EsquireCats said:Yeah I'm sure a random 3rd party test shop would pick up something that every other RF certification process worldwide would have missed. /sWell, that might be the only reason why they published it! The fact that the measurements were/could have been done very sloppy or incorrectly, matters not. An average reader will grab the article title and run with it.

It’s amazing that those decrying socialism the loudest are the same people enthusiastically dishing out handouts to corporations.Let me clarify it:HANDOUT - is when you do not own the money, that someone else generated, yet you ended up getting the money (for some obscure reason), despite having NO connection to the chain of a producer <----> a consumer .TAX CUT - is when you actually made those money as a person/company by generating value, and then the gov-t allows you to KEEP MORE of your earned money, by taxing your income to a lesser extent.Do you understand the difference?
The people decrying socialism are mad about what they perceive to be handouts, whether it's tax breaks or other subsidies. This isn't any different, except it's being applied to a fucking profitable international mega-corporation that absolutely 100% does not need these subsidies, whereas we have people in our country working full time and struggling to stay above water. Foxconn should pay every cent for what they need to set up shop in that state. It's bullshit.
That is what my (i quote) “fucking point” is.
Another mistake economically illiterate, like you, often make is thinking that by taxing a corporation, you are taxing that corporation. In reality, that tax ALWAYS gets passed along to the consumer. Corporations themselves always shift the tax burden to the end of the chain - a consumer and they rarely care what the real tax burden is, as long as everyone else has to pay it. So, of course the irony here, is that you scream that companies need to be taxed more, while in reality what you are advocating is that you and other fools will be the ones picking up the tab for that “fair corporate tax”.
IQ curve is a bitch when your are in the middle of the curve, or to the left of the median/mode, I suppose...
Taxes don't always get passed along to consumers. A competitive market helps with that.
In fact, if you decide to be a “responsible” business and not pass the tax along, you will have less money to be competitive comparing to another business which decided not to be such a fool. This puts YOUR business at the disadvantage by making you less competitive (less cash for operations and growth).
