    Simply present his authoritative and undebatable definition along with his official credentials as the Supreme Authority on Defining Debate Terms and I will gladly bow to them.

    I will await you doing that. right.

    I am an agnostic, I don't worship much of anything. I am too intelligent to subordinate my intellect to a myth

    and speaking of greed-its you who spend hours justifying your desire for your beloved deity (big government) to take more and more and more from others

    Hmm. Let's see, he shows an understanding of economics, so yes he does have credibility. Care to adress where you are wrong or do you want to keep dodging?
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Thousands of your post say otherwise Turtle.

    If you need them - yet again for a time beyond counting - I will be happy to reproduce here your contrary and hypocritical positions on taxation in your own words which prove one thing - your desire to a tax cut for more money in your pocket countering all things including logic and consistency.

    Would you like to see your own words on that................ yet again?

    Dodging? You are moving faster than a class of second graders being introduced to dodgeball in a gym class for the first time.

    All you need to do is show me how this person you refer to in a post giving his opinion is accepted here as The Official Definer Of All Terms In Debate and Is Above Challenge or Reproach.

    Then you may have something more than just your own vendetta against me.

    and by the way - I am not the one who cares to address where I am wrong - that is your job by reproducing my posts and showing with verifiable evidence where I am wrong. You would have learned that in debate had you been educated in that art.

    So do you still assert that inheritance is income or not?

    Your concept of contradictory is amusing

    1) I have said there is an ideal type of taxation

    2) I have said there is a workable best system

    3) and I have said i support some alternatives over the present system

    not a contradiction

    Its like saying I'd love to be married to a woman that would look like Say Ana Ivanovich who has an IQ of 200, has the personality and cooking skills of my wife.

    while My wife doesn't look like Ana Ivanovich and her IQ is only 145.

    hardly a contradiction

    but your consistency is obvious. Any thing that justifies looting the most productive members of the citizenry you support

    You want fairness in "income taxation" except you want unfairness when it comes to the rates the rich pay in overall effective tax rates compared to anyone else

    you want fairness except the rich will pay much more for nothing additional in return

    You say the progressive income tax is justified because the masses-through their representatives have so decreed it to be justified but you piss and moan about investment income being taxed less (for everyone) though those two rates are decreed as correct by the same body that imposed the income tax

    Re: which best describes your view of the inheritance tax?

    I didn't pick an option, because inheritance is income and should be taxed like income.

    All income should be taxed identically. And to those who say, "it's been taxed", all income has been taxed. We tax transfers of income when it's paid to workers. We tax income during a purchase as sales tax.

    Thus, treat it like everything else.
