    Explain. Of course you'll come up with some convoluted theory which basically says that as long as they're supporting liberal ideology and such, but go ahead anyway.

    COMPANY NEWS; Georgia-Pacific Admits Tax Guilt
    Published: October 04, 1991
    The Georgia-Pacific Corporation pleaded guilty to tax evasion for trying to use a $2 million piece of Florida swampland as a $24 million tax deduction. The Atlanta-based paper and forestry products company may pay as much as $21 million in criminal and civil penalties, back taxes and interest stemming from its 1984 donation of the land to the State of Florida. Georgia-Pacific bought the 5,400 acres of swamp in 1981 for about $2 million, intending to use swamp peat as fuel for its mill at Palatka, Fla. When that plan was scrapped, the company gave the land to the state, saying on its 1984 tax return that the property was worth $24 million............

    GEORGIA PACIFIC CITED AND FINED $144,500 FOR SAFETY VIOLATIONS AT MONTICELLO, GA., PLANT

    The U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) today cited Georgia Pacific Inc. Panelboard Division of Monticello, Ga. The citations carry penalties totaling $144,500 for safety violations found during an inspection of the plant.

    According to Raymond Finney, OSHA's Atlanta-East area director, inspections began at the facility in response to a complaint about an explosion which injured one worker.

    The safety inspection revealed 13 serious violations with total proposed penalties of $44,500. Among the hazards cited were:

    the fire detection alarm was not working and the sprinkler system was not properly maintained;

    the boiler was not vented to the outdoors and its pressure relief valve was not vented from the work area;

    employees were exposed to live electrical parts;

    there was inadequate electrical grounding bond when dispensing flammable liquids;

    hazardous liquids were stored in the building in quantities greater than the maximum allowable 120 gallons;

    employees were exposed to unguarded horizontal shafts on the upper oven levels;

    electrical equipment was not properly maintained to protect against dust explosions and fire hazards;

    the path to ground was not permanent and continuous in several areas of the plant;

    open holes were not plugged in electrical cabinets and junction boxes, and

    employees were exposed to various electrical hazards.

    As Georgia-Pacific continues to fight environmental groups and the state Department of Environmental Protection over the waste that it dumps into Florida’s rivers and streams, the paper company may be headed for similarly-heated battles elsewhere.

    They've got more than that to look at. We could sit here for days pointing out wrongdoing on this side or that side. My first initial point was that even if Koch WAS pushing its employees to vote a certain way, it was in no way different than other organizations such as unions doing the same thing. You say unions are different. In this type of matter, I disagree...if you piss off the leaders of each, they can punish you.

    Liberalism Is The Philosophy Of The Stupid

    To Achieve Ordered Liberty You Must Have Moral Order As Well

    The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.
