The Money he invested does NOT get taxed again.
I don't know if you have somebody do your taxes for you , IF you do then ask them.

Wrong.

Earnings are taxed once at the corporate level, when the company is taxed on its earnings.

Then distributions of those earnings to shareholders are taxed A SECOND TIME as dividend income.

If the earnings are retained by the company and not distributed, increasing share value, the shareholder who sells shares is taxed A SECOND TIME on the resulting capital gain.

Either way, investment income IS TAXED TWICE, once at the corporate level and again at the individual shareholder level.

<quoted text>Jim says he is a millionare and has a lot of money invested in stocks and does " day trading" I would have thought he would know the money he paid for the stock is not taxed anain when he sells a stock at a higher price than he paid for it .
He only pays taxes on the diff. between what he paid for the stock and what he sells it for and tax on any div. he gets when he owns the stock.
See he is so stupid he doesn't understand that the div. and the money he makes from the sale of his stock over and above what he paid for it is new income and that is all that gets taxed, NOT the money he paid for the stock in the first place, He really should talk to his tax guy.
Wouldn't you think a MILLIONARE like him that trades in stocks day in and day out would know this?

Here's the difference fool,they don't go around war mongering like Romney does.Says he supported nam but never went.Same with gulf wars,where were his big strapping boys,he supported the wars,just didn't want his baby boys fignting them,that's for the 47% to do.
Right.

No - Obama and Biden just kill US boys in Afghanistan. 1500 dead American kids in Afghanistan under Obama's command - QUADRUPLING the body count under Bush.

Provide the verbatim quotes of Romney's "warmongering," with sources cited. I say you're a lying azzwhole.

Cite any post, by Topix post number, in which I have expressed anything but gratitude and the highest respect for the US military - because again I say you're a yellow-bellied lying azzwhole.

Finally, my military service record is none of your business, and irrelevant. It's been my experience that those - like you ya yellow skunk - that constantly blather on about their military service - never in fact served, or they'd display some concept of honor.

You're dismissed, punk.

Elect Romney and keep filling Congress with TEA Party-backed candidates across the board in 2 weeks you'll see exactly how easily & quickly it can be done.
Otherwise, you're just helping bury the once-greatest nation on earth.
You do agree everything in the U,S. Budget should be open to cuts? Great news - I applaud you for it as a patriot.
Now go prove it - put your votes where your mouth is. Throw the Big-Government statists out of Washington.
Oh youre a teabagger. That makes all your insane views make sense now. You're part of the cult thats controlled by billionare counting on you to be dumb and believe lies. Now I can even more count off everything you say as invalid.

Hypocrisy alert: Obama used tax loopholes in 2011 to lower his tax bill
posted at 10:48 am on April 14, 2012 by Howard Portnoy
How sincere was the president when he complained that the current system is so unfair that he, a rich guy, gets to “keep hundreds of thousands of dollars in additional income” while other parents struggle to send their kids to college? Suffice it to say that he wasn’t sufficiently bothered to resist helping himself to a loophole in the tax code that decreased his taxable income in 2011 by nearly $50,000. The Washington Free Beacon reports:
President Obama and his wife, Michele, gave a total of $48,000 in tax-free gifts to their daughters, according to tax records made public on Friday.
The president and his wife separately gave each daughter a $12,000 gift under a section of the federal tax code that exempts such donations from federal taxes.
it was a yes or no question , thanks for a Romney answer .

Romney will whisper sweet nothings in Putin's ear like Obama did. LOL

Obama caved like a little girl to Putin, Romney is a man that will hold his own. Get with reality, Obama is a puppet who can't even stand up to his wife let alone a world leader.
Obama is weak, Obama is dumb, Obama is going home to his terroist friends in Chicago soon.
