    Roman,

    You are blowing the ‘Liberal’ or Socialist horn…

    Ther article said, “What U.S. corporations are able to get away with is absolutely amazing.”

    The real question is should corporations pay taxes at all? There are two things about corporate profits. First, they belong to the shareholders, yes? And if they have some profits that are not immediately paid in dividends, they are uses to expand the business which does what? Create jobs, yes? Helps economic growth?

    You would be better served by pointing to the hypocrisy of the comment. You need to illustrate the comments anti libertarian tone.

    Ah! No rest for the overworked.

    Comment from a sailing board:
    Now know that Obama has accomplished
    two things:
    First, Obama has made it fashionable to resent
    success rather than strive for it, and
    Second, he has managed to raise new barriers
    to success for those few trying while creating
    incentives for those who don’t.
