    To be honest, I can't even come close to getting my head around this.

    And these companies should be avoided at all costs.
    Major companies including Cisco Systems Inc., Pfizer Inc. and Coca-Cola Co. say they’ll turn over most gains from proposed corporate tax cuts to their shareholders, undercutting President Donald Trump’s promise that his plan will create jobs and boost wages for the middle class.

    Guys,

    This is horrible. People are receiving bonuses, increased wages and a lower tax rate putting more money in their pocket. How sad.

And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan
