Re: What's on your mind?

Completely agree. Tax the rich, by all means, but don't tax the job creators, and the ones who'll up sticks and leave overnight without a second thought.

Re: What's on your mind?

imo it's better to have low taxed multi nationals than no multi nationals. Well thats a false dichotomy. Well to me it is pretty black and white.

Re: What's on your mind?

Seems to be a lot of competing narratives going on about the whole thing. Clearly there are a lot of vested interests. Its not even clear to me if Ireland would even get the money if it was recouped. Either way it just highlights the ridiculousness of the deals we give to multi-nationals while maki...

Re: TV Show Discussion Thread

Finished Bloodline S1, really enjoyed it. A deep slow burning, dysfunctional family drama. Ben Mendelson is really superb in it, his character has a great blend of charisma and malevolence. The cinematography throughout has this really distinctive mixed focus POV style, really unique and so well don...
