Because Tramps Like Us Baby We Were Born to Dodge Taxes

Two con men in action!

Semi-talented, billionaire con man Bruce Springsteen admitted today that for years he has been cheating on his taxes and that he has a perfectly logical explanation:  “I’m a Democrat and can get away with it.”

I sat down with the semi-talented, semi-differentially abled star to address his stunning admission.

MI: Good afternoon Bruce.

BS: Would you like my autograph?

MI: No.

BS: Are you sure?  Are you absolutely sure? I’m Springsteen dammit

MI: Please take the hood off.

BS: But I’m Springsteen dammit.

MI: Take the hood off.

MI: Somehow I liked you better with your hood on.  Now let’s talk about taxes. You own a 200-acre farm in New Jersey. But because technically you “farm” on that property since you grow potatoes your tax bill is reduced from $138,000 to $4,600 dollars. Because you say you are a farmer, you prevent New Jersey from redistributing your income.

BS: First let me say that I believe in the glory of socialism. What has been done in Venezuela should be a model to us all. I was down there recently reveling in it. 

MI: What did you see?

BS: Lots of empty shelves in supermarkets and a shortage of food. But that’s a feature of socialism. It prevents the proletariat from gaining too much weight. It shows how benevolent a socialist government can be.

MI: What else did you see.

BS: Rioting. Lots of rioting.

MI: Why were they rioting?

BS: They were expressing displeasure with the Trump administration.

MI: I see. Not because Venezuela’s economy is shattered and food is scarce? Is that another feature of socialism.

BS: No. Definitely not. Socialism is a compassionate system that allows us to make economic progress.

MI: And this is the economic system you want to bring to America? Why do you think it failed in Venezuela but would succeed in the United States?

BS: The wrong people were in charge in Venezuela. Brown peoples lack the necessary scientific expertise of white people to make socialism work. Can I put my hood back on?

MI: Yes, please.

MI: Now back to your tax situation. You say you believe in socialism but you have consistently tried to lower your taxes. If you believe in redistribution of income I would think you’d want to pay as much taxes as possible to bring about the socialist workers’ paradise.

BS: First off let me say that I believe in socialism. And I will do whatever it takes to help a Democratic president bring it about. From my 200 acre farm I will send out videos asking the middle class to pay more taxes. 

MI: But that brings me back to my original point. Why aren’t you paying more taxes?

BS: Because it wouldn’t be fair. As a Democrat I am naturally smarter and better equipped to bring about socialism. And the masses need someone to admire. They can’t admire me if I’m living a meager hand-to-mouth existence. You see, not paying taxes is compassionate. For me. Besides, there are plenty of rich Republicans who can pay more taxes. They deserve to be punished.

MI: Right. Well is there anything else you want to say to my readers before I wrap up this interview?

BS: I’m Springsteen dammit.

MI: Yes, we’ve already established that. Goodbye.

And so ended my interview with the disciple of socialism and paying one’s fair share of taxes. He’s Springsteen dammit and we aren’t.

    That first photo that looks like a NAMBLA recruitment AD will surely fatten their roles (pun intended).

    Don’t worry. It’s okay when a Democrat does it.
