S&H is absolutely taxable in New Jersey, if the shipment contains taxable goods.
This really is too bad. Not that the Earth is going to die, but that humanity does not possess the necessary skills in cooperation and teamwork to move our collective asses somewhere else before it happens.
This guy ought to be ashamed of himself. IMHO he does not represent the character, integrity, or mission of Georgia Tech, it's students, alumni, faculty, staff, or administration.
There are right ways and wrong ways to do things, and this most certainly was the wrong way.
No CEO should get cash compensation. They should be paid exclusively in stock options. Why? Because they will only make any money if they make the company a success and the stock price goes up. If the stock price goes down, their options are worthless unless and until the price recovers.
Paying CEOs only in stock options would guarantee that they didn't make a dime if the company performed poorly. A 1 year holding period after exercise would prevent them pumping up a quarter artificially just to dump it and quit.
Too much liability exposure having people come to the house, and even more in giving away food. God forbid little Johnny's mom is convinced he has a gluten or peanut allergy and decides to sue me to satisfy her Munchhausen's Proxy Syndrome when he gets nauseated after eating a mini Mr. Goodbar (not that eating 5lbs of candy in one night had anything to do with it).
Sandy did not change my view of disasters. I still remain prepared for disaster, and when stuff looks like it is going to happen, I use my brain instead of burying my head in the sand and thinking things like "oh it won't happen to me" or "oh well Government will be there to save me," which is exactly what happened in New York.
The entire city lived in a state of denial leading up to Sandy, and continued to live in that state for a week afterward, even having the nerve to attempt to hold the NYC marathon despite there being people in need of the resources that were being used for it. Marathon organizers had generators, clean water, gasoline, and everything they wanted, while thousands of people all over the city had no power, no water, and no means of transportation out of the city.
Mayor Bloomberg is a disgrace.
You'll never stop the anti-Semitic Ron Paul dick-sucking brigades from blaming everything on Israel.
Subject says it all. Our government does not currently possess the capability of putting a man in space, let alone putting a man on the moon.
Private industry is close to making space travel routine, but government just can't do it, because it is too focused on other things, and tends to pollute science missions with political bias.
"Let's put a man on the moon! No wait, should it be a man, or a woman? Should it be someone who is best suited for it, or someone who is politically connected? What color should their skin be? Should the vehicle be built by the best capable company, or should we focus more on the diversity makeup of the company's employees, and whether the company is owned by a minority person?" etc etc...
Government is paralyzed by the Political Correctness movement.
The gent who wakes up and finds himself a success hasn't been asleep.
