Rapmaster2000: This is why I only use Samsung devices. Their shell corporations are far superior and lower-priced than Apple shell corporations.My preference of shell corporations is a unique statement of my personal brand identity and I have included these preferences as a part of my personality.
You're the jerk... jerk: Corporate taxes are silly/ridiculous. What is gained from taxing the corporate entity as opposed to those who own it?
HotWingConspiracy: Cook should just strip and drop a hot crackling shiat on the table while looking the lead of the panel in the eye and say "If you don't like it, change the law", then wipe with 100 dollar bills.
Pappy091: Walker: This just in (please sit down): Corporations and rich people find ways to avoid paying taxes, while the little people get audited, fined, and basically get the shaft./more at 11Yay!...more income envy.This just in, rich people pay FAR more in taxes (both percentage-wise and gross) than you could even imagine.Why do people think that raising taxes is going to fix a rising multi-trillion dollar deficit. Raising taxes is a drop in the bucket compared to what we need to do to get out of this hole.
CrazyCracka420: It's the politicians who allow these loopholes to exist in the first place that are to blame.

Pappy091: Almet: Pappy091: This just in, rich people pay FAR more in taxes (both percentage-wise...Warren Buffet disagreesWell, I am in generally in a higher tax bracket and I can promise you that I pay much higher taxes than my employees do. While they generally get a few thousand back every year, I have to make significant quarterly payments to Uncle Sam with no return at tax time.
you have pee hands: Phinn: Actually, he's given me a business idea -- a website (app, social media portal?) devoted to providing resources, training and encouragement to 20-somethings to help them start businesses.Concrete help for the young person who wants to be an entrepreneur and still hold onto his social values.If I can't think of one, and he can't think of one, then it already sounds like an unmet need.There's literally tons of services *claiming* to meet that need, the trouble is separating yourself from the charlatans. Or marketing effectively enough that you can get away with being a charlatan yourself.
Source4leko: Pappy091: Source4leko: Pappy091: ltdanman44: Pappy091: ltdanman44: Pappy091: My main complaint is how we are demonizing rich people/ large companies in this country. I just don't get it. They aren't the problem. It just gets under my skin when I see it.[i53.tinypic.com image 590x443][i52.tinypic.com image 590x442][i54.tinypic.com image 590x442][i51.tinypic.com image 590x443]You were saying? And yes, those charts are a little outdated. The current ones do not paint any better of a pictureAnd why does any of that mean that we should hate rich people?I because they control it all. We get the leftoversThat is absolutely ridiculous and shows a complete lack of understanding of economics. No one can "control it all". They aren't burying gold bars in the backyard.I think it's just easier for a lot of people to complain about the haves vs. the have not rather than work to become one of the haves, which is shockingly easy to do. Not talking about you specifically, just people in general that share your view point.Care to elaborate on this? How it is "Shockingly easy" to become one of the haves? I am legitimately curious how this is so easy.Live within your means and start saving/investing at an early age. Don't buy a house you can't afford with no to little down payment. Don't run up your CCs every month. etc, etc.If your average person started investing in a Roth IRA or some other retirement investment in their early 20's they would retire a multi-millionaire. It's so easy that it is insane that more people don't do it. I know I sound like a broken record, but the reason it isn't done is because our youth isn't taught to do it.Inherited a house no mortage, and I save 10% of my income, with 3% of my pre tax pay in an IRA with employer matching. Car will be paid off at the end of the summer, student loans equal one days pay a month. I made the average wage (approx 40k). I have CC debt that I am paying down from when I was injured and had to take u ...
Clemkadidlefark: Misplaced AngerDon't blame Apple's pencil whippers.Blame Congress for Title 26 USC. Apple is using loopholes and accounting Congress made part of the Tax Code at Title 26.Be angry at Congress.
snocone: Show of hands, plz.Stockholders should not take precedence over citizens.Was there a shift from for the "Good of the American People" to "Whatever the Stockholder Needs" or was it always that way?
pute kisses like a man: i wonder, would the US make more in tax revenue if it decreased taxes?
Pappy091: Dusk-You-n-Me: Pappy091: I believe it is a false belief that the middle class is suffering.It isn't false. It's a fact that wages are at historic lows. It's a fact that half the jobs in America pay less than $34,000 a year. It's a fact that without government assistance, 30% of our population would live in poverty. It's a fact that one in five children in the U.S. lives in poverty. You can ignore it, as most of our politicians and media does, or you can accept it and decide whether this is how you think the richest most powerful nation in the world should operate.I think that most of the world laughs their asses of at America's definition of poverty. I'm not saying that the lower class should be content, but our definition of classes is way out of whack with the rest of the world. Just look at the quality of life that the lower/middle classes have today compared to 50 years ago.This is still America, where you are responsible for your life. Everyone has the opportunity to be successful, however they define success. Redistribution of wealth is not the way to raise the lower/middle class. Better education with an emphasis on financial smarts is a good start though.
van1ty: A corporation will spend 100 million dollars to avoid paying 99 million in taxes.
jshine: You're the jerk... jerk: jshine: You're the jerk... jerk: Corporate taxes are silly/ridiculous. What is gained from taxing the corporate entity as opposed to those who own it?Corporations are people too, my friend.Do you have something meaningful to add to the conversation? Do you have an argument that it is more efficient to tax the corporate entity rather than the stock holders?Romney's quip may be glib, but its not really inaccurate. They are (legal) "people" in most senses of the word, with most of the same rights & responsibilities. I can't see any reason why they should get an exemption on taxation unless they're willing to also give up the other benefits of "personhood" -- i.e., free speech rights, the ability to absorb legal liability rather than passing it on to their owners, etc... Why should a fictitious entity be treated as a person for the purpose of granting legal rights & benefits, but not for the purpose of tax liability?
theorellior: The more I parse it, the more I think Pappy091 is trolling everyone. The tone of that post reminds me of the "top-shelf pussy" frat troll.

Raising taxes is a drop in the bucket compared to what we need to do to get out of this hole.Not percentage wise. And this isn't about rich people, it is about the biggest corporations in America that pay little to no tax yet they make billions of dollars.Compare that to a small local store and the taxes they pay.Go see what Delta or GE paid in taxes last year.
