    But it's not hypocritical to expect someone making lots of money to pay lots of taxes, and to focus criticism proportionally upon them.

    Linking to a news article is journalism in the same sense that putting a Big Mac on a paper plate is cooking.

      I don't know about you, but I know I take every tax deduction I legally can rather than voluntarily paying more in taxes than I have to.

      Can you provide evidence that Apple has been active in lobbying for the tax loopholes they're taking advantage of?

      If not, then the laws that allow them to pay less in taxes aren't their fault—and their taking advantage of those laws is no different than your or my taking all the tax deductions that are legally available to us.
