Siblings: Triplets Will Be Triplets

Like any normal brothers and sisters, the triplets have their little games, competitions, etc. Sometimes I wonder what their aim is. Is it to make themselves look better than the other two?  Is it striving to get attention?  I'm not always sure.  But it reminds me of Mr. Warren Buffett who has been saying that we should stop coddling the super rich and raise their tax rates.

From an editorial in The New York Post:

“Obvious question: If Buffett really thinks he and his 'mega-rich friends' should pay higher taxes, why doesn’t his firm fork over what it already owes under current rates?”

It seems that for years Buffet's own company has fought with the IRS about taxes which may total a billion dollars...yes, you read that right.

I could never guess the reason for his squabbling with the IRS. If he thinks he doesn't pay enough, then HE SHOULD PAY WHAT HE ALREADY OWES.  Is he just trying to get attention?  If so, he surely did get that.  Is he trying to look better than all the other mega  rich?  If so, I think he just failed.
