These types of tricks should be unacceptable. Close the loops that allow this to happen, and let it be known that if you are going to do business in the US and benefit from our educated labor pool, infrastructure, markets, and resources you are going to pay taxes like everyone else. These shenanigans should demonstrate exactly why a corporation should not be treated as a legal person. They are immortal, and can skirt current law and tax codes by existing simultaneously in multiple places and jurisdictions at the same time.

Yes comrade, we must not allow the bourgeois to exploit the proletariat! How dear they attempt to avoid our 54,846 page tax code! They must pay for the .. Oh god, I can't continue. I need to wash my mouth/fingers for this.

1. Perhaps you should look up the meaning of Fascism. Let me help:

"A system of government marked by centralization of authority under a dictator, stringent socioeconomic controls, suppression of the opposition through terror and censorship, and typically a policy of belligerent nationalism and racism."

Dictator? Check, the President has been collecting more and more power since the 20th century. Stringent socioeconomic controls? Check. Supression of the opposition through terror and censorship? Check, look at white house taking on fox news. Belligerent Nationalism? Check.

2. Those on welfare tend to not look for a job. Why look for a job when the government sends you money and foodstamps? Why look for a job when you can join a gang or sell drugs? Welfare doesn't work, it encourages lazyness.

We already have a 12 TRILLION dollar debt, 10.2% unemployment, and fiat money. Now we want to increase the deficit, and print out another trillion dollars? Face the facts: Keynesian economic DON'T WORK. Our money is WORTHLESS, and our government is driving it further into the ground. We haven't had a 'free market' in a hundred years, progressive policies will be the ruin of this country. Goddamn.
