    Just who are these “wealthy” who control the US? Most of our wealthy aquired their wealth in their lifetimes. What wealth did Mark Zuckerberg inherit? Bill Gates? Steve Jobs? What great wealth was it that John D. Rockerferlla inherit? How about Sam Walton?

    ^Hmm, Koch brothers, Walton family, right, inheritance is good, especially with no taxes on it.

    You’re absolutely right! Every great fortune was earned by SOMEONE (maybe not the current heirs) and should not be given to those not named in the Last Will and Testament.


    Sam earned the money, so now the Waltons MUST be allowed to keep it, all of it, since imposing any inheritance tax on what Sam left behind when he shuffled off this mortal coil is clearly theft that’s unfair to his Walton heirs.

    Actually, if we were going t follow the ultra conservative mantra that states that all wealthy and super wealthy are better because they earned every penny of their wealth, then the government should have an inheritance tax of 100%!! This is because if the inheritors themselves lose all of the inherited wealth, then they get to start all over again, and this is obviously better for their outlook on the wealth that they actually earned!!

    Oh no, the wealthy evil rich are out to get the USA! Hide the women and children, oh the horrors. I mean they might offer a job over a government hand out. Oh no. Must use the Tax code to make it fair. Obama says so. He he he make it fair at the low cost of two votes, hopefully in two elections.

    Bush didn’t want to cut taxes on the “job creators”. But all the jobs they created were in China, Mexico and India.

    Yea, Sam did build up a great business, and his kids certainly made it big-time. As Wal-Mart began expanding into New England, they ballyhooed about the “fact” that they only sold U.S. made goods. As I visited the first time, I found many items which were NOT. Since then, their presence has exploded all over the U.S. and the world. Low wages. Few benefits. Temps. Illegal aliens. Cheating on overtime hours. They own factories in China. (They should fly the Chinese flag over their stores) They even defended Chinese companies, sued by U.S. manufacturers for “dumping”. Underpricing, to drive local Drug stores out of business. Political contributions/Lobbyist fees? I don’t want to even ask! Oh, yes, this is Unrestrained Capitalism at it’s finest!

    Tigger: may want to list the millions who’ve worked far harder, for decades, and gotten nowhere? Creativity, is rewarded on occasion, but those occasions are far rarer than, failure. It is connections and “luck” that play a large role in success, and finding a “sugar daddy” to pull you up is often key. Our national policy should be for everyone to have access to that “sugar daddy”, but it ain’t going to happen.


    Now having someone with the technology to cross interstellar space and ask for financial advice?That is the joke of the ’toon.

    Right. In point of fact, you can’t have a democracy without a confiscatory inheritance tax.

    Of the richest women in the U.S., only less than 5% did not get it from inheritance.
