eh, one thing I find interesting is the divide between the funded and the bootstrappers. I mean, if you are building a company to sell, you will pay capital gains taxes, and thus like things like Obama's proposed capital gains tax break. If you are building a company to run, then the very concept of charging a different tax rate for income and for capital gains seems unfair, because you've got to pay full-on income tax on any money you take out without selling out.
