many things. New sewer, new sidewalk, new street whatever the local government decides. If he doesn't pay the special assesment he gets a Lien. Happens everyday, mellow out or BFD.

    Maybe his mortgage company didn't pay it.......that happens. If he has a mortgage normally that is in the payment he makes to them......maybe it was Countrywide LOL. We have had that happen before, where our loan was sold and things didn't get done.

    Just a thought here........but, the issue is not Joe the plumber, or whether or not he has a license........

    It is the taxes that are going to be used to redistribute wealth in this country....last I checked we are not a socialist country....but we sure are headed that way.
