    Joe The Plumber for President

    I figure at least he has a real job and can keep track of his lies.

    • Yesh - Joe hate taxes, so he does not pay them - IRS!!! See Below.
      But the emergence of Joe has allowed the state of Ohio to locate the man it says owes nearly $1,200 in back taxes. His motives for confronting Sen. Barack Obama at a campaign stop in his neighborhood earlier this week are the subject of intense Internet speculation. The city of Toledo is preparing a letter to his employer seeking to determine whether he is violating city codes, and the plumbers union is on his tail.

      "Joe the Plumber really isn't a plumber," said Thomas Joseph, business manager of Local 50 of the United Association of Plumbers, Steamfitters and Service Mechanics, whose national membership has endorsed Obama.
      Wurzelbacher also acknowledged to reporters that he did not have a plumber's license but said he did not need one to do residential work with the two-man Newell Heating and Plumbing Co., which does have a license.

    • Believe nothing you hear or see from either side of the isle in the world of politics.

      Apparently, Joe decided to give himself a personal tax break. Owes the state back taxes and doesn't have a plumbers license in the state of Ohio.

      I find this extremely comical. National level presidential campaigns with more or less unlimted resources fail to check out the facts prior to spinning a story.

      Anyway, bought more BP this morning on the drop and saw it recovered nicely. Expect OPEC cut of up to 1 million barrels next week. That should put in a price bottom for now.
