  • Why Public Companies Should Have Public Tax Returns [View article]
    Corporations are required by law to submit audited financial statements. It's not a privacy issue.

    People have a constitutional right to privacy.
    Corporations don't.

    By that doctrine, nobody every owes any taxes, because somewhere up the line, somebody payed taxes.

    Like me, my customers purchase my products with their after-tax income, so by your logic, all of my income should be tax exempt.

    Sorry, but your logic is fatally flawed.

    Under the constitution, PEOPLE have civil rights, including the right to privacy.

    Corporations, on the other hand, are NOT people (regardless of Citizens United) and don't have civil rights.

    Corporations can, and are, forced every day to respond to subpoenas, answering questions to which a human could plead the fifth.

  • Thanks, Steve [View article]
    Yes, I remember well the first time I played with a Mac. It was spring of '84; I was a senior in High School, and my high school Computer Programming teach had taken a van load of us on a 2 hour field trip, to a computer expo at a nearby Univerisity.

    The Mac stol the show, of course. No one was interested in anything else.

    But I also remember a product Apple introduced about the same time, called "Lisa" - and it bombed.

    And I remember NeXT; and the early years in which PIXAR tried to be a hardware maker.

    So, all in all, Steve Jobs had some great ideas and some lousy ones. And mostly he'll be remembered for the great ones.

    Most people never have any ideas that good.
