    A story from yesterday: https://www.huffingtonpost.com/bruce-kushnick/the-book-of-broken-promis_b_5839394.html

    I know that my own ISP, Verizon, has been guilty of this, taking millions in tax breaks from our state and local governments, making their existing customers pay fees and surcharges to implement this plan, and then failing on their promises to install fiber optic cable in large areas of N.Y.C. and the surrounding suburbs. Time for a class action lawsuit.

    @Joe C - Thanks for pointing that out. It looks like Investment Watch doesn't allow external links to their stories by non-subscribers. I corrected it by linking to their source. ;)

    One of the essential things that stands between us and barbarity is - taxes!!!

    Not wanting to pay one's taxes is getting closer and closer to "asking for it"...
