Summary: A reminder of the Abramoff-Gates affairs and the corporate loopholes they created
THE following video we’ve just found is blaming Bill Gates without quite naming his very unique role in the scandals around visas, possibly best known for participation from a convicted criminal Jack Abramoff and from Gates (Abramoff even worked for Preston Gates & Ellis). They stabbed the public in the back in order to enrich themselves (with investments in BP and other such ‘good’ causes), all while pretending that “Americans” (US citizens) lack the necessary skills, essentially insulting their countrymen’s intelligence with self-serving lies.
Here is Lou Dobbs speaking about the subject not so long ago.
Gates is personally (but partly) responsible for these laws, so giving him more power — power that Aldous Huxley articulately warned about many years ago — is a huge mistake. It’s just something to remember.
Microsoft is not good for US employment, either. Microsoft hires large PR agencies to fool the public and spread the very opposite message this year. When will Gates and Microsoft start paying tax like the rest of the public? They both receive special exemptions nobody wants to talk about. When people on TV are talking about tax going up and going down they rarely (or just never) talk about whose tax; if they do, they get accused of reigniting class wars. Just before his recent death, Howard Zinn remarked on the fact that in the past few years alone, the super-wealthy of the US escaped $300,000,000,000 in taxes. █
