Business do not pay taxes, they collect taxes from their customers and pass them on to the government. It is a scam perpetrated by politicians to deceive voters into thing they are not going to pay any more for goods and services.

Supreme Court Once Again Shows Its Disdain For Consumer Rights

Supreme Court Once Again Shows Its Disdain For Consumer Rights

For the third time in five years, the U.S. Supreme Court had a chance to reverse a terrifying trend in consumer rights by doing something, anything, to rein in “forced arbitration” clauses that strip consumers of their legal rights and effectively give companies a license to steal. And for the third time in five years, the SCOTUS majority showed its interests lie in protecting the coffers of big business rather than Americans’ access to the legal system. [More]

How Coke spent $1.5million 'influencing' an anti-obesity nonprofit - including picking its leaders, changing statements and suggesting pro-soda articles 

FILE - In this March 17, 2011, file photo, Cans of Coca-Cola and Diet Coke sit in a cooler in Anne's Deli in Portland, Ore.

But emails obtained by The Associated Press show the worldís largest beverage maker was instrumental in shaping the Global Energy Balance Network, which is led by a professor at the University of Colorado School of Medicine. Coke helped pick the groupís leaders, edited its mission statement and suggested articles and videos for its website. (AP Photo/File)

Regs to Riches: Chemical edition

 

Republicans often say that regulations kill jobs, but let's not forget all the jobs created by regulations — lobbying and consulting jobs for the bureaucrats, politicians, and aides who wrote the new rules.

"Mike Collins, a longtime aide to Sen. Tom Udall (D-N.M.), is leaving Capitol Hill to join the K Street ranks at Mehlman Castagnetti Rosen & Thomas," Megan Wilson at The Hill reports.

My original Post and the link to the string:

Just a few days ago, I wrote an note on here about how this government in collusion with big business would conspire to put small businesses out of business. We are experiencing the largest assault on the small businessman ever in our short 200 years as a country. Here is a headline that fits exactly in what I predicted

U-TURN: EXXONMOBIL calls for carbon tax to tackle global warming...

The real purpose of this story is that big business likes to impose taxes on their industries that their consumers pay in higher prices, but the little company can not afford to pass on. WAKE UP!!!!!!!!!!




My note from yesterday:
As a small manufacturer trying to compete against the giants out there that rape their customers with out of this world pricing, I see ruff times ahead for companies like ours. We don't have the millions, to buy off Congress, city officials and other government agencies and I think the dems in Congress will really go after small business like Jimmy Carter did. I think most forgot, or never knew how many small businesses were regulated out of business by Carter. It's bribery. The big companies pay the bribes, and the politicians pay them back with selective regulations designed to put the little guy out of business.

We had a body shop in NC call the store this week. They were miffed that Dupont and PPG prices went up so much in their semi-annual price increases and wanted out catalog. I make as good as IF NOT A BETTER product than these big guys, sell it for way less than 1/2 of theirs.... WHY??? I am not hiring lobbyist to buy Congress and pay bribes. America needs to WAKE UP pretty darn soon, because we have almost run out of time.

Here is an example. A gallon kit of premium "big name" auto clear (Gallon of paint with catalyst needed to make it harden after sprayed) will cost you about $250-$300.00! We sell ours for $100-$125.00 all day long RETAIL. Are we so dumb to figure out what is happening? Should it cost $30-40,000 for a car, when 25 years ago they averaged about $10,000? Should it cost 75 cents for ONE EAR OF CORN? $4.00 for a gallon of milk? Factor in the bribery going on in your bought and paid for elected officials and then you might see what they are really worth!
