He could teach people how to defeat them all he wants with no problem. The problem was he had people come to him and they told him they were going to being taking a government issued test and need to know how to lie about specific crimes they had committed.
At that point he is assisting in that person committing fraud.
It is the same for lock picking. You can teach it all you want. However if a person comes up to you and says I want to learn how to pick lock type X so I can break into my neighbors house, you are now in trouble if you teach them how to do so.

As a person living in Germany I love single payer/single provider.
I call up my doctor and dentist and make a reservation and am in with a few days and at a time I want, never fails.
Do feel sorry for the people who actually are having to use that horrid system of single payer/single provider because when I was depend on that I was waiting weeks and months for similar visits, but since I don't have to use it any more all is good.

Currently, I think, drillers don't even have to disclose what they pump into the ground.
That is a common false claim by the anti-science people. You can do a google search and find starting listings of chemicals and percentages for some states, other states don't require publicly listing but that they be filed with the states.
However mixture percentages changes all the time based on the rock formation also the water picks up chemicals in the rocks and that gets reused so you have the anti-science people complaining that they are using toxic chemicals in fracking when they are present because those chemicals are found in nature.

On one side you have Android and Google people who will complain that Google is not doing anything wrong and have the right to lobby that is the case and on the other side you have the people like the gyro-copter letter carrier who think companies have no such rights and just shut up and accept whatever government regulations get placed on them.

Item 1 is really wrong. There is a list of items and times at the federal level that cannot be used as a reason for firing you, also in the at will states I have worked at they also have rules on items that cannot be used for firing. In addition if you have items in your contract that prevent it they cannot fire you with no notice, also if you have an employee handbook which talk about firing those are considered as being a contract in most states.
