    Lets review

    you want dividends taxed at the same rate as earned income

    you want the top bracket to be at least 40%

    take one million in corporate profit that is being distributed to me (a top one percenter)

    350K is taken from that pool by the federal government in corporate taxes leaving 650K

    40% taken from that remaining 650K at the distribution level

    that is 260K

    leaving 390K for me and the parasitic government takes 610K

    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.
    Ah, so you want to change the definition of income in order to double and triple tax people who make more money than you deem unacceptable. In other words whatever you feel is the truth is sufficient as information. Good to know.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    The right libertarian forgets - or perhaps pretends is a better word - that in a democratic republic the opinion of the citizens are pretty damn important.

    I have no idea what you are talking about.

    I would be happy to look at the absolute official last word that the entire world agrees on the definition of every word that we debate here.

    Can you now provide them?

    Actually no it isn't. What IS important is the constitution and NOT what the polls say.

    most people haven't a clue

    indeed more people are able to tell you who the two finalists of the last AMERICAN IDOL were than name their own state's two senators. That is why the dems spew the crap about the rich not paying their fair share. It enrages the sheeple

    I have no reason to think anything about your silly beliefs about spouses and the estate tax that are false from the get go. I provided you with the information that showed your question was blatantly foolish and without merit and you were ignorant of the reality of the situation.

    So now you continue to whine that I have not given my opinion on your delusions? Amazing.

    Stillballin' already spelled out what income is. You are arguing an incompatible definition, what part of my argument are you not understanding?
