I think it would be funny if someone hacked into the computer that sends out welfare checks and EBt.Stop them for 3 months and watch the crime rate increase by 100%.The government pays the animals to not cause a problem by feeding them , and give them a house to stay

It would also be real funny if someone hacked into the computer system that gives out all of the corporate welfare. Watch all the CEOs cause a problem by not feeding them and taking their subsidies and tax breaks away. That would be real funny.

Let's take all tax breaks away, from every entity; corporate, individual, religious, non-profit, etc....Also, let's take all subsidies away from every entity as well; fair enough?

Which, specifically, subsidies and tax breaks are you referencing? Tax breaks that are legal and available to all?

Oh, tax breaks ONLY for the evil rich?

The FairTax would take care of the first part, there would be no tax returns (at least at the federal level, take a bit of time for the states and local entities to "catch up".

True story: I recently got into an argument/discussion with someone about the benefits of the FairTax proposal. He was against it because he would lose his mortgage interest deduction, even though he owes (I think) 6 more monthly mortgage payments, so (1) the interest "benefit" is quite minor and (more importantly)(2) he didn't understand there would be no income tax filings for which to take a deduction. Some people just don't get it...

I ended the conversation by asking him who he voted for in the recent election. He said he didn't vote, couldn't be bothered with the time needed to vote...

I'm not referencing anything specifically and neither is Jamal, I was pointing out how asinine his comment is. People always look down on the welfare queens with disgust. No one ever even thinks about the corporate welfare kings. Both are disgusting to me.

Actually, "Jamal" was being specific and you got "called" on your post.

BTW, I wonder how many people those tax subsidies to GM benefited...

From your link:

"For local governments, incentives have become the cost of doing business with almost every business. The Times found that the awards go to companies big and small, those gushing in profits and those sinking in losses, American companies and foreign companies, and every industry imaginable.

Workers are a vital ingredient in any business, yet companies and government officials increasingly view the creation of jobs as an expense that should be subsidized by taxpayers, private
consultants and local officials said."

"In an interview, Mr.(Oliver) Stone criticized subsidies for industries like banking and agriculture but defended them for Hollywood, saying that many movies can be shot anywhere and that their actors and crew members pay state income taxes.Its good, Mr. Stone said of the film subsidies.Or like basically the way business is done. I dont understand what the moral qualm is.

One point about the above paragraph: there are (look them up) several states that DON'T have a state income tax, do you think that might impact where stars want to work?

You certainly can be disgusted, but perhaps learning more about how business in the real world works...nah...forget it...

BTW, yes "Jamal's" comment was asinine...
