Just keep moving that goalpost. You're the one who brought up Berkshire Hathaway.
Nope, you brought up George Soros's manipulation of a country's currency for profit and how this hurt folks. I pointed out that Bain Capital also played in financial markets and hurt folks. You then stated that Bain helpped more folks than they hurt, and I asked for the help/hurt track record of Berkshire, a company associated with George Soros, something you have failed to supply.

I also pointed out that it has been repeatedly stated that a business' prime responsibility is to make a profit for it's owners by any legal means.

At Koch Retreat, Top GOP Senate Candidates Credited Koch Network For Their Rise
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v =4_kMidwIT8AXX
WASHINGTON -- Three top Republican Senate candidates heaped praise on the political network built by the conservative billionaires Charles and David Koch during a secretive conference held by the brothers this past summer, according to audio of the event.
Iowa state Sen. Joni Ernst and Arkansas Rep. Tom Cotton directly credited donors present at the June 16 retreat in Dana Point, California, for propelling them forward. Colorado Rep. Cory Gardner told attendees that his race would likely be decided by the presence of "third party" money -- an obvious pitch for generosity from the well-heeled crowd.
The presence of Gardner and Cotton was previously reported by The Nation magazine, though it is unclear if Cotton ever confirmed his appearance. Ernst's attendance had not previously been reported.
For all three, the association with the Koch brothers' network is likely to provide kindling for their opponents, who have already argued that the Republicans are steered by deep-pocketed conservatives.
Audio of the event, held at the St. Regis Monarch Beach resort, was obtained by The Undercurrent and shared exclusively with The Huffington Post. In it, the three Republican candidates, appearing on a panel titled "The Senate: A Window of Policy Opportunity for Principled Leaders," speak for several minutes each about the state of their respective races. Because the discussion took place in mid-June, some of the comments are dated. In addition, some of the audio was redacted to preserve the anonymity of the individual who provided it -- "a source who was present at the event," per an official with The Undercurrent -- and to remove sections with too much cross-talk. A separate source, who helped organize the retreat, confirmed each candidate's participation.
During their speeches, both Cotton and Ernst noted that this was actually the second Koch brothers' retreat they had attended. Last year, the two had gone to the New Mexico event as politicians of less stature. The Koch network has since helped usher them to the doorsteps of the United States Senate.
"I was not known at that time," Ernst said. "A little-known state senator from a very rural part of Iowa, known through my National Guard service and some circles in Iowa. But the exposure to this group and to this network and the opportunity to meet so many of you, that really started my trajectory."
So? If the Koch brothers were progressives, you wouldn't say a word. You are a FRAUD.
You progressives "own" every media station, but one and you scream and cry. You progressives have big money pushing your agenda, but you don't have the Koch brothers and you scream and cry. Well, boo hoo.

House Republicans Are Trying To Make Money Laundering A Lot Easier
WASHINGTON -- House Republicans are agitating to dramatically curb federal bank regulators' ability to combat money laundering, calling for changes in decades-old financial fraud standards in an effort to aid payday lenders.
Moving illegal cash through the financial system has long been barred by money laundering laws. But under a bill introduced by Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer (R-Mo.), federal regulators would be forbidden from doing anything to "restrict or discourage" a bank from doing business with any company that has both a license to do business and a "reasoned legal opinion" from a lawyer claiming that the business doesn't break the law.
That's not a high hurdle to clear. Obtaining a business license and hiring a lawyer is a routine money laundering tactic for everyone from the mafia to terrorists to, more commonly, petty fraud scammers.
"It's completely whitewashing fraud," said Lauren Saunders, associate director of the National Consumer Law Center. "There are licensed companies that commit fraud all the time, and everybody's got lawyers who will try to justify what they're doing."
The GOP bill represents an escalation of the deregulatory fever that has gripped the party ever since President Barack Obama signed the 2010 Wall Street reform law. But the bill's proximate catalyst is a Department of Justice project combating consumer fraud called Operation Choke Point, which aims to cut off fraudsters from the banking system. The only public Choke Point action to date cracked down on North Carolina's Four Oaks Bank for processing payments on behalf of a host of undesirables: a Ponzi scheme that was busted by the Securities and Exchange Commission, online gambling agencies that settled with federal prosecutors and a horde of shady online payday lenders headquartered in places as far flung as Belize and Costa Rica.
Their complaints have also been amplified by small banks that don't want the increased scrutiny of their books. The Independent Community Bankers Association has been lobbying for Luetkemeyer's bill, and the American Bankers Association testified in favor of the bill as a benefit to the community banks.
The banks protest that DOJ's money laundering focus is holding them accountable for somebody else's misdeeds. But money laundering law has required banks to keep tabs on their clients since the 1970s and prohibits them from processing transactions in the service of fraud. Banks aren't liable for every single bogus transaction, but if they ignore a pattern of illegal activity, they can get in trouble with both DOJ and federal banking agencies. Wachovia (now Wells Fargo) was busted during the financial crisis, once for facilitating petty scammers and once for helping funnel billions of dollars in Mexican drug cartel money. HSBC got hit for laundering drug money in 2013.

John Boehner And House GOP Tax Guru Profited From Offshore Tax Dodge
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp (R-Mich.) personally profited from a corporate tax loophole that they have opposed closing, according to Bloomberg.
Boehner and Camp announced that they were selling their stock in Dublin-based Covidien shortly after the American medical technology company Medtronic agreed to acquire it. The merger would allow Medtronic to move its formal headquarters overseas to reduce its tax bill.
According to Bloomberg, Covidien’s stock price shot up after the acquisition was announced, and both Boehner and Camp sold between $15,000 and $50,000 shares of their stock in the company.
The transactions were legal and publicly disclosed, and both lawmakers denied that there was any conflict of interest between their personal finances and public policy positions. Yeah, SURE..

