What is this all about? Is it the fox guarding the Hen house? Your Fourth amendment has been abridged under The Patriots Acts &II.Me thinks this is about Corporations hiding Money In Tax Havens for Rich Corporations!

Oath is also weighing in on issues related to user privacy and government access to customer data in other forums. In the U.S., congressional lawmakers recently introduced the "ECPA Modernization Act of 2017," legislation updating the Electronic Communications Privacy Act (ECPA) to more accurately reflect the public's expectation of privacy when it comes to law enforcement accessing their emails, texts and other electronic communications. Under the current ECPA law, a warrant is not required to obtain emails older than six months. The ECPA Modernization Act amends the status quo by doing away with that anachronistic temporal limitation on privacy. It also makes other important changes like requiring a warrant for all electronic communications content held by a third party and a warrant for geolocation information; mandating notification by the government to a user when their stored communications content is searched; and requiring the government to articulate a particular need for communications metadata before acquiring it. We support passage of this legislation, and other previously introduced reform bills that would improve digital privacy protections by setting clear requirements for government acquisition of customer data.

Irish politicians, business leaders, and newspapers are ardent defenders of the country's corporate tax regime. And any hint that you think Ireland is a tax haven will set off a storm of protest. They point out that Ireland does not meet the OECD's definition of tax haven. Well, that's a low standard if there ever was one. And they like to say that Ireland is not a tax haven because it is not the legal domicile of letterbox companies but a location for real investment with real business purpose. That's true. But to me, that makes their tax generosity even more offensive because instead of just reducing U.S. tax, they are reducing U.S. jobs.
