    If you’re going to take funding from the Govnerment you have to follow their guidelines. If you’re not going to follow their guidelines, don’t take their funding. You can’t take their funding and then throw a fit when they expect you to follow certain standards. If I’m investing in a business and giving you funds to develop the business per your business plan as shown to me, I expect that you’re going to follow the business plan. If you’re going to deviate from the business plan then you can expect that I will withdraw my investment. A solution would be… Read more »

    You’re wrong on so many levels and it’s sad how people from our own community are so unaware of how horrible this Gezeira is. Just a few points: 1) This is not about taking money.
