    your weak argument is just that.

    there is no two transactions for value. You are just upset that others have investment income. There is no way to rationally justify the same government taking two cuts of the same pile of money. tell us why you support such actions and don't lie

    uh. yes. they do. that's sort of kind of the definition of share holder.

    Any person, company or other institution that owns at least one share of a company’s stock. Shareholders are a company's owners. They have the potential to profit if the company does well, but that comes with the potential to lose if the company does poorly. A shareholder may also be referred to as a "stockholder".

    why do people who don't understand corporations spend so much time whining about them? its amazing-its almost as bad as the gun threads where the less people know about the subject the more they want to regulate the guns

    Good and the executive decisions the average shareholder makes are? And the liability of the average shareholder is?

    It is double taxation, at the nominal rate of 50%. Now, we may say that we want double taxation, or that we want to discourage the dispersal of dividends (in favor, for example, of reinvestment), or that we think it is a good policy for whatever set of reasons, but it is our policy.
