I'm not saying tax system is fair, but there is much more to using the system wisely than your post would indicate.
There are two sides here. The "laid off" worker is still a human being, and it may be that he will have a better career and life ahead than those left behind. To be treated with total lack of dignity at such a moment leaves an indelible impression; I know because it happened to me once.
So, what I am saying is that karma is a bitch, to treat those you are letting go badly will come back on those who perpetrate it.
[bows down] mighty post, sir.
I see this in car forums a lot; the troll will post up seemingly naive but insidiously wrong posts, usually with a username and pic of a woman. The old guys in the forum hit that bait like a large mouth bass.
1. An ounce is that name used for english units of both weight and volume, but they are not the same. I think your second sentence has them confused. (So much better to use metric for these discussions!)
2. The developer claims that one ounce of (typical) booze and one ounce of his stuff contain the same amount of alcohol. This infers that he meant the volume unit of ounce, and that his stuff is about 35% ethanol, which would be the case for typical vodka for example. The balance in vodka is water, the balance in his stuff is some kind of sorbent.
3. Even though I agree the weight savings and concentration of alcohol discussion about this powdered stuff is mostly confusion, his basic point I think is that powder is easier to pack and carry and less likely to spill than a liquid form of alcohol (I don't necessarily agree with him, just trying to provide some clarity.)
If the legislature of those states who are alarmed just did a little homework, they would realize that this is much ado about nothing.
