George Will has an excellent article on the idiotic political grandstanding currently being done against the rational practice of “tax inversion”. 

In particular, note this paragraph, where Will highlights the contradictory whining of the left who want corporations to both be people and not be people. 

Progressives say corporations using inversions are unpatriotic, which is amusing. When the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision stipulated that Americans do not forfeit their First Amendment right to political advocacy when they act together through corporations (including, and especially, incorporated nonprofit advocacy groups), progressives ridiculed the idea that corporations should be treated as people. Now, progressives charge that corporations resorting to inversion are not behaving like patriotic people.

People – and I do mean people – you can’t have it both ways. Until you can figure out your own position on positions like this, then, well, maybe you should just shut up. 

Logical coherency. It has to start with logical coherency…
