Politics in Yachting: John Kerry Causes a Row Aug 10

Massachusetts Senator John Kerry’s love of taxation is fairly robust, even for a Democrat.  He has often expounded upon the virtues of allowing the government to take a larger bite of every private citizen’s paycheck in order to stimulate the economy of our great nation (since individuals cannot be trusted to invest in America or make spending decisions that are in step with government agendas).  And while he has diligently upheld taxation in his own state, he has recently come under attack for dodging the very taxes he supports again and again, in particular, one that centers on yacht ownership.

That’s right: Senator John Kerry owns a yacht.  “Isabel” is a 76-foot pleasure craft that apparently set Kerry back a whopping $7 million dollars.  Somehow it just doesn’t seem fair that public servants can afford such luxury, but it appears that marrying up and financing a campaign with the assets of a big-brand heiress can get just about anyone elected.  In any case, people are allowed to live as they please, hopefully within their means, and Kerry clearly has the means to purchase a yacht, so more power to him.  And yet, there is a catch.
