    No reponse on the Defence Dept plan to work together with the Dept of energy to help create solutions or our dependency on foreign? Or are you just going to continue ignoring the facts and the people trying to work together to solve our problems so you can just continue to troll with you little off-topic partisan posts on every thead?

    Why should my taxes subsidize another corporation? Can't these capitalists start a business and make it work without a sugar tit?

    Are you serious that you do not know what subsidies are, or that we are giving them to the oil companies despite their highest profits in history?
    the boner video has been withdrawn, conspiracy for sure, since it was a republican suggesting that big oil should pay a fair share.
    If he can't read the other link, or use an online dictionary, he is beyond help.
    The oil biz gets a lot of tax breaks, provided by a compliant congress. They bend over ever so easily when oil men come to town, been that way since the first Bush entered the WH....

    The ugly truth is that corporations do not pay any taxes.

    Zero.

    Nada.

    None.

    Any cost they acquire due to taxes is simply added to the cost of the final product and the consumer pays that tax, known as a "hidden tax".

    One way to spur the ecomony is to eliminate all corporate taxes (which is being paid for by the consumer, anyway). This will have the effect of reducing the cost of goods and increasing demand for those goods.

    Not all taxes are passed onto consumers

    I'd like to hear Turtles comment on that.

    He's always talking about the middle and lower class suckling the teat of the rich...
