    Okay folks, the “King” isn’t exactly a “prince”, but due to tax law changes in the U.S., ALLOWING THEM TO DO THIS!!! he’s one of many, many, like all those good folks like Romney supporting the “cash in the Caymans” campaign. Our ACTUAL tax rates PAID btw, aren’t that great, and are nothing compared to what foreign folks, like west African nations charge our oil companies in taxes over there, but, like all corporate taxes and “expensed” they’re passed on to customers, so what’s the big deal? Oh, RIGHT, it means the CEOs and board folks make more PERSONAL PROFITS, not actual “corporate” income!!

    Burger King is not even an American owned company. Bennett displays his ignorance.

    Bennett said nothing about “ownership”…you (willfully?) misunderstand / misrepresent. Ownership is, in this dialog, irrelevant.

    Another example of the left-wing news nerds doing their darndest to not tell the story. The US is the only Country on the face of the Earth that taxes profits made both here and abroad. BK has about 12,000 restaurants, half outside the US.They will still pay taxes on profits— Federal, State, Local and Property taxes— made in the US, just not on profits made elsewhere. (The Left’s answer to this is to increase their taxes.Brilliant.)

    For the record, I’ve increased my BK consumption by 100%, just to counteract liberal fools. Unfortunately this amounts to only one Whopper, because in Obumer’s economy I can’t afford to eat even fast food. It’s my small contribution to the BK “buycott”.

    Cooking at home is cheaper, and luckily I was taught how to cook..In fact, I’m BBQing a LiptonBurger and hotdog as i type. Not among my culinary masterpieces, but it will do. I’m a firm believer that the left’s “meme” that if poor folks didn’t eat “unhealthy” fast food, they’d be starving in the streets. Complete hogwash. It’s not my fault they were never taught how to boil water.

    Again with the liberal victim mentality. Why don’t you show a little personal responsibility instead of blaming everyone else for your deficits?

    If I had your liberal mentality, I’d be asking you for a handout.

    @churhill
    Oooooh! burn!
    I was surprised @ NeoConMan’s non satirical comment but all you can do is attack him personally?
    .
    Seems he threw in your face your exact libertarian argument. Why is your economic situation President Obama’s fault personally? You rail against others for exactly the same thing he asked you, not taking personal responsibility for YOUR personal situation.
    .
    You are usually an enjoyable read, your ranting hatred takes mental acuity to refute, but in this case your hypocrisy was laid bare for all but the most ignorant and mentally incompetent to see.

    As has been explained to you numerous times, while the government cannot create jobs, it can create the environment for job growth. When there is job growth, there is more of a demand for workers, and wages rise. It’s called a “workers market”. When there are no jobs and unemployment is high, wages stagnate. It’s called an “employer’s market”. It’s a supply and demand thing,

    I have faith that eventually Obama will eventually leave office, and we’ll get someone in charge that knows how the economy works and doesn’t have disdain for business. Hopefully when that happens, millions of underemployed people like myself will see their fortunes rise. In the meantime, I do the best I can. I opened my own business, but things are slow. I’m always looking for work, but the Obamaconomy sux. Still, I don’t need the government to hold my hand, and I don’t apply for welfare or food stamps, the latter of which I possibly qualify for, the former of which I would qualify for if I simply gave up looking and sat on my azz all day. So while I can blame the government for poor economic policy, I don’t rely on anyone or anything but myself. And THAT’S what personal responsibility is about.

    I hope this didn’t strain your mental acuity.

    No, no; Churchillwasright was right. As any good Conservative knows, if we win, it’s because we took personal responsibility; if we lose, it’s because of Obama’s economy.

    Fascinating wordplay going on, here. But I liked Neo’’s summation. Short and pithy, amusingly sarcastic. Didn’t the Bard pen something about brevity?

    It’s how the economy is “worked” that worries me!

    I still think of Canada as the home of “Les Ogres”, at the Molson Centre!
