I feel that media must resist doing any polling on Obama, as if we get negative polling on him, it will prevent our Democrat Party from moving forword. Or at least we won't be able to move forword as quickly as we need. We must prevent the news of Obama Fatigue from getting out to the public....

Well, I'm into hammering when it's called for, like putting up siding, or constructing a bookshelf, or especially when trying to make a point.

The hammer in my junk drawer has painted flowers on it, so everyone knows that it's mine.

When our government is involved in the harassment of its citizens and lying in order to get information on its citizens, we have a problem.

Communist would not see it, but most free people will see it for what it is.

Veritas, I'm not neglecting your frustration and disgust, but how are the tax laws of this country to be changed to benefit US people and US business in our now global economy?

Because the politicians make those tax laws, they are the first place to make a stink. Supposedly, they have constituencies to answer to (you, me, etc).

I'd say make a case with your elected officials and/or those responsible for codifying tax law (committees, etc) and let them all know that you're not happy with the current situation (to say the least).

Go for it! You'd probably get more traction with the pols than just posting here on little ol' MDN.

And if you've already been hammering on your elected officials, good on ya!

Can you even imagine what its like to be married to one of these lying pieces of dogdoo in the Democratic party..

Clinton lied and Hillary forgave him.. or did she? If any of you out there are married to a Democrat I suggest you dump them quickly. They are being coached by people who cheat and lie on a daily basis.. Now wiener is running for Mayor. Do you suppose is slogan is "be Frank"?

As early as this morning the IRS was still pulling crap.. The Dems got the answer to the one question from the IG but the Republicans got it when the session started this morning.

It will eventually take an act of someone killing someone to get the attention of the democratic party to be fair.

People who associate themselves with this rouge party will eventually end up in hades..but I guess they will be with their own kind..

RugbyReader He gives us hope?????

He hasn't done one thing since he took office except cost the taxpayers more money. He has spent more then ANY EVERY President ever before him.. I guess its the money he gives you that keeps you sucking on the Government teat and hoping for more free milk.

What really bothers me is you use our Military as a Front for your scum bag escapades.

Your day will come but probably not soon enough for me. Your a disgrace to the United States of America and to the US Marine Corp!!

DustOff, I found a 1959 article (now pdf) by an E.G. Keith posted on Duke University's website.

I read bits & pieces, but taxing authorities seemed more cognizant/ understanding of the risks that small business owners were taking in the startup and operation of their enterprises.

It's a great historical read on the philosophy of taxing small businesses in 1950's USA. "The Impact of Taxation on Small Business"

scholarship . law . duke . edu/cgi/

And you're right. Our economy is already competing globally, whether all will acknowledge that or not. It's a different world now.

Keeping US business taxes high, while other countries' taxes are lower, doesn't serve the US well. It lessens our businesses' competitive edge.

People usually start businesses to make a profit, not to pursue an altruistic path by voluntarily paying more taxes to a gov't enamored with redistribution of wealth.

Sorry, but like they say on Shark Tank, I'm out.

Veritas, I'm surprised you just featured Apple under the microscope.

Isn't there room for Microsoft, Dell, or others? Surely they have engaged in similar business practices?

"Corporate CEOs are raiding and draining traditional pension plans for millions of workers who are left without their expected and earned pension payments on retirement."

I can go one better than Veritas...

"WASHINGTON, Feb. 3, 2013 ? The $19.4 trillion sitting in personal retirement accounts like the 401K may be too tempting an apple for a government that is quite broke, both monetarily and morally. The U.S. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau director Richard Cordray recently mentioned these accounts in a recent interview, stating “That’s one of the things we’ve been exploring and are interested in, in terms of whether and what authority we have.”

"This agency, created by the 2010 Dodd-Frank-Act, is very concerned about how safe your retirement savings are."

I'll bet that agency is concerned.

A spokesman for U.S. automaker General Motors said the company paid no federal income tax for 2011 despite earnings of $13 billion since 2009.

"We did not pay federal income tax last year," said GM spokesman Jim Cain.

The Detroit News reported Friday GM earned profits of $1 billion in January through March but may not have a federal tax bill to pay "for many more years."

The tax-free years are the result of GM's stint in bankruptcy in 2009

Government Motors.. And their CEO is a friend of the Obamas

Missy 1 Obama was behind it all.. The truth is now coming out..

The White House Visitors Log reveals that President Barack Obama met with Internal Revenue Service (IRS) union boss Colleen Kelley on March 31, 2010—the day before the Inspector General's report says the IRS began its scheme to target tea party and conservative groups.

On yet another occasion, Kelley’s presence at the White House was followed shortly afterwards by the President issuing Executive Order 13522. A presidential directive that gave the anti-Tea Party NTEU — the IRS union — a greater role in the day-to-day operation of the IRS than it had already — which was considerable.

Since the IRS tea party targeting scandal erupted, Kelley has gone quiet.

Obama is into this up to his neck. Its all going to unravel..

If somebody's opinions aren't your cup of tea, Veritas, then let them steep in them. (Puns intended.)

Your absolute disgust and disdain for others' opinions doesn't really win others to your point of view.

Unless disdain and disgust is the goal...then I'd say you're achieving in a mighty way.

What is it that DustOff says? "Winning hearts and minds?"

Are any in the Tea Party worth it to you, Veritas?
