    What does this mean? To use money as protected free speech? Negative earnings mean the company did not earn revenue on their expenses. There was no income- so where do you see that it would be appropriate for them to be taxed? The system does not tax people or corporations for losing or not earning money. That's nonsensical.

    Since when are people taxed for being people.........ok, BOCare is going to do that but it is going to ruled unconstitutional. People are taxed on earnings and gains. If a person has neither he not only doesn't pay any taxes, he probably receives a check from Uncle Sam. Corporations should be taxed on earnings, if they have none they don't have a tax liability.

The State should have confiscated his parents estate to prevent their children from living such an outlandish lifestyle. The State could have used that money more wisely by pumping it into economic blackholes like Solyndra or Fast & Furious programs. Brilliant idea dude.
    The actual point seems to have gone miles over your head. I do not make it a practice to single out folks and call them names like "parasites". My post was to point out to those who most often do that if one defines the term "parasite" as one who lives off the earnings of others and did not work for it themselves, then their sacred cow of the wealthy who inherit from Mumsy and Daddykins are among the parasite crowd.

    That was my point. Obviously, if a company didn't make a profit, you can't tax that profit.

    My only point is, people are saying that we shouldn't tax a corporations profits, etc...and my point is, so long as they are considered "people", with freedom speech, etc, like me, then their profits should be taxed, just like mine.

    So the daughter of the farmer that received a share of the farm is a parasite if she doesn't work on the farm but lives on the farm's earnings. Got it. You should try to get under control your class envy, it will eat you alive.

    It just seems that some people think we need to identify all the wealthy people, figure out how they got that way, and decide at that point whether they should be allowed to keep their money or not.

    They do.

    Should small businesses qualify for the earned income credit?
