I think the outrage would make a bit more sense were the government not already indelibly linked to the prices and market for foodstuffs in the US market. Simply incredible amounts of public funds are spent to support agricultural industries which result in some pretty unique trends. The corn syrup with seems to be in most everything served in the US flows directly through the treasury via subsidies. While I agree that a more natural, hands off approach might be more elegant, pretending that controlling the price of high risk foods through taxation is an outrage while ignoring the fat that the current prices are set through subsidies against many of our best interests hardly seems intellectually honest.
If we are to be totally honest, the price of foods are controlled by the commodity market. It is there where bidding on products take place. So what happened?

Two things: first off, we started to burn up our food supply to satisfy environmentalists. Forget the fact that ethanol is actually dirtier to make, provides less milage, and destroys engines more quickly than gasoline, it's the though that counts.

When producers use corn to make into ethanol, that drives the price of corn up. Okay, no problem, so the price of corn is up, why is everything else up too? Farmers who used to grow wheat or soybeans dropped their crop for the higher selling corn. Now we have a shortage of wheat and soybeans and their price goes up. In fact, all grains go up.

So now we have a shortage of grains and the price of everything is up. But wait? What about meat? Quality hogs and cattle are fed grain products. Same goes with chickens.

Next we have the weakening of the dollar. Commodities are sold worldwide and have a price of their own. It now takes more US dollars to buy products on the market which drives the cost up. It's the same way with your gasoline.

Last but not least is subsidies, but subsidies were always there. They don't have that much of an impact on our food prices.

You're a child. And foul one at that.
If you think they make sense call your local Congressman and ask them to tax exposure to sunshine instead of the use tanning beds.

It would certainly produce quite a nice revenue stream.

Let me know how that works out for you, if the white suits don't transport you from your home.

let me do this slow, so even your mentally handicapped mind can grasp it.
the ball was put into play months ago being proactive.
5 years ago I was an Employee; and also 10 years ago.
2010 I walked away from a 6 figure sales management position to form my own gig.
Since 2010 my income has more than doubled.
2013 my income will almost double 2012 because of a new negotiated commission rate.
so as you are checking spelling mistakes, or attempting to invalidate anything someone says that is not a dirtbag liberal like yourself.....I will be building a home on a Caribbean Island that I will live in whenever I want to; and pay cash for it. A 1750 square foot vacation home where it is 80 degrees every single day.
PS: I already have a boat there. My new boat here in the USA is worth more than an entire block of Exchange Street in Akron. Paid cash at a foreclosure sale for it.
what is impossible to keep straight...is your reading comprehension.
is it a genetic problem for you, or are you just plum dumb.
so my ignorance that has provided 5 college educations with no debt, 3 homes; 6 cars, 2 boats; and a retirement savings that already pays in interest double the national average workers income. Selling the 2 USA homes will add 800K to the savings account.
how stupid am I.....I should have listened to you....I could be on govt assistance like you.
such a fool I am to go at it all by myself.
Priceless.

House rejected Obammy's deal

The cliff is the solution....tax hikes; and massive spending cuts.

posted at 4:35 by AP.

This Thursday a new Congress is seated; and will send only plan B for the Presidents signature.

Obammy already refused it.

As someone who paid US taxes for income earned overseas for several years, I assure you that if you're making more than 80k a year income (unless the rate has changed in the past year or two!) that the income becomes taxable in the United States as well as in the area you're earning money in! Which can really suck.
But, you already knew this, before moving operations to the Netherlands, or the Caribbean, or some other pipe dream of where you think business people move their assets?
so why are you not paying USA taxes now?

your post is all past tense.

If you're being paid for services rendered, that's income. All income generated overseas, including most types of interest, is to be declared and may be taxable.
I don't think you're being given bad advice, I think you're fabricating a narrative based on what you think banking and business on an international scale would look like. You've heard people talk about overseas accounts and have decided that overseas = untaxable. In order to try and style yourself as well-heeled and well informed, you're parroting back half remembered and half understood nonsense.
While somewhat charming, makes little sense to anyone who has ever had to file a FBAR.
may be taxable

you yourself wrote.....may be taxable

how about is not taxable.

and in your fantasy life of thinking you know everything.....can I tell you how clueless you are.

I think I will listen to the $25 billion a year corporation; and what their 45 lawyers instruct me to do, because 99% of my income is derived from their manufacturing.

listening to a liberal windbag like yourself is a recipe for failure.

please stay in the UK.....sharia law will suit you best.
