Apple on the skewer

by Walter Olson on May 27, 2013

“Apple doesn’t have a political action committee to fund incumbents’ re-elections. Apple doesn’t hire many congressional staff or any former congressmen as lobbyists. Apple mostly minds its own business — and how does that help the political class?” [Tim Carney, Washington Examiner]

What, Apple thought they could do business in this neighborhood without paying a visit? Such disrespect.

The difference between the mafia and the US government is the US government has killed way more people.

Nice company you’ve got there. Be a shame if anything happened to it. For anybody else it would be extortion, but, not Government.

NL7 – you forgot that the mafia doesn’t claim a need to shoot the dog.

Apple must be disappointed since they just named the former head of EPA, Lisa Jackson to their board or maybe they saw it coming and named her.
