    That's how I'd like it to be. So, I'm going to choose to make my money by being born to a billionaire. It is my choice, after all, how I make my money.

    parasites cost me money. rich heirs do not. I don't praise heirs but they don't cost me

    It's hardly splitting hairs. This country hasn't been anything like a pure free market since the 1920s. How did that work out?

    Patriotic Millionaires For Fiscal Strength
    They are laughing their butts off. "Yeah, Obama is going to raise taxes on income and we are going to say how great that is, even though most of our money is made through capital gains that we will make sure aren't touched".

    So basically this new tax on the income of those making over $1 mill won't even touch Buffett as his income is reported $100,000. All of his money is made through capital gains. When I see Obama addressing this, I'll take him seriously. Until then, he's a fraud.

    Heirs are parasites, of course, and they cost us all money by hoarding unearned wealth.

    you seem to forget that the right is with the person who owned and earned the money. You have no right to an inheritance but once it is bequeathed others have no right to whine about what an earner chose to give you

    that is just pathetic and it oozes envy. you appear to be mad that you didn't have industrious or productive parents. You have no right to the wealth no matter how much you try to justify it. You didn't earn it, so quit whining

If you are better at something compared to someone else, you should earn more money than that person. If you work harder than someone else, all else equal, you should also make more money. Yet, somehow, this makes me a communist? (It is true, I don't think wealth or success should be a birthright. If that makes me a communist, a communist I am.)
    So what you are saying then is that if your rich mother dies, that the rest of the world should get everything that she worked for? You are sitting on the fence arguing one point from one side and another point from the other side. There are people that work hard, and there are people that inherit from people that work hard. If I want to give what I earn to my children that is my right and it is not your right to make things difficult for them simply because you are jealous.
