"Cowardice asks the question...is it safe? Expediency asks the question...is it politic? Vanity asks the question...is it popular? But conscience asks the question...is it right? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular but one must take it because it is right." ~Dr. Martin Luther King

The Bad Old Days

I'm not use if you are referring to the employee of which I m thinking. But one of them had to get a lawyer & fight very hard to get the money to which he was entitled. Hope he is still out there as a character witness.

I published the original comment  without thinking much about it.  It was a long time ago. Long enough that no person's right to privacy could be affected.

But it struck me ,when I received the above, since I knew nothing of it,I have no way  of  confirming the truth of it. I'm not saying there is none. Just that I don't know it.

So we  will say no more about it.

The  point being  made was funds disbursed  in severance  packages as a frequent event and no longer, should ,with  other factors mentioned  contribute to a reduced tax burden.

 It was an awful. awful time.

And  its not happening now, Thank God!

Ireland is having a problem. People did ' not understand ' the wording of their referendum. Looks very close.
