Again, that's on them to figure on how to get out of bankruptcy.  If they cannot, they'll suffer the consequences of their own actions.

@  korniceman3000 (12:07:42 PM) Delta and AA use bankruptcy more as a protection rather than a means to pay back what they owe LOL. Not surprising since they hire some of the most powerful legal teams.

@  korniceman3000 (12:01:35 PM) Plus, Delta doesn't have a liquidity issue like AA. They sit on at least 45% their earnings. The remainder is for buybacks, dividend payouts, and outside investment. None of which is used on employees.
@  Emperor Ryu (12:00:03 PM)

Medical insurance is another story altogether.  ^_^

@  Emperor Ryu (11:59:12 AM)

No, clearly they didn't know, which is why their downsizing.  You've never heard of false advertising before companies sign contracts to work together?  And when they break it off, it's on bad terms anyways.

@  Emperor Ryu (11:57:24 AM)

If so, then I can understand why you're griping about them after all this time.  ^_^

@  korniceman3000 (11:52:37 AM) LOL They don't have any trouble managing their money. They already weathered the so-called bankruptcy issue over a decade ago. LOL Amazon knows EXACTLY what they are hiring and using a sub-contracted company is just one way to shield against having direct liability and being held accountable. They knew of how their sub-employees were being treated and the work related dangers. I remember some managers had emails in a 60 Minutes report that showed high lvl admin knew but didn't take any actions against the contracted companies.
@  Emperor Ryu (11:50:25 AM)

That'll change soon, korniceman3000.  A huge amount of comments that I have read over the past few weeks now want these pharmaceutical drugs to be made in the U.S.  Did you know about the huge differences in drug pricing between the U.S. and other countries?  And thanks to the President of the United States and his Administration, the drug prices are going down.  ^.^

Easy catch up.  ^_^  Moving on to brighter things now, . . . ^.^

<<<  Oops, didn't realize that anime song link was shorter.  My bad.  >.<  Here's the full version, . . . ^.^  https://www.youtube....h?v=EhAX68uF6NU

<<<  Checking videos now.  ^_^

@  korniceman3000 (11:43:48 AM) Sadly I did know about the fact that most of the pharmaceutical drugs and vitamins are manufactured in China (as high as 80% in some estimates). A lot also from India, Egypt, and parts of the Middle East. FDA only manages to check a small percentage. Not a surprise since our pharmaceutical industry only cares about profits and the cost of manufacturing drugs there are so low that it is highly unlikely any of them will ever be made in the US.
@  Emperor Ryu (11:43:20 AM)

ROFTLMAO!  Those must be the low end audit agencies if that's true, korniceman3000.  Again, it's not a bad thing for businesses to have tax breaks.  And they have to pay for the operational costs, not the taxes.  Come on.  ^_^  Tehehehe.  Did you not read what I typed about Delta and American Airlines riding that bankruptcy for some time now?  Why complain about tax benefits while these companies have a tough time managing their own money?  These arguments you're presenting is really out of place, to be honest.  And still yet, they have to pay back loans nonetheless, regardless if they have to buyback stock.  Just look at the bigger picture instead of nip-picking and ignoring what's really going on.  I can sum all of this in a single paragraph and move on.  ^_^  Yes, I've heard of Amazon laying off hundreds of workers.  And those warehouses are actually smaller contractors they work with, so it's not Amazon directly anyways.

@  korniceman3000 (11:32:33 AM) Worst off are Amazon pilots who get paid below industry standards. And I'm sure you already heard about how Amazon screws over it's employees and the poor conditions of their warehouses, work environment, etc. Also, Amazon is under investigation in the UK, France, Germany, Japan, Ireland, Singapore, Luxembourg, Italy, Spain, Portugal, and China for corporate tax evasion. This clearly isn't a coincidence

@  korniceman3000 (11:18:52 AM) At least in Delta's case they paid their pilots double overtime, especially due to shortage of planes due to 737 MAX grounding. Not AA or United, their regional pilots continue to be overworked. Plus there's a shortage of pilots in US because demand is high overseas and the pay is better attracting many younger pilots.
@  korniceman3000 (11:10:34 AM) And given their record earnings including $47 billion in profits from 2013-2018, you would think they would pay back some of that money they owed. Nope, they used it for stock buy backs while making their existing pilots work longer hours, more shifts, while hiring less staff (particularly America Airlines domestic flights, high volume, few pilots, little in-between rest time).
@  korniceman3000 (11:03:20 AM) Those all get major tax deductions. Did I also mention Delta terminated their pensions for pilots since they filed for bankruptcy in 2006? Many of those pilots got royally screwed in all their retirement benefits and to this day Delta, still hasn't paid many of their pilot retirement benefits. With AA, they terminated their pensions after 2011 bankruptcy and many of their pilots and employees had their benefits and pensions terminated or frozen. Talks are still ongoing to help them get back the money the airlines owe them.
@  korniceman3000 (10:56:28 AM) LMAO!!! As I said before, Delta and AA and other major corporations get major tax write offs for payroll tax deductions, healthcare, operational costs etc.
@  korniceman3000 (10:45:06 AM) @ Keitaro A lot of audit agencies have good workers doing their jobs. The problem is convincing their bosses to go along with their investigations and not having them being swept under the rug. The only time companies get held accountable is when undercover agents or whistle blowers pop the lid on a companies internal operations that leads to a federal investigation. Even then, the penalties are mostly fines that seem like a slap on the wrist. Then its back to business as usual.

