You are at about a 4th grade Ditto head level when it comes to politics.

I post things in jest... assuming no one is stupid enough to miss the intent.

You come back, as if it's a serious post.

And now you attack my intelligence.

Too funny!

Maybe most of the 500 do, but many do not--including multi-billion dollar corporations. This issue is much more than a mere "liberal talking point."

http://www.usatoday.com/story/money/business/2013/10/23/big-companies-pay-no-taxes/2480281/

According to your article 11% of the S&P 500 didn't pay taxes. What the article didn't say was how many had an operating loss or carried forward a previous loss.

Yes, we need to overhaul our corporate welfare laws/programs.

But it's nothing like the picture presented by some of our mouth-breathing liberals.

Exhibit A:
Yes, I am going to complain about Corporations Not paying their taxes
We wouldn't be in debt of $17 trillion in the Corporations didn't get so many tax breaks that their lobbyists bought from Republicans

That tired old Republican argument is ridiculous. Corporations are people, remember--see Citizens United v. Federal Elections Commission. Unlike a piece of property, corporate entities (except S Corps and other pass through tax entities) are SUPPOSED to pay income taxes. The idea that consumers somehow benefit (as opposed to the shareholders) by completely avoiding payment of federal income tax is completely absurd.

Curt

Yes, corporations are "persons" within the meaning of the First Amendment, but they are not "individuals" within the meaning of the law or the dictionary. Which individuals pay the corporate income tax, Curt? No one?
Do tell.

Sorry if someone posted this already; it posted earlier this week as an opinion piece. You may not agree with each point; just food for thought.

Six reasons ObamaCare is a raving, rollicking, fantastic success.
Stop calling it a failure. Here is what it was created to do. It is succeeding on all counts.

1. ObamaCare was intended to bring about the Marxist dream -- redistribution of wealth.

Rich people, small business owners, and the middle class are being robbed, so that the money can be redistributed to poor people (who vote for Democrats). Think about it; If you’re rich or middle class, you now have to pay for your own health care costs (at much higher rates) AND 40 million other people’s costs too (through massive tax increases).
So you’re stuck paying for both bills. You are left broke. Brilliant.

2. ObamaCare was intended to wipe out the middle class and make them dependent on government.

Think about it. Even Obama’s IRS predicts that health insurance for a typical American family by 2016 will be $20,000 per year. But how would middle class Americans pay that bill and have anything left for food or housing or living? People that make $40K, or $50K, or $60K can’t possibly hope to spend $20K on health insurance without becoming homeless.
Bingo. That’s how you make middle class people dependent on government. That’s how you make everyone addicted to government checks. Brilliant.

3. As a bonus, ObamaCare is intended to kill every decent paying job in the economy, creating only crummy, crappy part-time jobs.

Why? Just to make sure the middle class is trapped, with no way out. Just to make sure no one has the $20,000 per year to pay for health insurance, thereby guaranteeing they become wards of the state. Brilliant.

4. ObamaCare is intended to bankrupt small business, and therefore starve donations to the GOP.

Think about it. Do you know a small business owner? I know hundreds of them. Their rates are being doubled, tripled and quadrupled by ObamaCare.
Guess who writes 75% of the checks to Republican candidates and conservative causes? The GOP.

Even if a small business owner manages to survive, he or she certainly can’t write a big check to the GOP anymore. Money is the “mother’s milk” of politics. Without donations, a political party ceases to exist. Bingo. That’s the point of ObamaCare. Obama is bankrupting his political opposition and drying up donations to the GOP. Brilliant.

5. ObamaCare is intended to make the IRS all-powerful.

It adds thousands of new IRS agents. It puts the IRS in charge of overseeing 15% of the U.S. economy. The IRS has the right because of ObamaCare to snoop into every aspect of your life, to go into your bank accounts, to fine you, to frighten you, to intimidate you. And Obama and his socialist cabal have access to your deepest medical secrets.

By law your doctor has to ask your sexual history. That information is now in the hands of Obama and the IRS to blackmail GOP candidates into either not running, or supporting bigger government, or leaking the info and ruining your campaign. Or have you forgotten the IRS harassed, intimidated and persecuted critics of Obama and conservative groups?

Now Obama hands the IRS even more power. Big Brother rules our lives. Just brilliant.

6. ObamaCare is intended to unionize 15 million healthcare workers.

That produces $15 billion in new union dues. That money goes to fund Democratic candidates and socialist causes -- thereby guaranteeing Obama’s friends never lose another election, and Obama’s policies keep ruining capitalism and bankrupting business owners long after he’s out of office.

Message to the GOP: This isn't a game. This isn't tiddlywinks. This is a serious, purposeful attempt to hijack America and destroy capitalism.

This isn't a train wreck. It's purposeful suicide.

It's not failing; it's working exactly according to plan. Obama knows what he’s doing. Stop apologizing and start fighting.

Oh and one more thing…Conservatives aren't “terrorists.” We are patriots and saviors. We represent the Constitution and the Founding Fathers. We are the heroes and good guys. Unless you get all this through your thick skulls, America is lost…forever.

Mimi, I bet your local community college has a remedial course on American history. You should sign up! If you knew your history, you'd know that the conservatives in 1776 wanted to HANG the Founding Fathers. The conservatives of 1776 fought for KING GEORGE III.

"You're entitled to your own opinions, but not your own facts."

Oh, wait, I forgot:
"Facts are stupid things." -- Ronald Reagan

edit: I shouldn't be a smartass to Mimi, but that BS about the "patriotic" conservatives has always made me laugh. They can't have it both ways.

Have you ever been to a fish hatchery? They keep the fish in these long tanks. They use a special truck to feed the fish. The truck has a feeding tube that hangs over the tank, dispensing pellets, as the truck drives beside the tanks.

The fish are so conditioned, that if you just walk along a tank, with your arm held out, they'll react. They have a a built-in automatic response to the stimuli. I think it's called a "fixed-action pattern"

Some of the posters around here demonstrate fixed-action patterns, too.

Here, fishy fishy...

All you have to do is listen to ten minutes of the Rush Limbaugh show to know where these people are coming from.
They believe the lies.

Of course we are appalled, you would be appalled too if knew what was going on here
