lily is the one who is really obsessed with Carol. lily posts as several people because she is too embarrassed to post as herself and hurl the venom and harassment she does as "lily".
lily has the typical juvenile delinquent/arrested brain & maturity development issue most liberals have.

You sheep crack me up
"...Baucus’ Finance Committee passed a bill in August extending 50 expiring deductions and credits for favored industries. At Obama’s insistence, the Baucus bill was cut and pasted word for word into the cliff legislation.General Electric may have been the biggest winner from the cliff deal. GE makes more wind turbines than any other U.S. company, and it lobbied hard for extension of the wind production tax credit. But more important for the multinational conglomerate was an arcane-sounding provision that became Section 222 of Baucus’ bill and then Section 322 of the cliff bill:“Extension of subpart F exception for active financing income.”In short, this provision allows multinationals to move profits to offshore financial subsidiaries and thus avoid paying U.S. corporate income taxes. This is a windfall for GE: The exception played a central role in GE paying $0 in U.S. corporate income tax in 2011 when it made $5.1 billion in U.S. profits."
So you are claiming there is no loophole for overseas profits?

The loophole you speak about should also be eliminated. That loophole put in place originally by Republicans.

"guilt for the subprime mortgage financial crisis lies both with the lenders who knowingly put borrowers into booby trapped mortgages and the management of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac for making a market for such booby trapped mortgages thus giving the lenders the incentive for writing them."
Show me San Jose State is incorrect
Define a "booby trapped mortgage."

If dumbass Dave had his way and foreign profits were taxed at exorbitant US tax rates, what would prevent General Electric corporate structure from leaving the US and locating in a low-tax country?

Would that make dumbass Dave happy?

The purpose of such mortgages is to allow people to qualify based on anticipation of future earnings increases. Galt does not approve of such financing arrangements, preferring conventional fixed rate mortgages with 20% down payments. However, this would exclude disproportionate shares of minorities from home ownership.

The "booby trap" characterization is unfair, intended for media hype. Borrowers are informed of the terms, both verbally and in writing, when they apply for the mortgage. If they choose to ignore the potential problem, or are too stupid to understand, then nothing can help them.

Intelligent people actually read every document associated with a home purchase in its entirety and should have the documents reviewed by an attorney.

You actually think GE would cease to be a US company?

Why haven't they left already?

Why does 'God' allow it to go on in the first place?

If 'God' is putting it on replay, it must be so that 'God' can watch it, and do nothing to stop it, again, and again, and again.
