That something is the same tone in a higher octave, what's so hard to understand?
When you find another sound other than the ones on a keyboard, let me know (hint: it doesn't exist).
Obviously he's having a problem with the Definitions of tone and octave etc

I can't imagine why not. It's just a piece of metal.

The funniest (or maybe saddest) part of it is that they actually serve gefilte fish in airline meals.

Can't count that high. What do you expect from someone who can't even figure out your last name?
My thoughts exactly.

I think we're going around in circles :)

But yes, a company that does more for the local economy has more clout than the little guy. Always been that way and always will be. It's not about picking winners, it's about the company's impact.
But bottom line, at the end of the day, one company is getting boosted by the government and one isn't.


If tax breaks etc to businesses are good for the city they should be done across the board.  (tax cuts, not breaks for individuals.)
What's the cumulative impact to the local economy of all the little guys getting/not getting the breaks the big boys get?

Bottom line I'm saying it's not exactly free market when some companies are getting tax breaks but not others.

Amazon is obviously a very extreme example, I'm talking about the general idea of giving breaks to specific companies while having high rates for other companies.
If tax breaks etc to businesses are good for the city they should be done across the board.  (tax cuts, not breaks for individuals.)

If your company is important enough that there are hundreds of cities bidding for you to come, then you too can get tax incentives.
So until "my" company gets big enough "I" should be paying higher taxes than "them?"

that seems to be putting me at a disadvantage. That sounds kinda like promoting one company over another, like picking winners.

It's a free market.
Not if the government is subsidizing some companies and not others.

Not following
apparently neither am I, I think I misunderstood your analogy and now I have no idea what you were trying to say with it.

If other companies think they can create a bidding war to get incentives then let them.
Why is this any different than an employee shopping around for the best deal?
So you're saying it shouldn't be an even playing field, the government should be "picking winners," deciding which companies to promote?

When you pay 10% more for a bottle of milk that has 10% more milk vs a traditional bottle, did you pick/promote a winner?
If you take the extra 10% away from one dairy and give it to another to sell, then yes.
