A.K.A »Tøøts« ∆ »Ånark€€« & »Jåh Mårlëy« § I'm a man of many titles . . i'm an artist / freelance writer / journalist / photographer / musician / martial artist from New Orleans & and the list is steadily augmenting for i am always seeking to expand my knowledge . . . through knowledge comes mastery . . . with mastery comes the ability to create .and. with the ability to manifest energy comes power . .
i am a perfectly peaceful being however if you somehow find a way onto my dark side, like Anakin, I am a remorseless spirit . . .

on this blog you will mainly find a collage of pictures and writings that i feel purvey my beliefs, my inner spirituality and some things in life that humor me . . being the lover of art and activism that i am, you will find plenty of artwork however you will also find a plethora of provocative writing . . much of what i post may seem like i'm stirring up trouble but i assure you it is the truth . . "as steel sharpens steel, man sharpens man", so consider this blog as Xcaliber to Arthur or a Lightsaber to a Master of the Force, at ya neck like Dooku if yu not actively spreading peace love and respect . .

10 Big Companies That Pay No Taxes (and Their Favorite Politicians) | Mother Jones
Between 2008 and 2011, 26 major American corporations paid no net federal income taxes despite bringing in billions in profits, according to a new report (PDF) from the nonprofit research group Citizens for Tax Justice. CTJ calculates that if the companies had paid the full 35 percent corporate tax rate, they would have put more than $78 billion into government coffers.
