Here is what simple minded voters/citizens do not understand. If a business must pay a 35% tax on there merchandise, they must charge/sell it for at least 35% more than the actual cost if they are going to make a profit.
Think: a product costs, materials, labor, etc plus the profit a company must make has a total cost of $65 the cost to the consumer will be $100 so the gov't can get its $35, the tax rate.
Simple minded citizens fail to understand that they pay all of the taxes that the gov't charges the company. Shame, shame and shame. MO
TV news. A commentator stated that BO paid the $490 million just for Iran to keep talking. They got absolutely nothing for it. Maybe I can sell them my shanty for several hundred thousand. MO
Simple solution to the problems. It is time for the gov't to put everyone to work rather than support them on welfare with them doing nothing. Since gov't mandates wages and benefits today, gov't can and must create MW jobs-no higher salary-and any one on welfare must take one of these jobs. Where can these jobs be created? Street sweeper; grass mowing; cleaning gov't property; highway beautification; etc, etc and etc.
You will see people move out of this requirement for their money and benefits. As one told me: "If I have to work for my money, I'm going to get me a good job". Think about it.
Liberals will not go for this because they will say: "It is demeaning". MO
Question. Who cares where and to whom it is sold? If the pipeline is not put in to the southern refineries Canada plan to build a pipe line to its west coast and sell the oil to China. People we live in a world mkt.
Problem: There are more people interested in TMUS besides DISH. I am betting in an M or A TMUS will be worth $50/share. Don't forget Sprint.
IDIOTS do not understand that nothing is free. Someone has to pay for it.
There are too many people that when the gov't pays for something they consider it to be free.
Those that have some the gov't will take it and give it to some doo-less dud.
Shame, shame and shame. MO
How wrong a gov't is to mandate wages and benefits that a company must pay. The idiots in gov't undoubtedly have been contacted by one or more of the supreme beings, gods, angels, allah, mohamad or the devil, telling them how much each employer can pay. If you just think about it a little gov't in a capitalist country should not be mandating such. Shame, shame and shame. JMHO.
I could not believe the ads listed a discount of up to 35% on the '14 Silverado and one ad said up to 65%. If this is true you can buy a new truck much, much cheaper than a used truck.
What do you mean, it was/is the greedy liberals that have put on all of the corporate taxes. Liberals needed more money to waste. Citizens on the street do not understand they pay higher prices because of corporate taxes. It is time to run the liberals out of town on a rail. JMO
Depends on which side of the fence you are sitting on. The liberal/progressive/socialist side wants higher taxes so the gov't will have more to waste. Conservatives believe getting something for their dollar when they spend it.
At this time if all gov't programs were thoroughly investigated you would find at least a 60% waste.

Think about what you wrote. Only idiots want a war. The world has a lot of war mongering leaders that want to declare war and kill you. You must stand up to defend yourself. Today one of the biggest threats is the radical muslims that want to kill or convert all infidels. At this time so much of the infidel world is not willing to do anything to stop this threat. Shame, shame and shame. AJMHO
Wealth is mostly created from commodities, manufacturing and food. All of the things you list exist because of these 3 things. Remove these and everything else dries up. Think about it.
For this discussion, rich is anyone that has money to invest in a start up company. Poor is anyone that does not have any money to invest.
This should help the voters on the street to see how corrupt politicians get when they are in office too long. All elected offices should have a 2 term limit, just like the president.
It will never happen because the corrupt have to vote to set term limits. Politicians are not stupid. They will not vote them selves out of office.
Liberals understand corp. taxes. They want more money to waste. If Feds stopped wasting money on programs they should not be involved in, we could reduce the budge by at least 60%. AJMO
I agree we need to show unity. 6 years of this administration and the leader has made it a point to have most of our friends turn their backs to us. Those that haven't want our foreign aid. AJMO
And why not? Gov't forces corps to collect money for them. Idiots on the street that scream that corps should pay even more taxes, think about it. The money that corps turn over to the gov't that are called corporation taxes, like now about 35%, this is dollars added to the price of their merchandise that customers pay. Do you understand; customers pay not corps. Fact not just MO.
I don't know about that. On the internet I see that 2014 Silverado is being offered for up to 35% off. What shocked me, one said up to 65% off. If GM is discounting at this rate they can not be making much money. MO
