1. Remove deductions for Intellectual Property payments. This is the chief way corporations avoid tax.

True, but it would never stand up in an IRS court. Intellectual property-ie patents are considered real property.
Unless patent law is changed significantly there would be no legal grounds for objecting by the IRS.
Know for a fact a very large company,nearly Apple size, uses the same method through another EU country.Friend did their tax returns for years.

To naively ASSUME it would be SUPER EASY to PORT Android to another KERNEL stack is just STUPID. IT would take YEARS to be able to support the HUNDREDS of different HARDWARE PLATFORMS .
Linux still isn't even there all the way with vendor hardware support, you think vendors are just going to jump and support your new OS kernel, I think not.
Google's Fuchsia OS is heading for failure for this exact reason, just because it is microkernel is not a good enough reason to switch from Linux.
So Yes, Linux is WINNING smartphone battle right now and for a long time in the future.

How is inciting a riot and burglary that much different? Robert Creamer that actually visited the Obama WH 300+ times, 40+ meetings with Obama.His direct report Scott Foval also visited the WH. Foval was caught on video bragging about how they paid protesters that ended created violence at Trump rallies.

Don't even try to use snopes or politifact that pulls a red herring by stating, well they didn't pay them to directly beat someone up, completely ignoring that inciting riots isn't legal.

Zhang doesn't seem to have been the most ethical,one of the co-inventors said it was based off Douda's work. At the same time testimony a pioneer in gene splicing George Church said moving from bacteria to human cell “anything but obvious”.

I would say generally it is rather suspect Zhang "invented" the method just merely 6 months after he seen her lecture. Zhang also filed a fast track patent, it seemed like he was trying to game the patent system.

REAGAN won EC 525-13 and the popular vote 17 MILLION.In 1984! Took 16 years to break 50 mill again. The biggest lopsided LANDSLIDE election ever. Fun Fact: Only FDR and Obama are the only incumbents to win by losing millions of votes in their re-election. Fun Fact:Reagan gained 10 MILLION from 1980 to 1984.

Nope I thought it was good idea because the PRESS would do ITS JOB. Unlike the last administration where the press was in love with Obama.There were numerous reporters that were CRYING over Obama leaving.

I didn't have that many issues with Obama, I had a big issue that the press typically only running negative stories for day or two in brief articles or 15 second clips.
