Diabetes Set Him Up

If you haven't already heard, Marion Barry hasn't been paying his taxes. Well, he didn't pay them from 1999-2004, and then stopped paying them again in 2007. This violates his probation, and prosecutors would like to send him to jail. However, Barry has an excuse. He has diabetes. He has dialysis treatments three times a week, and you know, that makes it so he can't file his taxes. Doesn't impact him collecting his $92,500 salary as a DC Councilmember, but hey taxes are complicated.

Barry truly is the gift that keeps on giving. I'm not even going to pretend to be outraged at this, because really now, what else would we expect? Of course he has diabetes, and that makes it so he can't even, I don't know, buy a copy of TurboTax. Obviously! And it gets better, he's even got a donor lined up, and will be receiving a kidney transplant.

According to WUSA:
Barry is hoping a federal judge will consider his medical condition and not send him to jail for probation violation. He says he'll file his 2007 and 2008 returns in a day or so.

"In a day or so!" Hey, don't rush. You might hurt yourself. 2008 isn't due until April.

You know what I have to say about all of this? (And I think you all will agree):

Wilford Brimley pays his motherfucking taxes. And he's got twice the diabetes Marion Barry ever will.


  1. Who is Dave and what has he done to all the other delightful personalities that use to post here?

  2. 2 more days until FRIDAY the 13th you motherfuckers!

  3. more like a bloodsugar-less coup.
    Who's giving up their kidney? One of the Nats?

  4. If African Americans were an international corporation, they would terminate Marion Barry.

    Then, of course, they'd issue a statement downplaying the incident, saying that African Americans and Marion Barry were parting ways to pursue different avenues.

    "While we respect Mr. Barry's decision to continue smoking crack, womanizing and building on an extensive record of arrest, we feel that, as African Americans, we must pursue a different strategy at this time.

    We wish Mr. Barry the best of luck in his endeavors."

  5. I was going to skip the gym tonight but then you reminded me about Wilford Brimley.

  6. And, not for nothing, Die-beaties is an absolute public health epidemic in America. Shame on him.

  7. MS-13 4 LIFE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  8. Outrage at Barry is so nouveau D.C. After a few years you learn to ignore him.

    2 Quick questions.
