    That reminds me, have you all seen how little Google pays in tax?
    It isn't easy being apathetic, but someone has to do it, or it will never get done.

    Time spent doing nothing useful, is never wasted.

    If there were no witnesses, then it wasn't me!

    Yes, Cherry about Google. So did GE, FB and other companies in the US. Finance and Accounting Tax planning professionals will be the last ones to be let go if something happen to the company. Now you know why.

    Re: News I read today

    That is just nuisance making surely?

    Of course trump gave his accountant instruction to minimise tax returns. The guy was doing a good job, but, fundamentally, was doing as he was told.

    The CPA did a great job and Trump took all the credit for his "cleverness"!

    His accountant is the brightest and only smart person he has. You should see his lawyer and his doctor!

    We hope so Cherry, education must be our priority. We should educate our younger generation so that they can run the country effectively someday.

    A combination of money and fame can co-exist if the person is decent and charitable. Bill Gates comes to mind.

    Pull a Jen anytime, Heather! I was going to post The Scorpions on the Hurricane thread, but figured that I should wait for the storm to pass.

    Her hair is perfectly fine. Are they crazy? People have been wearing dreadlocks forever.

    Re: News I read today

    I do like the look of dreadlocks, but on some people they do look very unkempt, and depending on the job type could be of concern.

    However, this should be discussed at interview, not the first day starting.

    I like dreads. If you go into the Music thread, you'll see what I mean.

    Re: News I read today

    I think it depends on the job sometimes. If it's a laid back place, then it shouldn't matter at all. Professional places... I could see that not going over well.

    Her dreads look neat, though, so what's the big deal? And it is definitely weird they hired her just to fire her over it? She already had them!

    Maybe she did not wear dreads when she had the interview?
