    FedGov Obama wants 'Economic Patriotism,' a ban on business HQ's off-shoring.

    The White House sent out a letter to the Senate Finance Committee late Tuesday, calling on Congress to consider a “new sense of economic patriotism” — code for a ban on big businesses moving headquarters overseas to save on taxes. Treasury Secretary Jack Lew penned the letter to Chairman Ron Wyden, Oregon Democrat, requesting congressional members to set a rule against U.S.-based companies from enacting “inversion” transactions simply to change their tax domicile and save on taxes, Politico reported.

    The first step on to the slippery-slope to FEMA stalags for citizens fleeing and the psychologization of dissent.

    U.S. v. Minker, 350 US 179, at page 187
    "Because of what appears to be a lawful command on the surface, many citizens, because
    of their respect for what only appears to be a law, are cunningly coerced into waiving their
    rights, due to ignorance." (Paraphrased)

    So every foreign company will either have stop doing business with us or move their HQ inside... I don't see any doing the latter.
