We have no business guarding anything except OUR borders. I could care less about skirmishes happening 3,000 miles from us.

"...Afghanistan has no oil and we still have troops there." Afghanistan has close to a trillion dollars worth of rare earth minerals in its territory, though.

...and McCarthy's staff attorney was Richard Nixon. We know how well that turned out.

Try finding an at least second-generation American born MD these days. They're becoming like New York cabbies -- can't really speak English.
The American government, AND the American people (Democrat, Republican, Tea Party) are dumber than dirt and have absolutely NO concept of history. The tactics of Polkovnik Putin are xeroxed directly out of the American playbook! Why did the Soviet Union dissolve? The United States did not beat them militarily. WE BANKRUPTED THEM! Between the arms race, military race, space race and a dozen brush-fire wars, they ran out of money. Why is Russia lending support to all of our "enemies" in the Middle East and elsewhere? Because it costs us money and stretches our resources to the breaking point. Right now he wants to reclaim his former satellites for pocket change and he can do it under the cloak of "patriot separatists". Ukraine (the Russian word for "Border") has a population with 90% Russian lineage. More people in Ukraine speak Russian than the old Ukrainian language. Of course there are going to be separatists. If your parents and/or grandparents move to Ukraine from Russia, wouldn't you lean toward the East? Who finances NATO? Who finances the majority of the U.N.? Who has the largest standing army spread all over the world with nobody left at home? THE UNITED STATES! He's just doing to us what we did to him in 1990. The results will be the same. Just as the Soviet Union broke up, so will the "United" States...and for precisely the same reason.
When I lived in Florida, I had a very popular bumper sticker: "I don't care how you did it in New York."
Actually, since Eisenhower. Reagan got caught with his hand in the cookie jar several times and was actually more talk than action.
Finally, someone who has actually read history. This British (Canadians) did the honourable thing and went home after proving that we couldn't invade Toronto at our will because they could do more damage in the long run.
Google owns YouTube. It is a subsidiary; therefore it is just as valid to use the name Google in the place of YouTube.
As the article brings out, it is not the rate but the enforcement globally. Yes, the rate is 35% U.S. for profits. However, if those profits were made in Toronto, what right does the government have to claim that this is their money? What the article doesn't mention is that now with the FATCA law (which your damn congress passed), I now have to pay the CRA (Canadian tax agency) 20% of any income I make. I also have to pay 32% I.R.S. taxes of any money I make abroad. This is what American tax law has imposed on u.s. corporations, now imposed on U.S. citizens.
