    Why do you insist on making low level personal slurs against those who simply disagree with you on a policy issue? To say something like your second line about emotional attachment and being in love is the antitheses of serious debate. Why do you engage in that when you claim to be an Ivy League educated attorney? It is perhaps the biggest mystery on this board.

    Your semantic games are childish. we all know what death tax refers to. and death is the precipitating event

    not creating or building up the estate

    My account with Uncle Sam increases as well - I authorize the IRS deduction when I fill out my W-4 form.

    Because it looks the same.
    Because it smells the same.
    Because if you stacked it up in tens nobody in the world could accurately tell the difference.
    Because it spends the same.
    Because it enriches you the same.

    And all this has been tediously explained to you on many occasions in many threads by many people many times.

    Playing semantic games is indeed childish. And that is exactly what you do when you engage in this death tax BS.

    And that is exactly what you do when you attack others personally with silly remarks abotu being in love when they take a different position than you do on national tax policy.

    Yes Turtle, CHILDISH is an excellent descriptor.

    You have been taught repeatedly over and over and over by many people that DEATH does not tax anybody. Even the very rich with estates up the rear corridor. Let them burn it all with them in a glorious Viking style pyre. How much will they owe in death tax for that Turtle? How much is that death tax?

    Lets bet 500 dollars haymarket

    I bet more than half of those who actually know what the estate tax is (ie GOP voters) will also say that "death tax" means the same thing

    Re: which best describes your view of the inheritance tax?

    Since "income" seems to have so many different meanings depending on the circumstances, maybe we should just call it the slave tax. I'm sure most people are aware of the term "wage slave" so it won't be a big step to rename the tax for it to slave tax.
