Default Re: Romney Tax

More contradictions emerge from teh tax returns

On the campaign trail, Mitt Romney has become increasingly critical of China, saying the country is engaging in unfair trade practices and vowing to crack down on them in ways that are much more severe that the current administration.

The 2011 tax returns his campaign released on Friday show that Mr. Romney’s family trusts had invested in shares of a Chinese-owned state oil company but got rid of those investments this summer as Mr. Romney’s anti-Chinese rhetoric heated up on the campaign trail.
...

It invested in a derivative that would profit if the dollar fell against a group of foreign currencies.

Why does Mitt Romney bankroll Red China's oil industry and place bets agianst America's currency?

has brother mitt announced which 150 employees of his this money would have "trickled down" to if he didnt have to pay these taxes. or which 60 jobs he was going to create?

If I had to guess, because he invests to make money.

what a scum piece of shit.

it is because he traded his soul to satan in exchange for all the worlds earthly pleasures, riches, power, and fame.

satan tried to make the same deal with Jesus as he took him to the top of the mountain and offered him all the kindoms on earth.

Jesus rebuked him though.

romney only rebukes the likes of those whom Jesus healed and embraced (47%ers).

Fair enough unless you are investing in Chinese companies while going out on the campaign trail to make statements like this

But we cannot allow one nation to continue to flaunt the rules and kill our jobs by allowing them continue as they have.

http://2012.republican-candidates.org/Romney/China.php

Or making statements like this about the need for a strong dollar

People will not invest in this country and create jobs in this country for the American people if they don't have belief in our currency.

This.

Too many people strapped to the boob tube slurping up propaganda from Fox, MSNBC, CNN, etc. to give a shit though. And if you try to promote someone who actually has some kind of political/economic morals, you get berated as an extremist loony bot. Comfortably numb, the whole lot.
