It's the height of irony to blame the loss of decent jobs on unions.

Look up the definition of a standard corporation and you'll find nowhere in their charter is to create jobs or make the world a better place. All corporations care about is creating value for their shareholders. If they can outsource, replace employees with robots, poison the air and water (and get away with it) they absolutely will.

Unions are one of the few ways workers can protect themselves from the predatory nature built into every corporation.

Anti-spyware and anti-malware is not necessary if you follow a few simple guidelines: don't click on anything suspicious, don't use html e-mail, don't use internet explorer, install a whitelist plugin like NoScript into your browser.

I haven't run av software in ten years and never had a problem.

If someone wants to convert more than 250,000 rupees — roughly $3,650 — they’re required by law to provide an explanation for why they have so much cash and prove that they’ve paid tax on it. If they don’t, they’re expected to pay a fine of 200 percent of the tax they owe.

Sounds like a horrible thing.
