    Foreign Tax Havens Put US Filers on Hook

    U.S. taxpayers would need to pay an average of $1,259 more a year to make up the federal and state taxes lost to corporations and individuals sheltering money in overseas tax havens, according to a report.

    “Tax haven abusers benefit from America’s markets, public infrastructure, educated workforce, security and rule of law — all supported in one way or another by tax dollars — but they avoid paying for these benefits,” U.S. Public Interest Research Group said in the report released today, the deadline for filing 2013 taxes.

    In total, the U.S. loses $150 billion in federal revenue and another $34 billion in state revenue annually because of money parked in tax havens, the Boston-based consumer advocacy group concluded.

  • Now that's what you call a strong economy. But the racist American haters will say that because they are broke is proof its not. What it proves is you should never bet against Obama. Obamacare is also helping out the economy as people are insured and aren't saving all their money because they're scared about what will happen if they get sick and people who do get sick no longer going bankrupt.

    WMT can't even solve their simple problems. What chance do you think they have of solving more complex problems? Pretty much nil.

    My M2M stock buys are already paying dividends. One of the stocks I bought, CTRL, just got upgraded by Raymond James this morning to a strong buy. CTRL sells devices for the connected home. Toll Brothers recently started installing their products in their new homes. Toll Brothers sells luxury homes but some of the other home builders who build your average homes have started offering their products as an option to buyers. This will become standard in the future. It will take the same path as things like ranges and sodded yards were in the past. Home builders never used to offer them in their new homes or if they did it was an option but as competition heated up, builders started making those things standards to get a leg up on the competition and it soon became standard with all home builders. Of course the connected home is just a small part of the M2M world. An even bigger part of M2M is connecting all those wireless devices that people now have with wired devices via products we are now seeing come to market A good example are products where you can use your printer from your tablet or smart phone via new M2M products without trying to work with an APP that is cumbersome at best and really are a pain to try and use, when it even works. The future of M2M is so bright and its just getting started. There will also be a lot of companies bought out in this arena.

    For some stupid reason, Yahoo won't let me post the other half of the story. Just get a quote on WMT on Yahoo and the story is under there. Its well worth reading. It talks about when you buy your product from half way around the world and it takes 4-6 weeks to receive the product, its much harder to correct the problems that WalMart has.

  • Everyone knows the problems WalMart has been having with empty shelves but when you buy most your junk from slave nations half way around the world, fixing the problem becomes much tougher.

    Walmart's Out Of Stock Problem: Only Half The Story?

    Walmart has a problem, and in acknowledging it, the company might have taken the first steps to solving it. The problem is framed as out-of-stocks. According to the retail blog RetailWire, the empty shelf problem was first reported by Bloomberg early last year. Fellow Forbes contributor Walter Loeb asked the very pointed and clear question “Why Are Walmart Stores Such A Mess?” last summer in one of his blogs. The company responded with pointed denials in both cases.

    All that has changed. At a company meeting this month in Orlando, executives reported they were leaving almost $3 billion on the table as a result of out-of-stocks. That’s a big number and Bloomberg reports the company plans to add store associates into stores to speed up shelf restocking.

    At the same time, the company is reportedly trying to cut back on total inventory. For the past three years, inventory has been growing at a faster rate than sales. Walmart is not alone in this problem. In fact, every year my company surveys retailers on the business challenges they face in their merchandising operations. For the past three years, respondents have cited unproductive inventory even more frequently than out-of-stocks as a top-three business challenge. In other words, investor pressures have topped customer pressures in driving purchase decision-making.

    The Affordable Care Act Is Working

    Obamacare has done so much for the people of this country and that's why the republican leaders and their sheep hate it. They think government should be, For the Corporations, Of the Corporations and By the Corporations. People don't matter to them. They can't get enough money from the average American to even bother with them.

  • Wheel of Fortune had a college night. There were contestants from three southern schools, Indiana University, University of Alabama and Texas A&M University. The contestant from Indiana had to solve a puzzle for a one million dollar prize and had all the letters to the puzzle showing. The puzzle was "THE MYTHOLOGICAL HERO ACHILLES". Having all the letters showing, he pronounced it "The Mythological Hero A-Chill-Us". Unbelievable for a college student, even from the south, right. Wait, we're not done yet. Later on he tried to solve the puzzle "THE WORLDS FASTEST MAN". The only letters that weren't showing were the M and N in MAN. He go it wrong. Now that's really unbelievable, right? Wait, we're still not done. Later on he had a chance to solve the puzzle "ON THE SPOT DECISION". One problem, he pronounced decision as DICE-SPIN. Now that is certainly more than one could believe, right? I agree but what puts the topper on this story is that the contestant from Indiana University had the most money at the end of the game and beat the other two contestants from Alabama and Texas A&M. I wonder why all the statistics keep telling us the south is the least educated place in the US. LOL

    I almost feel sorry for the poor old geezer. I've never seen anyone so bitter over losing the presidential election. He just rails against Obama about anything now and the poor guy isn't even making any sense anymore. Who knows, he may have had a chance if he hadn't picked the biggest #$%$ of all time as his running mate. In hindsight though, we're lucky he did.

