Most people know by now (except TSF), that the United States has the highest corporate tax rate in the world. At 39.1 percent, it sits 14 percentage points higher than the OECD average."However, many will point to all the “loopholes” that narrow the corporate tax base and say:“sure, we have the highest statutory rate, but no company pays that!” The implication is of course that U.S. corporations don’t pay a high tax rate compared internationally.

Contrary to this claim, studies show that not only does the United States have the highest statutory rate, but one of the highest effective tax rates. Our 2011 study on effective corporate tax rates shows this. It reviews a number of recent studies and concludes that the average effective rate is around 27 percent, while the average around the world is 20 percent.

Adding to these studies, PricewaterhouseCoopers released a new report that also finds the United States has one of the highest effective corporate tax rates in the world.

Looking at six different industries (Automotive, Aerospace and Defense, Chemicals, Engineering and Construction, Industrial Manufacturing and Metals, and Transportation and Logistics), the study found that U.S. corporations face an average effective corporate tax rate of 30.9 percent in 2012. The only country whose corporations face a higher effective tax rate in the study was Japan at 36.7 percent. The lowest effective tax rates were in the United Kingdom and Hong Kong which had ETR of 16.7 percent and 16.5 percent, respectively. The average effective tax rate in the study was 28.3 percent in 2012.

According to Ben's reasoning, I must be a teacher because I would not let him get by with implicating all teachers with the actions of less than 7 one hundredth's of one percent of their group.
I have presented proof that well over an entire one percent of
republican congressmen are child molester perverts. According to Ben's logic (certainly not logical), that makes all republican congressmen child molesting perverts 14 times worse than any teacher. Since Ben defends them , Ben must be a congressman.
Now Ben and I and anyone with any sense at all understand all that to be faulty reasoning. So Ben is dealing off the bottom of the deck in attempting to implicate all schools and all teachers with his silly stastically insignificant anecdotal reports of misconduct.
Show a post where I defended a Congressman "pervert". I would never defend Weiner. Disgusting how he showed his weiner on the net while his wife was sucking up to the Clintons.

So, what do we do? Write them letters asking them to come and vote Democrat? This country has always had an immigration policy. The company makes the decision who to hire and fire, not the government. Do you think American business' know they can hire immigrants for less money and stick it up the ass of the American worker? Who is to fault? The greedy business owners who hire cheap labor. Fine the hell out of some of these white shirt business' ownerswho hire illegally and throw their ass in jail for the maximum sentence, and you just might see some changes.
our immigration policy took a huge turn for the worse with the 1965 immigration act...our govt actively promotes this garbage along with corporations...NAFTA and CAFTA are also a battering ram for mass migration. These treaties not only were about free flow of goods without tariffs, but free flow of people as well. Immigration isn't even the issue; its massive flows of people...when in history has it ever been beneficial to a country to allow huge groups into its borders? You're right. Businesses push this shit too because they bow down to the almighty fuckin dolla bill...

Republican defeats democrat Alex Sink in Florida special election seen as a litmus test for Obamacare. Bill Clinton campaigned for Alex Sink, but she lost in a relatively close vote.

Calm down before you blow a blood vessel. I like talking with TSF, because if he can't make me mad, the rest of the liberal idiots don't have a chance.:).

Alex Sink outspent the republican Jolly 3 to 1. Although the seat has been held by a republican for some years, the district went for Obama in 2008 ands 2012. District is almost evenly divided between democrats and republicans, with a large independent block of 21%.

Another great movie you should watch is Brokeback Mountain which is by far my favorite romantic flick of all time.I've watched it over 50 times and it feels like the first time every time I watch it.

“Immigration reform is important in our country ... for obvious reasons, because we have a lot of employers over in the beaches who rely upon workers who, especially in this high-growth environment, where are you going to get people to work to clean our hotel rooms or do our landscaping?” she said on the campaign trail.“We don’t need to put our employers in a position of hiring undocumented and illegal workers.” Finally, an honest Democrat!!!! Indorsed by Polosi AND Clinton. At least she was honest to say how she felt in a "high" Latino part of the country! They for sure need maids and lawn mowers in FL. Is this the start of the fall. BTW, if you need a maid or lawn guy just call a Democrat. You just can't make this up!!! LMAO, LMAO!!!!!!!!!!

The idiots on both sides can chase all the rabbits they want to chase. I have always been pretty much immune to social pressure from idiots.

Still not completely honest. There are plenty of US citizens willing to clean motel rooms and do landscaping. The REAL reason for the attractiveness of illegals is that you do not have to pay in social security on them. Then there is the workers compensation insurance payments which can be ignored. Then you can pretty much treat them dishonestly because being illegal makes them afraid to go to authorities. That makes illegals financially more attractive. I remember a case in Lenoir some yeas ago where a contractor had cheated illegals by not even paying them what he owed. They killed him. Poetic justice.

"Still not completely honest." You need to tell it to EX-CANDIDATE Sink. As well as, her supporters Pelosi and Clinton. They seem to have no problem cheating people out of social security. I'm going to have a ball with the defeat of the first of many to come. The Lenoir contractor must have been a Democrat.

This was an election neither side could loss. Had the democrats won, they would have portrayed it as a victory for Obamacare. Quite the opposite. However, I'm not inclined to put much store in this election, either way.

I am not sure of the political affiliation of the deceased contractor. Like some other Caldwell contractors, he probably had a long and well deserved reputation for flim flaming the public and subs. He got to keep their money but I bet he isn't able to use the money to buy even ice water now.
