Why didn't they become foreign corporations when their foreign profits were taxed in the year they were earned?
Why are they still here regardless. According to you, they would jump ship to save a few % in corporation taxes.
So why are they still here?
No need to leave to become a foreign corporation.

Many foreign corporations do a substantial portion of their business in the US, but pay US taxes only on that portion of their business.

LOL There has been six years now ,under Obama, of a strong Wall Street comeback and a resurgent U S economy(we're doing better in our recovery than the Europeans because Obama resisted adopting the Euros recovery-killing austerity measures.)Bettie Lou really needs to get out more from her cave.:-D
Obama has only been in office 4-1/2 years. Explains your confusion.

We're going downhill since the Feds aren't propping up the global economy. Check the Dow.

Last I checked cons don't give any of those unless there's an (R) next to the name.
So you admit that when you criticized Betty Lou for saying something negative about a Dem candidate and tried to play choir boy that you were being a hypocrite.

I already knew this. That was the point of my post.

Thanks for the conformation.

Now they want to add a free pass to all those applying from countries that are suffering from "global warming."
These loony left wingers crack me up (global warming should be much worse by now)

"“This study suggests that the cause of the stagnation in global warming in the mid 20th century was the atmospheric nuclear explosions detonated between 1945 and 1980. The estimated GST drop due to fine dust from the actual atmospheric nuclear explosions based on the published simulation results by other researchers (a single column model and Atmosphere-Ocean General Circulation Model) has served to explain the stagnation in global warming."

And Obama wants to reduce the number of nukes we have. He is sitting on the solution to global warming. Detonate some nukes in the atmosphere!!

I think 9/11 was Not George Bush fault, in retrospect signs were there but mistakes were made.
Bush was no a racist and did get prescription drug for Medicare.
I am not against all republican all the time.
It would seems that you find nothing positive about President Obama and Democrats.
Are you serious? Bush had to do something for prescription drugs, the cost was out of control. No one but the well off could afford to pay that much for their meds.

As for 9/11, please, the man was business partners with the same known terrorist that happened to successfully pull off the most un sophisticated, highly predictable terrorist attack on American soil. I say predictable because, everyone in the loop saw it coming. Bush was warned by Clinton's sect of defense, told about the suspicious movements of the eventual hijackers by the FBI & CIA & he ordered both agencies to stand down. On the day of 9/11 Bush sr & the bin laden family were together & Bush Jr eventually flew them out of the country when no one else in the country was able to fly. He was caught lying about seeing building 1 falling when he was in that elementary school. Too stupid to know there was only 1 video of the plane hitting building 1& it wasn't recovered & aired until 12 hours later. There was no live feeds of building 1.

Toy don't believe he's a racist? All you have to do us look at hurricane Katrina to prove that theory wrong. Everything surrounding it reeks of racism!

Yep, handing provate insurers 30 million new clients is going to kill them.
Handing Hospitals & Doctors 30 million PAYING customers is a disaster.
Jane is dumber than the idiot who wrote the copy she stole.
and here's where you fail...

Who's paying the Hospitals? The insurance companies. Do the insurance companies charge their members what it costs for one person to visit the hospital? No. the depend on more healthy people to pay for the less sick people. Will healthy people make more trips to the hospital/doctor if it doesn't cost them anything? yes. There ain't enough money.

No son, I'm not.

But it would appear your campaigning is based on 'proving' the 'other guy' is worse than 'your guy.'

The problem is, you have NO ONE there.

Obviously, your problem is you can't find someone who can do a better job.

[sigh] same story no matter.

Statement of Administration Policy: H.R. 1461 - Federal Housing Finance Reform Act of 2005

The Administration strongly believes that the housing GSEs should be focused on their core housing mission, particularly with respect to low-income Americans and first-time homebuyers. Instead, provisions of H.R. 1461 that expand mortgage purchasing authority would lessen the housing GSEs' commitment to low-income homebuyers.

that would be the one finger salute.

Yes, you know, you write a check at a store, they punch your drivers license number into the register, then get a message saying yea or nay? Back then, they didn't have letters on the register, so they could only punch in numbers. Maybe it will make sense to you after a couple more rocky mountain piss waters.

Yep, thanks to Obama all our agencies are out of control.
