    Thanks Scott for posting the Paul Rosenberg article. I hope other members read it.


    You mean these “tax cheats”?

    “Among companies listed on the S&P 500, [url=]almost one in nine paid an effective tax rate of zero percent[/url] — or even lower — over the past year, according to an analysis by USA Today.”


    I find it amusing that people[size=200][/size] like sweikert that chooses to be a sheeple ( and walks around in a bent over position with regards to taxes and government ..

    cannot stand that independent people walk thru this life saying [b]NO MAS!!![/b] and making choices that reflect this.

    I have always envisioned the morally oppressed people in positions of power.. that lay awake at night.. upset that there are people around the country.. smoking pot, having a cocktail.. enjoying consensual sex and placing a few bets on a football game..

    I applaud people like sweikert.. because its these very same people that never question.. always follows.. this is what keeps your government going.

    “When Plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men living together in society, they create for themselves over a course of time a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it”

    Frederic Bastiat

    So TRUE!!!!



    BTW I personally think corporations should not pay taxes depending on

    1.) how many jobs they actually produce

    2.) and the quality of jobs..


    I may be wrong.. if someone can correct me

    but was it not Roosevelt that came up with the ingenious method of having the taxes automatically removed from your pay check???

    I would go out on a limb and say this… if sweikert had to sit down every 2 weeks when he got his paycheck and had to physically write a tax check to the government.. he would be singing a completely different tune..:roll::roll::roll::roll:

    According to my definition, then yes, they are. But according to one of their high-priced PR flunkies (like that odious woman who does the oil & gas industry ads) “we pay all of our legally due taxes.” That is – generally – technically true. What they leave out when they say that though is that it’s easy to obey the tax laws when the people who write those laws are in your pocket while at the same time their lips are firmly attached to your rear end. (Yeah, they really are that flexible). That link you provided is actually understating the situation, [url=]here’s one that is even more eye-opening.[/url] There is a reason that [url=]]the Cayman Islands have more registered businesses than people[/url] and it’s not because office space rents are cheap.

    In 1955, of the total income tax collected by the US government, 40% came from corporate income taxes and 60% from personal income taxes. Last year that ratio was 17% from corporate income taxes and 83% from personal income taxes. And that was at the same time that corporate profits had reached astronomical levels and the income of the middle and lower classes had been stagnant for the past 10 years, or in some cases, even declining.

    What the US needs is another Teddy Roosevelt giving the plutocrats hell. I think maybe we have one in Elizabeth Warren, and thank god for her. I wish there were 99 more like her in the Senate.[/quote]


    This is a very well documented argument that Mr. Rosenberg brings up here. If you surf through the internet you will find the AFL-CIO effectively interpreting the data as Mr. Rosenberg does. However you will find another view of this here:
