"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

Does the Obama White House have a regular media director? A non commie one, that is?

It would, if we had a "non-Commie" White House.

Drudge is of course correct, as any independent contractor or small business owner who pays estimated quarterly taxes might tell you.

Our virtual state-run media's responses to him were instructive, for at least two reasons.

First, they demonstrated how little our elites know about basic, practical business operations; as with their beloved President, one suspects none of them could run a lemonade stand.

Second, it demonstrated again just how close are the ties between the White House and its media publicists. When Obama's people say "jump", they do so nearly instantaneously and in unison, synchronized like a North Korean stadium crowd with color placards spelling out love notes to Dear Leader.

No matter how sad it is that our country has been infiltrated and taken over for ruin...

The one thing that is positive is the media are no longer respected. They are busted red-handed being the mouthpiece for radical progressive ideals. They are nothing but campaign headquarters. Obama has the media in his hip pocket and his approval numbers are still down. If the establishment republicans would just wake the frick up and see their approval numbers are in the tank because they have BECOME politically correct liberals 2.0.

As usual, you are right. I learned the hard way. When my husband was dx with Alzheimer's, I had to take over the books. What a mess! In hindsight, I should have hired someone to do it. We had a small bar, but the city, state, county, and fed taxes were a nightmare for me. At least I learned. Our congresscritters are too dumb to learn about the bill they passed.

Exactly. And they are now silent about it. They tried to use this to discredit Drudge. Yet, they themselves must read Drudge because they were on this like white on rice.

There is one problem with this:

The mandate does not apply to businesses. It applies to individuals.

The mandate would thus be filed with Drudge's individual tax return next year, not with his quarterly returns for the Drudge Report (a separate, non-human entity which isn't subject to the mandate).

If the Drudge Report were a standard "C" corporation, that would be true, as it would be taxed separately from its owners. But because he files as a Subchapter S corporation, Matt files a 1040, like you and me. The IRS rule applies equally to sole proprietorships, partners, S corporation shareholders, and/or self-employed individuals.

That was the whole point of Obamacare. The point wasn't to 'fix' healthcare, the point was to destroy healthcare. And they exempted themselves and their friends from it, and then killed the American healthcare industry. They don't care. They and their friends and family are covered for life.
 
This is the biggest 'screw you' American government has ever done to the American people. And American Liberals applaud and cheer their own demise. Idiots.

Which quarterly returns are you referring to?  quarterly estimated payments are not the same thing as employment or payroll tax returns.

Diligent Drudge Includes Obamacare Penalty in First Federal Tax Estimate; Media Hysteria Ensues, But AP Ignores
  By:  Tom Blumer  | March 25, 2014, 00:56 ET 

On Friday afternoon, Matt Drudge announced in a tweet that "(I) Just paid the Obamacare penalty for not 'getting covered'... I'M CALLING IT A LIBERTY TAX!"

A White House spokesman and the "progressive" press proceeded to thoroughly embarrass itself in its rebuttal attempts. How do I know? Because, four days later, despite the substantial and widely-known uproar, the Associated Press, aka the Administration's Press, doesn't even have a story on the topic; a search at 11:30 p.m. on Monday on Drudge's last name came up empty. If Drudge's detractors had the upper hand, AP would be all over it. ...

Well, John and Jane Q. Front Porch obviously have not problem with it.
