Forum Post: BK Moving to Canada

Another corporation moving to avoid high USA taxes. But here is the kicker in this one:

Canada has a better economy, and a better quality of life.

So with that being said, what is our problem here? If our taxes are higher, yet our quality of life and economy are worse, then what is going on?

Call your local Burger King, demand to speak to the manager and let them know that you'll never return. Call this number and do the same.

They are not leaving because of the present situation with taxes or other stuff-they have information that is not available to the general public.They are rats leaving a sinking ship.Good riddance.Nobody wants their shitty products here or anyplace else.Adios,amigos!

What type of information do you think they have?

I think most likely it has something to do with TPP and the other secret trade deal,and the tsunami of unemployment that is likely to follow.I can only speculate at this point but everything I can find out indicates something big is in the offing.In any case,whatever may occur,we will be on our own to deal with whatever bad outcome they are afraid of.It is possible they are subject to pressure from shareholders to jump off the Brooklyn bridge because Little Johnny down the street jumped off the Brooklyn bridge,but I don't know how that dynamic works,so IDK.

Imo its gonna come down to do we bond together and work together as communities to take care of ourselves again, or do we follow some politician off the cliff again as usual.

Im hoping for the former, but my money is on the later.

The suspense is hard for me to tolerate.My panic attack problem is back.I might need to take a break from the internet for awhile-but that would not stop me from finding out about stuff that causes me to become paralysed with panic.It is a terrible thing to know certain types of information and be unable to tell anyone about it.Good ol' #OWS Forum! Always there to hear about the Raunch no matter how bad it is! LOL

Tell me about it, 95% of the people Im friends with on facebook are local activist types, its absolutely maddening to scroll through. Very nerve wracking!

Another world is possible.I may be a screaming,legless,wino in a wheel chair,but I'm not ready to give up yet.I have an idea to get started on something that might work.It would take time to develop but a journey of a thousand miles starts with the first step.I am looking forward to S17,for real.Vincit Qui Patitur.
