‘Joe the Plumber’ Owes Back Taxes, Doesn’t Have Plumbing License

Plumber Joe Wurzelbacher speaks to the media, October 16, 2008, outside of his home in Holland, Ohio. Wurzelbacher was referred to frequently by presidential candidates Republican U.S. Sen. John McCain (R-AZ ) and Democrat U.S. Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL) during last night’s third debate as “Joe the Plummer”. (Photo by J.D. Pooley/Getty Images North America)

The star of last night’s Presidential debate wasn’t either of the candidates. It was a plumber named Joe.

With the phrase “Joe the Plumber” being tossed around last night, the public (and the media) were eager to learn more about the man behind the moniker. Enter Joe Wurzelbacher.

Joe Wurzelbacher briefly made the news recently when Fox News ran a tape of him approaching Senator Barack Obama at a campaign rally in Toledo, Ohio. Wurzelbacher explained to Obama that his tax policies would put him in a bind if he were to buy into his employer’s plumbing business, which would make an estimated $280 thousand/year.

Joe became a repeated example in last night’s presidential debate and by morning, reporters were camping out on his doorstep to catch him as he left the house in the morning.

Well maybe Joe would have been happier staying anonymous instead of becoming an example and having nosy reporters go rooting around in his paper trail.

It turns out Joe Wurzelbacher really doesn’t like taxes… like to the point where he won’t pay them.

From Bloomberg.com:

According to records on file with the Lucas County Court of Common Pleas, the state filed a tax lien against Samuel J. Wurzelbacher for $1,182.98 on Jan. 26, 2007, that is still active.

So Wurzelbacher has an active lien against his house for back income taxes. And by the way he’s no where near close to making the kind of money that would put him in Obama’s $250k and up tax bracket. And here’s the real kicker.

He’s not a licensed plumber.

That’s right. Joe the Plumber is not a licensed plumber (More from the Washington Post). To be fair, Wurzelbacher doesn’t have to be licensed to work for a plumbing company, but it just sort of tastes like the icing on the cake to me.

At this point I’m guessing Wurzelbacher wishes he had just kept quiet and never spoken up to Obama or anyone else ever about the subject of politics. He seems like a likeable enough guy. It’s just awkward to see a completely normal “Joe” have his laundry tossed by the press.

The Tony Rock Project

OMFG this show is hilarious.  This is my first time watching, although it’s been on the air for a couple of weeks.  It’s sort of a Chapelle Show type, but not really.  I haven’t seen any skits like The Chapelle Show, but they (Tony and his group of comics) go out on the street and interact with the public…and you never know what they’re gonna say.

I give two thumbs WAY up to this fresh take on a old classic.  Tony Rock is hilarious and I’m glad to see him out doing something after All of Us.  (Which was a great show by the way.)  Anywho, support the man!  The show is super funny, I PROMISE!  My only problem with the show is that it’s only 30 minutes.

Look it up in your local listings for the channel.  But it comes on Wednesdays at 8pm.

Aliens Will Land Here Today 10/14/2008

This stuff always interests me and this article caught my attention yesterday.

Not sure about this prediction but the bit at the end where they say they have the most conclusive proof ever that show aliens is certainly interesting or could just be a publicity stunt.

Anyways, what you guys think about this article and aliens in general?

——————————————————————————————–
——————————————————————————————–

PROOF is out there, say experts…

Aliens are set to land on Earth tomorrow to prove to humans that there really is life out there.

Extra-terrestrials will make a grand entrance to our planet by flying across our skies in a space craft that will be visible for three days, experts said.

The internet was buzzing with claims that the strange alien aircraft could even land after it appears over the American desert.

So many people reckon the rumour is true, bookies have stopped taking bets on the UFO prediction after an unprecedented rush.

William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams said: “This is the first time that an internet phenomenon has affected our business.”

American psychic Blossom Goodchild sparked the frenzy after claiming aliens informed her of their plans.

Bookies are set to lose millions of pounds if E.T.’s pals do approach our planet. Mr Adams added: “We now have seven-figure liabilities if the ship does appear and we have decided to duck any more big bets until October 14 has passed, hopefully without incident.”

Blossom claimed that aliens have announced that one of their craft will appear in our skies tomorrow as a way of proving to us the existence of other life forms in the universe.

She said they “come in love to help us and our planet move to a new higher vibration of love”.

And one UFO blogger wrote: “Stockpile some foods, water and first aid supplies. Be ready to welcome our visitors.

“Be kind to your neighbours who may not understand.

“Be welcoming and greet the visitors with love. What an exciting time.”

The news comes as a leading European UFO expert claims he is about to reveal the most significant alien proof ever recorded, filmed over the last six months in Turkey.

Haktan Akdogan, from the Sirius UFO Space Science Research Center, said: “The images captured are expected to have a tremendous impact throughout the world and could be listed as the most important UFO and extra-terrestrial images ever filmed in all the world.”

Akdogan will reveal the footage at the UFO Data Magazine Annual Conference at the end of the month. For details ufodata.co.uk

Two weeks after AIG received an $85 billion gov’t loan, execs for its subsidiary party in style at 5-star resort

Less than two weeks after Uncle Sam gave American International Group (AIG) an $85 billion loan – staving off financial collapse – execs from one of its insurance subsidiaries, AIG American General, gathered for a conference at the uber-swank St. Regis Monarch Beach Resort, billed as “California’s only Mobil Travel Guide Five-Star Resort,” where ocean-view rooms start at $565 a night and “world class luxury” is the rule.

On Friday, before the presidential debate got under way, caterers for the St. Regis were setting up dozens of tables on the grounds of Mission San Juan Capistrano for AIG American General’s sumptuous off-site dinner. Tables were draped with soft Tuscan-gold tablecloths that cascaded to the grass; elegant fresh flower centerpiece graced each table; and what appeared to be fine crystal stemware, at least from a distance, glistened in the fading light.

Workers set up a lengthy bar stocked with bottles of liquor. A half-dozen tall space heaters stood sentinel in case the evening turned cool. There was a large center stage with lighting and a sound system, and once the sun went down, the whole scene took on a magical patina as tiny white lights twinkled in the trees.

The Watchdog – and the Outraged Taxpayer who alerted us to the situation – understand that corporate events such as these are planned many months in advance. I mean, really. Who could have known in the spring that there’d be Financial Armageddon in the fall?

But still. “The inappropriateness and the excessiveness just blew us away,” said the Outraged Taxpayer, who went to the Mission Friday to pray in the chapel. “It’s outrageous. In very poor taste. Over the top.”

MOM ACCUSED OF PERFORMING ORAL SEX ON HER TODDLER SON … TAKING PICS … AND SENDING THEM TO FAMILY AND FRIENDS!

DENVER — (AP) A 30-year-old Denver mother has been charged with sexually abusing her 2-year-old son, according Denver District Attorney Mitch Morrissey.

Alicia Lee is free on a $50,000 bond after she was charged with sexual assault on a child, sexual assault on a child by a person in a position of trust, and aggravated incest, all felonies, Morrissey said. According to the charges, Lee performed oral sex on her son and took photographs, sending them through e-mail to a friend who forwarded them to the 2-year-old boy’s father. The father then called police.

According to a copy of the e-mail reported by the Rocky Mountain News, the mom told her friend in April that she thought about the sex act while changing the boy’s diapers. The next day, she sent a photo of herself performing the act to a friend and said the boy giggled when she performed it.” The sending of possible child pornography material via e-mail is being referred to federal authorities for review,” a news release stated. Lee is scheduled to appear in Denver County Court on Sept. 29, to be formally advised of the charges against her.
