How does U.S. legislation extent to foreign havens?


It doesn't.

It's like saying New York has a 'right' the California's money.

So stick your head in the sand and refuse to see what Bernie is and just say what you want him to be.
Got it.

Sorry that he wants to educate people and give them health care, what a totalitarian nightmare!

Ya sucks when the rich send that money out, you know taking it out of our economy.

But it is probably the immigrants that do it more so we should focus on them.

They didn't 'send' it out.

Why do people think the US is the only country in the world where our business's make money?

And once again I don't know why people are IGNORING the FACTA.

www.irs.gov...

5 YEARS OLD now.

I so wish people would actually READ the thing.

And Read those links:

The issue isn't what Bernie and others want to happen but, the means by which they want them to happen.

To convert the judicial system into a violator of property rights instead of a defender of them is destructive to society and completely wrong.

All socialisms must be totalitarian (if they intend to deliver on their promises) because it is required in order to use the force of the state to redistribute personal property.

Jefferson abolished income taxes.

Doesn't this country have any Jeffersons left ?

Or do all we have left are the Sanders'.

OK, so we know about these problem companies and we know about the tax system problems.

Now what's the solution start-to-finish?





Asked you a similar question in one of your own threads and I'm still waiting on an answer.

Bernie seems to have some answers. The questions are hard ones and the answers are equally tough, but how can we propigate an economic system based on cutting the heads off of chickens and kazoos when "too big to fail" fails?


Very, very tough indeed.

I like how Mises timelessly described the situation:


The main objective of praxeology and economics is to substitute consistent, correct ideologies for the contradictory tenets of popular eclecticism. There is no other means of preventing social disintegration and of safeguarding the steady improvement of human conditions than those provided by reason. Men must try to think through all the problems involved up to the point beyond which a human mind cannot proceed farther. They must never acquiesce in any solutions conveyed by older generations, they must always question anew every theory and every theorem, they must never relax in their endeavors to brush away fallacies and to find the best possible cognition. They must fight error by unmasking spurious doctrines and by expounding truth.

The problems involved are purely intellectual and must be dealt with as such. It is disastrous to shift them to the moral sphere and to dispose of supporters of opposite ideologies by calling them villains. It is vain to insist that what we are aiming at is good and what our adversaries want is bad. The question to be solved is precisely what is to be considered as good and what as bad. The rigid dogmatism peculiar to religious groups and to Marxism results only in irreconcilable conflict. It condemns beforehand all dissenters as evildoers, it calls into question their good faith, it asks them to surrender unconditionally. No social cooperation is possible where such an attitude prevails.

No better is the propensity, very popular nowadays, to brand supporters of other ideologies as lunatics. Psychiatrists are vague in drawing a line between sanity and insanity. It would be preposterous for laymen to interfere with this fundamental issue of psychiatry. However, it is clear that if the mere fact that a man shares erroneous views and acts according to his errors qualifies him as mentally disabled, it would be very hard to discover an individual to which the epithet sane or normal could be attributed. Then we are bound to call the past generations lunatic because their ideas about the problems of the natural sciences and concomitantly their techniques differed from ours. Coming generations will call us lunatics for the same reason. Man is liable to error. If to err were the characteristic feature of mental disability, then everybody should be called mentally disabled.

Neither can the fact that a man is at variance with the opinions held by the majority of his contemporaries qualify him as a lunatic. Were Copernicus, Galileo, and Lavoisier insane? It is the regular course of history that a man conceives new ideas, contrary to those of other people. Some of these ideas are later embodied in the system of knowledge accepted by public opinion as true. Is it permissible to apply the epithet "sane" only to boors who never had ideas of their own and to deny it to all innovators?

If you have a message at least be a realist out of it. With all the lobbyists and corporate bribes you can't just ignore the corporations part in all this.

They have an exceptionally powerful influence on our government and it's policies and you're not so ignorant as to not realize it.

Until you can argue while not ignoring the elephant in the room completely, you might as well hang up your hat.

I personally have never been so enthusiastic about a candidate, not to mention the possibility of real change, then with Bernie... I say it's about time!


Maybe that should be his slogan -- Hope and Change. No voter has ever totes believed that a candidate would bring Hope and Change before. So I am very much really impressed with your confidence in Bernie -- truly I am.

Fo sho.

Who is ignoring it ?

That is what Sanders is all about. Lobbying the masses to get in to office so he can 'rob from the rich, and give to the poor' so they can go out, and buy more stuff.

Meanwhile INCREASING the cost of goods and services,putting MORE people out of work, and INCREASING the tax burden on ALL of us.

Guess it's just better to bribe the gullible in to thinking things are going to be so 'awesome' under a Sanders regime with MORE free stuff.

When the reverse will be true.

Bernie is a Communist.

Nope.
He's not.

He's a Democratic Socialist.

But, I understand, lots of you think that he's a Communist.
Doesn't make it true.


Changing how you label Bernie doesn't change what he is...a communist and a totalitarian.


Nothing in his history, personal, voting, legislative supports your 'speculation' that he is a 'communist' or a 'totalitarian' in any way, shape or form; quite the opposite in fact. You are delusional - or being paid to say those things by 'totalitarian'/'fascist' entities.

(Just gonna leave this one thing here. This thing that Bernie wrote: )


The Wall Street leaders whose recklessness and illegal behavior caused this terrible recession are now lecturing the American people on the need for courage to deal with the nation’s finances and deficit crisis. Before telling us why we should cut Social Security, Medicare and other vitally important programs, these CEOs might want to take a hard look at their responsibility for causing the deficit and this terrible recession.

Our Wall Street friends might also want to show some courage of their own by suggesting that the wealthiest people in this country, like them, start paying their fair share of taxes. They might work to end the outrageous corporate loopholes, tax havens and outsourcing provisions that their lobbyists have littered throughout the tax code – contributing greatly to our deficit.

Many of the CEO’s who signed the deficit-reduction letter run corporations that evaded at least $34.5 billion in taxes by setting up more than 600 subsidiaries in the Cayman Islands and other offshore tax havens since 2008. As a result, at least a dozen of the companies avoided paying any federal income taxes in recent years, and even received more than $6.4 billion in tax refunds from the IRS since 2008.

Several of the companies received a total taxpayer bailout of more than $2.5 trillion from the Federal Reserve and the Treasury Department.

Many of the companies also have outsourced hundreds of thousands of American jobs to China and other low wage countries, forcing their workers to receive unemployment insurance and other federal benefits. In other words, these are some of the same people who have significantly caused the deficit to explode over the last four years.

Like I said, black and white, you can admit no wrong doing on both sides of this fence. Therefore you're clearly a propagandist. I can at least admit that there's two sides and not every corporation is run by monsters. You can't even admit even slightly that the corporations with their armies of lobbyists are in anyway responsible for the state of things.

It's all some old dude that's been screaming the same things for years and ignored up until now. Hint, he's been screaming the same message, it's not him that created this awakening. People start noticing for a reason.

Wasn't Wall Street that did that. It was our govenment,

Wasn't the CEO's fault.

It was POLITICIANS.

Again Still haven't seen one word of TRUTH from Sanders.

to that I will add from www.rollingstone.com... by Matt Taibbi regarding Goldman Sachs but applicable to all of Wall Street and my new favorite quote:


The world's most powerful investment bank is a great vampire squid wrapped around the face of humanity, relentlessly jamming its blood funnel into anything that smells like money. In fact, the history of the recent financial crisis, which doubles as a history of the rapid decline and fall of the suddenly swindled dry American empire, reads like a Who's Who of Goldman Sachs graduates.
