Entry: "Them there tax dodgers..."

First, on my return to the flow, a Thank You to all my family who asked about me. I am fine, just had to take a breather to deal with some health and personal issues. Much love and respect to all of you who stopped by and took the time to leave me a flow, I love you.


OK, I was reading in my favorite rag the other day about how most major American corporations avoid paying hardly any income tax at all to the guvmint. They set up all these fancy-pancy off-shore or international corporate subsidiaries that not only are multi-layered with various foreign contacts, but often are shielded from American tax laws, thus making them extremely hard to track or hold accountable so they can pay their fair share. All this stuff is just straight up #@%&*. First "they" (read:corporate robber barons) funnel all the jobs off-shore or to third world countries, then "they" hide the billions that they rake in from the cheap labor so "they" don't have to pay a nickel on it, all the while "they" claim to the American public that "they" going broke....crazy.

Get yours!! I hope everyone who is entitled to get something back from the guvmint come taxtime gets double of what they were expecting. And I also hope that everyone who wasn't expecting to get something back from Uncle Sam, gets a letter informing them of some kind of massive guvmint mistake and that Lo and Behold you'll be getting paid too!..hehehe, always good to end my posts on a wishful note, eh?

I'm out!

Welcome back Greggy! big grin It's so nice to vibe with you again, and yes it's nice that I finally found my flow. I was danglin' for a bit. Thanks for your tag words.
About the corporations. Well, as a former guvmint procurement and requisitions manager, I could tell you some things our own governement does that would really rock your world, so I ain't mad at 'em. I think our government tax system needs to be revamped anyway.
Love ya too, Greggy!
