Business Republicans Stick With Trump Because Their Donors Get All the Goodies - 10-09-2019, 09:24 AM

The Republicans are dead set in the People getting stuck with all the bills as is evidenced by this rollback of the law. How the Republican base
believes they are good for the country is truly amazing. They are going along with the rape and asking for more of it.

Never mind the pilfering of SS and other funds. Its just fine to rip off the people because they don't believe in people.

They believe in the corporation. They made it possible that the corporation has the same rights and even more than people so don't be surprised when you get
the bill and the corporation gets it free.

Its their own brand of Socialism only its called Corporatism and is a step toward another form of government that does not resemble one with free market Capitalism.

People meet your Slave Masters. The Republicans.

Republicans Stick With Trump Because Their Donors Are Getting All the Goodies

From Esquire

Man, I can't tell you how many economically anxious former millworkers and coal miners I talked to in in 2016 who told me, flat out, "Man, I can't wait to vote for Trump so all those American corporations can hide their money overseas again." From Bloomberg:

Treasury Department officials are considering rolling back a tax rule aimed at preventing American companies from moving money offshore to avoid U.S. taxes, according to several people familiar with discussions.

The Treasury is looking at regulations intended to prevent American firms from lowering their U.S. tax bills by shifting income to their offshore branches that they can loan to their domestic branches and deduct the interest off their Internal Revenue Service bills. The department is also contemplating repealing them entirely to replace them with something more business-friendly.

The move could make it easier for companies to use accounting tactics to minimize their U.S. earnings and inflate their foreign profits, which are frequently taxed at rates lower than the current 21% domestic corporate levy. The existing regulations were aimed at stopping U.S. companies from moving their headquarters to a lower-tax country, known as a corporate inversion.

We should've stopped wondering why Republicans stick by the president* months ago. They stick with him because they and their donor class are getting all the goodies they've wanted back ever since they crashed the economy in 2008. They are the real Base and, in his rare lucid moments, even the president* knows it.

Jesus Christ, dude!
You really need to get on some meds. And I'm being perfectly serious and sincere.
You are NOT a healthy man. Seek assistance before it's too late.
Not only will it save you, but it'll make this place a much better; like is was before you and pangit showed up.

As if anyone even reads "Esquire" or gives a S*** what they think??

Maybe Robin is an aspiring metrosexual?

I just spent all morning troubleshooting a very fickle Linux install.....I wish I had that 3 hours of my life back..... The 30 seconds I spent typing this post after skimming the article was an even bigger waste of my life.


If you tolerate this, then your children will be next.


I have never quoted someone in my signature....but I found such a shallow idiotic comment like this worthy!

I wonder what went wrong under Obummer, when Jeffery Imelt paid nothing for taxes from GE, and got about 3 trillion in alternative energy contracts from the U.S. government for projects on foreign soil.
google didn't pay $#!t under Obummer either...

Never thought I would miss Wileydog and Jeff.

It's incredible the things some people believe and the moral compass they live by.

There is absolutely no middle ground any more like there used to be.

Jeff just decided that he had enough of dealing with stupid people. He is actually a great guy and an inventor (he sent me one of his pool-related products for my opinion and to see if I could help get it into the market).
He just got tired of arguing with people who think of themselves as sheep- people like robin and sofie.

I disagreed with CJ on plenty, but he has integrity and intelligently articulates his positions...unlike typical idiots who have gone well past their normal stupidity into full retard mode again and again with their insane TDS. And yeah, getting away for a while is something I can understand.

While he and I have yet to meet for pool, brew, and vittles, I've spent a couple hours on the phone with him. Trust me when I tell you that he is a man of great integrity, decency, personality, and character.
BTW- Thank you!
