The company is one of many companies that managed to pay no income tax thanks to loopholes in the tax law.
As we head into the heart of the tax season and try to figure out just how to avoid having to pay in when we file our income tax, we should all be grateful we don’t have a bill the size of a company like, say Facebook, right? Not so, reports the Huffington Post. In fact, despite making pre-tax profits of $1.1 billion, Facebook paid no income tax at all in 2012. And on top of that, it received $429 million in net tax refunds for the year. Is it time for the whole tax code to be overhauled to ensure that everyone does indeed get to pay their fair share? This is as a result of those loopholes that the president talked about getting rid of in his State of the Union speech on Tuesday. Facebook is just one of the corporate giants that is able to…

The viral video aimed at catching one of the most dangerous war criminals in the world has caught on in Holly Springs and Hickory Flat over social media sites.
Joseph Kony is the number one person wanted by the International Criminal Court for his perverse crimes in Uganda, according to a 27-minute Youtube documentary for Invisible Children that went viral this week.

In the Letters to Parents series, Sequoyah teens explain why they want you on Facebook.
Dear Mom and Dad, You have absolutely no idea how excited I was to receive your friend request via Facebook! You know I was just thinking that, being in high school and living at home with you 24/7, that we just never get any time to really communicate like we could on Facebook. I mean, we only live in the same house right? You really do need to write on my wall, comment on my pictures, and send friend requests to my girlfriend. I can totally understand why you would want to get to know my girlfriend by messaging her every day. And then, after we break up, I completely understand sending her both threats and pleas to come back to me even if I' m the one who broke up with her. I am also simply ecstatic that you can make sure that I don' t …
