    It wasn't just a hypothetical. I cited a well-known example (again, Enron)
    Without knowing the specifics of your so called facts, I’ll just assume a company known to engage in fraud might of had other avenues of profitability motivating them.

    I did a fine job of explaining the difference; so fine that you've been forced to change you claim two times now

    Your posts are hardly indicative of an adult level of discourse and your main goal is to be a contrarian

    Their only consistency is wanting OTHER people to pay MORE taxes

    some of them advocate that because they are fans of big government and believe the government is more capable of spending the money than those who earn it

    others are just economic vandals who are upset that others do better than they do and they want the government to avenge their feelings of envy

    Another dishonest post from TD. I have said that I'm willing to have my tax rates increased

    The only consistency is TD's position is that he doesn't want HIS taxes raised.

    He's willing to have taxes increased on people who make less them him. He's willing to have taxes increased on people who make more than him.

    Why am I not surprised you'd be insulting?

    Double taxation does not exist in America. Sorry, it doesn't. The concept is based on a foolish idea that a corporation and it's owners are one. They are not. The other foolish belief is money somehow has a memory. It doesn't. All bets are off when it changes hands. If someone gives you a million dollars, a mill they paid taxes on, the money isn't doubled taxed and neither are you. That entire frame of thinking is ridiculous. Money isn't an entity with rights and legal status beyond the entities controlling it. Money isn't taxed outside of the entity.

    I see how Conservative fall into the worship of money...
    A man without fear is a fool, a man that succumbs to his fear is a coward and a brave man acknowledges fear yet presses on.

I know we do tax that, but the money hasn't done anything but move between names. It didn't buy anything or generate anything. It was just moved.

    What if it was 20 dollars?
