Apple "Apple, the world's most profitable technology company, doesn't design iPhones here. It doesn't run AppleCare customer service from this city. And it doesn't manufacture MacBooks or iPads anywhere nearby. Yet, with a handful of employees in a small office here in Reno, Apple has done something central to its corporate strategy: it has avoided millions of dollars in taxes in California and 20 other states." Sure, this is all legal for companies to do (and Apple obviously isn't alone) but it does show you how much sense of morality companies have. Answer: none. But hey, it's legal, and the law is never wrong, right?

Fine, don't pay tax. While you're at it. Don't use the public roads. Blindfold yourself at night whenever you're near a street lamp. Tell the police to not help you if you're robbed. Dial 911 if you're injured? Forget that. You'll also need to stockpile on candles because electric power lines are government property.

It costs money to keep a country afloat. If you live in a country it's your responsibility to contribute your part to make it so.
