    Of course they survived the '29 crash and depression, so paying taxes meant they had a job!

    I work for attorneys who are always filling their client's heads with anti-tax talk (avoid the 'death" tax by doint this . . .).  What they don't realize is they are the freeloaders who are taking advantage of people who do pay their fair share of taxes.  The wealthy and the corporations no longer shoulder their share of our tax burden.

      How much of the tax burden would you have the "wealthy" and the "corporations" share? All of it? Have you bothered looking at the IRS published data to see how much the "wealthy" already pay? Please, what exactly is their "fair share"?

      Here's another thing - all that work done by tax attorneys in in finding LEGAL tax avoidance measures. How exactly is taking advantage of those LEGAL means being a freeloader?
