credit where credit is due...it takes a big liberal pandering organization to admit that it was completely, irrationally, irresponsibly WRONG:

Who needs political cartoons when you can just follow Orin Hatch's twitter feed? Note that these two diametric tweets are barely a day apart.

Also, Oliver North called for the impeachment of Obama stating that he "got away with more than any previous administration".....



.....and thus irony is now dead.

I
mentioned a few days ago that Wall Street's 2013 bonus pool, handed out a few months ago, was so big it could have doubled the wage of every minimum-wage worker in America -- and that the pool was itself the result of a hidden subsidy from taxpayers to Wall Street. Below I've listed the incomes of the Street's top hedge-fund managers (the data are from 2010, the most complete available), on an hourly basis. Remember they get a $12 billion-per-year taxpayer subsidy in the form of the "carried-interest" loophole that allows them to treat this income as capital gains rather than ordinary income. When you hear that minimum-wage workers, now receiving $7.25 an hour, aren't "worth" any more than that, keep all this in mind.

Corporations are Hiding over Two Trillion Taxable Dollars from the IRS

WHERE IS YOUR OUTRAGE, TeaGeeTea and Booky?


The largest American multinational companies parked an additional $206 billion of profits in offshore accounts last year, according to Bloomberg, bringing the total amount of profits stashed where U.S. tax officials canít touch them up to about two trillion dollars.

The 307 companies that Bloomberg examined now hold a combined $1.95 trillion offshore, allowing them to avoid paying U.S. taxes on those earnings. The majority of the total is concentrated in just a few corporate hands. The largest 22 of those companies hold more offshore than the other 285 combined.

General Electric leads the pack, with $110 billion held offshore. Tech companies like Microsoft ($76.4 billion), Apple ($54.4 billion), IBM ($52.3 billion), and Google ($38.9 billion) also dominate, along with drug companies like Pfizer ($69 billion) and Merck ($57.1). The tech giants have drastically accelerated their offshore holdings in recent years, with Microsoft and Google more than doubling and Apple more than quadrupling offshore profit holdings from 2010 to 2013.

This propensity for profit-stashing among tech companies brought scrutiny from Congress last year, with committee reports and a Senate hearing where Apple CEO Tim Cook was called on to justify his firmís tax behavior. That scrutiny exposed the complexities of how Apple pulls off its tax avoidance scheme through a set of Ireland-based subsidiary companies, but it also underscored that everything these companies are doing is legal. The current international corporate tax system encourages countries like Ireland, Luxembourg, and others to race each other to the bottom of the business tax rate barrel.

While lawmakers around the world talk a good game about reforms that would change the incentives faced not only by companies but tax haven governments, most of that talk is still premised on the same sort of patchwork system thatís in place now. Ireland, for example, made a splash last fall by announcing some changes to its tax laws, but they do little to end the countryís status as a tax haven. Tweaking specific rules within that flawed system seems unlikely to produce meaningful changes in corporate behavior.
These companies face no meaningful negative consequences to stashing trillions from the taxman. When they need to access their offshore cash for investing in production or personnel, they can simply use the untaxed profits as collateral for borrowing from the financial sector. There is no business reason to stop ducking U.S. taxes, so it is up to lawmakers to address the problem.

Um, yeah, I can't have a feedlot, airport, or shooting range on my property, either.

Lots and lotsa reasons why doing a whole bunch of stupid sh#t on your property is prohibited.

I'm good with that. Really good with that.
