I love how the people who pay the vast majority of the taxes are continually attacked for, "Not paying their fair share".

Agreed. Im a libertarian as most here but we have to deal with reality and that reality is that the US goverment (and all the other ones) are enormous and must be fed with taxes. Small businesses pay a large %age in taxes to help finance this but i read all the time about GE, google, apple etc paying a very small %age in tax.

This is unfair regardless of the total amount, if not for any other reason then because it hurts competion and fair competition between companies large and small is crucial for our wellbeing i think.

Until I see congressmen starving to death while in office(there's some hope and change for ya), the government does not need more revenue.

From ANY source.

Monthly federal tax receipts are at an all time high. But there is no cutting back on spending whatsoever so the deficit grows and grows. You could finance a small nation on what we spend for domestic SWAT teams alone.

GE can afford lobbyist and lawyers, not to mention politicians. This is the reason that large businesses don't really object to large governments; they have a major competitive advantage over smaller businesses when it comes to dealing with the government.

If the free shit army is hungry then obviously there is more to take.

Since the FSA is a huge majority. It's a win win for all but the working class.

Uh. Corporations pay about 10% of the tax revenue the U.S. Government collects. The rest comes from us suckers.

Might want to check your facts there sparkie, The US has some of the highest corporate tax rates, 15 to 35% just for Federal. Then you can add the State corporate tax rates on top of that. That is why companies are relocating their operations off shore like to the Caymen Islands - 0% corporate tax rate.....

whoever coined the little phrase, 'their fair share'. that was brilliant. the assonance just rolls off the tongue. i didn't like it, but had to admit it was catchy for the consumption of hairlips.

Diversification.  Bitcoin is well under 1% of what I own.  It seems robust, we'll see.  Bitcoin is not run by Obama either...

52100 is the grade of steel (approx 1% C and 1% Cr, it is a fairly hard steel, but will corrode), but we are now treading on ground I do not know much about... *

Armor pierrcing bullets?  If they would build VERY strong cartridges and put in very powerful propellant, than TUNGSTEN bullets would be my choice

Indeed, they will use that phrase when they convert your 401k into a Myra account.

Just getting the sheeple used to it before they turn it onto them as a weapon.

Its only fair to the children, that we have economic patriotism.

Catchy heh ?

Not exactly raymond.

All companies should pay the same % tax. Some of the huge US corporations have became insanly good at avoiding just that and thus places a larger burden on the corporations and people who do pay their taxes without abusing every loophole.

Socialism is redistribution of wealth which is almost always wrong. Everyone paying the same is fairness. I think.

How about that Goldman's thief Jon Corzine?  Oh that's right, Obamination is calling him asking him what to do. Then they use taxpayer money to bailout the banksters' bad casino bets.  Fuck Obama and his economic patriotism.  

"The president and I weren't back there blaming Jon Corzine then, you know what we were doing? We were on the phone calling Jon Corzine, literally, I literally picked up the phone and called Jon Corzine and said Jon what do you think we should do?"
