regime to one's own advantage, to reduce the amount of tax that is payable by means that are within the law. By contrast, tax evasion is the general term for efforts to not pay taxes by illegal means. The term tax mitigation is a synonym for tax avoidance . Its original use was by tax advisors as an alternative to the pejorative term tax avoidance . Latterly the term has also been used in the tax regulations of some jurisdictions to distinguish tax avoidance foreseen by the legislators from tax avoidance which exploits loopholes in the law.

Arizona's dangerous precedent and the path forward on immigration ...
Last week, Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer signed a statewide law forcing local police officers to question and potentially detain anyone they "reasonably suspect" to be an undocumented immigrant. If you believe our local law enforcement agencies, who will be required to implement the mandates of this law, it will lead to mistrust between police and the people they have sworn to protect. The law violates due process, civil rights, and federal sovereignty over immigration policy. While I believe the courts will quickly overturn it, I am concerned that the damage to my home state's credibility has already been done. Arizona ... market research, surveys and trends
Arizona's Immigration Bill Already Seeing Praise and Opposition ...
one of the toughest in the nation, has everyone talking. Following news of its approval by the state’s House yesterday, civil rights groups began condemning the law; anti-immigration groups began applauding it; and enforcement officers have mixed opinions — and most of this has to do with the law’s effects on illegal immigrants and non-white communities alike. The Los Angeles Times reported last night: For years Arizona’s government has tried to deter unlawful immigration with a consistent approach — make life for illegal immigrants so uncomfortable and uncertain that they will leave, or never ... market research, surveys and trends

Ottawa takes aim at gun smugglers - Capital News Online
Canada's new anti-smuggling measures won't be enough to stop guns at the border, critics say.

The Conventional Military Balance in the Gulf
The Persian Gulf is currently in the midst of one of the largest arms races it has ever known. The chief motivation for it is Iran’s progress on its nuclear program and the possibility that Arab Gulf states will be in the line of fire in any future conflict. These states’ military forces have undergone substantive changes in recent years, mainly improvements in their defensive capabilities, and “on paper” they have acquired certain capabilities to attack Iran. Nevertheless, even massive procurement of weapon systems, no matter how advanced, is no match for Iran’s military power and its ability to ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

CNS - DC: Briefing Series
The threat of a bioterrorist attack opens up many difficult legal questions; the nature of the issue, itself, is set in a unique legal environment. Bioterrorism cross-permeates into the realms of public health, criminal law, national security, the environment and the rules of war, among others. And since it cannot be pigeon-holed neatly into any single category, there is a need, at the domestic level, for the effective coordination of resources, personnel, training and equipment among all relevant authorities at the federal, state and local levels. The problem is that the applicability of such resources and its entailing ...

Why is weed still illegal at all? | Ask MetaFilter
Will somebody please explain marijuana prohibition? What arguments are actually persuading the people who vote for it? Do any of them actually make sense? Are there special interests behind the initiatives to keep it illegal? There must be real, solid reasons you can't buy weed in CVS yet, but I can't even fathom what they are. The Justice Department seriously wants me to believe stuff like this: " Fact 1: We have made significant progress in fighting drug use and drug trafficking in America. Now is not the time to abandon our efforts. Fact 3: Illegal drugs are illegal because they are harmful. Fact 4: Smoked marijuana ...
