1pg: They [economists] all said to tax the owners of the corporations, not the corporations themselves.I hope they realize that corporations are now people. That means that the owners of the corporations are slave owners. (This gives a different meaning to the term, "stock holder", n'est-ce pas? Perhaps a more accurate term for stock holders would be "chain holders".)In the pre-Civil War days, slave owners who had too many slaves would rent them out to non-slave owners who needed a little extra help. Some of those rent-a-slaves turned out to be very productive, and made their owners quite a bit of money -- just like corporations today.Neither the USA nor the Confederate States of America had an income tax, but one wonders: had they had such a tax, would they have taxed the rent-a-slave owners, the slaves themselves, or both?Loren(asking the difficult questions)
