    If Congress doesn’t want Apple to take advantage of loopholes, maybe Congress shouldn’t have made loopholes. It amazes me that Congress thinks that if they create a loophole that nobody would take advantage of it.

    Joel Pett is spot on.
    If what Apple’s doing sounds whack but it’s legal —> maybe it’s time to look at the tax system itself, eh?
    A simpler tax system would tend to prevent scandals like those emerging now, too.

    Bill Maher did a bit about the IRS targeting the tea party.

    Yeah, it’s funny. In a grade school kind of way. It takes all the false information circulated about a group of YOUR fellow citizens and denigrates them.

    You (and Bill) should be ashamed.

    IF a corporation takes advantage of the legal deductions found within the tax code, why are they being singled out?

    If you are a homeowner with a mortgage, do you not take advantage of the deductions for property taxes and interest paid?

    If you are a small business owner, do you take advantage of the deductions for an office space and depreciate your equipment?

    So why not go to a “fair” tax system? Oh yeah, the “rich” would still not be paying their “fair share”. Hypocrites.

    Corporations just pass on their tax bills to consumers in the cost of their goods and services. Raise taxes on corporations, and corporations will raise the price of their goods. In the end, it always falls to the consumer to pay taxes.

    Glenn Beck compared the campers who were slaughtered in Norway to the Hitler Youth. Real classy guy.

    Nope…for comedy I like Jon Stewart. Maher is so …. profane …. and really goes overboard on the hate thing. I don’t find him funny at all.

    Sooooo. Dude, what is with the implied slur on my character? Did you manage to look down your nose when you typed it? Squint your eyes a bit and curl that lip in derision?

    I DO try to keep it guided or developed by or relying on the intellect rather than upon emotions or feelings; rational. But I’m only human and I find relief in good comedy. Laughter lifts the “spirit” and joy eases the heart. A fact. About the heart.

    But Maher does not fill that bill.

    Most politicians and all CEO’s don’t know or care how we feel, they are sociopaths . A big group of handicapped people went to talk to S. Brownback. They told of their very real hardships and needs. He couldn’t even begin to know or care about their situations.
    Some sell their souls, for riches, some sell their souls for power. Once the deal is struck, they aren’t even half human, because Satan is the liar and very evil.

    Lobbyists may write the law but it still takes your congressional representative to pass it. Stop re-electing them and send someone to Washington who will revise the tax code.
