Angry toliet spins in circle but wont come out

OK everyone here I am again....... single, old and trying to fix stuff myself. LOL

I have the tank off. the water supply off, and the 2 bolts at the bottom ( at the floor) so loose that it will spin in circles, but............. I cant get the darn thing to come off the floor.

You cannot just "loosen" the bolts (or nuts). The bottom of those toilet bolts have a wide flat head that slides into a slot in the toilet flange. You need to take the nuts off of the bolts. Use a pair of pliers if you need to hang onto the bolt while you wrench the nut off. If the nut won't move, use a hacksaw blade (pref. in a recip. saw).
Then you can lift the toilet up and off the bolts.