Delta and American Airlines are well-known for riding cost to the edge of bankruptcy.  So why make it like their snobby-secured-rich or something when they're just trying to do their jobs?  And as for the tax weapons, would you rather tax a business to death, like how New York and California are?  It's sheer madness that almost brings back that saying, "taxation without representation" back from the Revolutionary War, korniceman3000.  >.<  Come on.  Just chill.  The relief bill is passed, and there's no point in arguing further about it.  It's done.  Period!  Be more worried about the spread of the coronavirus than trying to tax the rich to death.  Since when was an accelerated depreciation a crime?  O_O  Did it mention The Economic Recovery Tax Act of 1981?  I don't recall.  Bad investments leads to company losses, that's the reality of it.  What is this?  Some sort of adult version of pretend economics that a pilot's pensions won't be affected?

Technically?  You're still not looking at the whole picture of how the airlines stay afloat.  I did mention operational costs at the beginning of all of this.  Now add taxes, paying wages, medical, insurance, retirement, supplies, equipment, maintenance, fuel, audits, etc, etc.  It isn't cheap running an airlines business, korniceman3000.  >_<  Again, it's not a crime for them to secure their business.  It's even good for the market some times.  Dare I say, it protects them from hostile take-overs from rival competitors, especially when it comes to the value of their shares.

@  korniceman3000 (12:30:14 PM) Though I'm guessing their so-called excess stock compensation is similar to what the airlines do.
@  korniceman3000 (12:28:56 PM) I can only imagine the complexity of Amazon's accounting firm and what they did to go from a Net profit of $10.8 billion to paying zero taxes.

@  korniceman3000 (12:22:19 PM) https://www.accounti...preciation.html
@  korniceman3000 (12:22:16 PM) Just reading some of these descriptions makes you want to hire an accountant.
@  korniceman3000 (12:21:18 PM) There are literally so many ways companies can use the tax code it's mind boggling and scary.
@  korniceman3000 (12:05:12 PM) I guess that's the magic of having a publicly traded major corporation. You can use stocks to generate imaginary value while avg. people and small businesses cannot and must rely on physical money and assets.
@  korniceman3000 (11:50:24 AM) So that confirms what I stated.
@  korniceman3000 (11:48:33 AM) Amazon themselves said this: " “We have tax benefits relating to excess stock-based compensation deductions and accelerated depreciation deductions that are being utilized to reduce our U.S. taxable income.”
@  korniceman3000 (11:48:02 AM) https://www.snopes.c...ome-taxes-2018/
@  korniceman3000 (11:47:56 AM) As for Amazon, they clearly have some kind of strategy similar to what I wrote but only their accountants know as that won't be made public.
@  korniceman3000 (11:42:31 AM) Filing for bankruptcy basically shielded Delta by wiping out a lot of their debt from bad investments. It protected them from having to pay taxes years into the future based on projected future losses and allowed them to terminate their pilot pensions.
@  korniceman3000 (11:30:54 AM) What I described was basically what the article calls "accelerated depreciation".
@  watch25h (11:21:07 AM) https://www.youtube....h?v=9_j_T_uJH2k
@  korniceman3000 (11:18:53 AM) American Airlines was well known for filing Chapter 11 bankruptcy to cut labor costs and eliminate unprofitable parts of their business that couldn't sell prior to bankruptcy.
@  korniceman3000 (11:10:57 AM) Corporate tax accountants will tell you there are so many weapons they can employ to help a company reduce taxation, options that aren't available to individuals or small companies. It's why so many avg Americans have to fudge their tax deductions to squeeze a little more out from IRS
@  korniceman3000 (11:08:31 AM) At the same time by buying back their own stock and re-inflating their stock value, they can also count that as an investment, allowing them to be taxed through capital gains tax law, a far lower rate than corporate taxes. They also have the best aviation accountants to justify corporate tax deductions by increasing operational and employee expenses etc. This is just the tip of the iceberg on how they operate.
@  korniceman3000 (10:56:51 AM) By inflating their numbers through those projections and stock buy backs, they can create an estimated loss in income without actually losing anything.
@  korniceman3000 (10:55:27 AM) At the same time, they technically never actually lost anything because the money was generated on paper only. However, the amt. they receive in tax rebates is actual physical cash from the govt.
@  korniceman3000 (10:54:20 AM) That on paper money is not physical liquid cash though. Then 2009 first quarter hits and they under perform and only get 15% increase, 5% less than their projected earnings. They can then count that as a loss for a tax write off. Lets say this results in the stock dropping from $15 per share back to $12 per share. Again they can count that as a loss and use that for a tax write off.
@  korniceman3000 (10:48:56 AM) Lets say it is 2008. Delta has stock valued at $10 a share. They earned $1 billion dollars by years end. The company then deliberately over projects to shareholders that they expect a 20% increase in profits the next quarter (but the real estimate is only 10% increase or less). That drives up Delta stock value on paper money to let say $15 per share.
@  korniceman3000 (10:42:57 AM) Technically, Delta didn't actually "lose" billions. They use forecast projections the years before to attribute to that loss.

