If Hillary wants more money from Wall Street, Warren is out as VP pick. Makes more sense to go with a gay high profile, head of the world's largest company in the world. Continue with the "political correctness" approach. Momentum works. Attack Trump, anti gun movement,celebrate alternative life styles, open boarders, redistribution of wealth, higher taxes for the rich, free college, increase the earned income tax credits, Obama Care for illegals, etc. Cook could help with building bridges with China, Iran and other enemies of the USA.
Go Hillary... Go Cook.... Please!
Tim Cook fervently wants investors who care more about return on investments than reducing CO2 emissions to no longer invest in Apple. Now it appears that Mr. Cook is indirectly saying the same thing to members of the Republican party. Apple claims that it is entitled to First Amendement protections "compelled speech" if forced to write software to hack an iPhone for the FBI. Careful Mr. Cook. Shareholders own this company and many will search for ways to protect our rights as investors. Shareholders will soon demand a decent return on our investment without alienating and dividing us.
Men aged 65 and older spent more on Apple devices than any other demographic group in the United States last year, according to Slice Intelligence, which tracks online shopping data. (10-29-2015) Perhaps Mr. Cook doesn't care that a large percentage of this demographic are republicans and supporters of Mr. Trump.
Mr. Cook Fiduciary duty is to act in good faith with regard to the interests of Apples' shareholders.
Mr. Cook reminds me of the gap toothed mascot Alfred E. Neuman. "What, me worry"."If most people said what's on there mind they'd be speechless . "The world is a place that has gone from being flat to round to crooked." "America is a land which fought for freedom and then began passing laws to get rid of it" Amen
Mr. Cook is wanting to sell its products to Iran who's leaders declared war with the "Great Satan (USA) since the establishment of the Islamic Republic in 1979. Cook also sells iPhones in Muslim countries like Saudi Arabia known to execute homosexuals and treat woman like slaves. Does Mr. Cook understand that not all shareholders share his political views.? In the event that our US legislators declares war on DASH is Mr.Cook knowledgeable about US history and the Alien and Sedition acts? Is he aware that denying a government request such as unlocking an iPhone would be considered treasonous? Careful what you want Mr. Cook. America is watching you. Boycotts work both ways. Mr. Trump has already suggested boycotting Apple if the company refused to assist our government . It's not a stretch to think that Republicans could also be willing to boycott Apple if they believed they were not being treated fairly.
Your silence implies, "watch and learn", that the board is too ignorant to understand your thought on why you missed out on this rally.
Neither country sent their head of state to greet Obama upon his arrival. Obama bows to the king of Saudi Arabia, apologizes to the world for "Americans transgressions" and has divided our country more then at any time since our Civil War. On the positive side Obama made it possible for Trump to become our next president.
