He's got my vote. Many's the morning I've woken up feeling the way he looks in that picture. If he gets elected we can put him on the $100 bill - and then pre-treat it with coke residue.
I spent 90% of the money I made on women, booze, and drugs. The other 10% I just pissed away.

Fox News
Millionaire anti-virus software tycoon John McAfee unleashed a barrage of criticism of the IRS in a series of tweets Thursday and bragged that he has not filed a tax return in eight years.

"I have not filed a tax return for 8 years," McAfee wrote before calling taxes illegal and complaining about government services. He noted that he lives off the money made from McAfee Inc. - the company he founded and resigned from in 1994 - and called himself a "prime target" for the IRS before writing "Here I am."

In another tweet, McAfee likened the tax agency to the Nazi SS and said its beginnings are rooted as an intimidation arm of the government during Prohibition. He cited the Civil War period as an example to abolish the income tax: "prior to the civil war there was no income tax, yet we managed. Stay tuned for the truth."

How is this news worthy? Thanks, Fox News, for drawing attention to a batshit crazy person because you like what he's saying at this particular moment in time. Next we'll find out he doesn't think highly of the new chili cheese dog at his local eatery.

He's nuts. Is anyone left who doesn't know this?

It's too bad the IRS no longer has the funding or staff to go after big-time scofflaws. They've been cut so far that they can only afford small, easy audits anymore.