I'm not surprised when it comes to New York, korniceman3000.  Check this out, . . . https://www.foxnews....ntrusive-audits

The Guardian still likes to spin their lying narrative against the Man in Office.  He's being realistically optimistic.  Pelosi and her moronic followers has done way more damage to the country.  It was her fault that delayed that $2.2 trillion bill.  https://www.theepoch...ll_3283887.html  And she had the sheer and utter audacity to blame him for the coronavirus deaths?  Who is she trying to fool, when Democrat-run States allowed infected into the country under Sanctuary Cities and calling him a racists for blocking any arrivals from China.  >.<

@  Emperor Ryu (02:05:12 AM)

Comparing rebates to the average person whose not rich is a huge difference, korniceman3000.  Instead of just looking at their tax returns and earnings without looking at how much they spent in taxes, why not look at the entire tax system the rich have to face annually.  Here, start with this small piece, . . . ^_^  https://www.brooking...tax-them-more/  Now stroll on over to this next one, . . . ^.^  https://www.heritage...e-taxes-you-do  "Pay a larger amount" without stating a single tax dollar amount for your rebuttal?  This is what is called an evasive argument.  And what I've provided, the tax numbers don't lie.  That Delta article firstly pointed out they've lost "billions" while trying to force the point they didn't pay any federal tax?  Are you kidding me?  o_o

@  Emperor Ryu (01:48:02 AM)

The hospitality and travel industries are getting hit the hardest during this outbreak/pandemic, meaning they're not getting their usual amount of income.  You have to think from their point of views in trying to keep their business afloat in this uncertain market and the serious circumstances happening right now.  If your business was facing a massive income drop and customers not taking up on your services, won't you try to find ways to upkeep your reserves or most of it, or would you rather be subtle about having none whatsoever and face filing a Chapter 9 Bankruptcy claim in the near future?  You can forget worker strikes when there's no airline that has no money in the end, korniceman3000.  By the way, why so focused on the airline industry anyways?  Did something happen?  What did the airline industry to that was so wrong?  Is staying rich a crime?

Hello SBox.  ^_^

Let's put this into more perspective here, korniceman3000, shall we?  ^_^  $4 trillion combined means there's monetary discrimination towards those who've either earned their fortunes or inherited it from those who'd earned nevertheless.  What they do with their money is no different than what the rest of us do with our money.  If they can legally do that to help, work with the government, and/or boost the economy which will aid their business, there's absolutely no need to prosecute them in any way shape or form.  As for loans, they have to pay back regardless and they have to pray there isn't any interests rates attached to them.

@  korniceman3000 (11:58:46 AM) It's like a long term way to defer taxes (if not entirely) + these taxes are offset to the consumer and shareholders allowing them a pass. Sadly as bad as Delta is, they still pay better dividends than a lot of other corporations who hoard their cash like Amazon.

