America obameză, sau cum i-am prins din urmă pe americani



Am tot auzit în anii ăştia că Obama e un comunist nenorocit, că o să facă şi o să dreagă capitalismului american. O, da!  Asta e vrăjeala cretinilor din Tea Party, care nu au după ce se căca de foame, dar vor mai multe tăieri de taxe şi impozite pentru ăi bogaţi!


Ia să vedem cât de comunist este Obama: "A stark example of the fundamental unfairness that is now so widespread was in The New York Times on Friday under the headline: “G.E.’s Strategies Let It Avoid Taxes Altogether.” Despite profits of $14.2 billion — $5.1 billion from its operations in the United States — General Electric did not have to pay any U.S. taxes last year.

As The Times’s David Kocieniewski reported, “Its extraordinary success is based on an aggressive strategy that mixes fierce lobbying for tax breaks and innovative accounting that enables it to concentrate its profits offshore.”

G.E. is the nation’s largest corporation. Its chief executive, Jeffrey Immelt, is the leader of President Obama’s Council on Jobs and Competitiveness. You can understand how ordinary workers might look at this cozy corporate-government arrangement and conclude that it is not fully committed to the best interests of working people."


Şi cum arată distribuţia bogăţiei în America obamezului? Păi, uite aşa: " There is plenty of economic activity in the U.S., and plenty of wealth. But like greedy children, the folks at the top are seizing virtually all the marbles. Income and wealth inequality in the U.S. have reached stages that would make the third world blush. As the Economic Policy Institute has reported, the richest 10 percent of Americans received an unconscionable 100 percent of the average income growth in the years 2000 to 2007, the most recent extended period of economic expansion... The current maldistribution of wealth is also scandalous. In 2009, the richest 5 percent claimed 63.5 percent of the nation’s wealth. The overwhelming majority, the bottom 80 percent, collectively held just 12.8 percent."


Păi comunism din ăsta avem şi noi aici, în România! I-am prins din urmă pe americani! Ce urmează?

Nu doar că n-a plătit taxe, dar a mai şi primit $3.2B îndărăt (n-am priceput de ce, că amerlocii n-au TVA): In fact, GE was able to claim a tax benefit of $3.2 billion in 2010.

SUA=stat de tip sudamericam.

Oricum, a fost foarte tare ideea pentru care americanii sint pentru razboiul din Libia in proportie de 70%: daca se mai scumpeste benzina, nu-si mai permite nimeni sa mearga cu masina. Am auzit un comentariu din asta chiar pe CNN, cum ca deja este foarte scumpa benzina, si lumea renunta la mincare, imbracaminte si concedii ca sa se transporte la serviciu.

Ei, eu stiu pe piele proprie ca in SUA fara masina e ca in Romania fara pantofi, nu poti face nici doi pasi, dar unde e "generozitatea" exportatorului de democratie, unde e scandalizarea bunului simt in fata dicataturii?

Oamenii stiu una si buna: Obama e cu noi (desi e mai mult cu General Electric decit cu aia care l-au votat), si ne aduce benzina ieftina (ca de-aia-i dam in cap lui Ghaddafi, ca nu ne da noua petrolul lui pe gratis). Ce pana mea e aia democratie?

Prietene, ştii cum e cu popa: faci ceea ce zice el. Ce face el, e treaba lui. Au zis că la ei e democraţie, li se rupe de manifestaţii! Aşteptaţi, băieţi, până la alegeri. Când au să vină ăilalţi, să facă fix ca noi. C'aşa-i în democraţie!
Au zis că nu e democraţie în Egipt? Trăiască(atunci când nu mor sub şenilele tancurilor cumpărate de la democraţi!) luptătorii pentru democraţie! Ce-i atât de complicat?

Despite high unemployment and a largely languishing real estate market, U.S. businesses are more profitable than ever, according to federal figures released on Friday.

U.S. corporate profits hit an all-time high at the end of 2010, with financial firms showing some of the biggest gains, data from the federal Bureau of Economic Analysis show. Corporations reported an annualized $1.68 trillion in profit in the fourth quarter. The previous record, without being adjusted for inflation, was $1.65 trillion in the third quarter of 2006.

Many of the nation's preeminent companies have posted massive increases in profits this year. General Electric posted worldwide profits of $14.2 billion, while profits at JPMorgan Chase were up 47 percent to $4.8 billion.

Corporate profits steadily increased last year as companies continued holding onto record amounts of cash and other liquid assets while cutting costs, laying off workers and wringing more productivity -- defined as the amount of output that comes from an hour of work -- from remaining staff, even as the recession eased.
