Occupy Wall Street? My ass.

Nothing more than a bunch of cry-baby, irresponsible, jealous people, who want the "good life" without having to work for it or earn it.

I really think people went to far in one direction with this rally. The message I get from the start was Wall St Got a bail out, why, it did not help US. Now its bunch of free loaders, asking where my hand out. Its not fare Well, the truth is Life isnt fare. That guy in the vid, I dont know him. But they need to get there message back on track, Or there going to look stupid in the long run. Case in point.

Message should be: Why did we bail out Wall St? Why am I paying for it!

Here is a link on How I feel. Its funny! Not funny topic.

The only good part about this whole thing that I agree with is that the rich pay less taxes than the middle class. Oil companies making billions of dollars a quarter in profit and not paying for jack diddly in taxes. Problem with the occupation is that you see all the idiots doing the interviews and looking like fools. I am quite surprised to see how far this is going though.

Rich people pay a $h1t ton more in taxes than middle class, and the government has set the bar so low for what they consider rich that it is touching everyone. A person making $50k will pay 15% in taxes ($7500), a person with an income of $200,000 will pay 35% taxes ($70,000!) and a company that has $1,000,000,000 in USA profits (not revenue) will pay 35% in taxes. Where do you get that rich people don't pay taxes? Yeah there may be a few of them, GE or Buffet that scam the system but your everyday business leader that went and got an MBA which cost $100 - $200k and has a good job making six figures pays magnitudes more than middle class. Even Obama's own tax research group published that the top 1% or earners pay 80% of the taxes and the top 20% pay like 95% of all taxes and they even said the average rich person pays 100 times more than the average person. This was from a left learning group, imagine what the actual data says!

Oil companies do pay taxes, they are public companies you can easily find how much they brought in, what the expenses were, and the taxes paid, its all public knowledge. Plus oil companies only make a few cents profits per gallon while the government helps themselves to like $0.85 cents a gallon. Exxon has lots of profits because they happen to sell a lot of gallons not because they are over charging for their product.

Do you have a problem with Apple making billions and billions even more than oil companies and making hundreds of dollars of profit per each ipad iphone sold all made in china?

That is complete BS.

If that were true, then why do 20% of the highest income earners in the USA pay well over 60% of all federal income taxes?

They might pay a lower rate.

But, 25% of $2 million is surely more than 30% of $60,000.

Plus, higher income earners most likely have to pay capital gains taxes. That would be over and above earned income taxes that they pay already. Thats something most liberals completely ignore in these type of discussions.

Get real people.

Keep in mind that that would be 45% of NET profits. NET profits is after all costs are factored in.

And, before we hear the screaming about oil companies making to much profit. Oil company profits fluctuate. Up & down over time periods. Just because profits are good now, does not mean they will be 2 or 3 years down the road. Same as any other company.

Whenever you see a politician screaming bloody murder, and greediness of oil company profits and start naming figures, chances are they will be talking gross profits, not net profits. There is a very huge difference between those figures which makes those statements out right lies.

If you are going to debate, have some facts or quotes to back you up. Listed below are some of my quotes and sources to back it up.
The 400 of us pay a lower part of our income in taxes than our receptionists do, or our cleaning ladies, for that matter. If you're in the luckiest 1 per cent of humanity, you owe it to the rest of humanity to think about the other 99 per cent.
Quote by Warren Buffet. The rich (top 1%) may look like they pay a lot of taxes, but they have so many loop holes that they get around it.

http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Warren_Buffett

Here are some facts. Yes they pay taxes, just not to the U.S.
Exxon paid the most taxes last year of any U.S. company, by far -- but not a cent went to the IRS for income taxes.

You've got to be kidding, right ????

Corporations do not pay INCOME taxes. They pay taxes on NET profits. Same as any other corporation.

Employees pay INCOME taxes. Not corporations.

Corporations also pay capital gains taxes they may get on capital gains from investments. But, they do not pay INCOME taxes.

