  1. i see no reason to exempt these young people from the income tax. if anyone should be exempt, it is the young men and women in our armed forces serving in harms way.

    the olympians have been pampered and trained at someone else’s expense, for the most part. they deserve no special consideration.

  2. Yes please. More tax breaks for Kobe and LeBron. That is precisely the one thing that will fix our country and put it back on track.
