IRS Wants Another Bite of Apple: Scott Ott Podcast #14

Another bite of the Apple
Logo: Rob Janoff, 1977

Is Apple CEO Tim Cook ripping off the American people by keeping offshore profits off shore so Apple doesn’t have to pay the “repatriation” tax. In episode 14 of Scott Ott Podcast, I call for conservatives to rally around this liberal business leader, who delivered what I think may be the quote of 2015 in response to the demand that he bring that money home and pay nearly $60 billion in tax on it.

This episode of Scott Ott Podcast (#14) contains audio excerpts from Scott Ott Show originally streamed live on YouTube December 22, 2015.


Scott Ott Show, Ep. 11


  • Steve Harvey’s Miss Universe blunder made him my new hero.
  • Stephen Colbert flounders while Jimmy Fallon flourishes. Illustration: Mandy Patinkin.
  • Tina Fey is done apologizing for offensive jokes. Yay.
  • Apple’s “hiding” offshore profits to avoid 40% U.S. tax. Let’s praise Tim Cook for this reasonable choice.
  • Active shooter training is changing, and that’s good. Here’s why.
  • What if your surrogate mother refuses to have an abortion?

All of this, plus, major appliance repair and Christmas singing on Scott Ott Show, Ep. 11, which originally streamed live on YouTube, December 22, 2015.
