    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    You're right. How I take it is less important than how the audience takes it. I'm sure they see your dodge and know you are weaseling out.

    Agreed. That's when the fancy footwork starts. Dodge - weave - bob.

    well, i guess the next time i want your opinion on a matter, i'll just go read what the IRS has to say and put those words in your mouth..

    talk about being a statist.. jeez " i have no opinion of my own beyond what the government/law tells me".

    peachy.

    you really don't want that if it deals with dividends-you want dividends taxed at 61%

    yet while he praises the income tax as being perfect since the people through their representatives have decreed it to be fair but he howls about the investment rates which of course come from the same ruling body

    It is basic English and should be at your reading level.

    Part two of my answer could probably be seen by Ray Charles - and he is both blind and dead.

    It has been made abundantly clear that LA and Centinel see me as a sworn enemy of their ideology and must do everything in their power to attack at every possible opportunity. engaging in the oatmeal absurdities - which have already been roundly discredited by others and myself - only prove this and now yoru attempt to resurrect your own strawman zombies tell everyone what they need to know about you and your motivations.

    Honest debate about the inequities and unfairness of capital gains and inheritance exemptions providing discriminatory preferences being two examples.

    As all of you know, and has already been pointed out days ago when this first strawman was trotted out of the barn, our system distinguishes between responsibilities to children as well as normal gifts of a certain monetary level which are outside normal laws on exchange of wealth and gifts. That factual reality is good enough for 311 million Americans who know the difference between a birthday present and an inheritance of $800,000.00. Of course, they are not right leaning libertarians who mistakenly they are as clever as David Blaine with a deck of marked cards.

    Why do I need to have an opinion on the matter of your false beliefs about anything?

    Manure is more useful than that dishonest slur.

    The next time you go to a state wide right wing libertarian meeting take a poll and see how the three of you voted.
