    So?

    And the top smokers pay almost all the tobacco tax.

    see my chart a few pages back.

    I think you should do something about your confusion over the meaning of death tax. I'm sure you don't want to look like a fool with your current one.

    Living = No taxes owned

    Stop Living, as in Death = Taxes owed.

    Yep, Death Tax.
    The tax was on her inheritance, not her fathers death.

    Anyhow, the vast majority of us would love to be in a position where we were able to write a check to the IRS for $1.5 million. I hope you and your wife aren't complaining about this "misfortune".

    Sorry to hear about his death though. I know that the death of a parent is never an easy thing to deal with.

Must make you proud....then again I guess not because you continue to try to distort and dance around. At least its entertaining us all.
    The BLS also says that California leads the Nation in poverty rates.

    Plus its currently the home to 1/3 of this Nations welfare recipients.

    Does that make you Libs proud ?

    Umm. I think you missed the part about the person writing the check was a client, but thanks for the sentiment.

    The tax resulted from the death of my wife's client. It was a tax on his estate. The tax was not levied until he died. That's called a death tax.

    I understand the greedy confiscation, shut up and be happy thing, envy does that to people who can't dream big enough.
