Burger King announced yesterday they are keeping their headquarters in Miami, Florida.
In other words they are staying in the US.

either way, my plan would solve it : cut the corporate tax rate significantly, collect it from every corporation, and tax individual income instead.
McConnell promptly declared it DOA--and it never saw the light of day on the House floor.
Retiring Camp was term-limited as Chair, which Rep. P. Ryan takes over next year.
My gut feeling on Ryan is he wants to do the right thing--but he bounces back-and-forth because of TEA-pressures.
I'd love to see Ryan forget about being President as long as he's allowed to be Chair of W&M and get the House in order.
Ryan's a protege of Jack Kemp as I'm sure you know and I often call him the most knowledgeable man in DC on the economy.
We haven't had a shutdown so far this year due to the "small" agreement between Ryan and Sen. Murray, crafted in secrecy.
Yet a small cut in COLA to Veteran's pensions was fought off by neos and military-state pols from both parties, costing the Treasury billions.
The decreases in the increases to the budget must be brought under control in all sectors, IMHO; the guts of any grand-bargain .

"Bloomberg is an authoritarian. He's not an authoritarian in the way Josef Stalin or Pol Pot was authoritarian, but every instinct tells you he's a man who would use any power given to him to govern every aspect of public and private life whenever necessary -- or, more precisely, whenever he finds it necessary, which is frequently. All said, he's exactly the type of person who makes the Constitution a necessity.
Anyone who believes your caloric intake is government's prime concern should be watched carefully, of course; but no matter what crusade the man's on, his rationalization for limiting personal freedom is a dangerous one. Some of his proposals are popular (smoking bans), and others are less so (limiting portion sizes and banning ingredients), but all of them set precedents that distort the relationship between government and citizens. The jump from minor infringements on personal liberty to giant ones is a shorter one than you think. Allow a politician to tell you what your portion sizes should be and the next thing you know you're letting Washington force you to buy insurance you don't want.
If the Bloomberg administration believes that salt -- "the greatest public health threat facing" New York City -- is worth losing your freedom over, imagine what he'd have planned after a terrorist attack.

2. Wrong again....According to Investors business daily:
"If there is anything New York doesn't need it's more reasons for Empire State residents to flee.
Over the last decade (2001-11) New York's population fell by 1.6 million. Many disgruntled New Yorkers said enough, packed up and left the state. This was a larger population drain than suffered by any other state. Congratulations.

3. Until "I" am prepared? So I have to change to your warped way of thinking about our constitution and rights eh?
Show me in the constitution where Health care, or Medical services are in the bill of rights.....I'll wait.
Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.
