    Yes, I know that progressives continue to find new ways to fund their utopia, and the utopia keeps getting further and further away with each foolish intervention.

    I actually don't have a problem taxing capital gains, but we can do it one time and set the rate as it needs. I have a major problem taxing labor though.

    what are you blabbering about. This thread isn't about a person being double taxed, so it is your nonsense that doesn't belong in this thread.

    Just for my edification can you define specifically ‘loophole’ and ‘deduction’ as it regards to taxation.

    Thanks for being so obtuse
    You're welcome...

    Then why did you claim that people who supported raising taxes on the rich were being selfish?

    Thank you for that.

    OK, entitled. So there is a law that says companies that I am a shareholder in do not HAVE to pay me dividends? Really? Again, quote said law.

    Oh, stop it.

    My salary is deductible to the company and taxed to me.
    A gift is taxed to the giver and tax-exempt to the receiver.
    Alimony is deductible by the giver and taxed at the receiving end.
    Child support is tax-exempt to the receiver....taxed to the giver.
    Estate tax is paid by the estate and tax-exempt to the beneficiary.

    Give me another example of the same exact pile of money taxed and then taxed again.
    The devil whispered in my ear, "You cannot withstand the storm." I whispered back, "I am ​the storm."

    No, the entire thread isn't about the myth of double taxation, but several posters have claimed that their money is being double-taxed, no matter how many times you make the dishonest claim that they haven't

    Okay, so again, dividends are taxed at the corporate and individual level. So what? Aren't we constantly told by conervatives that corporate taxes are simply passed on? That corporations don't really pay taxes?

    Actually go back and read Hay's comment. I merely countered his hyperbolic comment with one just as equal.
