Just a couple of yes or no questions. Please keep the answer to yes or no (do not explain your answer yet) and then later when there are enough responses it can be "discussed". 1. Do corporations in this country (Take Coke for instance) pay taxes? 2. Does the USA produce enough oil to cover its own needs? there are correct answers to both of these questions, I just got into a discussion with someone that thinks these answers aren't widely known.
