You're trying to draw parallels where there are none to draw. Let me show you how stupid the whole thing is.

If I were to buy a bottle of Bacardi 151 in a stupid Walmart store for $19.99 and if I were to pay in credit, and the interest portion of the credit transaction (say..,$3.00), and if those $3 were to be financed with Chinese yuans, I would at least have a bottle of Bacardi 151 to forget about it.

When government pulls $19.99 out of my pocket to give to a Fortune 500s (say.., Walmart) I'm still transferring $19.99 but I get sht in return.

You tell me.., do you at least want a bottle of Bacardi 151 for your reduction in wealth ($19.99)?
Or, do you want Walmart to keep the bottle?

Here is something to thing about.

It is a crime for an 18 year old man to have sex with a 15 year old girl isn't it?

If an 18 year old man has sex with a 15 year old girl, should he be registered as a sex offender and be prohibited from going anywhere close to schools and playgrounds? Should his neighbors be made aware of his status so they can hide their young daughters?

Maybe it's you who needs that ESL class. There is no such thing as a "Mexican word". But in all fair game, you're a little on the "slow side" so I'll cut you some slack.

That's not a credit card you're using, that's your state issued EBT card for food stamp purchases.

Some of your redneck states endorse that kind of behavior.

That's not the policy of THIS Administration. The PRIOR Administration sat that up, and this one is busy trying to correct it with a revised tax codes which the Republican party is blocking. At least, get that much straight. It's one of the primary reasons why I will not vote for Romney. He's for more of same.
I agree, corporate loopholes should be closed by means of a flat tax. At the same time, the rate should be lowered to a competitive rate. Global corporations keep their money abroad to pay the lesser foreign tax rates. Our small businesses are subject to the same corporate tax rate and are unable to to move money overseas so they move to Mexico. A lot have moved to Texas where, at least, the state rates are lower.

I wouldn't raise investment capital gains tax. That just might slow the investment business upstarts need. Most retirement plans depend on investment incomes. There is an interesting idea out there concerning hedge fund managers and their incomes. They are taxed at 15%. I bet that would set off Al Gore if he had to pay the income tax rates.:-)

Some middle class wage earners buy stock. I did. I did pretty well with the tech stocks like Qualcomm to name one. That isn't taught in schools anymore.

Yes, well, that interesting tax plan to raise tax rates on Hedge Fund Managers is Barack Obama's plan:

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/02/22/obam...

Obama also proposes dropping corporate tax rates from 35% to 28%, but he also wants to close loopholes and expects them to actually pay at that rate. Now, they don't much care for the idea, because 2/3 of U.S. Corporations already pay ZIP, ZERO, NADA in Federal tax - owing to their myriad deductions and write-offs. So, I have to ask you, what difference does the rate really matter if you don't pay anything anyway, but now you are going to be expected to actually pay your taxes?

See the problem?

Bush would be an obvious example. Some of them got voted out last election. Arlen Spector is one I can think of right now. But he changed parties like a shirt so who knows what he was.

These large corporations are sitting on 2 trillion dollars overseas because of the tax rate and uncertainty here. 28% is still too high. Germany is 15% plus a 5% surtax. The corporations that paid nothing were able to write off losses, a loop hole. A low flat tax with closed loopholes is, I think, what we need because, as you said, the rate doesn't matter with loopholes in place. That includes income tax also.

Yes, I know the hedge fund tax rate was Obama. Interesting idea. How would he get democrats to go along with that? George Soros is top dog in that area. Good luck with that one. The dems have their own 1%ers

Yikes....

When I said "your" I did not refer to you but instead to the fact that some redneck states do have age of consent laws as low as 16 yrs old.

A little low if you ask me.
