As Huntsman runs, family firm missed paying tax 4.1.2012 Salt Lake Tribune
By Lee Davidson The Salt Lake Tribune Published Jan 3, 2012 04:50PM MDT Jon Huntsman has complained during his presidential campaign that too-high corporate taxes hurt business and job creation. His family’s chemical firm — the Huntsman Corp. — may have found an unorthodox way to deal with that, at least temporarily. It did not pay its 2011 Salt Lake County property taxes on time for its world headquarters. The bill: $195,100, including penalties so far. “I’m sure it was just an oversight. It will be taken care of,” said Tom Muir, a vice president at Huntsman Corp. ... ...

Citizen Bopp 2.1.2012 American Prospect
Art by John Ritter (Source Photo: Evan Vucci / AP) W edged up against the Illinois border on the banks of the Wabash River, Terre Haute, Indiana, has seen better days. Many factories have closed, and downtown has too many vacant storefronts. But there are signs of activity: Indiana State University has grown, the federal prison still provides reliable jobs—and the ten-lawyer litigation machine that occupies the offices of attorney James Bopp Jr. at the corner of 6th and Wabash is going full tilt. Bopp is best known as the lawyer behind a case involving a 90-minute film made in 2008 attacking then–presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. Bopp’s suit ultimately resulted in the landmark 2010 Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission decision, in which the Supreme Court held that corporate funding of independent political broadcasts such as the movie and its promotional ads were legitimate expressions of free speech and couldn’t be limited by campaign-finance laws. The ...

Open Thread for Night Owls: Newt Gingrich, amateur 2.1.2012 Daily Kos
The latest from this guy who fairly oozes with the belief he's the smartest fellow in the race was to dig himself deeper into the climate-change denier camp this weekend: At a town hall meeting [in Atlantic, Iowa] Saturday afternoon, Gingrich delivered his neatly segmented remarks on taxes, regulations and an overarching economy, but when asked to explain his position on global warming, he delivered a new line. “I’m an amateur paleontologist,” Gingrich said. “I spend a lot of time looking at the Earth’s temperature for a very long time. I’m a lot harder to convince than just looking at a computer model.” As Brad Johnson chortled : Professional paleontologists, who have spent a lot more time than Gingrich looking at the Earth’s temperature, are convinced. “Few credible scientists now doubt that humans have influenced the documented rise in global temperatures since the Industrial Revolution,” the American Quarternary Society wrote in 2006. It's unlikely Gingrich really doubts it ...

The Year of the Lord’s Favor 2.1.2012 NewsTrust Yahoo Pipes Feed
enlarge This new generation of Republicans, the self-styled Tea Partiers, want to repeal just about all of the 20th century. They don’t like Teddy Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, FDR, LBJ, or any of those Kennedy brothers. They say they want to repeal child labor laws, the 40 hour work week, food safety laws, environmental laws, the income tax, direct election of Senators, Social Security, Medicare, the minimum wage, banking regulation, Pell Grants, Head Start, civil rights, voting rights, and just about every other form of progress the 1900s brought us. You know, William Buckley used to say that “a conservative is someone who stands athwart history, yelling stop.” These guys are standing athwart history yelling “go back!” They will happily shut down government at the drop of a hat, for any reason at any time- even when they get what they asked for in terms of policy concessions. Backed by the 1%, the Wall Street elite and the captains of industry who destroyed the economy but are deeply hurt and ...

Obama Signs Off on NDAA "With Serious Reservations" 1.1.2012 NewsTrust Yahoo Pipes Feed
enlarge Two days before the deadline, President Obama signed a defense spending bill into law - while admitting he has "serious reservations with certain provisions" related to how suspected terrorists are held and questioned. In a written statement, Mr. Obama makes clear he objects to sections in the National Defense Authorization Act that "regulate the detention, interrogation and prosecution of suspected terrorists." Despite his objections, Mr. Obama says he signed the measure, known by its initials NDAA, because it authorizes needed funding to defend the nation, support the military and renew "vital national security programs." Among the provisions to which the president objects is a grant of permission for the indefinite military detention of terror suspects by the military. Mr. Obama said he didn't ask for such authority and doesn't want it. Flat out, the provisions suck, no matter what kind of rationalizations put on them. They codify measures put in place by the Bush ...
