* Bain in 1988 put $5 million down to buy Stage Stores, and in the mid-'90s took it public, collecting $100 million from stock offerings. Stage filed for bankruptcy in 2000.

* Bain in 1992 bought American Pad & Paper (AMPAD), investing $5 million, and collected $100 million from dividends. The business filed for bankruptcy in 2000.

* Bain in 1993 invested $60 million when buying GS Industries, and received $65 million from dividends. GS filed for bankruptcy in 2001.

* Bain in 1997 invested $46 million when buying Details, and made $93 million from stock offerings. The company filed for bankruptcy in 2003.

Romney's Bain invested 22 percent of the money it raised from 1987-95 in these five businesses, making a $578 million profit.

While I have not investigated all of Romney's Bain investments and there may be cases where he made money and improved businesses, there's little question he made a fortune from businesses he helped destroy.

Mitt Romney, through his spokesman, did not return calls. Bain declined comment.

Bain of his existence

Romney said:

He was not involved in decisions to take distributions from two Bain Capital businesses that later failed. New York Times, June 3, 2007

“People in America want to know who can get 15 million people back to work.”

Romney did:

Owned a controlling interest in Bain Capital when it took payments from five companies that later failed.

Made fortunes by bankrupting five profitable businesses that ended up firing thousands of workers.

You want him to give all of his money to the American public or to children working in a Chinese factory????? Bill Gates is wealthy. Donald Trump is wealthy. More power to them. Why would you care?????

So what about all the companies which were successful? You can't win on all of them!!!! Think of the thousands of employees who work for these companies!!!!

Staples

Bain and Romney saw a $13 million return on their $2 million investment and last year saw Staples bring in $24.5 billion in sales and employ roughly 90,000 people worldwide.

Sports Authority

Sports Authority grew to more than 460 stores in 45 states and a number of licensed stores in Japan.

Brookstone

Today, Brookstone still has 300 stores but relies on that same multipronged approach of Web and catalog service to not only stay afloat but to boost sales 8.8% and push same-store sales 6.7% last year.

Sealy

The company redesigned its core mattress, focused on the high end and watched earnings jump to $168 million from $112 million in three years.

Dominos Pizza

Domino's had only one owner before Romney and Bain bought 93% of the company in 1998.

That is how it works buddy!!! Same with all companies!!!! It is how people become successful!

You have an idea. You build a company and put all of your time, effort and money into it. Those people make more than the clerk checking out a customer at Staples or the delivery boy for Dominoes.

Let's say you come up with a great product to sell to the public. You spend a great amount of money and time perfecting your product. You want to open a business to sell the product. You borrow tons of money to get it started. You hire an attorney and complete all the legal requirements for starting your company. You rent a building, buy the furnishings, pay for all the items you need to make the product. It takes you years to get to this point. You open your new business and hire people to make the product and people to sell it. You are responsible for everything related to your business, including the janitor and CPA.

Who will receive the largest percentage of your profits? You or the people you have hired to work for you?

Why is this difficult to understand??????????

What the....? Again, I ask all of you to think hard about this: Who needs all that money? And what kind of person pirates failing companies, promising to help them, then steals their assets,,,,then the firms go belly up? This is not a moral, ethical person! Who puts a sick dog with the Hershey Squirts on the top of his damn car for a long, long vacation? The guy's a robot, a middlin' minded creep. Plus he belongs to that weird cult that killed all the Native Americans in Utah. To hell with him.(BTW, if you think that I am the idiot, I am a CPA, an MBA in Finance and make a lot of money. Not more than I need. And I pay all my darned taxes. Too bad I can't grow marijuana in Kentucky, like you boys, and not pay ANY taxes...Party on!)

Here's some info for you, Mr. Amused: Do you know that having an angry, hostile personality will take many years off of your lifespan? Honestly. Your body just cannot handle that sort of stress caused by being angry and nasty all the time. So beware--I predict you'll croak over in your mush in just a few days. You should probably find a monastery and learn how to become a nice person. Or maybe get a girlfriend who could also do that. You're headed for the grave, for sure.
