Tim Geithner, Horrible Tax Cheapskate

News

Oh everybody was soooo excited that this New York guy, Tim "Timothy" Geithner, had deigned to be Barack Obama's treasury secretary. But now it comes out that for several years he paid state and federal income taxes but no payroll taxes! Well, everybody knows that payroll taxes are just forpoor people anyway. They're not even "real" taxes.


Here is the deal: back in the early part of this decade, Geithner worked for the International Monetary Fund. As an international organization, they don't withold Social Security and Medicare taxes from their American employees' payrolls. Instead, they pay those employees an extra 15% with the understanding that the money will go to self-employment tax and not to, whatever, Cristal and hookers.

This dummy Geithner did not pay his self-employment tax for four years because apparently his accountant said he didn't have to. (?!?)

So then when he got audited in 2006, he wound up having to pay back taxes for 2003 and 2004, which he paid. But a three-year statute of limitations prevented the IRS from auditing him for the years 2001 and 2002, which he also owed back taxes on. So what did he do, this nationally prominent government money guy who probably had some inkling that he might some day might want to be even more nationally prominent in the world of finance? He said, "Enh, all right, I'll just keep the change."

Not until he was being vetted by the Obama transition team did he finally decide to produce the remaining $26,000. This is why he is a lamer.

Barack Obama delivered his first major address of his post-presidency Tuesday at an event in Johannesburg, South Africa, honoring the 100th anniversary of Nelson Mandela's birth. It was -- as you'd expect for the occasion -- appropriately dignified and thoughtful. It was also every bit as inspiring as you might expect from the first black American president speaking in memory of the first black president of a nation that for most of its modern history was synonymous with apartheid. Let's take some time to bask in what an actual world leader sounds like, shall we?

Guess what Vladimir Putin's getting for Christmas! He's been dropping hints, and you know the Big Orange Baboon can't say no to him for some unknown reason. Gonna be so cute when little Vladdy stumbles down the stairs in his PJs, brushes the sleep from his eyes, and finds MONTENEGRO all wrapped up with a big bow under the Christmas tree. Adorbz!

Oh, but we are to kid! Just a little levity as President Treasonweasel slams a sledgehammer into the international framework that kept us out of another world war for the past 70 years. So why are we suddenly talking about a tinyass country whose chief export appears to be consonants? (Sorry, Montenegro. But your Predsjednik Crne Gore is Milo Đukanović, and your capital city is Cetinje, which is just cheating at Scrabble.)

Well! Donald Trump just got out of a two-hour, closed-door meeting with Vladimir Putin, whose government tried to stage a coup in 2016 to assassinate Đukanović and stop Montenegro's accession to the European Union. Which might not be a coincidence!
