    Now this article just talks about a few businesses from Minnesota. Its laughable, more like criminal, that St. Jude Medical is listed.
    Just to be clear, I think the article is talking about St. Jude Medical, Inc., which is a company that makes medical devices. The stock symbol is STJ.

    I don't think there's any relation to St. Jude Medical Center (a hospital in California) or St. Jude Children's Research Hospital (in Memphis, Tennessee) since both facilities are non-profit.

    Change the law, it's as simple as that. There is nothing "EVIL" in a business trying to keep more of it's money if it does so according to the letter of the law.

    Most people would rather villainize the companies that are complying with laws rather than change the laws themselves.

    So the welfare person that works the system to benefit themselves, we don't villainize them?

    I don't know about you, but I wouldn't if they are following the laws.

    It's easy to say now, but something tells me that you probably have a different opinion of them. Personally, I wouldn't mind if we put an end to all the loopholes and start holding entities accountable. I doubt it'll ever happen though.

    Do you have reason to think that, or are you just being argumentative?

    It seems that the people that think that most companies deserve to keep more of their money and find as many loopholes as possible because they "earned it" tend to look down their nose at the poor people that take advantage of every loophole they can to feed/shelter/clothe themselves.

    When I was in high school I actually worked at a store where a woman bought about $200 worth of groceries and not just basic items, but stuff like Filet Mignon and other high dollar foods and had 1 bar of soap with her groceries. The register couldn't ring the bar of soap as a food item so she had a balance remaining after she paid for her food. She whipped out a big roll of $100 bills and proceeded to pay for a bar of soap with one of the $100 dollars. It was obvious to me that she was gaming the system. Better policy needs to be written for anyone that tries to take advantage of a system in place that's meant to help.

    If she's making money under the table, being paid cash and not reporting the income as required by whatever assistance program she's on, then I would against that. Or it's also possible she works at a place that pays every two weeks, she simply cashes out her checks, and that would explain a legit reason for having a seemingly large amount of money at once. Of course without knowing the full story, I can't really have an opinion on that one person.
