NPR Ends Juan Williams' Contract After Muslim Remarks

Any corporation that has to get stucj paying that 35% corporate tax. If you aren't global and are incorporated in the US you get stuck paying that 35% tax. Google % Apple are 2 very large corporations that play that money shuffle around the globe, then they park a major portion of their assets in countries that don't have to pay a corporate tax rate this way when they bring their money back to US they pay the corporate tax rate of that country. Like I said before, Google paid the US, 2.4% in corporate tax last year. If they were as caring and wanted to pay their fair share to the US, after all this is where the majority of their business is done, they would have kept their money in US banks and paid the 35% corporate tax rate. By the way, if Obama doesn't make the Bush tax cuts permanent or allow them to continue the corporate tax rate goes up to 50% and inheritance tax, at 0 now, will go up to 50% as well. Yeah, he's looking out for the little guy!!  (Oct 26, 2010 | post #662)

GOP has given up on black vote

They were the guys that got the affordable housing measure through Congress. They claimed that EVERYONE should own a home, that it was unfair that only certain people should be allowed to own a home. Janet Reno was told explicitly, to tell banks that if they didn't lend to potential minority home buyers, that those banks would be Federally investigated. The banks giving those loans knew they weren't going to get their money back, so along comes the hedge fund to save the banks bacon. Of course, you think banks have enough money in them to just give it all away. Those are just rich people that need to have everything taken away from them, right?? I know there were some predatory lenders that may have solicited some middle class people into taking out 2nd mortgages that couldn't afford the loans but, the vast majority of these loans were given to people that were not going to be able to afford paying them back, at all. If these people fell under the so-called predatory lenders net and knew they couldn't pay the loan back, why did they sign the paper?? It's not an excuse to cry wolf and expect the taxpayer to come to your rescue.  (Oct 25, 2010 | post #763)

Think about that, no Dept. of Education, Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid. We would be able to keep our entire paycheck and we could put the saved money away, to take care of ourselves in later life. Insurance policies would be very inexpensive and people would become a lot more responsible. I'm not afraid to educate the children in my local area, I don't need some mommy figure looking over my shoulder to make sure I'm doing it properly. We have the ability to do these things for ourselves; why do people continue to want to rely on some governmental institution? Our technology, would be so far more advanced, if the government got out of our lives. Imagine for a minute, if 500 years ago our form of government existed, we would be 1000 years further into the future, than where we are now. Government intrusion slows down technology & advacement.  (Oct 25, 2010 | post #616)

I do know that's true and this country would see much more of that money if they stopped punishing these corporations. Look, most of the large corporation in this country are run by Liberal Democrats and they all do the off-shore money game. Recently, Google just got out of paying the US corporate tax and only paid their off shore amount of 2.4% to the Federal government. Even the most Liberal people are going to listen to their tax accountants and avoid paying their so-called fair share. Our corporate rate is 35% when India is only 0% and Ireland is only 2%. I mean it is a FACT that lower tax rates lead to higher government revenues. I know that sounds contradictory to your way of thinking, but it is true. Clinton had a Republican Congress that kept him under the proper spending limits and low-&-behold we got a surplus. Low tax rates plus controlled government spending equals fiscal responsibility and we all prosper. Then we can all sit down and talk about where and what needs the most help in our society. We can do this, but you guys have to be a little more patient and fiscally responsible.  (Oct 25, 2010 | post #612)

Didn't Moses lead the Jews out of Eqypt to the land of Caanan(present day Isreal) where he was told by God to take them. When they got there they killed every living thing from livestock to women & children. In the process of taking this land Moses died and David(King of the Jews) took over. He resumed the savage destruction of the people of Caanan and eventually the Jews settled there. This is why they call it they're land, given to them by God.  (Oct 25, 2010 | post #609)

Except what has been stated in the Constitution. Protect the citizenry from all enemies both foreign & domestic. This does not mean don't trade with foreign governments, just keep us safe. As far as health care all of the blame in that department falls on the Federal Government, as usual. Gigantic beauracracies with no competition can not run efficiently. Medicare & Medicaid have driven the insurance companies into the problems that exist with health care. Thanks Ted Kennedy & the HMO. Let's face it, the only reason these entitlements exist is to buy votes. Can anybody truly believe that 70 billion dollars in fraud would exist if Medicare were a private company. These wonderful government programs are always done with the best of intentions but when they fall apart and become wastes of money, do we get rid of them and try something else? No, we continue to keep throwing good money after bad. Look, if you can show me how we are going to keep these programs and become solvent, then I'm all ears but, every time the government rolls out the latest "wonderful program" the real world shows us all how it will not work. I'm not saying we shouldn't help, I would just like to see the same regulation on itself, as they do with business.  (Oct 25, 2010 | post #608)

I agree with you if there were a God he wouldn't let innocent children suffer. The whole point of God is that we have been given Freewill not some powerful entity to invade our lives and save the children. God set it all in motion and now we have to Freewill to do with it what we want. Interesting how you assume that if God existed, he/she should come down & intervene in our lives, to save the children, right? Very similar to your way of thinking, that the Federal Government should come to the rescue, because we simple minded helpless children can't do it on our own, right? I think you've given yourself away.  (Oct 25, 2010 | post #605)

New 400,000 document Wikileaks release spotlights Iraq War

So do nothing when the Towers came down. Just put our thumb up our ass and sit in the corner and do NOTHING??????????? ? Somebody has to be made an example of, we can't just sit there and take it. I guess you would have advised FDR to sit it out when the Japanese attacked in 1941? I'm not saying the two are eqaul but these people have been blowing up installations for well over 10 years so we should just allow them to continue to blow-up whatever they want? Right, just get out of the way and let them walk all over you. I'm sorry but, what had we destroyed in the muslim world that gave them justification for the 1st attempt at the WTC? After that we did nothing and we got 2 planes slammed into the sides of both buildings and the Pentagon. I mean, at what point do you declare war or realize that it has been declared on you.  (Oct 25, 2010 | post #48)

Thank You, Florida. I've been saying this, for the last I don't know how long, since I started posting on these threads, but the ignorant liberals can't let go of their untruths & falsehoods. They must attempt to maintain control over people in order to keep them voting Democrat.  (Oct 25, 2010 | post #588)

What the hell does the CEO of that company or this company have to do with the plain fact that Liberals NEVER give in to Conservatives, that Conservatives ALWAYS have to give in to Liberals when it comes to legislation in Congress. It does not matter if it is a social issue or a fiscal issue Republicans ALWAYS must give in to Democrats in order to achieve ANYTHING!!!!!!!!!! I'm not crying about anything, I'm making an informed statement of fact. To be honest, I would be exstatic, if we could get a Congressional term where NOTHING happened and there was total gridlock. When they aren't creating legislation the American people have less governmental intrusion, and that is a GOOD thing!!  (Oct 25, 2010 | post #585)

GOP has given up on black vote

Capitalism simply protected itself from the absolute failure of the upcoming housing debacle. Everyone knows this was a liberal screw-up under the guise of everyone should own a home regardless of whether or not you could pay the loan back. The lenders knew they had bad paper and they got clever with how to unload it. Granted not everyone can lay blameless in this mess but, the main cause rests with Barney Frank and Chris Dodd. When regulators were attempting to pull back on the reigns these two Democrats were first in line to publicly say there was nothing wrong with Fannie/Freddie. Just imagine if liberals weren't so concerned about being FAIR so everyone could own a home, we wouldn't currently be having the unemployment mess we are in and Obama could be running roughshod over the private sector and the majority of the population would be asleep as usual becuase there would be relatively low umemployment.  (Oct 24, 2010 | post #759)

But will the unions/government give them back to the companies that own them? Will the bond owners that got screwed royally be reimbursed? Will the taxpayers get that money from the so-called profits you calim are going to be made from these car companies? I think we can safely say no to all of the above questions which in turn comes back to the realization that this administration wants to do nothing but destroy the capitalist system that has made this the greatest country in the history of all of mankind. Who cares about all of the millions of jobs that were lost everywhere else because God forbid any union jobs be lost. Those 10,000 or whatever amount of jobs is a drop in the perverbial bucket compared to what else has happened to the private sector in the last 2 years.  (Oct 24, 2010 | post #758)

Why don't we keep what we capture? Germany, Japan, Iraq, Kuwait. Why don't we just invade and take South America that wouldn't be all that tough, most of those countries don't have very strong militaries. If we are so imperialistic why don't we just take over the world and spread our peace-loving democracy to these mixed-up nations. I'd bet most of them wouldn't even fight and would surrender immediately. We have the power to do this so why don't we?  (Oct 24, 2010 | post #33)
