T-Paw (Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty) recently went on record saying that big corporations (such as Bank of America in this case) paid no taxes was because we needed to lower the corporate tax rate.
The idea that they would continue to not pay tax if they thought they could get away with it is ludicrous.  Clearly they are just not paying taxes out of principle.

I have a brick with "Pawlenty" carved on it. It appeared on top of my books while I was reading this.

Hey, don't give it back to him, he doesn't own it. It actually belongs to the corporations from whom he has it on loan. When his term loan is up, it is given back to the corporations to distribute to a new willing politician customer. That's how politics loans work.

So should I relabel it "To whom it may concern" for future use?

I hate to be a stick in the mud, can this thread not be an IRC channel?  A few is enough.

I'm trying to find a news source to back up the allegation that several of the Wisconsin Republican senators are due to attend a party at a corporate lobbying firm in Washington in the next few days.  It'd be a shame if it wasn't true, but I'm more than willing to let it be wild hyperbole.

Google news turns up this as a source: http://www.jsonline.com/blogs/news/117699163.html
A wiki page on the source shows it to be about as trustworthy as you can get for an internet source. They won 7 Pulitzer prizes for their journalism at various points, with no 'criticism' or other negative sections on the wiki.
