6) Apples turns around and buys company with a discount for the debt owed.

Why you ask? The stock at at 10 before today and 20 not that long ago. At 10, the company is 1.43 Billion dollars. So they get the whole thing for 600 million. If they had try to outright buy them, it could have easily cost 2 Billion dollars.

Lucky I don't work for Apple, because that is what I would have done and that would truly be Evil.

Considering they were offering test drives, I fail to see where they are selling a retail motor vehicle, at least at this point in time.

The question, from the above code that a manufacturer or importer cannot be licensed as a vehicle dealer is discriminatory and whether that is beneficial to the public. Depending on the judge and interpretation of the law, if no public good can be established it can be a reason to overturn a law.

Warren Buffet, a government employee and/or consultant? Please

Warren Buffet has probably one of the few people who has always gotten the best of Goldman Sach's because whenever they really fuck things over, he squeezed them for top of the line deals. Pretty much what Goldman Sach's did to anyone else given half the chance.

We tax whatever we want to tax, there is no magic line that we cannot cross if we don't want too. We can AND DO tax wealth all the time. It is called property taxes. We also have DEATH taxes, or in reality an inheritance tax. To discourage excessive wealth accumulation.

I was going to down vote you but I thought better to reply.

It has been proven time and again that a person on the low end of the scale will spend a greater portion of their salary on day to day purchases than a rich person.

Do you really think if you gave a man like Larry Elison $1000 or $1M or $10M that he is going to run around like a kid in a candy store and spend it on daily needs? Most likely he WILL stick it under his mattress or something similar because at a certain point you don't need more.

I don't even believe that you have to use Bogus applications, I think you can resubmit rejected applications with slight alterations. Then you can compare the original submission results with the new submission results and see the differences. If someone is not doing the work, it should be obvious based upon the underlying research for acceptance or rejection.

I was renting my house out and had someone managing the property. Part of the property management agreement is filling out a form so that bills are sent to Property Manager when it is unoccupied. Instead the electric company sent bills to the house after my renters moved out. After 3 months they forwarded it to a collections agency.

The property manager cut the collections agency a check, but I kept getting collection notices. Eventually it came down to the collection agency putting the check against the wrong account. After the admitted the mistake they STILL sent me collection notices. I had to send them a formal letter threatening them with a lawsuit to get it fixed. They never responded back to me but they quietly fixed the issue. It took over 6 months to get it straight.

These are not simply billing issues, but accounting issues and the only person who seems accountability to anyone is the debtor; and they have to figure who F**K these people are and if they are doing their job.

My idea of roughing it turning the air conditioner too low.
