    Well, it's certainly obvious the increase started with Obama.

    Besides, what I like is that an editor at Breitbart made the allegations in and interview with ... Breitbart.

    Has anything on Breitbart ever turned out to be right?

    Come on, it's obvious extortion! That's why 2011 and 2012 saw far fewer cases than 2007 and 2008.

    It's appropriate that you mention the word sleaziest when you link breitbart.com since it's about the sleaziest political website out there. I would never pollute my mind with most of the trash that they put out as truth. I would be embarrassed to claim that I was a subscriber to their sleazy website. smh

    and you wonder why the chinese are getting so many of the contracts for resources in the developing countries. they don't have to worry about these types of things.

    nothing like handicapping american industry to help them create jobs here and make profits that they return to US investors.

    Where's the tolerance for diversity?
    We may consider many of the business practices in other countries unseemly; but, that is the way business is done. Why are we shoving our values down other peoples' throats? River's graph, if accurate, shows this is not an Obama issue alone - just politicians from both sides passing laws that they themselves do not have to honor. Shame on all of them.

    I don't think we're shoving our values down other countries' throats, just saying that we frown on Americans bribing officials.

    US corporations are in competition with foreign corporations for work

    foreign corporations can do business as it has always been done, ie grease the skids to get contracts/permits

    US corporations and their executives can be fined hundreds of millions and/or put in jail for doing the same thing.

    Do you think this puts the US corporations, and their employees and stockholders, at a serious competitive disadvantage?

    When these corporations lose business to foreign competition, do you think that increases or decreases the amount of employees they need and the amount of taxes they pay?

    I don't really expect any honest answers but these are questions you should consider. This isn't checkers, you can't just think one move at a time.

    Certainly that case has been made, but I don't think it's been proven at all.

    and that's just stupid

    I'm sure the folks against pervasive abortion (as a birth control method)/pedophilia/dare I say "gay marriage" would probably have the exact same position as you River - which I think is a reasonable one; however, modern thought seems to think that if you "frown upon" someone else's actions you're being intolerant and creating a hostile environment thereby forcing your narrow minded beliefs on them.

    We all believe in laws - disagreement is where to draw the line and who gets to draw it as well as erase or ignore it.

    Certainly laws dictate behavior. But I was referring to the claim that our law about bribery shoves our ways down the throats of other countries.
