Why? Because they can. Look it doesn't have to make sense. To them it's just their exercising of their divine ordained right as bureaucrats. Know your place serfs.
Forget it Jake, It's Chinatown
There's no reasoning with avowed socialists. I've stopped doing that a long time ago. Let them have their own little piece of socialist heaven and leave us alone.
Once you paid the Dane-geld, you'll never be rid of Dane.
The proper response is to crush the Dane.
Re: Crime doesn't pay...
£1.3million is the amount he stole in the form of excess order. He had to sell these items to unknown third party. I'd say he made less than 40% on that.
There is literally NOTHING preventing those shareholder to pay more taxes. Open your checkbook and write a check to Uncle Sam.
Re: The problem with their spectrum was twofold
They thought with their political connection that they could smooth any objection from FCC. Physic has a different story in store.
That Fireball In the Sky
Guess it still have some trick up its sleeves to show us?
Hey, it's his money
He can do a Joker money pyre ala The Dark Knight, and it's still his money.
Eddy Minimum here we goes.
As the excellent XKCD comic Ice Sheets http://xkcd.com/1225/ demostrates, the vast majority of North American simply cannot survive the oncoming of another Ice Age. We simply have to move down south.
Re: Rocket Science is HARD
It's one of those lets get some data on whether we can actually salvage the rocket. They didn't save the rocket, but they did managed to get some good data for future test. All of this while on someone else's dime.
Re: Thorium reactors
You will not question the ONE TRUE FAITH of Global Warming. Even as we freeze to death, it's still our fault that the world is going to boil.
I'm pretty sure that NASA have send their fair share if Irishman up to space. Now if we're to qualified it as the first Irish Rock Musician in space...
LAUSD to the rescue
Have no worry Apple, LAUSD is about to give you a boatload of money. Using construction bond (those are supposed to use for construction of school buildings, payoff in 30 years), the folks that educated me from Elementary through High School are going to buy every student in the system (many of them are either illiterate (all language) or non-English speaking) their shiny iPad that's obsolete in 3 years, at which point, over half would've already been broken or sold...
Debt and pension liability
Instagram, being a private company have little or no debt or pension liability. So the billion that Facebook buys what they think is 1 billion of worth.
Washington Post Media is loaded with long term debt and especially large amount of pension liability. Sure they have lots of real estate properties that Bezo could potentially leverage to pay off, but still, the $250 million doesn't exactly reveal the true cost.
WPM manged to suckered Barry Dillard into buying Newsweek for $1, and Dillard realized much too late that he overpaid due to debt and pension liability. Dillard have sold it to some other sucker.
Re: Very Nice.
The pilot on the remote control might get tired. But they work in shifts.
The launch crew's visual queue is not all for the pilot. Remember, the catapult operator (sitting in a semi-sunk control box), the tower (on the Island), the other folks around the deck all takes their queue from the launch crew and his visual signals. Launching a plane from the deck of a carrier is less about a pilot than everyone else around. Only after he's launched does he really take control.
Re: "revamp tax rules to close the loopholes"
Complex tax code favors those with the resource to exploit them. Just because you think you're taxing "THE MAN" doesn't mean you're doing squat.
More Gun Grabber Tactics
Why would I trust my life in a hardware designed by my enemy? Why introduce another element that can screwed up when you actually need it?
IRS Would Like to Tax the World
If it can get away with that. That's pretty much the only way they can their paws on those money.
Apple is doing what is in its Fiduciary Duty to legally minimize tax expenditure to the benefit of its shareholder. To do otherwise will invite shareholder lawsuit. Seriously, if Congress want that money back, simply lower the tax rate of repatriation profit down to something like 5% and see those money roll back. 5% of something is infinitely greater than 35% of nothing.
Go and read the short story Inconstant Moon by Larry Niven. It's the end of the world.
While his singing voice is fine, his guitar need a bit of work. Still, Bowie didn't play his version while floating in space.
This is not a joke?
April 1 was 21 days ago...
