Can someone please show me why this is a race relations issue? Was the cop out hunting black kids that day?


I certainly can't show you. It's a crazy situation that went from jaywalking to a fatality, but there is no evidence it had anything to do with race. At worst regarding the cop, he over reacted, perhaps twice.

Check out this story:

Cop shoots white teen girl leaving party


I remember this. The carnage from the protesters demanding justice was unbelievable...

Patriot Flees


Quote:
Heather Bresch grew up around politics. Her father is Joe Manchin, the Democratic senator from West Virginia and a former governor. She has heard him say repeatedly, “We live in the greatest country on Earth,” as he did in countless political advertisements. And it appeared to rub off on her: Ms. Bresch was named a “Patriot of the Year” in 2011 by Esquire magazine for helping to push through the F.D.A. Safety Innovation Act.

Ms. Bresch is the chief executive of Mylan, the giant maker of generic drugs.

Until now, Ms. Bresch ran an unabashedly proud American company based in a Pittsburgh-area suburb, one of a handful of success stories that kept the once-thriving steel city relevant.

But on Monday, Ms. Bresch announced plans to renounce her company’s United States citizenship and instead become a company incorporated in the Netherlands, where the tax rates are lower. She did so by agreeing to acquire Abbott Laboratories’ European generic drug business.

The deal is just the latest example of a so-called inversion — in this case, it’s actually called a “spinversion” — and may be the most surprising of such deals given Ms. Bresch’s family background.
Ms. Bresch says she entered the deal reluctantly, and she genuinely seems to mean it.

If Ms. Bresch’s deal isn’t a call to Washington to address what is clearly a growing trend that it has remained nearly silent on, the nation will most likely continue to lose large employers and taxpayers in droves to countries with lower tax rates. Almost 20 large United States companies have announced plans to give up their United States citizenship over the last two years. Just on Monday, the Irish drug maker Shire cleared the way for a merger with AbbVie, the drug maker based in Chicago, and Walgreen is considering an inversion through a deal with Alliance Boots, a European drugstore chain.

“It’s not like I’ve not been vocal and up there talking to anybody who’d listen to me,” Ms. Bresch told me in an interview about the crusade she had been on in Washington for years, talking to lawmakers about overhauling the corporate tax code to make United States companies more competitive. “But you know what they all say? ‘Yeah, uh huh, O.K. Uh huh.’ ”

She added: “We were one of the last ones in our sector to do this. So it’s not like I was blazing the trail. If you put on your business hat, you can’t maintain competitiveness by staying at a competitive disadvantage. I mean you just can’t. The odds are just not in your favor.”

She’s right about her competitors. Teva Pharmaceutical Products, which is based in Israel, and Actavis, which is now based in Ireland after a tax-driven acquisition of Warner Chilcott in 2013, pay much less in taxes.

Still, there’s something morally disconcerting about a company like Mylan, which is a beneficiary of United States taxpayers who pay for Mylan’s drugs through Medicaid and Medicare, leaving the country, in part, to pay less in taxes. (Ms. Bresch insists that the merger is being driven mostly by its strategic merits, and that the lower tax rate is just an added benefit.)

How much less will Mylan pay?

Ms. Bresch, who said the company’s current effective tax rate is about 25 percent, said the rate would come down to 21 percent in the first year of the deal and then move into the high teens after three to five years. Mylan will continue to pay taxes in the United States on its domestic profits, but not on its business operations abroad.

All of which raises an important question: Even if the United States were to revamp its corporate tax code, how low would the rate have to drop to be competitive and still raise enough revenue to pay for the services that citizens expect?

President Obama has proposed a top corporate rate of 28 percent, and a rate of 25 percent for manufacturers. However, that number would appear to be too high to hold on to the likes of Ms. Bresch. Even 20 percent — some Republicans have floated that number — might still be too high.

This tax-rate arbitrage among global companies creates a race to the bottom as countries try to outcompete one another until the rate becomes zero, a number that many shareholders might be thrilled about, but would be unlikely to produce enough money for the Treasury’s coffers. There have been proposals to curb inversions, but those are only short-term solutions.

When I raised the prospect that Mylan would still leave even if United States tax rates were lowered somewhat, Ms. Bresch stopped me.

