A large portion of business owners and CEOS are clueless when it comes to realizing the value of its employees and treating them with the respect and dignity that they deserve.
A company that opens its business in a town that employs most of that towns population does have a responsibility for the good of society.

So tell me, why did Obama continue to lie about what happened even after he knew that it was a terrorist attack that killed those 4 people?
cause he wanted voters to think he defeated al qaeda, which is not true. all gains made by Bush are quickly unraveling under Obama's lack of leadership and pandering---but, but, but my middle name is Hussein. he's like Sally Fields at the Academy Awards gushing: "they like me, they really like me..."

Look, folks, the problem with romanticizing anything is that by the very act of romanticizing it you remove it from the realm of humanity. You take Jesus, for instance. Here's the one thing the Jewish community hates more than pork: a Jew who's out there swingin' his dick around saying "Look at Me! Look at Me!" Most Jews know that as soon as you go around calling attention to yourself the Gentiles are going to come running over and take all your stuff. The same is true for soldiers, sailors, Marines, etc.. You start calling them all heroes well sooner of later somebody is going to blurt out that it was Cletus Fernager who shot Pat Tillman's head off or that Chris Stephens was a gay CIA agent in charge of a dirty little outpost in Libya designed to help (or hinder) Israel in their latest upcoming extravaganza. You see? Chris was Station Chief in Jerusalem for years and he's the agency head of the Iran desk. You romantic clowns push a little harder and you're going to make it impossible for Israel to attack Iran. Ha ha ha ha, the law of unintended and unromantic consequences.

"September 20 -- President Obama at a town hall meeting organized by the Spanish-language Univsion Network, responding to a question about the possible involvement of al Qaeda:

"What we do know is that the natural protests that arose because of the outrage over the video were used as an excuse by extremists to see if they can also directly harm U.S. interests."

Many small business owners do not even take a salary in order to keep their businesses afloat and keep their employees on the payroll. They reinvest their profits back into their own companies and sacrifice their own profits. During the Eisenhower days when the tax rate was 91%, corporations chose to reinvest in their companies rather than pay out millions to ceos salaries. Health insurance benefits was a tool used to lure the best employees to work for them.
A responsible ceo would forfeit his multi million dollar salary to save his company; this still does happen on occasion. Jay Leno did this to save employees on the Tonight Show.
Health insurance was used because there was a wage freeze. Learn something. It was also one of the biggest mistakes ever done. Tying insurance to employment was reinventing the company store.

Gordon Gekko: The richest one percent of this country owns half our country's wealth, five trillion dollars. One third of that comes from hard work, two thirds comes from inheritance, interest on interest accumulating to widows and idiot sons and what I do, stock and real estate speculation. It's bullshit. You got ninety percent of the American public out there with little or no net worth. I create nothing. I own. We make the rules, pal. The news, war, peace, famine, upheaval, the price per paper clip. We pick that rabbit out of the hat while everybody sits out there wondering how the hell we did it. Now you're not naive enough to think we're living in a democracy, are you buddy? It's the free market. And you're a part of it. You've got that killer instinct. Stick around pal, I've still got a lot to teach you.

They are free to do business.
Not shop for ever price increasing insurance or figure out who to drop! <------ THAT IS THE REPUBLICAN WAY.
