Guns are banned at schools. This could not have happened:
A teacher at White Elementary was arrested Monday for having a gun on the school premises, police said Tuesday.
The 31-year-old man was seen with a gun by someone at the school, 5148 S. Kansas, which is south of Hydraulic and 47th Street South, Lt. Randy Reynolds said. Principal Marcia Shepler called police about 12:30 p.m., according to a police report.
Tax avoidance is perfectly legal. I do it all the time. You should too. Unless you’re stupid. Any CFO should too.
Tax evasion is illegal. The senate dragged Apple bigwigs for a show trial and accused them of not paying their fair share or some other hippie tree-hugging nonsense that belongs on playgrounds or liberal get togethers but not in the real world.
Rand Paul is embarrassed and offended by his colleagues who are bullying Apple. Apple broke no laws and the senate tried to shame them for not paying more taxes voluntarily, I guess:
And, though I cannot find the video for it, Carl Levin beclowns himself in response (here’s a sort of summary). Seems he, and every politician at the hearing who is not Rand Paul, thinks that it’s the government’s money and, damn you Apple, how dare you not let them have what is theirs. And he will not apologize for his stupid assertion that somehow complying with tax law means Apple is doing something wrong.
Apple has lots of cash. He wants it to dole out as he chooses.
Carl Levin should be tarred and feathered.
Also, McCain acts stupid, drools on self, poops a little.
A group that supports gun control filed suit Thursday against a north Georgia town that recently passed a law requiring gun ownership that it said is mostly symbolic.
The Washington-based Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence filed a federal lawsuit against the town of Nelson, about 50 miles north of Atlanta, claiming the law is unconstitutional. The suit contends the Second Amendment doesn’t require anyone to have a gun, and government cannot require citizens to arm themselves.
“Forcing residents to buy guns they do not want or need won’t make the city of Nelson or its people any safer, and only serves to increase gun sales and gun industry profits,” Jonathan Lowy of the Brady Center said in a statement.