@  korniceman3000 (11:33:27 AM) Last year, over 80 major corporations found enough loopholes in the tax law to not pay any taxes, including Chevron, Amazon, Netflix etc. Amazon even managed to even get a $129 million tax REBATE.
@  korniceman3000 (11:14:48 AM) American Airlines is asking for $12 billion. I can expect Delta and United to eventually ask similar figures. That's already two thirds of the amt. granted for airline industry bailout. That $58 billion isn't going to last very long.
@  korniceman3000 (11:12:18 AM) You can bet there will be another airline strike + a whole series of layoffs and threats of bankruptcy in an effort to downsize and not use that money for their employees.
@  korniceman3000 (11:09:41 AM) Makes a hell of lot more sense.
@  korniceman3000 (11:09:25 AM) https://www.fool.com...s-on-airli.aspx
@  korniceman3000 (11:09:19 AM) You have flight attendants, pilots, and other employees asking the govt. to "provide direct payroll subsidies to airline industry workers, including pilots and flight attendants but also airport service workers" and not to give that money to the airline execs to distribute.
@  korniceman3000 (11:07:04 AM) American spent the vast majority of their physical liquid earnings and Delta about 50% to inflate their stock value on paper. Now the collapse of the stock market caused their imaginary money to disappear and they have no physical money for payroll and operations and want real physical cash loans from taxpayers to bail them out while still saying they will have to do massive layoffs because they can't meet their "projected" future earnings....
@  korniceman3000 (11:03:58 AM) Now the airlines want to use tax dollars as well. They've spent over $39 billion in stock buybacks over the last 5 years.
@  korniceman3000 (11:02:23 AM) Money they were supposed to use for lending but didn't leaving a void in liquidity that forced federal govt. to pump $500 billion in December and another $500 billion in March for short term funding. Not because banks didn't have the money, they just didn't want to use their own money.
@  korniceman3000 (10:49:28 AM) It's $4 trillion combined in cash for all the US non-financial corporations. On top of their cash reserves, they also have a trillion in financial physical assets + the existing value in their stock. This means they have tremendous leverage they can use to borrow from banks which also sit one ridiculous amts of cash.

I hope she recovers from it, cinderella@yoona.  I hope she didn't accidentally get anyone else infected.

Are you referring to the 1982 Securities and Exchange Commission who passed rule 10b-18, which created a legal process for buybacks and opened the floodgates for companies to start repurchasing their stocks en masse and are one of the two most important factors behind the all time highs in the stock market (The other is the Fed, whose policies have allowed companies to issue debt with record low yields, allowing them to fund these trillions in buybacks.), Keitaro88?

@  Emperor Ryu (01:24:11 AM)

Again, he's the Commander-In-Chief of the U.S. Military.  Does anybody recognize the chain of command in a military hierarchy here?  It reminds me of this scene, . . . https://www.youtube....h?v=DhbObZEF0Mc  ^_^  He's not wrong about the ratings, korniceman3000.  He's just mentioning a different way to look at how important his White House Briefings on the coronavirus is to the people.  If you'd paid any attention to this interview, . . . https://www.youtube....h?v=-xytW1bgB8I  It covers the part whereas bias media outlets regularly cut off his briefings to insert their own fake-ass narratives to paint the man wrong.  The lying media knows that by fully airing his briefings, despite themselves getting more viewership and an increase in ratings, they would inadvertently give him more creditability and support that's directly against their hatred for the guy and wanting the people to be angry at him forever.

@  Emperor Ryu (01:10:28 AM)

$4 trillion each, korniceman3000?  O_O  Let's be real here, businesses in general, whether they be huge or small, all have a role to play in the U.S. and Internationally in keeping the country going strong.  Knock that pin down, and we'll see a financial collapse that'll dwarf all previous economic disasters combined.  You have to understand they too pay taxes, a rather larger amount than other people working when it comes to these huge corporations.  That's their money, not anyone else's.  If you were rich and had people calling for your bankruptcy for no good reasons, would you think this would be fair?  Please also note, they too are devoting their own business resources to help fight the coronavirus.  Sometimes, I swear, it can be sicken to hear economic discrimination on monetary classes when we should all be focusing on working together to defeat this enemy that's one billionth our size and putting up a rather tough fight in this war.

@  korniceman3000 (11:32:55 AM) @ keitaro I'm sure the military already has a game plan. The only problem is whether Trump agrees with it or not and when he decides to act.
@  korniceman3000 (11:29:59 AM) Even now, many corporations are sitting on a huge pile of cash reserves (U.S. non-financial corporations have $4 trillion dollars) while expecting to use free tax dollars to fund their operations. But then again, why would they bother to use their own money with a $2 trillion govt. stimulus in play. Taxpayers being taken for a ride again...
@  korniceman3000 (11:24:30 AM) @ keitaro Carly is definitely on point. Corporations like major air carriers should not be allowed to use tax dollars for payroll and operational expenditures if they hadn't first tried to secure their own line of credit from major banks or leveraged some of their assets as collateral, especially how most of the major corporations used the savings from the Trump tax cut to buy back stocks instead of hiring more workers or increasing wages.
@  korniceman3000 (11:10:27 AM) The scary part is the incorrect testing in both locations in Miami was carried out by the National Guard as those were their testing facilities. Just today, news reported a lot of people needed re-testing because they used the wrong kind of testing kits. It's been an ongoing issue the past week (-__-)
@  glider003 (03:41:24 AM) the latest arc of Great Escape 3, the Darkness Mansion is the scariest stage yet. https://www.youtube....h?v=7R8at3veZic
