There's not much that is more American than a good old Whopper. A mainstay of juicy deliciousness that makes you follow your nose to the source. Well Guess What? The source is moving - to save on taxes. See the link below the dodad.

    I don 't much like it but I kinda see why some companies think the reviled tax inversion is a good idea. But really? Burger King? Seriously? Yep, seems like one of America's most recognizable brands & stalwart champion of keeping minimum wage at the minimum is eyeing Tim Hortons' of Canada so they can move their corporate identity there. Well Bully for them. Let's trash their bottom line here then as a nice going away present.
     While I'm not a big fan of McWhoosits there are certainly options other than BK. I am sick and  tired of enough never being enough for clowns like this. Let's show them some shareholder value. AND lets' hold the political feet to the fire about this.

In a land  that some have said is divided into makers and takers, I know who the takers are & it ain't the middle class.  NOT ONE MORE!  

12:27 PM PT: Well it's funny but the links to BK corporate seem to be broken. Seems they were bought out in 2010 is what comes up for the hedge fund that bought them. Below is the corporate address - I think -

Corporate Office Address:

Burger King Holdings, Inc.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
