    Well, my point still stands. If taxable income is clearly defined by the rule of law, be a doll and post it, then explain it, lol. There's about....300,000,000 inquiring minds I'm sure that would LOVE to have your understanding of the subject.
    If you do not understand the very basis of taxation and its function within developed society, perhaps this is not the discussion for you
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    Do you understand the basis of taxation to support state sponsored criminality?

    Maybe not with someone as obstinately obtuse as you, but I'll wager the folks that come behind and read what the two of us have left will draw the same conclusion about you that I have. You're not bringing anything to the table other than "It's the law, so it's ok."

    Then start a thread about it. Your impending desire to go off on a tangent exposes how desperate you really are.

    Taxes are not theft. What happened with GM was theft.

    It's my thread. There is no line betwen redistribution of wealth and criminality.

    You said legally. There is no law without taxes.

    Even though the OWS movement is NOT about wealth redistribution, many of the people involved in the movement are all for it, and as such, it's ironic that THEIR wealth is being redistributed. Everything that has followed has just become a quagmire, lol. QUICKLY, too, I might add.

    No, because it is pointless to try to have a discussion with someone whose relies on fallacious arguments. You are excusing theft because the particular party described in the OP has a different view, and because of this difference their rights deserve to be infringed upon.

    Talk about nonsense.

    I cannot help it if that is the only debate tactic you are capable of deploying. Your premise fails to support your conclusion.
