    A lot of folks get hyped up about the corporate tax code and don't have a clue what's in it.

    Just like all the hype about corporations not paying, "any", income taxes. They make estimated payments throughout the year and it appears that they didn't pay any taxes, because those payments aren't reflected on that years actual tax bill.

    And, probably the biggest misconception, is that corporations get money back. The only way for a corporation to get money back, is to pay more taxes than they owe. I got a check for $1,900 a couple of months ago, because I overpaid my payroll taxes.

    Asking the government to make necessary cuts is like asking a crack whore to quit smoking crack. It will go in one ear and out the other while at the same time they are telling you what they think you want to hear.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    The truth is people do need to be reminded of this constantly.Voters have short term memory and attention spans.Some people are just too busy to pay attention 24/7 to what our elected officials do. No independent group is going to run ads before primary and general elections questioning why the politicians enacted or voted for certain laws or refused to vote for certain laws that allow these loopholes and other things.

    yeayea this all sounds too familiar with how the Americans call that capitalism which is in essence diverting more money to the rich and leaving the poor to fend for themselves.

    Re: Major profitable corporations are paying negative income taxes.

    We live in an era of corporate socialism.

    I don't really know what else to say, it's sort of all been said. Our politicians are not really listening and people are slow to act. It's starting to happen though, OWS is proof of that. The situation will just continue to deteriorate until more people get involved in the activism - probably because more people will be affected - and then... well, I just hope it doesn't turn violent, but it looks like it probably will.

    Average Joe isn't saying any of the things that the occu-tards are preaching. I certainly don't want my tax dollars to be used for even more Leftist bailouts and bull****.

    Am I the only one that finds just a little messed up that the occu-tards are bitching about bailing out the banks in one breath and in the very next breath they're calling for the government forgive all their student loans?

    All I have to say to that, is: Not with my goddamn money!!

    Yeah, and going to bail their stupid asses out instead.

    Six of one, half dozen of another, IMO.

    IOW, on one hand we have dumbass bankers who got over-extended on sub-prime loans and a buncha college kids that got over-extended on student loans and now both want the taxpayers to foot the ****ing bill.

    At least the bankers have an excuse, the government made them do it.

    When I see actual college graduates coming up with these lame-brain ideas, it makes me proud that I didn't go to college.

    So you are agreeing that you are wrong with your earlier statement?
    And if you would like to get educated on their demands ill provide them for you here instead of making ignorant typical remarks


    I can tell the view of the movement you have is the one FOX "News" only preaches to you.
