'Huge Number' of Tax-Dodging Corporations Preparing to Expatriate
"In this corner of the tax code, we've gone way past treating corporations like people," said Sen. Elizabeth Warren. "In this corner of the tax code, we treat corporations better than people."

The Treasury Department is reportedly exploring possible “administrative actions” that could block inversions or “meaningfully reduce” the associated tax benefits. And congressional Democrats are preparing to advance legislation in September that will outlaw the loophole or hinder its profitability.
Meanwhile, Republicans have grabbed on the issue as an opportunity to argue for a lower corporate tax rate.


 I was checking around the web… yes… on decidedly left leaning websites, as is my stupid f*#king American liberty, and I read a little blurb that clearly showed me the difference between the two parties (there really is no difference I know, but the republicans suck exceptionally well) that is available for the public to see…

What we can only speculate about is who these republicans become behind closed doors? (That sounds an awful lot like the christian anti-gay rhetoric) Behind closed doors, making deals that ultimately we will never know the details of, but ultimately result in the American taxpayers funds being used to pay back the republican donors…. The only ones the republicans really care about.

Norton's been a trollish turd, lately.

But he's a fellow traveller... so it's all good, right?

It's only bad when the other guy's do it.

Are you getting picked on, Sketch? Poor fella.

DETROIT — A suburban Detroit homeowner was convicted on Thursday of the shotgun murder of a young woman after she banged on his front door last November in the middle of the night.

The case has carried racial overtones here because the defendant, Theodore Wafer, 55, is white and the woman, 19-year-old Renisha McBride, was black. Throughout the trial, however, neither the prosecution nor the defense raised the issue of race. Mr. Wafer was found guilty of second-degree murder, manslaughter, and a felony firearm charge.

Mr. Wafer, an airport maintenance worker who lived alone, claimed self-defense in the shooting, testifying that he was awakened about 4:30 a.m. by violent pounding on his front and side doors. He panicked, he said, and within minutes scrambled for his shotgun, believing that someone was attempting to break into his home, a small bungalow in Dearborn Heights, just across the city line from Detroit.

But after less than two days of deliberations, the jury appeared to agree with the prosecution that Mr. Wafer had acted recklessly, killing Ms. McBride with a single shotgun blast through his locked screen door rather than calling the police and seeking help.


Finally a dose of sanity.

not really, Sketch

just asking you some questions, just like you ask other people questions

and when people don't see your question because we are on a new page by then or because they just don't care for whatever reason to answer your questions, you then often act like a wounded baby and cry out that you are being ignored, boo hoo

Sketch, your putrid trolling of this political thread went into high gear as soon as the climate change thread cooled down

no coincidence as you played the same game on that thread that you play here, never engaging in civil honest discussion but instead asking irrelevant and childish questions of everyone then crying when they ignore you

on this thread it is painfully obvious that you know very little about any "issues" because you ignore and don't answer questions others put to you

your schtick in general is too be an obnoxious presence in the hope that someone will pay attention to you and reply

what we all should do is just ignore you like adults do with petulant children

Oh man. I just caught up with the last few pages and I can see why Sketch sticks to just askin questions because when it comes to making assertions backed with data he's just reading from the TGT/bluering playbook.

I'm with Norton on his his take of Sketch. The country has to hit rock bottom when the upper one to two percent have it all, then maybe the pitchforks will come out and somehow the people will gain control of the congress and not the special interest groups.

Done and done. Though if Sketch musters a decent post I have no problem responding to that.


So for like an hour it sounded like maybe we had bombed ISIS in Iraq but now it's looking like it was the Iraqi or Turkish military though now Turkey is denying it too.

http://www.nytimes.com/2014/08/08/world/middleeast/obama-weighs-military-strikes-to-aid-trapped-iraqis-officials-say.html?hp&action=click&pgtype=Homepage&version=Banner&module=span-ab-top-region®ion=top-news&WT.nav=top-news

WASHINGTON — Airstrikes on towns in northern Iraq seized by Islamist militants began late Thursday in what Kurdish and Iraqi officials called the first stage of an American-led intervention to blunt the militants’ advance and provide emergency aid to tens of thousands of refugees.

Kurdish and Iraqi officials attributed the bombing campaign to American forces. But the Pentagon firmly denied that American forces had begun a bombing campaign. Pentagon officials said it was possible that allies of the United States, either the Iraqi or Turkish militaries, had conducted the bombing.

A Turkish official said the country’s air force had not conducted any operations. The official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said Turkey had been helping the Kurdish regional government in northern Iraq with humanitarian supplies. “There is no such thing,” he said, referring to airstrikes.

 Ok, wait.... I, generally speaking, work under the assumption, a first rule of sorts that I am not being heard, or just ignored.... Is that the wrong position to take here? Or should I think of my writing as the next big thing and expect respect from all other posters at all time or else? (what else I don't know)

I would never assume that anything I had to say would have any effect on anything in of this world... It's a f*#king climbing forum, for sh#t sake....And I'm not anywhere near a genius to be listened to... I'm not going to get hurt if nobody catches the joke that I through in to any of my posts....

Nothing says that I should have an effect on anything... and I have a leave no trace ethic to live up to.
Last time I checked, we don't have any way of trading in responses for things that can be used for anything....

I'm with Norton on his his take of Sketch.

Of course you do... fellow travelers.

Norton's last post is a bunch of bull sh#t. Today is a good example. I made a statement about Fox News, which came from Jingy's posts about Megyn Kelly. Norton claimed it was untrue, while trying to marginalize what he inferred was my point. I defended my statement, without saying anything derogatory towards him. And he goes in troll mode.

He's lying little turd.

But we can agree on that last part.

Norton. Ignore me. Please.

The revelation that Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services administrator Marilynn Tavenner did not retain her e-mails means that more than 20 witness in the Obama administration to lose or delete e-mails without notifying Congress, according to the top House investigator.

“The Obama administration has lost or destroyed e-mails for more than 20 witnesses, and in each case, the loss wasn’t disclosed to the National Archives or Congress for months or years, in violation of federal law,”
