On a similar vein, I asked if Dave Zenner had quit AP. The answer was that "he is not with us anymore, but we may see him in the summer." I do not know what that means. Maybe somebody can clarify.

Ocean Knight and Imperia as stated before are better than Frosted.  McLaughlin has Jess's Dream but he might be running out of time for a serious Kentucky Derby run unless he gets in the gate soon. 

Ocean Knight was parked the whole way and won like a special colt.

Hey I just had a great idea for a new kind of flat tax - the "everyone pays exactly the same as his neighbor" flat tax plan. Why should Mitt Romney have to pay even 1 cent more than Vic? It just isn't fair.

So, keeping current government revenues from what used to be income taxes level, divided by 240,000,000 adult Americans, each adult would have to pay in about $6800 per year. Great for a single guy like me, maybe not so good for a big house, but tough shit, fair is fair. What is the government giving me it isn't giving Joe Average and his wife and his unemployed bum son and the daughter in college and the live-in mother-in-law? Nothing, that's what. I pay my $6800 share for government services for one adult, and they pay their $40,800 share for six adults. It's only fair.

You're retired and have no income? Tough crap, pay your $6800. Only make $18k a year at McDonald's or Walmart? Tough, pay up. Granny in a rest home? Cough it up. behind bars like 2 million other Americans? Pay up buddy.

If there's no reason for a guy like Vic to pay more than someone else, there's also no reason for Mitt Romney to pay more.

You're welcome. Tax problems solved.

Situation grows curiouser and curiouser by the day. Those who know will know what happened this week. Out of respect for the principal - and disrespect for the trolls - won't be revealed here. But anyone following the first wave of Bruce Rauner hi-jinks saw it as did folks who follow news out of CDI.

Mr. D has done a wonderful job of preserving and enhancing an attractive racing product as best he can for close to 30 years. He has a vision of how racing in Illinois can be rebuilt. Whatever his age, and God hope that his health situation is as positive as possible, few would argue that his visions and his messages are not being properly conveyed to those positioned to move the more communally beneficial portions of that agenda forward.

If he still had a Scott Mordell or a Steve Sexton or a Ken Dunn in house, at hand, to assist him in quests for both clarity and impact that would be one thing. Unfortunately, he doesn't.

Hence, as he continues to fight his good fight, he must return to being his own messenger, since he is the most effective messenger available in-house at Arlington right now. Mr. D clearly remains passionate and committed to presenting only the best for the higher-ground interests of racing and breeding in Illinois. His reemergence as the unquestioned face, voice and master of Arlington International would be more than mildly analagous to the autumnal George Halas's decision to supercede all internal hierarchy in 1982 and hire Mike Ditka as head coach.

Halas's unfettered fire and drive resulted in the only NFL championship by the Chicago Bears in the last 51 seasons. In the opinions of some who still command respect around the game of international Thoroughbred horse racing, Mr. Duchossois must now step around the scholarshipping posuers and drive his wagon train to successful contemporary vistas.

With the new pieces moving into place, what becomes a proper farewell to Mr. D?

The burden is on the people in the middle

No, it isn't. The top 10% of earners pay 71% of the income tax. That's people up around $120k and above ADJUSTED GROSS. If you're not reporting an adjusted gross in that range and contributing to that 71%, but instead are below that and only contributing to the remaining 29% like average Joe and his wife in your example above, then by your measure you're nothing but a f***ing leech.

You either make a shitload of money, or live in Section 8 and open the mailbox once a month for your "salary." I'm guessing the latter. The welfare state doesn't bother you perhaps because you are a part of it?

I don't know anything about Section 8 or the welfare state, but you sure seem to have an intimate familiarity with it.

We all get screwed twice by these leeches. They contribute nothing. They pay sales tax on money they were given in the first place.
They take out of a system. Since you pay nothing in, how do you get to take it out?

I hate to tell you this, but a lot of those people you love to hate who pay zero income tax are not welfare leeches. They're people who earn crappy incomes, retirees, disabled vets, large families with many deductions, and etc. While 43% aren't paying income tax, all but 14% are paying various payroll taxes, meaning they are working. And of the ones not paying even payroll taxes, most are retirees.

See: http://www.forbes.com/sites/beltway/2013/09/12/most-americans-do-indeed-pay-federal-taxes-including-the-poor/

You know who's the real leeches in my opinion? The clowns who live close to the ocean and force the rest of us to buy them new houses when they get blown away by hurricanes. The ones who insist on Federally subsidized flood insurance so they can live in a flood plain and have Uncle Sugar pick up the tab for any floods. Farmers paid to grow nothing. So on and so forth. All good solid middle class leeches.

This all may be too abstract for you, so you don't need to respond.

Uninformed, at any rate.
