So far I have not seen on the news one constructive point via the media coming out of the OWS movement which would accomplish what is desired to increase the amount of taxation on the 1%. As a retired IRS Agent I can tell you that if you want to get at the fat cats being the corporations here is an ironclad way to do it. There does exist a federal tax directed exactly at the problem herein in the USA which is never enforced. If a corporation witholds too much earnings it is subject to a tax called the Accumulated Earnings Tax. It is explained at Internal Revenue Code Section: " Sec. 531. Imposition of accumulated earnings tax

  In addition to other taxes imposed by this chapter, there is
hereby imposed for each taxable year on the accumulated taxable
income (as defined in section 535) of each corporation described in
section 532, an accumulated earnings tax equal to 15 percent of the 
accumulated taxable income.."  Anyone can call the IRS toll free number and have it explained then you can call the Office of the White House and ask the question as to why the IRS is not enforcing this law on the Corporations for whom the media states that they are holding onto trillions of dollars not spending into the economy to create jobs.  I can tell you the IRS is not enforcing the law because the law does not have enough meat into it and it has not been enforced because of that thus making the law a joke.  The OWS movement will absolutely grab the attention of the world wide media if it focuses on the AET and makes it a World Wide buzz in protest signs and does interviews regarding it with the business news programs of Fox Business Channel and NBC's Business Channel and CNN.  If you make the AET a household term instead of Herman Cain's stupid 999 = 9% sales tax = regressive taxation of poor and compete with that you can get it to become a part of the Republican Presidential candidate debates especially with Michelle Bachman who should be aware of it being a former tax attorney.  Do you think Herman even knows what the AET is?  You don't so find out about it because it could force corporations to start spending their cash hoards to create jobs and end force the stopping of foreclosures because Corporation HATE and FEAR the AET when an IRS Agent brings it up in an audit examination.  Put some muscle in your arguments.  In addition sound off to the White House on the issue of taxing: "Unreasonable Compensation" being paid to Corporate Officers wherein "Reasonable Compensation" should = what the President of the USA makes and let the IRS go after all amounts in excess of that be considered as "unreasonable" = not deductible by the corporations on their tax returns of income tax purposes.  WALL STREET will definitely not like that one and discuss that in interviews you give with the business networks.  REPOST this if you understand this tax talk.  If you don't ask questions for further explanation.

SO now you think the government should be able to dictate to a business, how much, where, and on what it spends it's money. How wonderfully Marxist of you. Maybe the government should tell you more of-- they already do a lot of- on what you can spend your money, and how much of it you can spend, and when you can spend it. Sounds fair to me.

What a joke as you say: "NOW" as I speak of a law in the IRC which already exists.

Boy are you Liberals hung up on race!!!

[-] 1 points by paplanner (58) from Mt Union, PA 3 years ago

Aw come on, it is funny. BTW liberal is not an insult.

[-] 0 points by Libertarianliving (149) 3 years ago

Maybe not to you. And I didn't mean Liberal as an insult. I did insult you though, and rightfully so, by pointing out how you are hung up on race.

[-] 1 points by paplanner (58) from Mt Union, PA 3 years ago

America has been hung up on race for 400 years, it ain't gonna change in my lifetime. Mocking bigotry is probably the most effective way to deal with it. BTW the religious bigotry is just as evil as the racial bigotry. Anyone who denies that race is an issue in America is in denial, and there is no further discussion required with such a person.

You are absolutely correct, White males are at the bottom of the totem pole in the eyes of the law especially. And if you don't agree their is absolutely just as much "minority against white" racism, as "white against minority", you have been brainwashed or are to egotistical to see it. Maybe we need to learn in America that it doesn't work, and isn't fair to attempt to legislate people into liking one another.

[-] 1 points by paplanner (58) from Mt Union, PA 3 years ago

racism is racism, bigotry is bigotry, no one is forcing you to like anyone. You've made it very clear that you do not like people who are not white, you've got every right to continue to do that. Fair is that I have every right to ignore you or dispute you. Doesn't make a bit of difference to me who hates who, it just is a waste of time, energy and intellect all of which is to precious to waste hating.

Wrong 'bout me as the I don't fit nicely into one of your nice liberal categories. I like a lot of Black INDIVIDUALS. Actually I would say my second closest friend is a black man and he agrees with me on so much. "Racism" is pushed by the government and media to advance agendas, attain money, popularity, etc. And he also agrees with me that WHITE DEMOCRATS are by far the most overall "racist" group of people on the planet. They have an elitist perception of themselves as far superior to any people of color other than white. It makes them feel all warm and fuzzy to say, "I support those poor Black people". I would say too that they are even more racist than Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, etc. And those people are VERY racist, so it is saying a lot.You wanna hear an N-word joke? Get in a room with a bunch of well-to-do WHITE democrats. It is far more prevalent than in any room of Conservatives, who are supposedly the "racist people".
