Where were these whiners when the list of Obama administration figures were exposed to be tax cheats and evaders? Yet to hear a peep of criticism over that! But when a corporation legally skirts the tax laws they throw a fit and demand "heads will roll!!!". Silliness.<quoted text>Probably?? In other words, you are spouting off, yet again, on a subject you know exactly nothing about. They did not break the law, the law needs to be changed. Lobby your Democrat congressman and Senators and see if they can get off their duffs long enough to do something to earn their outrageous wage they take from us taxpayers.

Teabagger (n) tee-bag-er
one who has a niave and jaded view of fiscal policy,taxation and government. Also a term of the same name which means placing of one's testicles on friend's forehead for sexual arousal. The teabaggers themselves have wrongly associated the term with the Boston Tea Party, whose participants were not brain dead hicks or ignorant bigots like the Teabaggers of today. The BTP participants were not protesting taxes, they were protesting paying taxes without receiving fair representation for the money they paid in taxes.
Go ahead and laugh Dr. Dread. A picture of you and your cousin Really appears in conjunction with the above definition in the dictionary.
Dread and Really are oblivious of corporations that are making a mockery of the U.S. tax code, STEALING BILLIONS from the American. people. At the same time they are bitching about budget deficits and the debt. All they can say is, "well, these corporations aren't breaking the law, so where's the beef?"

Your list of tax cheats & evaders came off some right wing rag but which anyone with any common sense long ago concluded the usual 10% fact and 90% b.s. Its just plain misleading as hell and doesn't merit any attention.
Here a little lesson in IRS 101 for you dip shits who want to make your case that its just progressives who are tax evaders and cheats.
Whenever the IRS uses terminology such as an individual or an entity "owes back taxes" it almost NEVER means failure to file or remit payment or criminal wrongdoing. At any stage of an audit where the IRS claims a person or entity didn't pay enough/can't sufficiently substantiate a deduction/etc.(and there are a hundred other reasons), the phrase "owe back taxes" simply means until the individual/entity proves otherwise (and they agree) or until such time that an agreement is made with the agency to pay what is agreed; AND that means even within the confines of a payment plan OR even when the individual/entity is paying as agreed.
So once again, your b.s. is just that b.s. and another example of twisting the numbers by the right for political purposes.
Have to wonder how many of those 'cheaters and evaders' are themselves t-baggers. Never mind I already know the answer.
Nice try Dr. Dread.
Going after corporate thieves and cheats(including ferreting out tax exempt abuses by orgs claiming 501(C)3 and 4) should be and WILL be the IRSs #1 enforcement priority. And it WILL be when the T/GOP is 'exposed' as the party most against that happening.

I'll take Obama's own admission over some Topix troll, thanks.

And your stupidity and juvenile actions grow by leaps and bounds. You are nothing more than a cowardly buffoon. Now, go back to Mommy's and let her rub your head and calm you down little man.

All you can really do with trolls like that is to prove their statements wrong by providing facts, such as Obama's own words on tape regarding his own cabinet members' tax problems, that disprove the spoon-fed garbage they obediently parrot day after day and give credence to what conservatives are saying. You're not going change an idiot's mind, that's for sure. Nor are you going to do any good just swapping insults, fun as that is to do sometimes, with someone who's clearly just here to seek the attention they don't get in real life. But you can show others what fools they are.
If troll boy can't provide facts that prove Apple committed a crime he has no grounds to say conservatives have the facts wrong. Either prove Apple committed a crime, or this entire anti-corporate rant thread is nothing but another pile of hypocrisy considering not a peep was heard from the same whiners when Obama's own cabinet members were proven to have evaded paying their own taxes.
I think we can ALL agree the current tax laws need overhauled. No one here that I've seen is saying Apple was ethically right in outsmarting the tax laws. But instead of demonizing Apple for doing nothing illegal, these whiny babies should take their tears to the person they elected TWICE, who has done nothing to address this problem.
