They don't pay taxes; they collect the sales tax and are allowed to keep it, they don't pay property taxes either. In addition, you are paying for their employees to have universal healthcare.
Not to mention the things you buy there, pink slime burgers and balogna logs are killing you.
Failure to remit sales taxes collected is a criminal offense and should be reported.

As for property taxes, many communities offer short-term tax incentives to attract new employers and develop vacant land.

Thank goodness because their only purpose no longer has any purpose except to fund the Democrats and suck money out of taxpayers.
Maybe Obamacare will get rid of unions altogether...sort of like pouring salt on leeches.
We have laws in place that protect all workers now.
Union "Cadillac" plans are exempt from Obamacare.

Only the working peasants get screwed by having their benefits reduced.

Hoarding? No. My philosophy is "simplify".

I actually am blessed to have a family, my daughter and my husband, even though both of my parents are now dead.

So why would you be so heartless as to bring up my parents and deny me retirement after working all my adult life?

Sometimes you really can be mean-spirited, leosnana.

That's ok. After all, you need to make things up to fit your agenda after all!
Sure I did. You said Bush toured the world his last year. So this must be O'bama's last year according to you. Like I said we can only pray it is O'bama's Sotoreo's last year.

Totally agree! Buy produce at local growers stands. Tomatoes are .79 a pound; at Publix, they're $1.95 a pound. Same tomatoes.
People are just lazy and pay. The local store doesn't get to keep the sales tax, that's pure profit on top of everything else.
Costco works with a 15% markup across the board, has the highest paid employees, with benefits and only a 5% turnover rate. Their philosophy is; a happy employee increases sales.
Your local growers stand pays none of the following:

Minimum wage
Union wages
Social Security
Unemployment compensation
Medical insurance
Liability insurance
Rent
Utilities
Property taxes
Income tax
Sales tax
Etc, etc, etc

If Publix could do the same, then their costs would be much lower.

Yeah, sure. Colin Small, a Republican operative, was arrested in Virginia for dumping voter registration forms that weren't Republican in a dumpster.
www.examiner.com/.../republican-operatives-ca... ...
Also former Republican Party of Florida Chairman Jim Greer admitted that Republicans were actively trying to suppress Democratic voters.
www.examiner.com/.../republican-operatives-ca... ...
And there's also Nathan Sproul another Republican operative investigated in Florida and several other states for voter registration fraud.
In 33 Republican run states there were blatant attempts at voter suppression but it backfired on them because minorities went to the polls in record numbers even if it meant standing in line for hours on end.
So let's see some evidence that any of the groups you mentioned committed voter or registration fraud.
You're an idiot!
This should make you as happy as a pig eatin' sh it:

It's really simple if you don't inject your personal opinion, son.
That's what's causing all your trouble with comprehension.
Sorry, but your post was a direct response to DBWriter saying communist Democrats and RINO Democrats make up the Democratic Party now.

But spin it all you want to.

Considering George W Bush has a better approval rating than Barack Obama these days, I'd be careful about putting your foot in your mouth so quickly.

Republicans are starting to look pretty good to a lot of people - including students and independents - where Obama has lost most of his support.

what is it with you conservatives? every time Obama does what you want you end up on the other side of the issue.
McCain and Graham are Obama Quislings.

Now Putin is saying that Syria not using chemical weapons. I hope President Obama stays out of it completely. Let them kill each other, either way, how could Assad remain in power?
There is no proof that either side did or did not use "chemical weapons."

Besides, what is a "chemical weapon"? Tear gas?

Who cares?

This is just to you so everyone can ignore it.
When I went to change my password to sign back in on topix, I was asked to disclose personal information for Microsoft users to get a new password in my email.
Halfway through, I pictured a liberal copying down all that personal information and exited out.
Sad that we have so much distrust these days but it really bothered me giving out such personal information on the internet.
Am I being paranoid? Or is it safe to disclose my last name and my exact location as a "Microsoft user" to get a new topix password?
That is odd. My hometown is not anywhere near where I am now. As for your last name that is none of there business. But that is Microsoft and not Topix. Perhaps there is another sign on that is for Topix only. I've never had that happen to me.
