Comment Bogus Reviews (Score 0) 126

I've noticed authors with competing books will use "reviews" to bad-mouth a book and promote their own book. I've also noticed that when a conservative publishes an excellent book with, say, 35 5-star reviews, there will be a few 1-star reviews that claim the book is terrible, presumably posted by left-wing operatives trying to kill sales of the book.

Comment Can't have that (Score 1) 132

Google repatriating its profits without the Federal Government taxing them away? Heaven forfend! If untaxed, Google's money would just be invested in the American private sector, where it would create jobs. Or it might be lent to the Federal Government. Can't have that. After all, it's better for workers not to find jobs, to depend on the government (i.e., the American taxpayers). And it's better for the Federal Government to borrow capital from China and other countries with America's best interests at heart.
