    Precisely, which is why I'm arguing making everyone pay taxes on it, rather than just the very rich. Are you even reading what I'm posting?

    I never made that claim, though it is a sound one. How on earth can a dead person need money? The estate might need money to settle debts or pay for funeral costs, but if the inheritance was being treated as income, that wouldn't come into play until the estate was already done handling the money and it was actually disbursed to the recipients.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    then have the balls to leave my question out of it if you are too weak or afraid to give it an answer.

    Can you man up to that?

    Your questions really aren't important enough to merit any response. I cannot even remember what you were asking

    You may want to get that checked out.

    You may also want to review rule 4

    4. Don't Be A Jerk (DBAJ) - This simply means what it sounds like.
    Is it really too much to ask you to either reply to the question that you reproduce in your post before you go to standard Turtle Talking Point #4 or to not reproduce it altogether and just go to your canned schtick?
