Again we are hit with yet another headline about how a “Corporation” has taken billions of dollars from the tax payers.
Look at the title, right there, G.E.’s strategies Let It Avoid Taxes Altogether. WTF is a G.E.? How can a G.E. be an ‘IT’? Or how could a G.E. avoid anything? G.E. is the ‘name’ of a ‘corporation’, and folks we are all mad as hell at these ‘corporations’. But when you get down to it, can you touch it? Can you spank it?
I have always tried to visualize what the hell a corporation looks like and since nobody has ever captured a corporation on video or camera we are only left to wonder at the physical characteristics of such a creature.
I have one friend who lives by radical ideals and spits profane philosophies. He says that corporations do not exist, they are just merely a mask for people who don’t want to pay taxes and want a buffer between themselves and the crimes their money and employees commits.
A corporation is usually an assembly of people like this.
Now all these people are real tangible human beings. They have names and addresses. Some of these people use SEVERAL of these mythical corporations to hide their activities. So when the people are incensed at the actions of G.E. and they stand around yelling at signs.
The guy who made the whole thing go down sits back and creates another corporation to casually continue on with whatever nefarious activities he has planned next.
All I am saying here folks is Austin Powers did not go and beat up Dr. Evil’s shadow corporations like Starbuck’s. No. He went to Dr. Evil’s lair and kicked his ASS.
I have said my peace.
