I have seen a poor lawyer, he told me an honest man can not make it in law. I wanted to be a lawyer until I talked to him.

Wal-mart was founded in 1962 and incorporated in 1969. that's a few more than 15 years.

As of today, we consume less gasoline and oil that we ever have in the recent past. There are exponentially more hybrid and electric vehicles on the road that there ever have. In addition, the gasoline-only cars sold today consume far, far less gas than automakers in the 70s could have imagined. Cars today emit less than 1/20 of the emissions than a car from the 1960s.
In addition, we have more people riding motorcycles, scooters, etc than we ever have.
But it is still a problem.

I'll tell you what's wrong.
You know how you run a business? You get paid. First, you pay your expenses. Gas, materials, etc.
Second, you pay your employees. You pay Johnny and Bob.
Then you pay your taxes and other stuff.
THEN what's left, you take home and you put in the bank. That's yours. What's left is your profit.


You know how the government runs? The government gets paid.
First thing they do, pay themselves.
Second thing they do, try to get more money.

I agree that a company should be able to make as much money as they can make. However I do have a problem when the government gives tax abatement to companies that pay minimum wage for creating jobs. This allows them to pay less taxes then the local businesses that invest back into the community and when their employees make minimum wage a good number of them will qualify for public assistance causing more of a tax burden on everyone else.

My personal feelings is tax abatement for businesses and public domain for land to put a business on should be illegal, I did not get public assistance to build my business. And none of my employees are on public assistance. I already support walmart with my taxes I try to support other businesses with my wallet.

Yeah I agree with you. I wasn't aware Wal-Mart received tax cuts like that. That's ridiculous. That's like a double negative. Not contributing taxes, while absorbing so much government money.

A lot of companies get tax breaks, how did you think companies like facebook and GE can make billions of dollars and not pay any taxes. Companies take more from the government doll then poor people do. You just do not see as much about it as BOTH partys do it.

just because they get tax breaks it does not mean they don't pay taxes.
a tax break is just a reduction in taxes and every american is entitled to them not just corporations and the more you make the more you get in the form of reductions.

walmart pays millions upon millions in payroll tax and anyone with a business knows that as the business owner you have to match whatever your employees pay.
they generate millions upon millions in sales tax revenue for every state they operate in.
they also pay millions in property taxes for each location that their buildings sit on.

they like any other corporation in america also pay the highest corporate tax rates in the world.

half of americans fall in the lowest tax bracket and then after they do their taxes and claim their deductions they end up paying practically nothing.

it may be on a smaller scale dollar wise per individual but multiply it by millions of people and the amount is not so meager.

if americans have a problem with what these people pay in taxes and don't like minimum wage then they better take it up with the government because they are the ones who made the rules and the corporations are only going by what the fed allows them to do.

most of this argument is misconceptions started by the liberals and lamestream media and we don't here as much about the corporations like facebook because the libs rely on them to push their agenda and they are the biggest offenders out there because they did not pay one dime in taxes and got 800 million handed to them by the fed which essentially boils down to the fed paid them to make billions.

GE was only brought up when we had a republican president but now that we have a democrat president and he made the ceo of GE one of his czars, not a peep.

either way this whole tax debate is a bunch of nonsense because our government brought in a record 2.7 trillion in tax revenue last year that was more money then we ever pulled in and that is with record unemployment and a dismal economy.

the fed needs to stop spending our money excessively on wasteful programs and help get people back to work which will result in even higher tax revenue with more of a surplus.

i am gonna stop here because i am getting too political and this topic gets my blood boiling.
