  • Many of America’s largest corporations shift a surprising portion of their profits overseas to avoid paying taxes. Even more surprisingly, that’s a legal thing to do.

    I'm convinced this is how the GOP operates: cut funding for state/federal programs so they function poorly, say, "Hey, look, see, it sucks. Privatization is the way to go!" I mean, just look at the IRS. The head has been asking for more funding for YEARS and the funding just keeps getting cut. Now just last week their systems went down. The head of the IRS said this is what would happen if they didn't get more funding. If we properly funded the IRS, we could contact them better and submitting taxes would be more streamlined. I mean, the IRS has all your info. They could easily just do what other countries like Germany does--send a pre-filled form through the mail, have you look over it to confirm, sign it, and send it back. Easy! But no, our taxes should never go to fund things that might benefit the average person. Rich people need more money, the poor souls.

      * in case the point was lost, Government takes a percentage of your income, not a percentage of your taxes. They will ALWAYS take 100% of taxes. In most cases, they take more than 100%, which is why we get refunds.

    yea you can prosper from crime if you´re rich enough.. we´re 1 world right? how about having the same rules or laws for certain
    things all over the world? like company/giant restrictions and laws and perhaps taxes? or just turn it into a donation based
    system? tax fraud through loopholes.. can giants ever be satisfied? undermining the governments and media? mutiny/hostile
    takeover? trump´s a company man. the lengths that some people will go to has always surprised me.. perhaps it shouldn´t..

    John, it bothers me that you bring up closing loopholes, but you don’t mention how the government is not gonna do that because most of The government makes money based off investments.
    I think all members of The cabinet should make 100k (+.02% every 4 years to adjust for inflation) non taxed.
    And be constantly audited every year in office and randomly later throughout the rest of their life. Family members too.
    It’s a sacrifice but you’re supposed to be doing it for the American people not lining your own pocket.
    Money & politics do not go together, that’s what breeds corruption!

    You can hate on big companies all you want, but Oliver DELIBERATELY didn't mention mom & pops, small, medium businesses which benefited the most from this cut. Family stores that generate 100k a year will have a lot more cash left in their pockets, to invest back into their business or do whatever the fuck they want.

    It has been proven over and over that when you give tax breaks to the rich they don’t spend money, the corporations don’t stimulate the economy, they keep it the money and the economy goes to shit. Ronald Reagan did the same thing in the 80’s and the economy went to shit, I remember it very well. Reagan was the first president I voted for, he was a great, GREAT man but a not so good president.

    Its so dumb to see gouvernment always banking on corporations to create jobs, why not take that money they owe the country and create new jobs yourself, isnt it better to have a stable gouverment provide job on lets say infrastructure projects, education or sorts then an unstable company job that gets booted the next time their stock value takes a nosedive. They basically pay these companies loads of money to create very expensive jobs, cause these jobs would have been a lot cheaper and more if you just use the money directly, without making some fucking shareholders richer also.

    We've known for years what happens when rich people get tax cuts, its called trickle down economics because the trickle is what most people get out of it. No problem with successful people making lots of money, just as long as they pay more taxes than their secretary.

    • Jedi Revan
      Jedi Revan 23 hours ago

      There is no evidence to support this. This is literally the "warlords" argument, and it has no merit.
      As for proof I have given quotes not only from a source that I believe to be politically unbiased (they publish such documents for prospective investors to know what they are getting into, not a political opinion), as well as quotes from the paper by Mr Leeson that you linked to. Reading the paper, I saw multiple flaws and inaccuracies that would never be published in a serious journal. He literally talked about how bad it was while saying that its the best thing to happen to the country. The only part that is anywhere close to stable has a functional government. Look at any news footage of Somalia and you would see. With all of the different governments and interests, you could count on someone calling out bad reporting on a country that is widely covered. We have pirates launching off the coast of Somalia and attacking our ships, a proven fact.
      As for my statement of how bad things could be in the middle east, middle eastern history is an interest of mine, one of many.

      " ISIS would not have grown nearly as large or killed nearly as many people if Iraq and Syria had a stable government."
      You have no self-awareness, do you? Do you even read what you're typing? ISIS is a state, genius.
      " The only reason why it isn't worse is aid that your tax money is paying for. "
      Citation still needed. I'm calling this out for the religious BS that it is.
      "As for your giving the impression that you don't believe that warlords exist"
      Never said that. I said that the argument was bunk, which it is.