“Well, I don’t think you can say that,” she said. “I would step back and say our starting point today is 35, right?” She added: “I can’t say as a starting rate what’s enough or not enough until you honestly are able to sit down and look at a holistic proposal because everything from manufacturing, physical assets, depending on how they would reform this in entirety, would be how it applies, regardless of what that starting point is.”

Ms. Bresch doesn’t appear hopeful about tax reform.

“Obama had the wherewithal to muscle through an entire health care reorganization, right?” she pointed out. “Like it, don’t like it, whatever. This tax reform is even, in my opinion, on a larger scale than that because it’s a global economy.” She added, “Our government, right or wrong, has taken the viewpoint of, ‘We’re not negotiating.’ It is what it is. I think that standoffish mentality around tax has now continued to compound and complicate this issue.”

But Ms. Bresch is even more nervous about the larger implications: “You know what makes me want to cry? I think whoever the next Facebook is, why would you ever start that company here in the United States?”

That’s tough love from the daughter of a United States senator, who learned of the deal on Monday for the first time.

So what does he think of the deal?

“I am always disappointed when American companies feel the need to move overseas because of the U.S. tax code,” Senator Manchin told me in a statement. “However, this decision is systemic of a larger problem with our corporate tax code that puts American companies at a disadvantage with their global competitors. Since the day I arrived in the Senate, I have been advocating for a complete overhaul of our tax system, and I will continue to work with my colleagues on ways to reform our tax code so we are competitive in a global market, and companies that manufacture and sell their products in America stay in America.”

So far, that’s much easier said than done.



I assume this means that their products will now be cheaper with this increased savings? Ok, I know they won't so raise the tax rate on their domestic profits to offset the gain made by moving overseas.

Do these "101 million" really want Walter in charge? It's pretty clear that this administration sucks however, that dipshit Walter Biden would destroy this country.

60% of the people that owed money to the water department paid their bills but the total amount owed only went down 25%? That math seems a little off.

Thank you for the guidance Obi-Wan.

You might have other options, but fat lot of good it will do you, unfortunately. We have a 2 party system and anybody outside of those parties has almost no chance of winning. Any "new blood" will have to work within those 2 parties.


That is exactly the thinking that has led us to be locked in to a 2 party system.

Quote:
Right now, voting for a 3rd party candidate might make you feel better, but you are basically throwing your vote away. You would have the same success (lack thereof) by voting for somebody that isn't even running. There needs to be a strong independent party or an overhaul to the entire system and I don't see the latter happening.


I'm throwing my vote away? So, my alternative is to vote for a republican or democrat that I do not agree with and do not think should run this country. According to you that's what I should do because they have the best chance of winning. Like I stated before, nothing in Washington is going to change if you keep voting the same dickheads into power.

I'm hoping the she doesn't run. Same goes for Jeb Bush. Let's get some new blood in there.

...of course the Republicans will put a Tea Party-ish person up for the position which will force me to vote for her anyway. (Then conservatives will insist that I love her for the next 8 years.)


I really can't believe how many people refuse to see that they have options other than republican or democrat. If you really want "new blood in there" then you need to vote than way. You keep picking apples from the same tree thinking one is going to taste different.

IDK Don, as hot as it's been in NC, there's a chance my shrubbery may spontaneously combust.


Cut back on the fertilizer, especially to avoid a Government watch list.

Look at that, your muslim brothers are getting it done now. Remind me again, what's the profit motif for brown people slaughtering, decapitating and crucifying brown people? Maybe you can join them some day and help the arrange their severed head collection.

Poor misguided muslim, only sees the world in black and white. Well, actually blue or red in this case. Honoring your commitment to the military and your country isn't a republican/democrat issue, it's what he signed up to do. Those 6 soldiers that died looking for him probably would have came home to their families too. Instead they are just dead and no amount of freed Gitmo terrorists will bring them back. Some day you'll realize that not everyone is blindly devoted to one train of political thought or in your case one delusional religion.

Just like the love you had for Cliven Bundy for a while....this must sting ! OUCH!!



Awesome!! Every post you make further exposes your ignorance. I am no republican and certainly not a Cliven Bundy supporter. Now go back to reading this months issue of Inspire magazine. I'm sure there are all kinds of juicy details about your peaceful muslim brothers beheading, crucifying and torturing their own. As Bergdahl, I have no sympathy for him at all. If he had stayed on his damn post like he was supposed to he probably would have rotated home 3 years ago.
