    New Jerseyĺs largest city plans to test whether universal basic income is feasible, making it the latest government to flirt with a program that would guarantee income for residents whether or not they have a job.

    Newark Mayor Ras Baraka announced his decision last week to create a task force and pilot program to study whether the program is possible.

    ôWe believe in Universal Basic Income, especially in a time where studies have shown that families that have a crisis of just $400 a month may experience a setback that may be difficult, even impossible to recover from,ö Baraka reportedly said, adding that one-third of the city still lives in poverty.

    According to Fox 5 New York, Baraka did not release any further details of the plan, like how it could be funded or when a final decision would be made.

Everyone loves amazon,  because for the vast majority of purchases, sales taxes aren't collected

I don't know if that's the case anymore, though it may be dependent of your state of residence. These days, the majority of my Amazon purchases do have sales tax added to them. In many states YOU are supposed to keep track of your Internet purchases and report them to pay sales tax. Most people don't do that though, which is why many states are pushing the reporting burden to vendors.

Amazon was just an example of companies "getting away" with not paying tax.

I guess that means the threaded barrel isn't going to be back in stock on their website.  Glad I picked up a few more magazines last month.  

Sad to see.  I like my pistol.  Feels real good in the hand, great trigger, and smooth shooter.  I never had any problems.  Sounds like some did.  Might have to see what prices do on the pistols still for sale.

Hudson Manufacturing, makers of the much-vaunted Hudson H9, filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy on March 14th. This is, presumably, in direct response to their previously cataloged troubles. Cambridge Valley Machining has sued Hudson over unpaid debts after being contracted to machine parts for them.
Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

There are several different types, or chapters, of bankruptcies that individuals and companies can file for. Hudson has filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, meaning that they have chosen to liquidate all their assets to absolve their debts.

There are some interesting titbits in Hudsonĺs filing. First, their estimated assets are less than $50,000 USD. However, their liabilities are somewhere between $10 million and $50 million dollars. In fact, according to the filings, Cambridge Valley Machining might not even be their largest creditor. While estimates of how much Hudson owes Cambridge Valley vary, the value is certainly more than $500,000, and probably under $1 million. That leaves at least $9 million in debt unaccounted for, and possibly as much as $49 million. Their list of creditors spans 18 pages.

I got this one from Amazon back in 2013.

It holds my heaviest knives and my small clever without any issues at all.

No clue if it will hold magazines or the like, but I can't see why it wouldn't, at least to some degree.