One teeny little exception that is ignored by the liberals;

Jeffrey Imelt is the head CEO of General Electric. General Electric paid no corporate taxes last year at all. They have teams upon teams of tax layers to figure all that out. General Electric is sending jobs over seas by the thousands. Guess who is also the head Czar of the Obummers "Jobs Council"? Yup, you guessed it. Jeffrey Imelt.

Go figure that one.

But, you see, its easy for a head of a company to not take an salary from his company. In fact, thats quite common.

But, they do pay capital gains taxes. That cannot be avoided.

These clowns that are saying their tax rates are lower than their secretaries and janitors is probably correct.

But, once again, 20% of $2 million is far, far more than 25% of $60,000.

Its just the loony left, juggling the figures and redefining things for the vote and the sympathy of the ignorant while lying through their teeth.

Ok, deny this then and please feel free to look at the link.
Exxon tries to limit the tax pain with the help of 20 wholly owned subsidiaries domiciled in the Bahamas, Bermuda and the Cayman Islands that (legally) shelter the cash flow from operations in the likes of Angola, Azerbaijan and Abu Dhabi. No wonder that of $15 billion in income taxes last year, Exxon paid none of it to Uncle Sam, and has tens of billions in earnings permanently reinvested overseas.

Mother Jones’ Adam Weinstein notes that, despite benefiting from corporate welfare in the U.S., Exxon complains about paying high taxes, claiming that it threatens energy innovation research. Pat Garofalo at the Wonk Room notes that big corporations’ tax shelter practices similar to Exxon’s shift a $100 billion annual tax burden onto U.S. taxpayers. In fact, in 2008, the Government Accountability Office found that “two out of every three United States corporations paid no federal income taxes from 1998 through 2005.”

http://thinkprogress.org/politics/2...0299/exxon-tax/
Call it income tax, corporate tax, whatever, fact still remains that they pay no taxes to the U.S. Tens of billions, going else where, hmmm. I can fish for sources all day, what have you shown me that says otherwise. BTW, pay special attention to the last sentence in the second paragraph.

Boeing’s tax rate was just 3.2 percent averaged over the last 4 years and just 0.7 percent averaged from 2002 to 2007. And Boeing’s three-year effective tax rate from 2001-2003 was -18.8 percent.
http://thinkprogress.org/economy/20...eing-tax-break/
Sure looks to be a lot lower to me.

Complete Bullsh#t.

Name any oil company in the entire world that does NOT do oil exploration and production all over the world. At the very least in several countries.

Of course they are going to have wholly owned subsidies in other countries. They pay taxes in those countries for profits earned in those countries. Profits earned in a foreign country are not taxable in the USA. They can be taxable if companies bring those profits into the USA. In other words, those profits would be double taxed. Once when earned in a foreign country, and once again of brought into the USA.
No wonder that of $15 billion in income taxes last year, Exxon paid none of it to Uncle Sam, and has tens of billions in earnings permanently reinvested overseas.
Of course, potential billions earned in a foreign country are taxed at that foreign countries rates. Why should those countries bring those billions here and pay taxes again? They might as well keep investing those profits in those foreign countries where they have already paid taxes on those profits earned.

Again, there is another phony article talking about a corporation paying INCOME taxes. A complete lie resulting from ignorance as corporations do not pay INCOME taxes. Employees pay income taxes. Corporations pay taxes on NET profits.

INCOME taxes and taxes on NET profits are completely different and are taxed at different rates.

Do you have any idea what Boeing does?

They build airliners and do some military contracts as well.

Those are very, very high dollar products that company is making. Its not like they are making toasters or bicycles.

So, a small percentage of a very, very large amount of money could very well be more than YOU earn in your entire lifetime. In several lifetimes.

Besides, profits for any corporation fluctuates over time. Always. For every single corporation out there. In good times. And bad.

Think it through.
