He's paying 27% + in State, and local Taxes. I guess he's too stupid to understand that's part of his taxes. If I paid 20% in Banking, and investment fees, I'd be switching banks in a hurry.

He is paying more than that. We can't tell what his net/taxable income is.

I worked with Professors most of my adult life and I came to believe that most of them are not as bright as you are. They do have Ph.D.s and know a lot about one subject. Odd this guy does not know more about taxes.

Type, Copy, Mimic, Say their ABCs to the satisfaction (approval) of someone else who also did that. Take a few tests ususally by memorizing the answers to already known questions. Put on performances and be graded on same. Then posture and spout (sayers that they are) and get all the footnotes, and bibliographies correct - which only means they are properly quoting or citing someone elses works and walla BRILLIANCE. Too bad we in truth can't bottle, package buy or sell common sense, or real brilliance. In this day and age, the package may look good and be revered as if it still means what it used to mean.

But, the reality is that it is an empty package devoid of anything that even remotely resembles real substance, character or intelligence. You can't buy, sell, trade or barter true wisdom. Only information, which more often than not is mis-used because of the lack of common sense, logic, or substance. Welcome to education 101 in America

Turns out that Eric Schoenberg, chief cheerleader for United for a Fair Economy, only made about $37,000 after he paid his expenses, local taxes and accounted for charitable contributions.

He originally claimed he had income of over $200,000.  

After telling the AP that he only paid one percent in...
