1) don't make any money
2) live and work on a reserve
3) tax evasion
4) tax minimization
Only one of those might afford you a significant disposible income and keep you out of an orange jumpsuit. I'll admit that being self employed isn't an option for every job or every person and our society wouldn't function if everyone did it. Top bracket on income tax is 43%. Capital gains are 25% and everything that you spend related to your investment is taken off the top. There are lots of very well to do people paying 43% tax on their top money out there but the percentage of your income that ends up becomes taxes or disposable income is very different between the two.
I'm well aware of the system and how it works, I have a business.
that wasn't my point at all, but there is a difference in perpetuating his image vs just shutting up about it. you say he's an attention whore, well you're his biggest pimp. my point was more along the lines of "people in glass houses shouldn't throw rocks". how was that impound of yours anyways? i feel you're an extreme danger to the public for riding at 40 over the limit and will make sure to drag your name through the mud, even when no one asks. see what i mean? it's ok for you to get an impound but how dare he speed more than you.
again going after character. big fucking deal. there are far worse assholes on the road than this guy, just the fact that he's still around says something about him knowing how to ride given his chosen speeds.
honestly ssblade , pass me your crack pipe , seems its pretty potent stuff
listen to me or i will eat you're bacon
And yes I already know what I'm doing, but instead of talking about the rate of tax I pay at least I pay it, and as such I'm a contributor to the economy. Anyone who had a job or is self employed does. Point is people like Randy don't contribute anything but they think it's a big joke when they spend 2 months in the hospital without having to spend a dime being there.
As I said, Randy brought this on himself, it's not like he was trying to hide the fact. He's proud of his shenanigans. Just because he can operate a motorcycle that doesn't mean we shouldn't discuss it, this is a forum.
When Britney Spears showed everyone her poontang in public and everyone talked about it, do you think she was surprised? I know Randy better than her because I've met him...people are going to talk about what's in the news, I'm not sure why this is a big surprise.
it'll cost you 200k. seriously though, what's your issue? i'll just wait til some other idiot from this site gets an impound and go all heroic and high and mighty like frosty here is doing to that guy. i think it's fucking lame to keep harping and whining about some asshole that speeds. if you guys wish to keep talking about him, well, you're just playing into his game.
most shady people i know pay more tax than high earners. it may not be income tax but there's still tax on consumption. you think these guys don't pay tax on their homes, boats, cars, trucks, bikes, etc....? they probably pay more in tax on those items than what you got skimmed off your t4.
whatever, peewee got what he wanted out of this. i'm just simply stating that slagging a guy for speeding on a sportbike site is asinine. we've all sped, maybe not as reckless or in such a shitty spot as him, but don't kid yourself. i also know how out of whack a stock speedo is on a jap sportbike and that, combined with a simple sprocket change, can really make or break your youtube status. i think deep down i'm just trying to prevent my good friend frosty from gossiping too much about some drug dealing thug on the interwebz. the guy may one day read this shit and come looking for him, stranger things have happened.

I think what I'm trying to get at is Randy is welcome to go about his business, but we were all affected at the time because the news painted the picture that he was a member of Island Riders. I was an admin of the site at the time, and we certainly didn't want him to be publicly associated with our group.
