2009 Corporate taxes as percentage of GDP, worldwide. So don't feed me the nonsense about how corporations are overtaxed in America.
Job Creator, Onerous Taxes, Demand Job, American Corporations, Allowing Corporations, Corporate Taxes, Real Job, Create Jobs, Tiny Tax
It's pretty clear that American corporations are not paying onerous taxes -- either as a group or individually. They actually pay very little in taxes, and they are sitting on trillions of dollars in profits (billions individually). If allowing corporations to pay a tiny tax was the way to create jobs, then they should be creating those jobs right now. But it doesn't and they aren't -- because increased demand is the only real job creator (in spite of what the Republicans say).

This Bill Moyers & Michael Winship quotation is from their article: “Corporate Greed Is Poisoning America — Literally.” The article lists a number of instances in which human beings’ lives and health are put at risk to increase profits for deep-pocketed corporations. For example: So far, the government has done next to nothing [about the hazardous chemicals making workers sick at poultry plants]. No research into the possible side effects, no comprehensive record-keeping on illnesses. “Instead,” the Post reports, “they review data provided by chemical manufacturers.” What’s more, the Department of Agriculture is about to allow the production lines to move even faster, by as much as 25 percent, which means more chemicals, more exposure, more sickness. Think of that and think of the 85,000 industrial chemicals available today – only a handful have been tested for safety. Ian Urbina writes in The New York Times, “Hazardous chemicals have become so ubiquitous that scientists now talk about babies being born pre-polluted, sometimes with hundreds of synthetic chemicals showing up in their blood.”
No more corporate tax cuts!! Talk about welfare queens! How easy would it be to balance the budget if we cut off subsidies to oil companies? And if our government officials retired to social security and medicare, would things be different?

Mitt is so different (about 180 degrees) from his late father. George told the facts about Viet Nam, and that cost him the Republican nomination for president and his entire political career. Mitt is a typical Republican slimeball and would have been one of those who crucified George had he not been his son. Too bad the integrity and sense of honor wasn't hereditary.
My husband actually applauded the television when Elizabeth Warren gave this speech. She was fucking ELECTRIC.
I adore Mass. Senator Elizabeth Warren for her strength & courage to say things to the big boys that most wouldn't even dare to.~M
Elizabeth Warren quote. "No Governor Romney, Corporations are NOT people. Paople have hearts, they have kids, they get jobs, they get sick, they cry, they dance, they live, they love and they die and that matters. That matters because we don't run this country for corporations, we run it for people."

Truth be told... Cases in point are the invisible WMD of Saddam Hussein, the atrocities and broken treaties with the American Indians, what happened with the incarceration of countless thousands of innocent Japanese Americans during WW2, etc. These speak to the evilness and corruption of the greedy and powerful...
I've known this for a while as a US citizen, but it is true for all nations and their history books. The same story will look completely different for opposing countries. You can't always trust the picture painted for you when the painter has an agenda.
I had a history teacher who actually knew this and used his own specific history books to teach us because he didn't want us to learn the bias
How objective are secondary/tertiary historical sources, such as History books? Should they be objective, and if so, how would we ensure that? If not, what criteria should be employed in selecting what to put in?
Too true! I once had a history teacher who made us watch what Columbus did, and how the natives Americans had huge civilizations many years before Europeans came. How the English, and Spaniards decimated their cultures. None of that was in our history books.
Wow, well said!!! . . #politics . . #economy

How to really clean up the mess we are in. The Rich will say they are the job creators, and say supply side (AKA trickle-down) economics works, but it works only for them. Their propaganda flies in the face of Econ 101 which is supply/demand.
The real job creators, the middle class. All the great new ideas originated in middle class garages: Amazon, Ebay, Microsoft, etc. Billionaires have no need to go out on a limb for a new idea.

“A handful of billionaires own a significant part of the wealth of America and have enormous control over our economy. What the Supreme Court did in Citizens United is to say to these same billionaires: “You own and control the economy, you own Wall Street, you own the coal companies, you own the oil companies. Now, for a very small percentage of your wealth, we’re going to give you the opportunity to own the United States government.” And that’s why it must be overturned. Sen. Bernie Sanders
