  • Google saves $2B in taxes by sheltering $10B in revenue in Bermuda

    Google avoided about $2 billion in global income taxes last year by shifting $9.8 billion in revenue into a Bermuda shell company, Bloomberg reported. That level is almost double the total from three years ago, Bloomberg said, citing a Nov. 21 regulatory filing by a Google subsidiary in the Netherlands. And it allowed Google to cut its overall tax rate almost in half. Google's action -- moving about 80 percent of its total pretax profit from 2011 to tax-free Bermuda -- isn't illegal. On the contrary, many companies have taken similar steps in recent years to avoid paying steep taxes....

  • Arizona was once tolerant of illegal immigrants. What happened?

    l.a. times ^ | 8/1/10 | Anna Gorman and Nicholas Riccardi
    Analysts suggest it was a perfect storm of demographic shifts, a scary criminal element, the recession and a new governor. Reporting from Phoenix — Arizona has made a name for itself as the state with the harshest policies against illegal immigration. But as few as six years ago, this border state was among the nation's most welcoming of illegal immigrants. Back then, its two Republican U.S. senators and one of its congressmen were among the strongest advocates of legalizing millions of illegal residents in the country. Mexico was the state's largest trading partner, and the governor boasted of her warm...
  • Obama - Huey Long "Sharing our Wealth" reincarnated?

    Huey Long: Now in the third year of his administration, we find more of our people unemployed than at any other time. We find our houses empty and our people hungry, many of them half-clothed and many of them not clothed at all. Mr. Hopkins announced twenty-two millions on the dole, a new high-water mark in that particular sum, a few weeks ago. We find not only the people going further into debt, but that the United States is going further into debt. The states are going further into debt, and the cities and towns are even going into bankruptcy....

    Remember that guy you went to high school with? You know, the one with the rich parents. The one who drove a Porsche to school and wore the slickest clothing. The one with a pool in the backyard and the Xbox and the tennis court. You thought he was a jerk then. He's still a jerk now. Only now, he's president of the United States. His parents didn't buy him the SUV and the tickets to the concerts and the jet rides to New York. You did. As the rest of the country suffers through a real unemployment rate of...
  • After election, Iran moves to remove subsidies

    Press TV ^ | July 8, 2009
    As President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad plans his second term activities, an Iranian parliamentary commission finishes work on a controversial bill to redistribute energy subsidies among various income groups. "The parliament's special commission will pass the subsidy redistribution bill by the end of the week," the panel's spokesman, Kazem Delkhosh, said Tuesday. The move, which comes shortly after the re-election of President Ahmadinejad, will pave the way for Iranian lawmakers to vote on the bill in the near future. The bill is part of a reform plan the government seeks to execute to generate economic growth by lowering the lofty annual sums...
  • Hill Republican: Stimulus aids illegal immigrants

    AP ^ | 2009-01-29
    WASHINGTON: A top Republican congressional aide says the $800 billion-plus economic stimulus measure could steer government checks to illegal immigrants. Republican officials are concerned that the Democratic-written legislation makes people who came to the United States illegally eligible for tax credits of $500 per worker and $1,000 per couple. A House-passed version of the bill and one making its way through the Senate both disqualify nonresident aliens from receiving the credits. But neither requires a worker to have a Social Security number to get the credits. An economic aid measure enacted in February 2008 that sent rebates to most wage...

    Associated Press ^ | December 05, 2008 | PHILIP ELLIOTT,
    Democrats carrying significant campaign debt after winning a string of House and Senate races are grumbling about President-elect Barack Obama's financial reserves, saying the party's leader is sitting on a pile of cash while Democratic leaders are broke. Obama's organization retains some $30 million after his successful presidential bid, but it's unclear how the Democratic president-in-waiting might use the money. Members of his party are doing their best to appeal for the funds without appearing greedy, ungrateful or hostile to their new leader.

    The hardships we endure in these times, starting with 9/11, make "change" an inviting word. However, "change" can still be horribly negative if the wrong choices are made. This generation is far removed from the Great Depression and World War 2. They simply have no idea how bad things could get. We are being faced with the greatest economic crisis since the Great Depression, one of worldwide impact. In making the choices about the future, it is imperative that we understand how we got here. How did this economic crisis occur? Who is responsible for the mortgage meltdown? Before you...
  • Salena Zito: Closing the deal [Pennsylvania may decide race]

    Townhall ^ | November 02, 2008 | Salena Zito
    The narrative of this historic presidential election has come down to which candidate will close the deal and win the trust of Pennsylvania voters. From the outside looking in, Pennsylvania has become a metaphor for all that is wrong with our country when it comes to race -- especially those of its Democrats who are soft on or wary of Barack Obama. Yet on the inside, Pennsylvania is far from its broad-brush portrayal as racist. It is not the color of the candidate; it is the culture he represents. Say what you will, Obama's "spread the wealth" tongue-slip hit home...

    Barak Obama says that he wants to increase taxes on people and business' that make more than $250,000 a year. This sounds ok to those of us who make less than that until you look at it logically and to me it starts to look really bad. First, my utility company makes more than $250,000 a year so there taxes will go up and that cost will be passed on to the comsumer -(us)- to make up for lost profits, and lets face it, if they didn't increase there price's they would have to cut back on spending and jobs...

    Barack Obama doesn't simply want to "spread the wealth around" here in America: He's on record as favoring redistribution on a global scale. As the Democrat explained last year in Foreign Affairs, he thinks we need to be "sharing more of our riches to help those in need" around the world and promised to double American foreign assistance. He also proposed a multibillion-dollar Global Education Fund to eliminate what he calls the "global education deficit." Obama has already acted on these beliefs. In the Senate, he co-sponsored the Global Poverty Act, which calls on the US to allocate 7/10ths of...

    Joe the Plumber was simply minding his own business when Barack Hussein Obama walked up to him and started talking to him. There are two things that are remarkable about his conversation with Barack; first of all, Obama didn’t need a translator when speaking with someone from Middle America. Secondly, Joe asked the Messianic Presidential candidate why he was so intent on raising taxes and punishing those who are successful. The words that fell from Barack’s mouth were the sort of answer that would have won him a spot on the couch with Beavis and Butthead. He told Joe that...
