Yes you are but stating it should be subjective to a completely different tax scheme then gambling... because well it is non value add like gambling.

I am ok with taxing something that is essentially gambling.

No, I am not saying it should be taxed because it is akin to gambling

This is more of a gambling tax than an investment tax.


How about you finish the above debate with yourself first....

I question whether behavior will actually change with the tax. I doubt it will to any appreciable level
So your justification for the tax is that it would discourage gambling, but now you don't feel like it have any effect? Great rationality you have. Awesome.

Look look look...you're all getting waaaaaaay too caught up in details like "unintended consequences" and whether or not this tax makes any damn sense whatsoever, or why in the blue hell is this even being considered in the first place.

The bottom line is the government NEEDS more of your money, and they are going to get it one way or another. Might as well get used to it.

Umm, no. I have already said this is a tax increase I am ok with because I happen to believe we need more tax revenue right now.

And I already stated why. Not going to keep repeating myself.

Not reading the next 6 pages but I basically agree with this. Perhaps we should ban taxes!

When are you liberals going to learn -- we don't have a f*cking revenue problem -- we have a f*cking liberal spending problem. You could raise $6 TRILLION in new taxes and you no-good slime-ball pieces of f*cking filthy Democrats would spend three times that. You're like little children who don't know understand that they can't buy a f*cking Mercedes with their $1/week allowance.

No. I donated at least $10k to their cause last year.
As I suspected. You're projecting your propensity to gamble onto others.

quote:

Oh, and as to the part of you not believing about my "thousands" in brokerage fees, it was DEFINTELY a few thousand. I was trading in and out of the same few stocks 5-10x a day paying a fee on every trade.
Oh I fully believed it. But if you were day trading 5-10x per day and paying full retail fees you were doing it wrong.

Transaction tax aside, isn't our revenue estimates for 2013 higher than ever?

Yeah, but so are entitlement and medical costs.

Which I am in favor of cutting as previously noted.

I am very good at it. One of the best around in fact. I can name one attorney that is better in the area, but I have mastered his strategies and structuring. Just not his litigation success if challenged.

If so why are you having to solicit business on an anonymous message board?

Would you be OK with a special tax on ex-Auburn living in Miami tax? I mean... The government needs more tax money, and that good enough reason, right?

I'm just fricking with you. If you had said yes, I wouldn't have cared and wouldn't have given you my information.

It should have been obvious as well it was not a serious question.

Not to mention, the structuring strategies really require about $10M in investment to make them cost effective.
