When Romney was on Marriott's board -- actually chairman of the freaking Audit Committee, Marriott engaged in tax fraud schemes known generically as "Son of Boss". In other words, this was such a common tax scam (the official IRS term is "abusive tax shelter") that the IRS had a name for it. Here is a summary of what went on under Romney's watch.

Here's a primer on these "Son of boss" tax scams -- regarded by the IRS as an abusive tax shelter -- i.e. tax cheating. http://www.forbes.com/sites/peterjreilly/2012/08/08/son-of-boss-for-sons-of-you-know-if-marriott-did-it-did-romney/

It appears that Joseph Smith's theology in forming the Mormon religion includes the concept of "lying for the lord" where it is OK to lie as long as it is to the benefit of Mormons, which of course it would be in the case of Marriott and Romney.

It would not be hard for Romney to rationalize that his own personal tax cheating in general is OK because that generates a profit for him and he gives 10% of that to the church -- ergo lying for the lord.

I hear that Marriot, under willard's guidance has to pay
$220,000,000.00


I really don't like slamming a religion, but some people say that the Mormon dictated faith is frequently twisted to suit. Polygamy, required by Smith is now gone. How do you teach a child - live this book - except this & that?


check out Islam's taqqya


God created man.
man created a book
It is much simpler for the lemmings to read a book -
than it is to understand the heart of God.

Funny because after polygamy was declared "gone" they kept on doing it for a few decades and Romney's own ancestors fled to mexico where the government doesn't enforce stuff like laws about polygamy.

1890 Manifesto From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Mormonism and polygamy

Members of Joseph F. Smith's family, including his sons and daughters, as well as their spouses and children, circa 1900. [show]Background [show]Prominent practitioners [show]Related legislation [show]Related case law [show]Related articles v t e See also: Latter Day Saint polygamy in the late 19th century The "1890 Manifesto", sometimes simply called "The Manifesto", is a statement which officially disavowed the continuing practice of plural marriage in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church). Issued by church president Wilford Woodruff in September 1890, the Manifesto was a response to mounting anti-polygamy pressure from the United States Congress, which by 1890 had disincorporated the church, escheated its assets to the U.S. federal government, and imprisoned many prominent polygamist Mormons. The Manifesto was a dramatic turning point in the history of the LDS Church. It officially prohibited church members from entering into any marriage prohibited by the law of the land, and made it possible for Utah to become a U.S. state. Nevertheless, even after the Manifesto the church quietly continued to perform a small number of plural marriages in the United States, Mexico, and Canada, thus necessitating a Second Manifesto during U.S. congressional hearings in 1904. Though neither Manifesto dissolved existing plural marriages, plural marriage in the LDS Church gradually died by attrition during the early 1900s.[citation needed] The Manifesto was canonized in the LDS Church Standard Works as Official Declaration—1 and is considered by mainstream Mormons to have been prompted by divine revelation, which is disputed by Mormon fundamentalists.
