Re: A Brief History of Why We Still Have Tax Breaks for Companies That Ship Jobs Overseas

Now ain't that a bitch!?! Let's really understand why our economy is in the tank. For 8 years under the Bush Administration, deregulation and corporate tax cuts and incentives allowed these "job creators" to "create jobs" OVERSEAS. All of these AMERICAN companies decided to ship 70 thousand manufacturing facilities over the last 2 decade to China, India and other places like them and pay slave labor wages, just so a few plutocrats and oligarchs can stuff their filthy pockets and inflate...

Men do not have the placenta pull and is why they feel NOTHING when they abandon their children. A woman...unless she deeply flawed mentally...always have that pull even if she had an abortion...like the admission from what's that crazy girl's name-Nickie Minja...I think. Some men don't see the devastating social ramifications done to their children as a result of their absence until they grow old and want that connection. Then it's too late. That's why in my opinion, having children should...

A Brief History of Why We Still Have Tax Breaks for Companies That Ship Jobs Overseas There was a lot going on in the news last week, so no one would blame most Americans for missing a key vote in the U.S. Senate. On July 30, 42 Senators, 41 of them Republican, filibustered a bill called the Bring Jobs Home Act, which would have ended tax breaks for companies that ship jobs overseas and eased the tax burden for companies who wanted to bring jobs back to the United States. Let’s be clear...

Sorry, I don't know what I was thinking. Got this in my email and just wanted to post/share because it is the greatest show of Peace by two countries in centuries. Also, since we have Black brothers and sisters in Cuba, what happens in Cuba should be of interest to African Americans, Africans and the Black diaspora. I hope that the Cuban people know that they better brace themselves for the onslaught of "westernization", "capitalism" greed, scams, predators, criminals and "new money" wealth...

There's not a woman alive that believes her son's body should receive one bullet. Anyone alive that can pump 16 bullets into a woman's child no matter the age, is beyond mentally deranged. All countries on the planet require killers in order to exist. That's something, isn't it? Humanity's insane.

All these claims of "investigating" these murders is no more than a freaking show. They have no intentions of doing a G-damn thing. It's nothing but a pacifier to stick in Black people's mouth to use as a stalling tactic for enough time to have passed that the case is no long in the news and protesters have grown too weary and tired and disinterested to continue to make it an issue. African Americans just need to realize and accept and NEVER FORGET the Black people in positions of authority...

I read news of total bullshit said by the lawyer for Yanez. He said Yanez was frightened because of the smell of pot in the car. That’s why he murdered Philando. Here’s the detail: Yanez’s lawyer said that due to the smell of pot and presumably being stoned - Philando did not follow orders given by Yanez. Wait a second! The cop did not give any orders to Philando. NO ORDERS! Assassin Yanez did not say, Stay still or say Stop moving or Put your hands on the wheel. There were no orders from...

There's something wrong with the Neanderthal. He's a killer of everybody including ones that look like him and a hater. It's hard to even fathom they started out as innocent babies. They wrinkle up by age 50 and look like a heap of talking skulls. Beyond creepy are these living beings.
