    Pretty much everyone has this quality, yet your ideology demonizes something so commonplace.
    its a parasitic mindset that claims its greed to not want to be taxed far more than one's fair share but its "egalitarian and fair" to clamor for the wealth of others.

    What if it was 20 dollars?
    Money doesn't need to perform a function for it to be taxed. BTW, money can't perform anything. It's not alive.

    In that exchange, I believe gifts are taxed when they exceed a certain amount. It's his income, so it should be taxed. By the above example if you have a job, you shouldn't be taxed at all. Your employer was taxed already.

    1) I don't believe your claims

    2) and if you are so dim as to believe that the government needs your money more than you do you ought to be writing them checks for any money above and beyond what you need to live on

    corporations really don't live either. what they own is really owned by the shareholders. taxing a corporation taxes the owners. the more you take from the corporation, the more you take from the owners

    but you knew that

    tell me why the govenment NEEDS more money
