That's not going to happen.
Giant corporations saying taxes should be lower? Mega polluters saying they don't need no stinkin' regulations on their stinky businesses? Republicans just taking all of that at face value and giving them whatever they want?

Legislate the living crap out of them until they behave like good citizens. Their not going to do it on their own.

There are massive advantages to doing business in the US, these companies are just taking advantage of every possible inch of ground they can get their grubby fingers on. It's time we took some of that ground back. This is the CITIZENS society, not the corporations.

What is truly amazing is that Congress recently had a chance to at least put a stop to tax deductions corporations can claim for their "moving expenses" when they leave the country. The fine, upstanding Repuglicans put a stop to that legislation. Talk about salt in the wounds.

Well, let's see, that "left wing crap" showed that Senator Inhofe is just another right wing loon, and Silverfox was holding him up to be a credible source of information. This article about Inhofe is factual which is why YOU cannot refute it.
It is well known what you think of Daily Kos, unfortunately for you most of what post is based news articles with some opinion thrown in, much like what is posted here. We know why you object to my postings, you can't refute any of it, so what do you do...
You deflect, and rant and rave about some mythical socialist agenda, the specifics of whicj=h you could not atriculate to save your life.

Burger King is getting whopped over its plan to avoid U.S. taxes by fleeing to Canada.

People flooded the fast-food chain’s Facebook page on Monday with threats of a boycott after the company announced talks to merge with Canadian coffee and doughnut chain Tim Hortons. The combined company would be headquartered in Canada.

Burger King is just the latest American company to attempt a so-called tax inversion -- where a bigger U.S. company buys a smaller foreign firm in a country with a lower tax rate, renounces its U.S. corporate citizenship and then reincorporates in the other nation. Politicians and pundits have said the moves amount to little more than unpatriotic ploys to avoid paying taxes.

I say fine, Burger King. Shut down your US stores and enjoy Canada, eh?

A US Republican Senate Nominee, Allen Weh of New Mexico, is running images of James Foley's execution in his campaign ads. The National Republican Senatorial Committee is backing Weh.

Kelley Foley released this statement prior to the ad being run " "Please honor James Foley and respect my family’s privacy, "Don't watch the video. Don't share it. That's not how life should be."

Way to stay classy Republicans.

By now, the tendency of news shows to frame seemingly inflammatory suggestions in the form of a question is well-known. Jon Stewart memorably riffed on what he called the "Cavuto," named after the Fox News anchor's love of the tactic.

Monday's "Fox & Friends" featured a doozy of a Cavuto in a discussion about the media coverage death of Michael Brown:

"Is 'Unarmed Teen' Description Misleading?" Fox News contributor Linda Chavez was the one asking this question.

There's a very easy answer.

Michael Brown was a teenager. He was unarmed. Therefore, describing him as an "unarmed teen" is the definition of "factual."

Where have you been, the idiot fringe has done nothing for years but complain about Obama doing things without the consent of congress. Doesn't matter that congress does nothing or that what Obama has done is completely within the powers granted to the President. You people do NOTHING but bitch and moan. Get YOUR people to do what they get paid to do in Congress, and holding hearings on every other Tuesday for purely political reasons is NOT what they are paid to do. They are paid to govern, not consider every move they make or don't make based on what the polling number in their districts will say. The job is not to run for political office on a full time basis the job is to govern and they haven't done that since the Tea Party sprung up from the feces that is politics. You bring the phrase clueless and uneducated to new highs.

Well well well..........Ole Buffet the Obama lover..........


" Burger King on Tuesday confirmed plans to acquire Ontario-based Tim Hortons for about $11 billion—creating a new company to be based in Canada with combined sales of $23 billion.

Berkshire Hathaway Chairman and CEO Warren Buffett is helping to fund the deal by committing $3 billion of preferred equity financing. The news release on the deal did not disclose the terms for Berkshire, which is only a financing source and will not have any participation in the management and operation of the business."

And wasn't it just yesterday that "oh my" was holding up Berskshire Hathaway as the contrast to Bain Capital…

"Yep, folks who play with BIG finance play fast and loose with economies on a very large scale and on a much smaller scale, perhaps you could tell us the success rate of Berkshires Hathaway or any of the other endeavors of George Soros, since you've admitted that Bain did fail and that failure hurt folks."

I decided to take another look at the above glittering jewel of ignorance and found this little piece of "wisdom":

"As for corporations that actually matter its our markets, our transportation system and our system of government that made them. "

Well, hot damn, I didn't realize that all it took to create a multimillion dollar business that employs thousands of people were "our markets, our transportation system and our system of government."
Where do I get in line to get one?

You responded with:
"Where have you been, the idiot fringe has done nothing for years but complain about Obama doing things without the consent of congress."

Okay, thanks for confirming what I wrote, but whatever.

Next, "congress does nothing". Well let's see, the current Congress has passed over 570 bills and joint resolutions, 142 of which have been signed into law by Obama. That leaves over 300 sitting in the Senate awaiting action, some are in committee but most are being held up because Harry Reid won't allow them to come to the floor. Most are noncontroversial, most have bipartisan support and 55 were Democrat sponsored. So, just who again is "do nothing"?

And to use just one example, hearings to uncover the ILLEGAL and POLITICAL tactics used by the IRS to shut up conservative organizations ARE part of the job of legislators in order to protect the First Amendment rights that yes, even conservatives, are allowed to have.
