Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ...

<quoted text>"On paper, the U.S. has one of the highest corporate tax rates in the world. But in practice, corporations pay far less. The Government Accountability Office (PDF) estimated the average tax burden at 25.2 percent, and some of the largest corporations, such as General Electric and Wells Fargo, pay no taxes at all. This is possible because the tax code is riddled with exceptions and loopholes, created at the behest of lobbyists and exploited by teams of tax experts, many of whom used to work for the IRS and the Treasury. With the help of Citizens for Tax Justice, The Daily Beast rounded up some of the most egregious corporate tax loopholes.
Deferral of Overseas Income
Multinational companies don’t have to pay U.S. income taxes on overseas profits until they transfer them back home. But in reality, companies just leave their profits in overseas tax havens, deferring taxes indefinitely. Not only that, an accounting scheme known as “transfer pricing” allows companies to move profits from the U.S. to offshore havens so they’re counted as overseas earnings. For example a pharmaceutical company could sell a drug patent to a subsidiary in the Cayman Islands for a nominal fee, then have the subsidiary charge the parent company huge licensing fees. The company can then deduct the licensing fees from its taxable income in the U.S. and send the profits to its foreign subsidiary, where taxes can be indefinitely deferred. Some 83 percent of top 100 publicly traded companies had tax-haven units in 2009, according to the GAO. General Electric, Google, Pfizer, and many other companies use this technique. The federal government loses an estimated (PDF)$100 billion a year through offshore tax abuses.
Deductions for Shipping Jobs Overseas
At first glance it doesn’t seem particularly egregious that corporations can deduct moving expenses, but that changes when the break is applied to companies moving operations overseas. President Obama proposed ending this exemption for companies moving overseas while giving a credit to companies moving back to the U.S."
There's more but I know you never honestly read a link or anything else you don't like...BTW, maybe you'd better not wait until you have an "ailment" to avoid the appearance of health care, or not.
Companies such as General Electric and Government Motors (both Obama cronies) pay no taxes because of huge tax loss carryovers.

Many would agree with closing these loopholes in exchange for lower rates, leveling the playing field.

Accepting your figures,$100 billion is chickenfeed compared to the Obama deficits and giveaways like Rainstorm Sandy.

Federal government standards that declare a person "obese" based on strict age/height/gender/weight tables are ridiculous, taking no account of muscular structure and overall physical fitness.
Many people would need to starve themselves and in fact ruin their bodies to get down to what the bureaucrats consider to be "normal" weight.
Does anyone really believe that a 6-ft male who weighs 180 lb is overweight?
Standards are written by AIDS victims.
You're stupid enough to think that height is the only determinant involved in figuring out ideal weight??

You seem intent on proving your ignorance.

Ever hear of search engines?? You need them.

Could prevent you from looking like such a moron!!

their very notion that more jobs will happen if we just increase

You should have stayed in school and learned something.

You've missed a great rally, DOW up over 9% for the year, which is only 2+ months old!!

Whoa folks, wait a minute here. I rarely log on to Topix anymore (too tedious), but I DID read a few pages of this forum.

I am a Topix old timer, having been a posting veteran since 2007. Let me clear you guys up on something: "WAXTURDS/WAXMAN" and "TINY-ERECTION" AKA(shinningelectr0n)are a bi-racial gay COUPLE that live together in CT. WAXTURDS/WAXMAN is anglo (but pathetically tries really hard to sound urban & tough), while "TINYERECTION"/ "TINY E" (the SOCIOPATHIC-PSYCHO -RACIST) is African American.
They have been notorious trolls on the gay sites for a long time, and it was in the earlier days of Topix (when they had actual profiles w/pics) that they outed themselves. They usually get on Topix at the same time sharing their ignorance at the same time. Given as they look like a cross between barnyard hogs and Ooompa Loompas from Willie Wonka, they were usually laughed out of the forum (or just ignored).

I am really finding it hard to believe some are legitimately debating with these intellectual lightweight, ID CHANGING, ID STEALING KNUCKLE DRAGGING, CROSS DRESSING TOPIX TROLL CLOSET CASES.

Still LMFAO...CROSS DRESSING CLOSET CASES...Ooompa Loompas from Willie Wonka...
