"I am not the one arguing against public care of government employees. You are, No ... maybe this is the crux. I'm saying everyone pays for themselves. You act like government employees deserve some special early retirement, open ended pension entitlement, while farmers and construction workers take more risk to feed and build, but must serve and bow to the "public servant/saint". …

I'm not sure if you were a cop in NYC or what ... the "war zones" are different environments, and the cop side is not all clean in the big cities either, you can't kid me on that. I was in New Orleans before some of the bad side was cleaned up .. was friends with some too, most were OK. They supposedly cleaned up much ... hopefully. But the small town municipalities where locals take…

Notice how they do not even mention a passenger until they refer to the gunshot wound? How about-it's not a good shoot if they have no idea who they are shooting at. Good Lord, there could have been a child in the car for all the police know. The passenger had no idea he was involved in anything until his friend jumped back in the car and took off. The passenger is in my family. He was shot…

Walgreens to renounce U.S. citizenship

6 months, 2 weeks ago redecatur.com

Move will reduce taxes while company continues to receive incentives from Illinois

From redecatur.com:

Walgreens CEO, Gregory D. Wasson, announced that it plans to move its corporate headquarters to Switzerland as part of a merger with Alliance Boots, a European drugstore chain. The move will allow Walgreens profits to be taxed a lower rate in Switzerland and reduce Walgreens taxes in Illinois.

Walgreens plans the move, even though the taxpayers of Illinois gave it a $6 million tax credit over a period of 10 years, provided $625,000 in training money and $875,000 in additional tax incentives.

Walgreens tax strategy is called “an inversion.” A U.S. company buys or merges with a foreign company in a low tax jurisdiction, moves its headquarters there, but continues to generate business and profits in the U.S.

According to the New York Times, Neill Geiser, assistant director of Change to Win Initiatives said, “It is unconscionable that Walgreens is considering this tax dodge – especially in light of the millions of dollars it receives from the U.S. taxpayers each year.”

Walgreens received $16.7 billion from Medicare and Medicaid last year. Walgreens’ move will cost U.S. taxpayers about $4 billion over a period of 5 years. (Andrew Sorkin, “Renouncing Corporate Citizenship” N.Y Times, July 1, 2014 p. B8)
