My bet is it will be upon the landowner!
I missed several hours of discussion but it appears Gale finally found her/his meds. Would be a great name for a band. I should not have been so confrontational with Gale but I find her/his elitist attitude way off base. I don't think she/he had anything personal toward any of us but like an Indian at the pinacle of the cast system, she looks down on the rest of us as all peasants and can't differentiate any difference between a conservative and an occupier because they are all down stream in her/his eyes. Likewise I appreciate your and others desire to inform, educate and discuss.
You should look at Alaska also. Instead of income tax, residents got a check from the State. Inflation was high even for an island like State. Looked great on paper and the residents loved it. I was visiting in Anchorage when oil dropped to $12.50 bbl. and the news came that the State lost their revenue source and the checks stopped to the residents and they still had prices tripple ours on most everything. Don't put all your eggs in one basket.
Lets look at this;
So Billy the rich don't eat or pay freight charges on their proucts or real estate taxes on their homes and ranches? Give me a freaking break. You’re trying rather poorly to play the class warfare game. What are you an occupy wall street supporter of Obama's?
gale Might I say that your tone is rather hostile? Hidden taxes called fines, Big Bad Tobacco gets fined and cigarette prices goes up to pay the fine that the government gets that to me is a hidden tax with the poor paying that hidden tax called a fine. EPA fines the power company and we see the AEP trying to increase rates.
Anytime anyone sets a price in order to make a profit and are operating on a budget and the cost to make that product, to market the product, comply with added regulation they increase the cost of the product, fairly simple.
In case you do not know it transportation trucking has a fuel surcharge that is added to the cost of the freight that the consumer pays for.
I did not say the rich does not pay taxes they do however enjoy the capability of reducing the taxes they do pay by shifting the tax to the lower class.
I am far from a occupier! But I will say I believe a flat tax on income with no deductions with no hidden taxes, excise taxes, user fees as a form of tax I would enjoy seeing. It makes no sense to me to see one work overtime at time and a half and end up with less per hour than straight pay.
Buy the way I am PUBLIC ENEMY N0 1. I am a Nam Vet, I own guns and Sarah Palin autographed my Vet hat! I request you back off.
First off you attacked me in you rant. Now anyone with half a brain would see I was far from being a supporter of the occupiers or Obuma! In reference to "Buy the way I am PUBLIC ENEMY N0 1. I am a Nam Vet, I own guns and Sarah Palin autographed my Vet hat!" Please see http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2009/04/16/napolitano-apologizes-of...""To the extent veterans read it as an accusation ... an apology is owed," she said during an on-air interview on FOX News Thursday, a day after veterans' groups and members of Congress blasted her for the report, which they said libeled members of the armed forces."
That was disproving your your rant! As far as " I request you back off" I was trying to be politically correct but since that did not cross your mind maybe plain old common farm language might do " I request you shut up" THERE!
QUESTION HERE since it got lost in the melee
Question here. If a severance tax is supposed to be put upon a landowner by the state or county but is paid by the oil producer wouldn't the land owner have to pay a income tax upon that amount as a paid benefit?
Mark I am trying to ascertain if a O&G pays all of the severance tax although a land owner might be responsible for paying a share if that shared amount paid by the O&G would be taxable as income?
