Actually, an inheritance would be tax exempt and would a gift, in which the giver would be accessed tax liability.

Lotteries, bonuses, et al would be taxed at the subject to federal, state and local income taxes. In my neck of the woods, it would be about 40%. Now 600K is a really nice chunk of change, but not enough to live on into retirement.

I finally put my compost bin together; I already had a halfway decent compost pile going--between the 2 years worth of yard waste gathering in the curb gutter when I moved in and that same amount of crud collecting in the rain gutters on the house, all I've had to add was one lawn mowing's worth of clippings and my kitchen veggie scraps to have a nice 'starter' pile.

I think you've missed the points of prior debates. Some people do have advantages and some have disadvantages that may be difficult to overcome; pretending that they don't matter or exist is your modus operandi.

"Some people are born on third base and go through life thinking they hit a triple." Life isn't equal or even fair, but recognizing a journey may be easier for one person doesn't negate the eventual accomplishments of all.

I have no idea where you would have gotten that idea from anything I have ever said.

Yes, teaching a child that they are no more or less special than anyone else is a far cry from pretending that differences (advantages or disadvantages) don't exist at all.