  • it becomes comforting to know that as the Democrats will continue to control the white house for years to come, that all the Supreme Court Justices will all end up being appointed by Democrats

  • AS THE KOCHS TAKE THE SUBSIDIES

    Several potential Republican White House contenders — among them Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee — headline a conference Saturday in Manchester, N.H., hosted by the conservative groups Citizens United and Americans for Prosperity.

    Scheduled speakers also include real estate mogul Donald Trump, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, Utah Sen. Mike Lee and New Hampshire Sen. Kelly Ayotte. The gathering highlights the role of Koch Industries, the giant conglomerate headed by the billionaire brothers Charles and David Koch.

    The Koch-affiliated Americans for Prosperity has already spent millions of dollars on health care-related attack ads aimed at Democratic senators in New Hampshire, North Carolina, Alaska, Colorado, Iowa

    ‘It’s the unofficial kickoff of the 2016 process,’’ said Republican operative Mike Biundo, who managed Rick Santorum’s last presidential campaign.

    so we had the "adelson primary" in vegas with ONE GROUP and the KOCH DEALERS "primary" with another and ALL are REPUBLICANS

    There are some of those so called fools on another board who are as right wing as it gets and hate Obama. The only problem is they now have fracking in their own back yard and are seeing first hand all the problems that come with it. I guess that even though they're far right wing, they still put a little value on their health.

    Obamacare Headline in Rural Arkansas

    by
    ArkshepFollow

    In a real life example of how Obamacare is changing everything, our local newspaper ran an article about the closing of the 9th Street Ministry Medical Clinic.

    "It was announced last week that 9th Street Ministries will be concluding their medical clinic mission, which had been ongoing monthly to offer free medical services to those in need since first starting in 1998. The final day for the medical clinic will be Thursday, April 24, and that will conclude the mission that has been in place for almost 16 years."

    The article tells how the ministry has been operating once a month for years to give people healthcare on a first come, first served basis. This care was provided by volunteers. My mother actually volunteered at the clinic and they would see as many as 300 a day. Many of these people would wait all day for the chance to see a doctor. Most of the patients were people who could not afford to see a doctor, but were not eligible for medicaid or medicare. Why would they close this clinic down?

    "We’ve gone from seeing around 300 people a month on a regular basis, but as people were enrolling in Obamacare, the numbers we were seeing have dropped. We were down to 80 people that came through the medical clinic in February, all the way down to three people at the medical clinic in March. Our services won’t be needed anymore, and this will conclude our mission.”

    We live in one of the most conservative places in Arkansas. The Repub's want to tell those people that once a month waiting all day for a chance to see a doctor was good enough. Thankfully, President Obama did not think so.

    Is Obamacare great or what?

    Gipper, glad to see you right wingers progressing. Your comments are now up to the level of a six year old. Be like Avis and try harder. You may get them up to a seven year old level.

  • Is Obamacare great or what. Yet the hillbillies in Arkansas still complain about Obamacare because they're told to do so.

    Check the facts son. The states who get more back than they contribute are all red as red states can be. Maybe FOX and Rush forgot to mention that to you.

    OOPS, lets make that Bush, The Food Stamp President.

    First, some facts. Take the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP, commonly known as food stamps. PolitiFact has rated Gingrich’s “food stamp president” charge as only half-true. Yes, participation in the program is at a record high, but Bush-era efforts to increase participation and broaden the program “produced consistent increases in the number of average monthly beneficiaries. The number rose in seven out of the eight years of Bush’s presidency — most of which were years not considered recessionary. All told, the number of recipients rose by a cumulative 63 percent during Bush’s eight-year presidency.”

  • Alison Ernst, charged with throwing a sneaker at Clinton during a speech Thursday in Las Vegas, previously made a scene in Colorado at a 2012 hearing for James Holmes, the mass shooter who attacked a movie theater showing a ‘Batman’ movie, killing 12 and wounding 70. Ernst, of Arizona, later filed a lawsuit saying she was obsessed with Holmes and he had invaded her head.

    Twenty months earlier, she arrived in a Colorado courtroom with her head shaved while wearing a red dress before declaring she held evidence “vital to the defense of James Holmes.”

    The Arizona woman later filed an off-the-wall lawsuit detailing her devotion to Holmes, who was accused of killing 12 people and wounding another 70 in an Aurora movie theater.

    “James enters my head like Dennis Quaid in ‘Innerspace’ and he zooms to my heart and plays with it and forces me to care for him,” read the rambling federal court document. “I seek a restraining order to stop Holmes from entering my mind through subliminal messaging and causing me to be obsessed with him on a daily basis.” Les

    welfare?

    Yes, we still have a big problem with welfare in the red states.

  • The idea is to build the best work force you can because good and happy employees are at the root of any company's success. If someone is not happy with their job, they will take the $5000, leave and find another job. Amazon is left with a happy and productive work force.

    Can you imagine WMT doing that? All the stores would have to close the next day because there would be no workers to man them.
