    It's all hilarious, but the lawsuit in the best part. When I heard Cuomo talking about that this morning I literally laughed out loud. Unconstitutional, you say? GTFO.

    BofA sucks. It sucks for employees and sucks for consumers. You need to go to a good bank, Dude.

    Upon rejecting the Beatles, Dick Rowe told Brian Epstein of the January 1, 1962 audition for Decca, which signed Brian Poole and the Tremeloes instead.

    I didn't know that athletes, actors, writers, producers and directors were considered the middle class...

    Apple is going to pay $38 billion in taxes... and will be hiring 20,000 new employees:

    It looks like Apple is bringing back home nearly all of its $250 billion in foreign cash

    Apple just announced on Wednesday it will bring back hundreds of billions of dollars from overseas to fund investment in the U.S.


    "Apple, already the largest US taxpayer, anticipates repatriation tax payments of approximately $38 billion as required by recent changes to the tax law. A payment of that size would likely be the largest of its kind ever made," the company said in the release.


    Using the new 15.5 percent repatriation tax rate, the $38 billion tax payment disclosed by Apple means they are planning a $245 billion repatriation.
