If they can't move the Malaysian to the US office, they'll move the US office to Malaysia. Visa problem solved.
And that's not the ONLY problem solved. The IRS actually allows a company that moves it's HQ out of the US to pay almost 0 in taxes on income earned here. Look at AbVie. They make an arthritis drug called Humera. It allows me to work, because without it I have massive joint pain. It costs 2500.00 per month for 2 injections I give myself. Guess how much they make in a year? They bought some pissant company in Europe and will now move their headquarters there. All the tax burden on them magically disappears. I'll let you know when the drug price drops. And you wonder what insurance is good for. Walgreen's Drugs is another one. They are poised to do to same thing. Of course, I will lead the charge to never set foot in one of their stores as long as I live. BILLIONS of tax dollars gone, all for the sake of the fucking almighty shareholders. But you know, what helps the "people" (read: Corporations) is GOOD for the economy! Now they have more money to pay the work^H^H^H shareholders. We're fucking doomed. Invest in gold and guns/ammo. You'll need them soon.
Do you have to pay to file your state return?
I can only speak for my state, but its free to e-file at the Il. Dept. of Revenue. Submit through a service and there's a fee.
Even in the ghettos of the U.S. where people are living in project housing, eating via food stamps, they have mobile phones(not just Obama phones) and satellite/cable TV. It indicates a level of ignorance that annoys me.
Go ahead and tell me what an ass I am for my views and how poor people should have these things. I just don't see it.
OK, you're an ass! There is no such thing as an "Obama-Phone"! This is a pejorative term invented by the tea-baggers to imply the President or his policies provided these free of charge to minorities. In fact, this is a program that has been around since the 60's and is funded ENTIRELY by the telcos. It insured that low income families who couldn't afford phones would be able to summon help in emergencies or be notified of jobs or family emergencies. Think you can get a job with no phone, DUMBASS? And of course, God forbid people can watch ANY type of news programming and be informed on issues of the day! They have proven to be too stupid for that by being poor!