    • Jedi Revan
      Jedi Revan Day ago

      I also wanted to say thanks, I always enjoy a good debate that doesn't turn into a complete mess. Talking to each other is the only shot we have to survive.

    • Jedi Revan
      Jedi Revan Day ago

      Somalia is a failed state which was sent into chaos by corrupt leaders, a failed oppressive super power, and a bunch of power hungry war lords. In the aftermath of the Cold War, that would sound like half the world except that they had a government to do a halfway decent job holding things together. ISIS would not have grown nearly as large or killed nearly as many people if Iraq and Syria had a stable government. Thank god Bush didn't invade Syria or something. We'd all be dead or worshiping Allah at gun point if we did. Full respect to Muslims btw (believe in a higher power and tolerance).
      The idea that a man who didn't even read his own facts could write a paper, let alone get a job at a university is beyond me. I was reading his paper earlier and it was the most embarrassingly poorly written thing I have read in years. He spent half the time telling me about how bad things were. The only reason why it isn't worse is aid that your tax money is paying for. The only successful part of the country is an autonomous region called Somaliland complete with a pro west multi party government, almost no violence, a thriving economy and tourism, and are keeping Punt at bay, safe haven for pirates and terrorists.
      As for your giving the impression that you don't believe that warlords exist, believe the World Bank, a conservative institution who cares more about money than politics (read the above comments for proof, or the link I gave you the pages). We have had aid workers, peace keepers, reporters, observers, etc; in the country for almost two decades, so we have a good idea by now how things work.

    • James Adams

      " If you don't want to live under this government than go to another country"
      No. This is not an argument in favor of government. The "you can just leave" is a red herring.
      " they have ruled over large parts of this land for centuries which is more than enough for a government to claim ownership over land"
      This also isn't an argument for the moral claim of ownership. It is an appeal to force. The use of force is not what makes ownership legitimate. Otherwise thieves would have valid claims of ownership because they successfully robbed and maintained their loot.
      "Anyone who look at Somalia would see that it is a complete mess with no easy way to clean it up until they establish a strong and stable government."
      No, a statist would say that. A rational person would say that Somalia was a case in the failure of government and isn't fixed with more government.

    The Federal Income Tax is a lie and should be Illegal if not unconstitutional. Taking money offshore should illegal, and tax exemption on big corps should be always be collected at 35-50% retroactively. The military should not be in constant invasion mode taking resources from poor COuntries after the US and other Govs. have sold weapons to factions on the region to make them fight and then hypocritically "intervene" invading them to "settle down the conflict", retreat from other Countries and not having US Bases there, reducing the spending and concentrating those on VA, Universal Health Care and paying good to teachers making the minimum wage according to the economy for people to live well, don't give tax breaks to the rich, and don't allow prices to go too high. Gov should be controlled and auditable by The People, @Gov anyone jobs should never have much security, you do a bad job, you're out and maybe to trial. The real Boss is The People, they should decide how money is well spend, and if the gov comes with a suggestion, will have to justify why, after The People have voted on it, it might proceed

This crock of Sh*t that it is entitlement, paid for from taxes is a plain, bold-faced LIE! When you work for someone, you get a paycheck. You see monies taken out of your pay that go to FICA. This money, taken from YOUR paycheck is MATCHED by your employer for YOUR benefit & YOUR Future! PERIOD!

      No, he's right and you're wrong. The amount you and your employer pay in no way covers the amounts that retirees are taking out today, let alone what you'll pull out in retirement. The general fund is used to pay for Social Security. The government has also raided SS too, but that's another topic.

    When are you liberal socialists going to recognize that businesses don't pay taxes, people pay taxes. A corporate tax is just another expense to a corporation like any other. If it can't be made up in higher prices or lower wages it comes out of dividends- and just so you know, ~40% of dividends are paid out to pension funds, mutual funds and life insurance companies, i.e. the retirement hopes of the middle class. Charging income tax on corporations also validates treating a corporation as a fictional person rather than the government granted privilege of limited liability that it is. There's no magic source of money that you can steal to pay for your pet social engineering projects.

