If corporations twist legalities to avoid paying taxes, doesn't that make
them tax protestors, in which case they should be sent to jail where they belong?

1. That too, besides the fact that they are
fascist dictatorships who only believe in capitalism and free market if it's money in their pockets, but when workers want freedom to create unions, get contracts, overtime pay, etc., or when they go bankrupt, then they suddenly don't believe in a free capitalist system. Self-serving assholes.

2. I'll listen to your songs anytime!
Thanks to big corporations and a-holes like Reagan, both Bushes, etc, I'm proud to support socialism whenever I can. These un-American bastards pretend that they're doing things to help us all, but reality and results are proving to be a different story. I see no need to support capitalism if this is how they're going to behave. And if Bush II is elected (not re-selected) in 2004, assuming there will be an election (they're not moral or ethical enough to let the people decide in an unbiased manner...), then a revolt is nigh. America continuing the path that Bush II/Hitler-Reincarnate is traversing will spell utter disaster, if we haven't passed that point already. :-(

3. Putting things in perspective.
What, exactly, makes an American Corporation, a real AMERICAN Corporation? When they file their corporate papers in the U.S.? When the board is primarily composed of American citizens? When the workers are primarily American? When the stockholders are primarily American?

I think we need to define this, particularly in this age where corporations are beyond the regulatory powers of our government, and still reaping all the benefits -- political and financial.
