No, it makes no sense. It's also untrue. Federal corporate income taxes in the US are the second-highest in the world. That fact and enormous near-term uncertainty regarding regulations and unprecedented government intrusion on all levels are the biggest reasons businesses in the US are suffering, causing massive unemployment and widespread misery. It's no wonder that XOM and GE invest everywhere but in the US. AAPL pays an effective tax rate of 30%. That's insane. By the...

...that it's so much fun to review the prognostications of the not-too-distant past! Apple should close its retail stores.

Another fail from the Mayor of Blowhard "It's the Pippin all over again" ...what's a Pippin? Apple RIP ...from Forbes??? Sometimes even the smart ones get it wrong, apparently. Random...
