However, looking at it from a less partisan perspective one can only surmise that many American corporations, in order to prosper and survive, are looking at ways to preserve their value to shareholders, and one such method is the acquisition of foreign companies and relocating.
“Why would anyone, even a corporation want to leave the United States?” you might ask. The answer isn’t terribly complex; it can be summed up in a simple statement. The US corporate tax structure is punitive, ridiculously complicated and uncompetitive. One of the reasons that real unemployment in the US is so out of control is because the Democrats have placed huge onerous burdens on businesses that discourage growth. Consequently, the majority of businesses are choosing to keep their cash in their pockets, rather than expose themselves to having it confiscated.
The troubles with the anti violence program and a hiring scandal at the Illinois Department of Transportation have become key issues in the governor’s race, with Rauner pointing to the dual controversies to suggest that Quinn failed on his promises to clean up state government following the impeachment and ouster of predecessor Rod Blagojevich.
SPRINGFIELD — A new subpoena seeking records about Gov. Pat Quinn’s botched 2010 anti-violence program has been issued, this time from a federal grand jury based in Chicago.
The request marks the first subpoena issued by Chicago-based federal authorities in the probe into Quinn’s $54.5 million Neighborhood Recovery Initiative. Numerous prior subpoenas had come from federal authorities in Springfield.
The federal grand jury in Springfield has subpoenaed emails from the governor’s former chief of staff, Jack Lavin, and several others heavily involved in implementing the program.
Yesterday Biden used the term Shylock, a slur against Jews, and today he says Orient in reference to Asia.
I don’t think this is particularly offensive, but the left sure does, and Biden is supposed to be in that tent.
I’m sure Biden has made impassioned speeches about how Redskins is offensive to him, meanwhile he is the type of guy to find a feather, stick it in his hair and dance around going Woo Woo Woo.
Biden has to be told what is offensive. Biden has to be told what the left thinks. Biden is a friggin idiot.
According to Fox News, President Obama is going to deploy three thousand US troops to West Africa to fight Ebola.
So, we’re not at war with ISIS, but apparently we’re at war with Ebola.
Yessiree Bob! The Yanks are coming to kick Ebola’s ass!
Too bad Ebola doesn’t have an ass to kick.
Fox News reports that a Defense Department official has said that Ebola is the Defense Department’s number one priority.
Biden’s Anti-Semitic Gaffe Is a “Big Fuc**ng Deal”
Speaking at a conference celebrating the 40th anniversary of the Legal Services Corporation, Vice President Biden spoke of his son’s experience serving in Iraq hearing from other soldiers in need of legal help back home, “…people would come to him and talk about what was happening to them at home in terms of foreclosures, in terms of bad loans that were being…I mean these Shylocks who took advantage of, um, these women and men while overseas”
To quote another of Biden’s famous gaffes, his use of the term Shylocks is a “big fuc**ng deal,” especially to those in the Jewish community.
Wal-Mart has been fined after an investigation into some New York stores that charged a nonexistent “sugar tax” on soda.
The New York attorney general’s office says the retailer launched a national sale in June advertising Coca-Cola 12-packs for $3, but consumers at 117 Wal-Mart stores in New York were routinely charged $3.50.
ATF policy irks dealers, risks privacy intrusion, racial profiling: critics
The Obama administration quietly has been forcing new gun buyers to declare their race and ethnicity, a policy change that critics say provides little law enforcement value while creating the risk of privacy intrusions and racial profiling.
With little fanfare, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) in 2012 amended its Form 4473 — the transactional record the government requires gun purchasers and sellers to fill out when buying a firearm — to identify buyers as either Hispanic, Latino or not. Then a buyer must check his or her race: Indian, Asian, black, Pacific Islander or white.
Sean Hannity interviewed President Obama’s half brother, Mark Obama Ndesandjo, and some of his responses might surprise you. Check it out…
Remember when Obama admitted to “Joe the Plumber” on the rope line that he wanted to spread the wealth around?
Do you remember what the abject morons on the left said in response?
“HE’S NOT EVEN A PLUMBER!!”
Does that make any sense at all to you?
Now these same dumbass mouth-breathers are giving the business to Elizabeth Hasselback, and they are, ironically, accusing her of being stupid.
Here’s the Hasselback tweet that has the Idiot Squad going full progtard.
Via Twitchy, here are some highlights from the left -
Neil DeGrasse Tyson is having a really bad week. First, he drew the attention of Sean Davis when 2 of his 60 slides in a recent presentation were questioned. Then Sean started digging and came up with more examples of NDT fabricating or getting his facts wrong.
Now Ed Driscoll is getting in on the fun and reporting a Tysonism of his own.

Definition of Tysonism: (noun) A made up story created to help a smug, self righteous and self proclaimed know-it-all look smarter than he really is.
If you’re wondering how I would vote on the resolution in committee and on the House floor — it would be a resounding nay! And I would be as vocal in speaking out against this resolution as I am right now.

Pics Surface That Shows Actress Who Claimed Racism Was Dry Humping Her Boyfriend In Plain View of Public
Witnesses were correct. This looks like a whore servicing a client.
So who do we believe now, the people who called the police, or this lying race-baiter who says she was merely kissing her boyfriend when “racists” called the police?
Someone from the office went down and asked the couple to stop because everyone in the office could see them but they continued.
The eyewitnesses said Lucas then began ‘horizontally bongoing her boobs back and forth’. He added that Watts eventually reached into the center console, grabbed a tissue, wiped him down and then herself and tossed it on the grass.
Watts has insisted that she did nothing wrong before officers questioned and detained her – despite accounts from witnesses saying she and her partner were having sex in public.
