    That would mean that all money coming in is revenue, all expenses are deductible and I'm sure we can find corporate loopholes that could mean I owe no taxes, just like the big guys.  If the IRS doesn't like that, then maybe we need to reverse the "decision" that corporations are people and money is speech.  If everyone did that, how quick would they change the laws?

    •  Better yet, I'll declare myself a Bank (3+ / 0-)

      then I can get zero interest loans from the Fed that nobody expects to be repaid.  I think I could use a few $billion.  I'm not being greedy, am I?

        You can borrow for bonuses only.

        I'm reading this book called The Swedish Social Democrats. Written by Herbert Tingsten in 1941 and finally published in English in 1973, a year before I was born. I love finding these jewels in my local used bookstore.
