Why is it that race is always brought up when discussing the present presidents qualifications. There is more to being a president than what color his skin is. Does anyone realize that Obama has never run a business or actually held a job that was not publically funded? If anyone has actually dealt with the real world requirements of working for a check that is dependent on the results of their work then you might know what I am referring to. If you do not meet deadlines and schedules your job will surely disappear unless you are related to a member of the company or the government. This is what is causing problems in our country and economy today. Either be a responsible employee and or parent and actually perform your duties or be a worthless member of our society. The worthless members of our society have outnumbered those of us who actually work for a living and are responsible for what we do.
Canada: there is no general rule on the deductibility or non-deductibility of kickbacks and bribes. Hence the rule is that necessary expenses for obtaining the income (contract) are deductible. Payments to members of the public service and domestic administration of justice, to officers and employees and those charged with the collection of fees, entrance fees etc. for the purpose to entice the recipient to the violation of his official duties, can not be abated as business expenses as well as illegal payments according to the Criminal Code.
