When I consider the source, motivation and honesty
of posters on this board pro and con inversion, and likewise consider the remarks and lack of honesty on the part of politicians from state governments, the congress and even the president I can only conclude that Walgreen will and should go forward with plans for inversion. The most influential voice out there is that of the silent majority.
I hope you enjoy the cost of your Big Mac in Switzerland I hear its $7.80 for just the burger.
As for the Swiss military they don't work weekends and your effective tax rate as a citizen is over 50%.
Enjoy your new country.. I'll stay here and shop in American business.
Thank you very much..
beach, I am a veteran and a patriot. I am not an isolationist. I believe we are all citizens of the world and that our duties lie far beyond the continental 48. I have lived in several European communities for extended periods of time, including Andermatt and Lucerne, Switzerland (Shcweiz). I found the citizens of Schweiz to be generally prosperous and happy.
