Senator: Boycott Burger King
as it eyes move to Canada

CBS News, by Stephanie Condon

Original Article

Posted By:Scottyboy, 8/25/2014 6:21:48 PM

As Burger King eyes moving its headquarters to Canada to lower its tax bill, a Democratic senator is recommending a boycott of the burger joint. Instead, Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, said hamburger lovers should try out two fast food chains that haven´t "abandoned" the United States -- White Castle and Wendy´s. "Burger King has always said ´Have it Your Way´; well my way is to support two Ohio companies that haven´t abandoned their country or customers," Brown said in a statement. Burger King is considering purchasing the Canadian-based business Tim Hortons in a move known as an "inversion" -- when a company

"Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, said hamburger lover should boycott"

Taxpayers should boycott Sherrod Brown and others in Govt. who refused to give business tax break.

The US has the highest corporate tax rates, do something about that you ignorant swine. Burger King owes it to their shareholders to seek refuge from bad policy.

Sorry ... no more room on my boycott list.

Besides ... that Scarborough guy on MSNBC beat her to it on his show today:

MSNBC host Joe Scarborough explained that Americans should boycott Burger King if the fast food giant merges with Canadian fast food chain Tim Hortons and shuffles corporate profits outside of the United States.

Other than Sen Brown being a major part of the tax problem, I suppose it´s just a coincidence both the mentioned companies are based in the Senator´s state.

For the Administration borders are irksome anachronisms when slowing the invasion of looters from the south. But, somehow they´re sacrosanct for a corporation to operate within.

Brown needs to realize that the climate that these companies find so inclement is a climate of his making.

Any boycott would be misdirected. The people that would be hurt are the franchisees and employees that actually own and work at the outlets . They are in your neighborhood for the most part.

I don´t eat at Burger King just because they are really, really nasty.

But I can´t really blame them for this move. They will still pay sales taxes and property taxes wherever they have a restaurant. So the cities they are located in will still get their tax revenues.

But the feds will feel the pinch of their anti-business policies once again.

And I´ll stick with Chic-fil-A when I want fast food...

When government slaps you down you are supposed to say "Thank you. May I have another?" The insanity of the liberal mind.

Why not make our tax rates competitive in the world so businesses come here rather than run away. THAT is completely beyond the ability of liberals to understand.

Burger King is a big non-union employer in Ohio. Senator Sherrod Brown (D) is a staunch supporter of unions. Unions have a history of providing generous campaign donations to Democrats.

Sherrod Brown’s staff was instrumental in bussing senior citizens to Canada to save money on prescriptions. While prescriptions were being filled, senior citizens were spending money in casinos.

MILWAUKEE — She can rouse a crowd as she did here this week, connect with women and drive turnout among African-American voters. Yet despite the nail-biting closeness of state contests to decide which party will control the Senate, Michelle Obama has been largely absent from the campaign trail so far. She has her reasons, Democrats say: Mrs. Obama hates to be away from her daughters. She loathes Washington’s toxic politics. She resents Republicans for their opposition to her husband’s agenda. But she also believes some Senate Democrats have been insufficiently supportive of her own efforts to end childhood obesity.

WASHINGTON — Julia Pierson, the director of the Secret Service, is resigning in the wake of several security breaches, according to administration officials. The resignation came less than a day after lawmakers from both parties assailed Ms. Pierson’s leadership and said they feared for the lives of the president and others in the protection of the agency. A 30-year veteran of the Secret Service, Ms. Pierson was supposed to have been the one to repair the agency’s reputation after scandals that raised questions about a culture that gave rise to incidents involving drinking and prostitution during overseas trips.

Nearly 35,000 walruses were discovered this month on a northwest Alaskan shore as result of being unable to find sea ice to rest upon, a problem aggravated by climate change, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) said. The unusually massive walrus gatherings were first spotted on Sept. 13 when NOAA conducted its annual arctic marine mammal aerial survey, a spokeswoman told the Associated Press. The marine mammals use sea ice as diving platforms to hunt for food in shallow areas, or as resting points to avoid long, exhausting swims. While it is normal for sea ice to recede into

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false.

It’s the “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.” A New York appeals court next week will consider whether chimps should have the same rights as human beings. The extraordinary proceeding is the result of a lengthy battle by animal-rights activists who argue that animals with human qualities — including chimps — are entitled to human protections, including freedom from captivity. Steven Wise, part of the Nonhuman Rights Project, which is leading the effort, will have to convince a panel of Albany appellate judges that a chimp name Tommy is a “legal person” to get him moved from a cage

For the president’s benefit, let me specify that means a doctor who delivers babies and takes care of the lady parts.

Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him.

It is the stuff that nightmares are made of, and day by day it is getting worse. The Ebola epidemic, says Dr Margaret Chan, director-general of the World Health Organisation (WHO), is now “the greatest peacetime challenge” since the Second World War. Yet her own organisation’s tardiness, partly caused by cuts, together with reductions in--and misuse of--funds elsewhere, are largely responsible for Ebola spiralling out of control.

At present the numbers of people infected are thought to be doubling in under 30 days--and the blue-chip US Center for Disease Control and Prevention predicts that, if Ebola

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in
