Ancient Atlanta was more than just a Delta hub! It was a vibrant metropolis, the equal of Paris or New York!

They make a good case for the inheritance tax.

I've never heard that one before. But I have several friends who are probably going to be testing it out.

Makes a weird kind of sense.

Generally it's three generations from wealthy to bust.

I met a guy in Atlanta, and when I asked him what he did for a living, he said "oh, my grandmother bought a bunch of Coca-Cola stock".

In a meritocracy, it would be impossible to make "Having Rich Parents" into a career.

If we can use our tax system to put Al Capone in jail, we can use it to end excessive intergenerational wealth transfer.

I skimmed this headline and something else popped into my mind.

This isn't the first time Asa V has been on the brink. It just looks like he's actually going over this time.

Meanwhile, the Woodruffs are snickering up their sleeves.

Dude; you're in the soda business. Don't mess around with real estate.

My brother-in-law was laid off from the Coke bottling division last fall. Apparently every 15 years they completely still off or repurchase all their bottling lines.

What's nice about America is that we don't allow this, which prevents that money going to pay for idiots like you.

/I don't care if the rich have more money than me
//I don't think that I'll get rich
///I just don't want Democrats to have the rich peoples' money to make my life worse

And how, exactly, would they do that? How, exactly, did they do it when the highest tax rate was 90%? Provide examples where it would or has specifically impacted you.

You know, those lousy democrats and their schools, and police, and firefighters, and roads, and sewers, and parks, and courts, and jails, and traffic signals, and rec centers, and libraries, and youth sports leagues, and 911 services, and snow removal, and building inspections, and zoning enforcement, and senior centers. You know, all that stuff that makes our lives a living hell.

Maybe they should add cocaine back to the recipe.

If they would make real coca cola like the Mexican coke, they would sell more, but using sugar is too expensive, while high fructose corn syrup causes obesity and diabetes...
profit, profit, profit!
