09 North Orange Street in Wilmington is a nondescript two-story building, yet is home to Apple, American Airlines, Walmart and presidential candidates
There aren’t many things upon which Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump agree, especially as they court very different Delaware voters ahead of a primary on Tuesday. But the candidates for president share an affinity for the same nondescript two-storey office building in Wilmington. A building that has become famous for helping tens of thousands of companies avoid hundreds of millions of dollars in tax through the so-called “Delaware loophole”.
The receptionist at 1209 North Orange Street isn’t surprised that a journalist has turned up unannounced on a sunny weekday afternoon.
“You know I can’t speak to you,” she says. A yellow post-it note on her computer screen reads “MEDIA: Chuck Miller” with the phone number of the company’s director of corporate communications. Miller can’t answer many questions either, except to say that the company does not advise clients on their tax affairs.
The Guardian is not the first media organising to turn up at the offices of Corporation Trust Centre, and it’s unlikely to be the last.
I can't believe how fooled the people are this election season...

I think he's a good honest man, but also a complete idiot and candy ass. Letting Erica Garner make a video was the final nail in his coffin. Her father was a criminal (30x a criminal, not just loose smokes he was a dirt bag) and it just rubbed me the wrong way. Sanders is a meow. He acted like a meow when some black lives matter terrorists brigaded him, he's still a complete meow. He's not worthy of being president.

If people don't already know that Donald and Hillary are BOTH crooked politicians who use EVERY rule and loophole to their personal advantage, without ONE thought to how "the people" are being screwed, I can only think they are quite naive. ...
