I really get tired of these morons claiming that "United States has THE highest corporate tax rate in the developed world." It's so misleading.
The bottom line is....despite our top marginal corporate tax rate of 35 percent the "effective corporate income tax rate in the U.S., a measure of the taxes a company pays as a percentage of its profit, averaged 27.7 percent from 2006 to 2009. That's very close to the average rate of countries in the Organization For Economic Cooperation during the same period -- 27.2 percent once weighted by GDP -- according to the EPI.
If these loons want a lower corporate tax rate, then they must be willing to do away with the tax credits, loop holes and "legitimate" write-offs used by corporations to reduce their tax liability. Simple as that....

OK, provided that all individual tax credits and loopholes are also eliminated.

<quoted text>Zimmerman's a prove liar who had numerous anger issues. He said the screaming didn't sound like him; then he thought better of it. Why did the screaming stop when Trayvon was shot through the heart from extremely close range? Wouldn't Georgie Pudgy still be in need of help to call and ambulance, give CPR, tend to his own "massive" injuries. You believe him because he's whiter and and liar so you can obviously identify with the loser. BTW, did you know he was estranged from the family because he was a child molester?
You'd have to provide proof he said such a thing. Because I and the jury and everyone who even tried to follow this trial never heard it. Not once.

Only liberals ignored the trial and the evidence and got their daily talking points from moveon.org and dailykos.com .

Perhaps the screaming stopped once a shot was heard because the victim on the ground was no longer being beaten.

How easily manipulated are you liberals anyway?

That's ridiculous. The "fight or flight" instinct happens in just seconds. Trayvon had 4 minutes to think about confronting Zimmmerman. He could have "flit" to where his father was staying in just 20 seconds long after he first made eye contact with Zimmmerman on the phone and after he first ran off.
So why didn't he just keep running?
Because the liberal media told you not to think about that. That's why.
I'm sure you told your mythical daughter, if confronted by a pervy-looking 206 pound man pursuing her in a black-out window van and then on foot, to run right home bringing the stalker to where only a twelve-year-old was waiting for his candy and making sure he knew where you lived? You clearly seem to think that because Trayvon was black, he couldn't have been scared of a menacing white man and tried to hide until Pudgy found him?(BTW, Greta is being "let go" by Faux in favor of some younger blonde of very little brain--she might be no longer able to "flit" as quickly as she contends, even after going through all that plastic surgery.)

I just hate it when I have to gove a history lesson to someone who insists on opening their ignorant mouth during a discussion.
You forgot to mention the war the Arabs started with us. Wars have a cost.
You also forgot to mention the Republicans increased the total debt only 3.5 trillion dollars while fighting this war the Arabs started.
You also forgot to mention the Republicans turned over to the Democrats all the purse strings of government with a 0.16 (that's zero point one six) trillion dollar deficit DURING A WAR.
You also forgot to mention the economic collapse caused by the Democrats Marxist CRA program that collapsed our economy after two years of oversight by Democrats.
You also forgot to mention that the Democrats increased the debt from 8.5 trillion to 17 trillion dollars.
You also forgot to mention that, with these Democrats today we have to borrow about one and a half trillion dollars every goddam year just for the day-to-day existence of the government.
An idiot can tell you that government will collapse.
So, since it's the plan of the Democrats to collapse the government, what's the next part of the Demcorats' plan?
lol! Son, CRA was capitalistic.

If you claim to know your history, I expect you to know it. Making a claima like your CRA crap shows you're ignorant or uninformed you are.

In either case, it doesn't make you look intelligent... or you're a liar... or both!

Zimmerman would have made a lousy cop.

The police knew that. He calls in a burglar at 7pm?

Any cop knows a burglar is not doing crime at 7 pm.

In a residential area.

Come on!

Kids walking around at 7 pm. All over my neighborhood!

Everywhere I have ever lived.

Kids walk up to knock on a friends bedroom window? Yes!

Kids go into a friends back yard? Yes!

7 pm

7 pm

Not 2 am, not 10 pm, not 12 midnight.....

7 pm.

Zimmerman is stupid. Wrong. A killer. Needs to be locked up.

Racial profiling at 7 pm!!

Imagine that!

7 pm.

I have never jumped on top of someone after I knocked them to the ground. I don't attack defenseless people. If they choose to stand up, the fight continues.
If I were the type of coward to do that, then, yes, they would have the right to shoot me.
You get right to the core of the matter here. Your culture has no integrity or honor or decency or principle. You can bet we will fight against that type of hyenous behavior.
That's also related to why your culture chooses to be brothers with the Arabs what make videos of cutting off Americans bound like animals heads with a butcher knife.
Because you Democrats insist on drawing lines along race boundaries, and endorse uncivilized behavior, I don't see how a civil war can be avoided.
Nice move, dumbass.
You claim to be military right son?

Besides, even police jump on 'defenseless' people if they don't follow lawful orders.

You were saying...??? http://www.usgovernmentspending.com/
Let's go over US history again:
In 2003 the Democrats supported the war in Iraq in exchange for the Republicans giving them no effective oversight of their Marxist CRA program. All necessary legislation was put in place then.
Compounding this idiocy, the Democrats took over all oversight of the financial institutions that caused the economic collapse in January, 2007, coincident with the year the effect of the Democrats' Marxist subprime housing mortgage underwriting program began to have negative effects on the economy.
After two years of oversight by Democrats, the Democrats' Marxist subprime housing loan program collapsed our economy.
Prior to the Democrats' Marxist subprime loan program, the world invested in US real estate mortgage industry because it was a foregone conclusion that... you may need to write this down... history proved that Americans always paid their mortgages.
The Democrats changed that perception of America.

If you can't get anything done, try and change the measure of success:
House Speaker John Boehner says Congress "ought to be judged on how many laws we repeal."
The Ohio Republican makes the comments on an interview aired Sunday on CBS "Face the Nation." He was responding to a question about how little Congress is doing these days.
Boehner says Congress "should not be judged by how many new laws we create."
After 39 failed attempts (!) to repeal Obamacare, it looks like Boehner sucks at repealing laws too.
Maybe his metric for success should be "most unpopular Congress ever," because if that's the measure, he'd be an unqualified success.
Boehner may be replaced by the Teabaggers?

You and leosnana act like a few republicans invented pelvic exams.

If you've ever had a Pap smear or have ever been pregnant, you know your private parts are no longer private.

If you want to choose to abort a baby that's growing inside you and even if a transvaginal ultrasound was used to help the woman make an informed decision, what's the big damn deal?

What's wrong with you two? There wasn't any mention of this kind of procedure in the Wisconsin bill anyway - much less that it would be forced on anyone.

Really. What's wrong with you two?

MSNBC host Joe Scarborough fired back Monday at FOX News' Sean Hannity's remark last week in which he asked whether President Barack Obama and Trayvon Martin are similar because they both "smoked pot, did a little blow."

"It seems we keep hearing that Trayvon had it coming because he had pot in his system," Scarborough said on his show,'Morning Joe.' "I keep hearing this from people like Sean Hannity and others on the right. Really? Is that the new standard? Would we like to go across college campuses in America and tell all white boys that if they have marijuana in their system then they are fair game?"

You're not just a liar, Batty, you're a stupid liar. "When lead detective for the Sanford, Fla. police department Chris Serino played the recording for Zimmerman during questioning, Zimmerman said, "That doesn't even sound like me," Serino told jurors Monday.

Mark O'Mara, lead attorney for the defense then asked Serino if he thought Zimmerman was in denial.
