    AShame on Apple! I had great respect at one time, thought Steve Jobs was great. But he’s dead now and probably good, doubt if this was what he had in mind.

    Should that not be GE who we paid tax money to? Or maybe GM who does not have to pay taxes for ten years? Maybe they put something about being green and liberal in the titles when they applied to the IRS and “bad customer service” let them slide. I bet if they had to fill out a lot of extra paper work on what they pray to and what books they read Apple could have gotten just as sweet of a deal as GE or GM. Oh well Apple played by the rules. To bad. I guess that is why they did not get any sweetheart deals to I don’t know, Install Charging stations for the Volts in the Middle east?
    Oh Wait I know they were not on the IRS list of Donors for Mitt, that is how they got away with only paying 6 billion to the IRS.

    Don’t deify Steve Jobs.
    I am one of “the faithful”, but you can be sure that he was very cunning and kept as much of our money as possible. (The great thing has been that it has been continually re-invested back into the company.)
    Apple plays by your USA rules and minimises taxes as much as legally possible.

    Taxes are the tithes of the progressive lefts church. To avoid giving as much as possible is a sin against their god.
    The beast must be fed.

    It appears Apple was able to use Ireland as a tax shelter quite legally. If this is the case, then it is not Apple’s ‘fault’, it is the legislature’s. Those who write our tax codes bend over backwards to appease corporate donors, donors who ofttimes help draft the legislation benefiting their companies.
    Every business sheltering income overseas does so because they have been enabled by the bipartisan greed and lack of ethics in the House and Senate.

    I have a small addon on my browser that shows you what country your site is in (helps to make sure you are where you want to be). Ireland is making money not only from Apple but from Facebook.

    You seem to have Bill Gates and Steve Jobs confused. I am no Apple fan but Steve Jobs didn’t steal other people’s ideas. Bill Gates did take people’s ideas, either sell to me or I’ll bankrupt you.

    Amazing – GE pays no taxes, yet Apple gets all the press. Amusing to note that GE’s stock is a fraction of what is was 12 years ago, and Apple has tanked.
    Yep, I’d say the high salares were earned. NOT

    They won’t support this country, they won’t hire its citizens… and yet the “super-patriots”- the ones who’ll be the first to scream “USA #1!” in your face in any other situation- are not only okay with this, they’ll tell you that we should lower our standards to match the corporations’ demands. Apparently the working people of this great nation of ours are worth no more than your average Chinese sweatshop laborer and should compete on that basis.
    If the loyalty of these “super-patriots” doesn’t lie with the people of this nation, then where DOES it lie?

    Steve Jobs definitely stole other peoples ideas. His mastery was at putting a couple of ideas together and making them marketable.

    It sounds like it was perfectly legal.
    I do everything legal to reduce my tax liability too.
    Hey! I know: maybe the TAX SYSTEM IS BROKEN.
    What a concept.

    Dear Comrade Morin: Apple pays its taxes. It obeys tax laws.

    I stand corrected.I just figured him for an honest sort and a nice guy.

    Oh it’s not fair at all, and it’s not acceptable, and I never said it was.
    This was about Apple and Not about GE, Or GM or any of the others.
    But most t-party would scream if the GOP run business had to pay another dime.
    I don’t think he had demanded anyone to pay their taxes or else.

    well, we do agree on that. They have put more small busdsinesses out of work than any other intity. But I expect you believe the myth about the “Job creators”