    • James Adams
      James Adams 2 days ago +1

      No, they do not. There is no way possible to tax a nation into prosperity. At best, a nation that is already prosperous wouldn't lose much if the government had low operating costs and handled only goods/services that were actually wanted in the way that people want them. And that's if they already have the wealth to tax in the first place. If a nation is not already wealthy then it isn't going to become wealthy through taxation itself.

Yet again he and his special panel guest went after liberals and universities (more specifically the liberal arts) for their attacks on free speech (laughable-this is the most inflated "problem" happening on universities. We all know every professor wakes up thinking how they can best infest the minds of impressionable young adults with liberal propaganda. Ugh.). First, he put on Berry Weiss a few weeks ago to complain about evil universities committing mind control with "safe spaces". Now just this week he gave a platform to right-wing pseudoscience conspiracy theorist Jacob Peterson. Peterson lectured Alex Wagner on how to raise her child, and pointed to universities as being the primary source of attacks on free thought and free speech - and then he and Bill, two white guys, proceeded to do yet more lecturing to liberals on how they raise children...while talking about narcissism. Bill needs to be called out for his hypocrisy. Bill would be the first [person defending (and rightfully so) a professor who tells a creationist student that, ah...no you're wrong, evolution is real and no, humans were not the spawn of Adam and Eve.

      "Bottom line is that Peterson is not even very intelligent."
      Says the person who hasn't refuted one word he's said and can't even get his first name right. It's pretty telling that you have to attack a person's intelligence but aren't capable of arguing with the substance of what he's said.
      " I'm sorry, but you don't possess the basic grok (yes that's a word, I went to a university) to have this conversation - which you want to turn into basic Fox News anti-SJW talking points. "
      Says the dumbass who hasn't created any argument and instead projects.
      "Go learn the art of synthesis (the basic tool od knowledge - bridging different ideas to form your own) and then we can talk. "
      Says the dumbass who only projects.

      Bottom line is that Peterson is not even very intelligent. He sounds very simple to a trained ear. The inconsistencies are apparent almost immediately. He's a self-help guru with a political bent. So for me, this debate is about whether a turd doesn't stink or not - it's futile. To anyone who has a decent I.Q. he sounds like a somewhat overly obsessed high school student having a debate on a high school level. I'm sorry, but you don't possess the basic grok (yes that's a word, I went to a university) to have this conversation - which you want to turn into basic Fox News anti-SJW talking points. Go learn the art of synthesis (the basic tool od knowledge - bridging different ideas to form your own) and then we can talk. Oh, and next time I listen to a highly intelligent person who has information to back up their complex ideas, a skill set they learned at a university, I will remind myself that they have just been brainwashed. Ugh. But hey, whatever floats your boat.

      "HURR DURR I went to my echo chamber and my leftist buddy agreed with me!"
      Oh the brilliance of arguing with people who fully agree with you and employ no rational arguments whatsoever.

      Well, I wrote the same message on Sam Seder's Majority Report youtube vid and guess what. He listened to me and now has done a segment ripping his appearance apart. Oh the joy. Bye now. Write whatever you want. I wont be wasting my time reading you Ad hominems.

      Yes, I do. And no, I haven't. I'm not dismissing your incoherent idiocy by merely labeling you a dumbass. I attacked your arguments directly and then called you a dumbass. There's a difference. It's not a fallacy when I have proof that you're in fact being a dumbass.
      Saying "is ludicrous" over and over again doesn't make an argument. It just further proves that you're a dumbass. Speaking of begging the question, that's what you're doing here. That's a fallacy, dumbass.

    This guy is a total idiot. Notice they don't post the fawning video of Comey, given Comey is now in serious trouble for leaking classified data. In his own admission.

    I hear what your saying but now what? You talk to sheep who make noise while you point shit out. Its like telling a donkey it has to carry a extra basket up a hill. The donkey doesn’t give a fuck cause its a donkey. Your wasting your fucking time. Motherfuckers are stupid and I shouldn’t have entertained your B.S. cause its just entertainment with no exit strategy. Just point shit out and hope for the best. This is where we are now.
