    Your property is taxed at death--hence, death tax.

    are you unable to read what I posted? the act of death is not taxed-it is the act of death that causes the tax to come into play

    your dishonesty on this issue is amazing but I guess it is to be expected when one is so bitter towards those who are more industrious and prosperous than you are

    correct turtle, the act of death is not taxed, i'm glad to see you have finally seen the error of your ways...if the act of death is not taxed, then there can be no 'death tax'....

    But you said the judge was corrupt.

    I know it's a different Ryan.

    Paul Ryan couldn't get this:

    Of course the act isn't, no one is suggesting it is. You can't tax an act, you tax money/property.

    How is calling it the Death Tax inaccurate?
    Haymarket's "support" of the 2nd Amendment, a right he believes we never had.

    Absolutely - this is a keeper for the archives. Maybe everyone should use it as their signature for a month or so?

    Re: Paul Ryan, Help Or Hurt Romney

    Other than my poking fun at the poll options, I believe it's a doomed odd couple. A VP pick should never be more interesting than the actual candidate and Romney's flub of announcing the next president is a foreshadowing if nothing else, a peak into a private conversation he had with Ryan that was so ingrained on his mind that he blurted it out at a crucial step in his bid for presidency.
    "We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan
