    I get paid a comfortable salary by one.  I've worked for quite a few in my career.  I plan to start my own someday.  I don't plan on setting up a Double Irish, nor will I be fearful of having shareholders sue me because I didn't.  I even work in the tech industry, which is where a large numbers of tax dodges like this occur.

    I pay my fair share in taxes.  Corporations should as well.

    Like you, I don't agree with how the government spends every single dollar it receives.  But you're making the argument that because it's not 100% perfect, that it shouldn't get funded at all.  I'm not the one that's stated that what Apple has done is A-OK because it is legal.  I've never stated that I'm in favor of legal abuses of rights like our government has done.

    You, however, are in favor of one entity doing something immoral under the law (likely because you personally benefit from it), and against another entity doing things that are legal under the same set of laws.
