He's doing what a CEO should do: looking out for the best interests of his company. I applaud any business that minimizes taxes they have to pay. After all, taxes are a business expense that will get rolled into the cost of goods and services sold like any other expense. Keeping prices down can boost a companies sales. It's good business to minimize costs wherever possible. Regardless of his views on politics or personal taxes, he's doing the right thing for his business.

“Jim Jett always used to say that his brother was the damndest scoundrel that was ever borne,” drawled Abraham Lincoln, “but by the infinite mercy of providence he was also the damndest fool.”

Jeffrey Immelt, the modern version of Jim Jett’s brother and Chief Executive Officer of General Electric, should be fired.

Actually, if it’s possible, he should be fired twice: once because he’s a scoundrel and another time because he’s a fool.

As a fool and as a scoundrel, the guy has wonderful timing; timing that can only be attributed to the vast Left-Wing conspiracy that aims to convince...
