    You want to bet on the stupidity and extremism of GOP voters? How can I win that bet Turtle?

    Sure there is. The 1% can afford it, and there aren't enough of them to be able to oppose such a measure. It's not FAIR reasoning, but it's logically sound.

    And I'm not sure why you keep hammering on this point to me. I'm the one arguing for making inheritance taxable income for everyone, which would mean it wan't just the 1% paying it anymore.

    everyone can afford it--remember its money they are just being given and you all have claimed that the dead person doesn't need it

    If it is based on how much you have, it makes perfect sense in every possible way. Only a zealot not looking at it objectively would fail to see that.

    Do me and the entire board a freaking favor man - next time you reproduce me asking you a question - like you just did in post 1714 - at least have the balls to answer it straight before you go into talking point #12.

    only someone envious of the rich or worried about losing votes would think that this nonsense should be inflicted only on those who already pay the most actual income tax dollars

    Then at least have the balls to leave me out of it if you are impotent to respond to the very question that you reproduce.

    Is that to much to ask of you?
