God Damn It, Phil - Don't Back Down
Pro golfer Phil Mickelson, in a sort-of rant on Sunday, asserted he may have to take "drastic action" because of recent tax decisions and votes in Washington and California... in other words, he was pissed off about the amount of taxes he will have to pay for 2013. Good, patriotic anger. He earns his money, why should the government get it?
Well, somebody got to him, so he did the obligatory apology. Who? Who knows... but I hate that, in the country where you're supposed to be able to do anything you can or want for a living, make as much money as you can, there are still assholes who think you shouldn't do that. Political assholeness...
Phil, take my advice, or this guy's: make all the money you can, live wherever you want, pay as little tax as possible. Nobody is forcing these people to pay you a dime. If the people don't like it, they don't have to watch you play golf or buy the gear you endorse. In other words - mine - fuck 'em...
UPDATE: Tiger understands and moved for tax reasons himself
UPDATE II: No, no, Phil... it really pisses me off that this country is so fucking jealous of anyone successful. Its been getting worse as liberalism keeps coming at us
UPDATE III: Did you really think that they would just shrug and pay more? Read the article titled "For millionaire athletes, states with highest tax rates may not make the cut" here... and its not just athletes, it will be any high-earner that CAN move