I'm pretty sure for low enough price, we can recycle RS232 cable to some other purpose other than its original purpose. It only have to make economical sense.
If it's economical to break down the component, it'll be done. Otherwise, it'll be dispose of.
Re: Not exactly business-friendly, is it?
Rule #1 for dictators in running a country: Preserve Your Own Poser by any means necessary.
There really isn't any other rules. So if it mess up people's ability to actually do business, so be it.
Re: Who wrote the laws
Nah. There are tax attorney and specialist whose sole function is to find legal method of avoiding tax.
What's mine is mine, what's yours is mine
That seems to be Apple's attitude to everyone else's IP.
Re: If Apple don't
Hey, you signed onto the privilege of using an Apple product. It's hip and it's the in thing. Who care if it didn't work?
Keeping thermometer next to the incinerator
DOES increase the temperature, who would've guess?
Re: I can imagine
booze and hookers? That's the usual explanation for embezzler.
Sure it'll work
Just tax the 1% 110% of their net worth. Isn't that what this scam is all about?
Actually it's worse.
The number such as it is only looks semi-ok because more people dropped out of the work force. That's the magic of statistics. Don't like how it comes up, stop counting some of the unemployed and you magically have reduction in unemployment
Hum. I'm pretty sure he's heard of <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lysenkoism">Lysenkoism</a>? If not, there's a helpful link.
Scammers Knows Their Mark
Hey, it worked before, it will definitely work again. The filthy mind of a mark is a wonderful thing.
Can lawyers over rule Laws of Physics?
Only in America would someone try to actually try to find that out.
Re: You are forgetting something
Slight correction. Darrell Issa represents North San Diego / Riverside County. Nowhere near the Bay Area.
Operation Fast & Furious
Darrell Issa is the thorn in Eric Holder (US Attorney General) and Barack Obama's side in his quest to get the truth regarding this Administration's undeclared war against Mexico and State of Arizona. Yeah, I'm not surprised at this turn of event.
On the Dole
Note surprise that this guy is on public assistance. Why get a real job when the other job pays so well?
Because the prosecutors decided that without warrant, placing GPS tracker on vehicle does not violate the 4th amendment protection. Without a valid warrant, they didn't have the right to do as they did.
Regardless of how innocent his purpose is, doing this is just plain stupid. I'm sure that in his boilerplate contract, there are sections dealing with proprietary code and confidentiality. Plus this is coding for the Federal Reserve. I'm surprised that the NSA didn't just black bag him quietly and avoid the publicity.
This is just a nice legal pretax that Sprint uses to get out of the deal. 30 days won't be enough time for FCC to even begin to re-look at this turkey that's been grilled many ways. As Bones McCoy always said in Star Trek: "It's dead Jim".
The article didn't mention subsidy, and I've yet encountered a green project without one. So how much government subsidy did Iberdrola Renewables got from Department of Energy and the rest of the government entities?
The Environmentalist is for all energy plans
except for the ones that works.
That's still not breaking even in terms of Energy
So where's the breaking part?
Sort of, kind of. 1/2 of the job creation is a result of Verizon workers going back to work. Factor that out and the picture (which wasn't pretty in the first place) gets much worse.
It's call Fiduciary Responsibility. Here's the Moody page http://www.efmoody.com/arbitration/fiduciary.html on its definition. ALL officers of public corporation are expected to follow it.
Epic Fail of An Article
Reading this 'article' actually reduced my intelligence. Seriously, I thought Register have more balance coverage than Apple fanboy. But apparently that's asking too much.
This is not about the sales tax increase that will expire tomorrow.
The California state government want to charge the sales tax across the board. Not that they'll actually get the money, as Amazon have demonstrated. The state will not collect on the income tax that the California bloggers will no longer be making. The sales tax won't be there since Amazon have terminated all California affiliate program. And Amazon will see a small drop in their sales, but will go on.
The morons at Sacramento just cannot stand the thought that someone somewhere in California is making money, and went out of their way to make sure that doesn't happen.
Seriously, why do people actually pay money?
