In my life I don't think that I have ever talked to a person that was born in the US and was more of a communist than you seem to be.


i'm not a communist and this isn't fox news so you can't just avoid the discussion by calling people you disagree with "communist"

why does personal responsibility and hard work only matter if you're the child of poor or middle class families? why are some people simply entitled to the wealth obtained through the exploitation of the working class over generations, while food stamps and unemployment are literally hitler? what your parents made is no more "yours" than tax dollars, particularly by the time you've reached adulthood.

what's wrong with the estate tax? it's not like you're going to be doing anything with your poo when you're dead and i mean, i don't want some stupid parasites inheriting their parents' stuff rather than actually working for a living am i right fellow republicans?


I know a bunch of trust funds kids.

And I know a bunch of welfare recipients.

Guess what I have observed?

trust fund kids have been given every opportunity to succeed, from the cradle to the grave, due entirely to their winning the genetic lottery

Good for them.

You reckon if you give lazy people more welfare they will be successful?

wait so you agree that being given a comfortable life leads to success (trust fund kids), but that it wouldn't work for poor people because of your gut feeling?

i think we're done here

No.

Because of observable and ample evidence.

The owner of the company I once worked for once explained how evil the estate tax is.

He told me how after his father died, rather than selling the rest of the family business off and going traveling while living off his inheritance, the estate taxes forced him to take over the company, and grow it to the $60 million, 45 employee company it is today.

It was then I realized how far we had fallen as a country.
