Huh ... when I mentioned this exact same topic sans "Obama is evil" header, nobody paid any attention to it. A lesson in marketing. :wink:

I really doubt that Microsoft would reincorporate overseas for oh-so-many reasons, so I think Ballmer is just talking this way to make a point as opposed to really speaking to a realistic hypothetical, but I do agree with the gist of what he is saying ... getting rid of the deferral rules would put U.S. corps at a disadvantage in the international market and would be bad policy.

At the last tax seminar I attended on this topic, it doesn't sound like the worst-case scenario is the full elimination of deferral, but rather some confusing lesser set of changes. I'm not thinking that Congress will do anything too damaging in this area ... Democrats and Republicans alike have a vested interest in not ruining the competitiveness of U.S. companies.

Okay, which one of you is Cybill and which one is Bruce? And how many seasons will we have to sit through before you crazy kids cut through the sexual tension and start making the beast with two backs?

OMG! I've never heard that one before. I am out of breath from laughing. That was good. "...beast with two backs."

I'd have to say this thread has gone pear-shaped...


I work as an attorney so that I can afford good scotch, which helps me to forget that I work as an attorney.

I'd say it began with incredibly low expectations and met them brilliantly. :wink:

Ahh yes, quite.

I must say though, it is always entertaining to watch Alpha and grizgirl when they're having a row. ;)
