So the answer is NO, you can't.
No, the answer is not no. As I believe I pointed out, a billion is asstes is alot, but well exceeded by major corporations, several of our nations cities (Detroit being the most visible at the moment). Liabilities are the problem...its intuitive, as I stated before. Especially when you toss good money after a lost cause......from an economic standpoint...who would do that?

What you're talking about is volume profit--not item profit.
If a manufacturer is selling widgets making a $25.00 profit for each one, then it doesn't matter if he sells a hundred widgets or a million. He still wants to make $25.00 per each widget regardless what tax bracket he's in. So if he sells a million and has to pay 10% more in taxes, he either eats that 10% or passes it along. In most cases, he passes it along.

At this point, I would simply ask any young person to review the last 3-4 pages of 2626, and my own of inputs of course. You can either seek to understand the economic constructs that have made this country what it is or you can, as 2626 wrote "I say: turn him/her upside down, shake out his pockets, and see what is in his/her pile." Its your life, its your future.....may you have the pride to press on and get your own palace.

I've never suggested that business should not be taxed...please go back and survey my inputs to prove me wrong....I'll wait for your evidence.....but in fact, the corporate tax in the US is one of the top rates in the world, if not the highest. So, as taxes go up on business, where do you think the money does come from?
Barefool thinks the rich people will pull it out their ass, or at least that's what he wants them to do,...he just wants a free ride.

You'll never convince this pr!ck of any of the fundamental business principles, or ever get him to grasp any free market economics,...or mathematics,...credit going to the public education system,...among other things,...of course. Don't waste your time trying to convince this retard unless you're on here to develop your comedy / writing skills or take a few shots at the mentally challenged,...like Barefool,...or zazz,...or yeaho,...and that canadian numbnut 'up his own ass.'....wonder where that silly pr!ck's been lately?...maybe he finally melted up there and trickled down the drain.

So which is it?

Of course, many "US" companies go out of their way to not pay this tax.

E.G., Apple.

I guess they are worried about passing costs on to their consumers...

Rich people don't pay.

Or avoid paying, e.g., Mitt Romney.

Though I agree rich people do pull lots of other things out of their azz.

Getting barefool to understand concepts such as the theory of debit and credit,...the paradox of thrift,...supply and demand, the laws of average,...etc, etc. is like trying to get zazz to slim down to 450 lbs.....not gonna happen.

The words; work, cost, pay, responsibility, and self-reliance have no meaning to these freeloaders,...their just a bunch of angry primates who's gonna call you a racist,...just like a baby with a bottle,...they gotta have it.

His dad was a magistrate and no one can be sure what kind of interference he ran when zimmerman was a juvie.
We saw how his daddy interfered with SPD.
We are certain that the pedophile is a liar and has a history of violence including an felony arrest for assault.


Prove he molested his cousin.

Ok. One of two things. Either you believe I suggested businesses should never be taxed (which is inaccurate) or you think that businesses should never be taxed. Elaborate please.

You are absolutely correct on all counts. You can add GE, and any number of companies that used US tax laws to their advantage. So when the President says he's cutting back on all that, after 4 years, you can run the same argument past him (and the senate)

In this, you are at least partially correct. Some rich people do not pay...they contribute to charity, they invest to create jobs, they put away for retirement in tax deferred accounts (as many middle and lower income people do). All of it in accordance with the law. They are playing by the rules of the country.
