Quotation of the Day…

in SEEN AND UNSEEN, TAXES

*** begin quote ***

… is from EconLog’s David Henderson who recalls how the Herbert Stein described the failure to understand that taxes on corporations are taxes on people:

“I remember that in addressing the issue in the 1980s, the late Herb Stein said that it’s as if people think that if the government imposed a tax on cows, the tax would be paid by the cows.”

*** end quote ***

This reaffirms my RANT about the fact that a “corporation” is a fiction for a mob of real people. WHICH does nothing but hide the taxes in costs passed along to REAL people.

Argh!

President Obama has never explained why he has a Conncecticut-based Social Security Number

President Obama’s potentially criminal use of a mysterious, Connecticut-based Social Security Number should become an important issue in his quest for re-election in 2012, says a former presidential candidate and ambassador in Ronald Reagan’s administration.

Another question about BHO44 that needs an answer.
