    When will you get a clue? Nobody is upset at the term itself. After all, its just another extremist neologism intended to fool the unsuspecting into betraying their own self interest. Its the sheer evil purpose of the user that is upsetting.

    well the most famous line from that great movie would be a most appropriate response to many of your questions I suspect

    several of us already educated you on the fact that the term neologism is not accurately applied to death tax

    Someone earned it but the people inheriting didn't.

    they probably did far more to earn it than the government that already took a huge cut while it was being made

    wealth looters...lol....the term doesnt bother me, it isnt accurate, and it is funny watching you constantly use it, pretending that it describes what happens...the act of your death, or that of anyone else, is not taxed, why do you want to pretend that it is?

    i find it hard to believe that you could 'educate' anyone, when you don't know anything about the subject you are discussing.

    well given I was the executor of my parents (both of them) estates and there was the death tax involved, I certainly know more than you will ever know on this
