      is not income tax, period.  Not by any metric anyone has ever used anywhere unless they're pulling it out of their ass.  If he is actually including property taxes, then let him say so, and we can have a nice little discussion about total percentage taxation (including property tax, sales tax, gas taxes, sin taxes, etc etc) on normal people vs what Phil Mickelson has to pay.  And don't forget to include the low taxes on his investments.  Heck, let's throw in the tax loopholes he qualifies for versus the average Joe, too, why not?  Doubt it would do anything to make him look like LESS of a whiny jerk.  More so, maybe.
