“Money Goes Where it’s Welcome”

Rand Paul 2016!! He impresses me more every day.
These two videos are taken from Hot Air which is worth a read.

This quote is from the Wall Street Journal. Bold is mine. And may I say outrageous.

The Senate panel, in a report released Monday, said that Apple used technicalities in Irish and U.S. law to pay little or no corporate taxes on $74 billion over the past four years. The report focused on the tax implications of Apple’s use of overseas entities. The report found no evidence that Apple did anything illegal.

Sen. Carl Levin (D., Mich.), chairman of the investigations panel, on Tuesday accused Apple of employing “alchemy” and “ghost companies” to escape tax collectors in the U.S. and Ireland, the base of the firm’s international operations outside the Americas.

“Apple has sought the Holy Grail of tax avoidance,” said Mr. Levin. “Apple is exploiting an absurdity, one that we have not seen other companies use.”

And as long as we’re on Rand Paul, how about this quote in bold:

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) blasted members of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee Tuesday, which voted overwhelmingly to arm elements of the Syrian opposition in a bill co-sponsored by Sen. Robert Menendez (D-NJ) and Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN). “This is an important moment,” Paul said, addressing his Senate colleagues. “You will be funding, today, the allies of al Qaeda. It’s an irony you cannot overcome.”

Oddly enough even after this report, where the UN determines it was the rebels using the chemical weapons, the US govt has decided to fund the rebels. Based on what?
