YES! Let’s stop giving our money to tax-dodging companies!
NO! Boycotts mostly hurt workers & franchise owners.

If they move to Canada they should be banned from doing business in America. Seize their domestic assets and auction them off to PATRIOTIC competitors/franchise owners.

The bullshit must stop.

This requires a simple fix and should be applied to all corporate tax dodgers.

LEGISLATION : Private companies are indeed private and can do what is in their best interests. Conversley it is governments responsiblity to do what is in the best interest of the nation. If a corporation refuses to pay into the communities (ie nation) their fair share of taxes they are hearby BANNED from profiting off those communities.

Translation............ Dont think you are going to peddle your product in our country !

Comment: Businesses will never miss an oportunity to make profit, even though their ultimate goal is consistently HIGHER profits.

Conclusion : They will not leave or close just because the profit margin is less. Sure they want 100 million in profit but they will NOT pass up 10 million in profit if it is to be had.

From Screwed:
"The powers that be are running roughshod over the powers that OUGHT to be. Hartmann tells us what went wrong — and what you and I can do to help set American right again."
Jim Hightower, National Radio Commentator, Writer, Public Speaker, and author of the bestselling Thieves in High Places
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann is a creative thinker and committed small-d democrat. He has dealt with a wide range of topics throughout his life, and this book provides an excellent cross section. The Thom Hartmann Reader will make people both angry and motivated to act."
Dean Baker, economist and author of Plunder and Blunder, False Profits, and Taking Economics Seriously
From Screwed:
"I think many of us recognize that for all but the wealthiest, life in America is getting increasingly hard. Screwed explores why, showing how this is no accidental process, but rather the product of conscious political choices, choices we can change with enough courage and commitment. Like all of Thom’s great work, it helps show us the way forward."
