Corporate Tax

Thom, my husband told me that today you listed The Coca Cola Company among companies who do not pay Federal taxes. According the The Atlanta Journal and Constituion TCCC did pay Federal tax. http://ctj.org/ctjinthenews/2011/07/atlanta_journal_constitution_corpora... Did my husband misunderstand or did you get it wrong? If you were meaning to say "Coca Cola Enterprises", you should have made that distinction. This may seem like a small mistake, but it makes me uneasy about trusting you as I have in the past.

Hellfire and Damnation

Please look at the website The Scrigna Brothers, Inc., The New Walt Disney World Company and The Walt Disney Company. They are also accountants and bookeepers in Arkansas. Here are the Scrignas in the Wiki Corporation Visualizer.

i found this at open secrets.org and frankly i'm a bit disturbed

Double standard?

Why does tom spend an entire segment blaming the high prices of cell phone service in the United States on a lack of competition and then push for single payer health care?

Once again, Obama baits Boehner.

I won't hold my breath, but i think that there's another way to look at their most recent volley.

The President asked to be heard on the floor of Congress on a day that had a Republican debate scheduled.The responce was "No, you're just playing politics." The President was asking them to come and do their jobs and they said "No" because they would rather be at a political debate, than doing what they were elected for.

So, once again, who are the ones sacreficing the greater good of the nation for nothing more than an up-coming election?

US-backed Afghan Infiltration in Pakistan

Welcome to the next housing mess.

By MARY KISSEL

Talk about not learning from past mistakes: A government department is again intimidating banks into lending to minority borrowers at below-market rates, all in the name of combating "discrimination." Welcome to the next housing mess.

Braying jackass guests

Thom, my wife and I can't be the only ones who turn down the volume during exchanges such as you are having this morning at 10:10 am PST. Certainly there are guests who are less like "Professional Wrestlers", whose only techniques include insults, lies, and shouting. It is not entertaining to us. Do your other listeners like these cheap theatrics?

The House Is Burning Down

Recently a report stated that the average net worth of the average American family is $120,000.

Additionally, 70% of the 20 million barrels of oil that we use every day is for transportation. This $1.26 billion per day is used for air travel, trucking autos etc.

At $90/barrel and 308 million people in 4 person families this equals $6,000 per year per family.

Glass-tastic! (How reusable glass containers shouldn't continue to be a thing of the past)

Remember how milk used to be delivered to your door in a glass container, and once emptied, would be picked up for reuse? If this is not in your memory banks it’s probably because you and I were not alive to see it happen, but it did. This ingenious method was abandoned with the introduction of aluminum cans and plastic bottles; the beginning of our new trash problem.

How organized labor can support Obama is beyond me.

Labor Secretary Buys A Foreign Vehicle By Mistake, But At Least It Was Built By Foreign Union Workers

In the video above, President Obama’s Labor Secretary, Hilda Solis, explains why she recently bought a new Chevy Equinox: “What better example could I set if I encouraged my staff to go and purchase and seek how we could acquire a vehicle that would for me would send a signal that we’re for supporting our American workers, American-made products, fuel efficient as well.”

One problem: The Chevy Equinox is not built by American workers, because it’s not American-made. It’s bu

Republicans are tearing down the constitution bit by bit.

Yes, Thom, there is no doubt the Republicans read the constitution. That's so they can remember what to tear down. Republicans are doing so many things that are unconstitutional that it makes me angry. Especially where they (GOP) want to deny voting rights to eligible voters. They want the electorate to jump through hoops before they will allow citizens their constitutional right to vote. They even want to take away seniors right to vote by saying they must have a picture Identification driver's license. Once seniors reach their late 80s or 90s they no lo
