The US corporate tax rate is the highest in the world. Reduce the rate or suffer the consequences.
By the way, what do you think would happen if you decided to tax US corporations on foreign-made profits?
Since he will never answer I will. They won't be US corporations very long.

Taliban Talks Could Depend on Detainees
These five prisoners at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, could be the key to whether the negotiations the United States has long sought with the Taliban are a success, or even take place. A Taliban spokesman in Qatar said Thursday that exchanging them for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, an American prisoner of war who has been held by militants since 2009, would be a way to “build bridges of confidence” to start broader peace talks.

Impossible to negotiate with the Taliban.

When the US leaves Afghanistan, the Taliban will massacre everybody associated with the government.

As for Afghan women, back to the Stone Age.

The Heat Delivers a Moment to Remember
The jump shot from LeBron James went into the net with 27.9 seconds left and, as soon as it did, he pumped his fist with a winner's look, a champion's look, as the noise you'd only heard once before shook AmericanAirlines Arena.
San Antonio's season was finally fading, and the Heat's star was rising, again, in this 95-88 win in Game 7 of the NBA Finals.
They won with LeBron scoring 37 points. They won with Dwyane Wade answering questions with 23 points. They won with Shane Battier making six 3-point shots — as many shots as he'd made in the previous six Finals games.
They won against a San Antonio team full of deserving Hall of Famers, who kept matching the Heat shot for shot Thursday night, moment for moment, until LeBron's jumper gave a four-point cushion.
They won.
Nobody cares.

Ayers is allowed to act like a terrorist if he doesn't intend anyone to get hurt?
Ayers can call Obama a war criminal and it is alright with you because it is his opinion?
Hmmm, what is your fascination with this man?
Ayers was charged with a crime. The charges were dropped due to illegal evidence gathering. So he was not allowed.

Setting a bomb is different than voicing an opinion. I realize that concept is way above your pay grade.

I have no fasciation. I only talk about him because you dumbass right whiners keep lying about him & I have to correct you.

Currently the foreign made profits are taxed in the countries where they were made. Then the US corporations owe the US the difference in the foreign rate & the US rate.
My God Galt, you didn't know this?
We used to get this tax in the year these profits were made.
This was changed to when the profits were repatriated.
This encourages corps to not bring home their overseas profits & instead invest then overseas.
Mitt Romney's plan would just make all foreign made profits tax free which would create an exodus of US jobs going overseas.
What is the world are you mumbling about?

Republican-Heavy Counties Eat Up Most Food-Stamp Growth
http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2012-11-05/repu...
i'll bet most of those counties are all white.
I'll bet you are wrong--look at Texas--all those illegals. Law breakers getting food stamps. Why?
And then Gwinnet county in GA--Today, Gwinnett has large populations of blacks, Hispanics and (perhaps most surprisingly) Asians--you know what happens when these populations take over the area? don't act stupid. Gwinnett County: 91 percent white in 1990; 44 percent white today.
So are illegals counted if they are illegal? just asking.

Silly,

Dave has refused repeatedly to answer the question of what legislation did the Dems pass to reform Fannie and Freddie prior to the Housing Bubble Burst.

It was well known that their was a problem for almost a decade. So put up Sonic, name ONE dem who voted for reform of Freddie and Fannie when these laws were purposed.

Apparently, theirs was one of the most stable economies in the world last year.
They are rioting because they were so lucky to get the Olympics--and now they are so lucky to be paying out of their own pocket for the Olympics. Thank G-d the O'bama failed in his attempt to bring the Olympics to Chicago or the same would be happening there.

Are you saying you are in favor of the United States to get involved in a civil war in Syria? There is no such thing as a quick end to suffering; what would you suggest? Bombing them to smithereens? There are over a half million refugees in Lebanon from Syria; let the other Arab nations feed them. Russia, Iran and China are backing the President. Let them figure it out.
I didn't say that. You did.

It just seems the civilized world is watching these horrors unfold and wringing their hands.

Same in Rwanda and Darfur. I don't understand why something more can't be done by the collective global community when these kinds of atrocities occur. I wish someone were smart enough to know.

That's what I said.

Even the atrocities commited in the gulags in North Korea, the civilized world looks the other way without even so much as shining a continual spotlight on it and condemning it.

We can't even get our heads around the human atrocities taking place in North Korea. Political and cultural demographics is a good excuse, but the civilized world is just too disinterested to care.

That bothers me greatly.

I flipped over for about 5 minutes last night. In that 5 minutes I saw three double dribbles, five walks, and over a dozen fouls. None were called. It's a bogus game. A damn shame. It was once a beautiful sport to watch.
