    Small riverboat, slathering, upscale service, and you get to see neat places. Yea, yea, Myanmar isn't the best location, but there are plenty of others. I wanted to point out one on a smaller company offering impeccable service in odd corners of the planet because those are often the neatest places to see.

    Hell, I'd rather do Planet Japan again than Disney. At least the Japanese really mean it when they're nice to you.
    Back when Disney cartoons were more common on t.v., I think kids might have been more interested in Disneyworld/Land.

    Now they would be more interested in a paint ball theme park

    it is a silly diversion anyway

    the point being - we clearly have the ability to refuse to defend intellectual property if we can confiscate physical property derived from labor.

    never thought I would run into a troll that argues labor is untaxable (although I would agree it should not be).

    withholding is not a tax, its an estimate of the tax you will ultimately owe based on your income.

    I'm not really sure why he keeps making this argument? If you're self employed, there are different tax categories for different applications.

    All income aside from Capital Gains income is derived from some sort of labor.

    Incorrect. It's called 'withholding tax' for a reason.

    Read a W-4

    I pay estimated tax as a self employed individual. It's still a tax payment

    The Wonderful World of Disney holds the record as the longest showing prime-time program on American television. It took Disney Channel's birth on cable to kill it off

    Define 'income'. The IRS seems to have great difficulty with this.

    What about investors? It's not their time or effort. They are investing in the time and effort of someone else. What about charities? If you put time and effort in to support a charity, that is not taxed.

    What is the income of a gambler? He can't prove his losses. Does he even have a net profit? He put a lot of time and effort into his gaming, and LESS to show for it most of the time.

    What about those that put in very little time or effort, yet get paid lots of money?

    What about the criminal? His time and effort is spent stealing someone else's time and effort.

    What about a collectible just sitting on the shelf while gaining value. The only time and effort is to sell it at a high (sometimes much higher!) price than what you paid for it. Why is a ditch digger that makes far less money taxed less?

    Care to try to define 'income' a little better than that? Your definition doesn't work.
