Why didn't they become foreign corporations when their foreign profits were taxed in the year they were earned?
Why are they still here regardless. According to you, they would jump ship to save a few % in corporation taxes.
So why are they still here?

You posted what I have been thinking. I know six member juries are common for civil and misdemeanor cases but I've never heard of one in a felony case. But, then again, Florida does seem to march to a different drummer.

To prove my point, I would like every liberal on here to respond:
A conservative saying Obama is "light-skinned enough and doesn't talk in a negro dialect if he doesn't want to" and that "he's the first mainstream African-American who is articulate, bright and 'clean'" as Reid and Biden so awkwardly put it.
Truly. Imagine any conservative saying that.
I'd have no choice but to agree with liberals that some conservatives are racists if any conservative made those comments.
So why did Biden and Reid get a pass?
Any liberal's response would be appreciated.
I think 9/11 was Not George Bush fault, in retrospect signs were there but mistakes were made.
Bush was no a racist and did get prescription drug for Medicare.
I am not against all republican all the time.

It would seems that you find nothing positive about President Obama and Democrats.

If all you said was "Okay", then that would have been fine. You want to make this about obama. Obama just happens to be the guy with the power right now. I'll still be bitching about these tactics if they are happening in the next presidency no matter who is there. So quit acting stupid.
Okay, fine. Get off my back already.

You're certifiable. The President isn't going anywhere and Eric Holder isn't going to resign. You've got 3 1/2 years to whine about it until Hillary gets elected, then you'll have another 8.
This administration is in for a rude awakening when the hens come home to roost. Holder and perhaps even Obama will not get away with breaking the law and trashing the Constitution.

Obamacare hasn't even sunk in yet. A new poll done recently said 4 out of 10 Americans think Obamacare has already been repealed. Boy, talk about a rude awakening in 2014 when they get a letter from the IRS!

Hillary will be lucky if she lasts to the last debate in 2016. The baggage of Benghazi and Obamacare cannot keep her afloat.

No one likes to be lied to. Not even liberals. You're just in the minority of the minority.

Not at this level and to this degree under this much suspicion with so many documented lies and stonewalling by so many.
Everyone expects a certain amount of "spying" and "targeting" goes on under any administration. Bush looked into two major liberal organizations but Clinton holds the record - and no one even blinked an eye even under Clinton.
It's very different now, Homer. I'm sorry to have to tell you the obvious.

There has to be a way to make money off all this rightwing fear and paranoia. A media outlet playing into these fears has already been taken, hmmm anyone have any other suggestions?

We're limping along now only because the president is convienently hiding out overseas for the time being. But people on both sides are getting antsy for some answers and changes.
As I understand it, Holder has already been given a letter by a group of bipartsan congressmen to resign.
It will....

Obama doesn't know what to do other than push his domestic agenda of big government. Never has.
No one takes him seriously on the world stage. The majority of us don't either.
Why would it take the President of the United States nine days to respond to Iranian students protesting their Iranian oppressive regime and begging the outside world for support - even if just a statement of support?
No wonder the rest of the world thinks we're weak.
It's just too mindboggling how detached this man is as a leader.
obama is not a leader, he is an inexperienced, empty suit who was elected twice because he is culturally popular.

Well, then, that makes you a hypocrite of the highest order.

You give two old white guys in your party - the leaders of your party, no less - who clearly made subtle but awkward racist statements a pass but paint everyone in the conservative movement a racist because they just want smaller government?

I'm actually embarrassed for you. Didn't think that was possible.

I've said it before, if Obama is ever "removed" by any means, this nation will burn. Rodney Kings riots will look like a block party compared.

There's also a few apps that can be purchased. You can buy the throwaway phones and pay cash for minutes. The criminals already know how to do that. The smartphones with gps devices are the way to be tracked. Anyone who is up to anything no good would never use such a phone. Or a computer. Like you said; stay off the grid.
The Senate may vote to prohibit these apps.
The police already track people and record their phones and text messages to entrap people in sting operations; how do you feel abou that? Shouldn't the police just do their jobs rather than create a crime and then arrest people? This entrapment is ridiculous.

LOL, stupid Jane wants the USA to be the babysitter of the world and longs for more military involvement in every corner of this world. BTW, our ally, Saudi Arabia is backing the rebels, along with the other moderate Arab nations. The Russians, Iran and China backing the regime. And you, dummy, think we should get involved? How?
when in history has appeasement worked?

Obammy is a cross between Carter and Chamberlain.

So Nascar has always had so many obvious cases of drivers gaining the lead by pushing the cart ahead into the wall.
Are you saying it s perfectly legal to purposefully wreck another car?
The NBA has changes rules throughout the years. Russell brought about the goaltending rule, the shot clock, the definition of traveling, the rules involving blocking close to the rim.
Golf changes its rules as does football & baseball.
Maybe you need to get with the program - ithe rules are not the same as Jerry West's days at WVU.
Rubbin' is racin'. Always has been. Don't like it. Don't watch it. Walking is a violation. Double dribble is a violation. Touching an opponent is a violation. Enforce the rules or change them. Until then the NBA will be a joke sport.
