But Nobody Pays That
The New York Times, March 24, 2011
General Electric, the nation’s largest corporation, had a very good year
The company reported worldwide profits of $14.2 billion, and said $5.1

Its American tax bill? None. In fact, G.E. claimed a tax benefit of $3.2
Phi Beta Iota: This is an atrocity, a crime against humanity. Legalized crime in the US has reached heights not seen in modern history. There is no social contract between the government and those puportedlyostensibly governed. GRIFTOPIA meets Empire of Illusion. The systemic corruption of America–the Paradigms of Failure–is daunting to those who strive to serve the public interest. Integrity–one word–absent across the board. Why? Because they can get away with it.
