    Can you help us out? We hear you've got $75 trillion in cash. You were born here, you're our kid, help out mom and dad!

    Sincerely,
    USA

    Libs can't stand that corporations are sitting on a lot of cash and feel that money could be spend on social justice and redistributive programs.

    Apparently they don't' believe in private property. If somebody has a lot of money it should be grabbed.

    Not a trait one would normally associate with America.

    Dear "Job Creator", whose money can't be touched because you're a "job creator", where's the jobs? (no pun)

    The corporations aren't obligated to do anything with that cash except what their boards deem is best for their shareholders. Period. That is the way free enterprise works.

    Perhaps you'd like the government to seize all those funds and start large collectives to employ everyone? Try Russia, though they seem to have abandoned that model after almost 100 years of failure.

    Ok, look. You're money's doing nothing and we both know it, in fact, you're paying to park it. Give us $15 trillion and here's the deal. We'll pump it through the economy, to the working man, and get back into the black. Remember those times? That was when you were making a killing right here. Anyway, we'll also agree to take a portion and subsidize some of your marketing (let us worry about the WTO). Everyone is going to want to get their hands on your iphone 6, and your ipad 3, and when the rest of the world see Americans with those, they'll want them too. You're going to not only get the money back you're going to look like a champ doing it.

    What do you want them to do with Ricter? Hand it over to congress to be utterly squandered? Apple earned it. It's theirs. Nobody OWES YOU ANYTHING.

    Don't get excited, I'm still asking nice.
     
  9. Apple just texted me and told me he is to busy to respond as he is flying his corporate jet towards his yacht, in order to sail towards the island country he is currently thinking about buying......

    We should definately tax apple for being a smug son of a bitch... :(

    From an email circulating around, this should make your whole day.


    Did you know that if you sell your house after 2012 you will pay a 3.8% sales tax on it? That's $3,800 on a $100,000 home, etc.When did this happen? It's in the health care bill. Just thought you should know. SALES TAX GOES INTO EFFECT 2013 (Part of HC Bill). Why 2013? Could it be to come to light AFTER the 2012 elections? REAL ESTATE SALES TAXS. This is "change you can believe in"? Under the new health care bill all real estate transactions will be subject to a 3.8% Sales Tax. The bulk of these new taxes don't kick in until 2013. If you sell your $400,000 home, there will be a $15,200 tax. This bill is set to screw the retiring generation who often downsize their homes. Does this stuff make your November and 2012 vote more important? Oh, you weren't aware this was in the Obamacare bill? Guess what, you aren't alone. There are more than a few members of Congress that aren't aware of it either
