    Is that a rural farm reference? Do you raise chickens that turn into hogs? Sorry, but I am a humble city boy who never heard of such wizardry.

    It is called INCOME as in a new owner gets the money for themselves........ much like getting a paycheck or salary. As to why the government needs it, you just wrote a mean comment to me earlier claiming that you do not need to be educated to matters of government. Now you show basic ignorance of the need of government for funds. What gives? Please make up your mind about what you need to be informed about.

    that is so wrong. its not the same as income that is derived for an exchange of value

    and you are the one that thinks the government needs more and more and Haymarket I doubt there is any government issue that you can demonstrate I am ignorant of compared to you or most of the posters on this board

    The government does not need more money. The government is far too big, far too bloated and far too wasteful of our wealth

    Perhaps you could quote the law for us about this necessary element of exchange of value? Just so we know this is not something you pulled out of ..... thin air let us say.

    perhaps you can justify why this government needs more money

    You dont help a credit card junkie by loaning them more money. Government must stop spending first. That isnt even close to occurring.

    If you want the credit card junkie to vote for you and you can make someone else pay the bills, its a win=win for the junkie and his enabler

    that is what we have now

    We have a $15 TRILLION debt. If you think we can get it under control without raising more revenue you have your head burried somewhere.
