Since when has a developer (or most business) paid any taxes that they did not pass on, as much as the market could bear, to the person at the end of the line? Just like the NY big banker's payback of the TARP funds. They got the payback from charging their customers more (consider it a tax on the customer). Or, from barrowing money from the Government at almost zero percent rate and then buying higher interest treasury notes while still paying higher bonuses to the top people. What a money making scheme – really just a wealth transfer machine! The taxpayers get hit to pay the interest back to the scheming banks. The greedy always finds a way to complain they are paying a tax (or want taxes reduced – the TEA Party leaders) which they never really pay out of there pockets anyway.

I went to school with Forrest, but for those of you who didn't and want an idea of what kind of fellow he is, take a gander at his facebook page.

Ummm...

The only Forrest Mozart on Facebook is a private site, and it's just a picture of a giuy next to a VW bus. Not very interesting.

Anybody know why they didn't sue Mountain View?
