    Right. Money doesn't live, and neither do corps.

    Thanks for proving that it's not life or money that is taxed; it's financial transactions

    In fact when I first invited him to this tennis tournament (where we have a top box), I told my late father that this fellow was going to meet us at the tournament. so we are walking past the reserved parking with all the mercedes, bmws, and cadillacs and there is this POS beat up toyota truck. My father noted a guy like that must really love tennis and obviously wasn't there to be seen (like more than a few yuppies are). Yeah it was my friend the cook's POS truck

    Nope, you're wrong. As a legal entity, a corporation can own goods and resources completely outside of it's owners. This is why the corporation can be sued and the owners private property not seized if the suit against the corporation is successful but the corp doesn't have the assets to cover the judgment.
    tell me why the govenment NEEDS more money
    Because we as a country have massive debt. I like most reasonable people realize we need both cuts and revenue to get America back to prominence.
    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.

    Is that why you have no idea what you're talking about? Because you haven't been zigging and zagging?

    You better get on that!
