You ask: Does anyone seriously believe that she did ANY of this deliberately?Not sure what he means by that last line. But the rest? Phew, man can string together an argument.
My best guess is that she didn't sit down and plan to screw the state of Missouri and the Federal government out of her fair share of taxes. That said, she probably didn't even bother to think that not paying taxes was screwing taxpayers and the state; she is, after all not a taxpayer, but a tax imposer. Doing this sort of thing just comes naturally to rulers of her ilk. The taxpayers are her enemies and her sheep, to be shorn at her whim, to pay for her everyday life. And if reality ever hits her, she has her flunkies to take the blame, and her benighted enablers, like you for example, to give her cover by claiming that everyone does it. Everyone; like Rangel, Waters, Geithner, Daschle, Kerry, Dellums, Zoe Baird, Kimba Wood. You know. Everybody.
Sooner or later, if enough democrats screw the state out of their fair share of taxes, then we get to claim that everybody does it. Just like everybody gets serviced in the White House, everybody sells US ports to China, everybody hires illegal aliens from China for sub-Cabinet positions, everybody sells seats on Air Force One, coffees with the Pres., sleepovers in the Lincoln Bedroom, and on and on.
"Everybody." That's Arabic for Democrats.
