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?

You wrongfully assume you have to threaten to kill everybody to get that paid for (taxation). I think it's better to ask nicely and allow choices. ;)

Name me the exact phrase I used where I threatened to kill for tax. Otherwise, stop using straw man arguments.

Let me get this straight, in the first two posts, we were arguing about the importance of paying taxes.

In the third post you wrongly accused me of threatening people to pay taxes.

In the fourth post I basically said "Citation Needed", asking for where I threatened people.

Now, not only have you failed to provide the necessary proof that I threatened people, you make a baseless statement that tax dodgers are killed at gun point and try to pass this off as fact.

Please, stop posting now. Learn more about the world - and about debating - and come back once you're done.
