More on (no pund intended) the myth of American exceptionalism:

12 Oct

A recent report found that untaxed or undertaxed offshore holdings amount to an estimated $620 billion owed to the U.S. taxpayers. That is just the tip of the hypocrisy iceberg. (Photo: rolffimages/Bigstock via Citizens for Tax Justice)

If we are so exceptional and God’s gift to the planet why

… do we have Corporations Hoarding $2 Trillion in Profits, Asking Taxpayers to Pay Their Employees’ Wages?

… do we mourn American Lives, But Not Foreign Lives?

… do we Care About Unborn Children, But Not Living Children?

… do we Demand Self-Reliance of People Who Can’t Find a Living-Wage Job

… do we Turn Away People Who Were Displaced by Our “Free Trade” Pacts?
