Why is that everyone is blaming Google, Apple and other successful tech companies for following the tax rules and paying fewer taxes when it is the U.S. Congress who writes the rules? Where is the ANGER at Congress for not passing tax legislation that prevents loopholes like these? Am I the only one who thinks Google, Apple, etc. are blameless and should be praised for the jobs they give and the taxes they do pay?

Anybody know of a good full service brokerage/fund house that will service our company Simple IRAs at no charge?

Fidelity Investments is charging our employees $25 per year. Vanguard charges $25 per year but will credit it back if the employee has >$50K @ Vanguard.

I am going to take all of our money and put it somewhere other than Fidelity, got any good suggestions?

Thanks.

Did you vote yet? I voted, you need to vote too, either to vote with me or to cancel me out. A democracy only works when everyone votes. If you do not like anyone running for a particular office, write someone else in and/or vote for the other offices, but VOTE. Please vote.

Those of you in small businesses, want to know why you feel the economy has hurt you more than your larger brethren? Check out http://newyorkfed.org/research/current_issues/ci17-4.html very interesting.

Introduction
My wife and I have two companies, RingMaster Software Corporation and Spring Above Marketing here in marvelous Burlington, Vermont where we also try to grow all of the vegetables and fruit we eat. Thinking seriously of chickens now and then other animals. It is called urban homesteading :-) .