2008 Meltdown Was Worse Than Great Depression, Bernanke Says
Former Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke, a prominent student of the Great Depression, contends that the 2008 financial crisis was actually worse than its 1930s counterpart.
Mr. Bernanke is quoted making the statement in a document filed on Aug. 22 with the U.S. Court of Federal Claims as part of a lawsuit linked to the 2008 government bailout of insurance giant American International Group Inc.AIG +0.34%
“September and October of 2008 was the worst financial crisis in global history, including the Great Depression,” Mr. Bernanke is quoted as saying in the document filed with the court. Of the 13 “most important financial institutions in the United States, 12 were at risk of failure within a period of a week or two.”
Former Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner is quoted in the document offering a similarly apocalyptic assessment. From Sept. 6 through Sept. 22, the economy was essentially “in free fall,” he said.
Geithner and Bernanke were both concerned about publicly making these statements, as Republicans have no memory whatsoever of the last Republican President allowed into office in the United States having destroyed the US economy. "Those Neo-Cons are whacko" said Bernanke.

Let's see, the national interstate highway system was not CREATED by government, all the government did was put the work out for bid and facilitate payment. But yep, it was individuals who ACTUALLY built it.

Uhmmm, promote the general welfare, sure sounds like something that can be left up to interpretation.

How do We the People of those states that are down wind of coal burning power plants Promote Our General Welfare to protect ourselves from acid rain ?

Lying Republican Senator is willing to lie to appease his big-oil contributors. Scott Brown Denies That Man-Made Climate Change Is Scientifically Proven, after admitting it is real.
New Hampshire Senate candidate Scott Brown has added his name to the list of Republicans who have dismissed the science behind climate change, despite previously stating that global warming is real.
During a GOP primary debate on Saturday, Brown was asked if he believed that "the theory of man-made climate change has been scientifically proven." The former Massachusetts senator, who hopes to challenge Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.), responded, "Uh, no."
Watch Brown's answer in the video above.
Brown's response, posted in a video Monday by the Democratic opposition research firm American Bridge, is at odds with the position he held while defending his seat in the 2012 Massachusetts Senate race. Back then, Brown said he did believe in climate change during a debate with Sen. Elizabeth Warren, the Democrat who eventually defeated him.
"Yes, yes I do," he said. "I absolutely believe that climate change is real and I believe there's a combination between man-made and natural."
When asked for comment Monday, Brown's campaign offered a response that more closely resembled his remarks in 2012.
"Scott Brown believes that the climate is changing by a combination of natural and manmade causes," Elizabeth Guyton, a spokeswoman for the campaign, told The Huffington Post. "The real issue is whether we are going to impose a new national energy tax on carbon. Scott Brown says no and Jeanne Shaheen says yes."
Though Brown is expected to win the primary on Sept. 9, he has adopted a more conservative stance on some issues to garner support from the right. He has recently pounded Shaheen's record on immigration, despite voting, while serving as a state senator in Massachusetts, for one of the same reforms he criticized her for backing.
Shaheen hit Brown for his comments on climate change, calling them "disappointing" and an effort to "appease the Big Oil special interests who fund his campaigns."
There's your Republican candidates for you! Not acting in what they KNOW are the best interests of the American people in order to appease big-oil and big-coal.
Perhaps you should call Al Gore, liar. He certainly doesn't live what he received a Nobel Prize for. Progressives are liars and frauds.

"JOB CREATORS AT WORK"
Democrats Want Scott Brown To Resign From A Company That Outsources Jobs
WASHINGTON -- The re-election campaign of Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.) and a trio of labor groups are calling on GOP Senate candidate Scott Brown to resign from a company that outsourced U.S. jobs.
Shaheen said Monday that she supports a letter signed by the New Hampshire chapters of three Democratic-leaning labor groups: SEIU Local 1984, the AFL-CIO and the Teamsters, seeking Brown's resignation from the board of directors of Kadant, Inc. The move is the latest effort by Democrats in the Granite State to highlight Brown's role at the Massachusetts-based company, which has outsourced jobs to China and Mexico to capitalize on cheap labor, according to a recent report in the Nashua Telegraph.
The paper reported last week that Brown has earned $270,000 from Kadant, an equipment supplier for the pulp and paper industry, since joining the company in February 2013. Kadant has 14 manufacturing facilities total, four of which are based in the United States. The rest of the its manufacturing operations are located in countries that include China, Mexico, Brazil, France, the Netherlands and Sweden.
"Scott Brown has to answer to the people of New Hampshire who deserve to know why he was collecting hundreds of thousands of dollars from a company that shipped American jobs overseas and that relies on low-cost manufacturing bases in China and Mexico," Mike Vlacich, Shaheen's campaign manager, said Monday. "New Hampshire can’t afford a U.S. Senator like Scott Brown who cares more about lining his own pockets -- even if it means taking jobs from U.S. workers.
That's Republicans for you. Destroying our country.

And another hyperbolic rant from the Left. I don't know any conservatives who argue against the government filling those roles it was INTENDED to, things like providing for national defense; protecting citizens' constitutional rights; establishing federal courts, the postal service, and raising revenue to perform the ESSENTIAL functions laid out in the Constitution. And flowing from those functions is the environment that allows citizens to "pursue happiness". Meaning they can work to educate themselves, get a job, maybe create a business and employ others, etc. But it is NOT the government that comes up with the ideas and takes the risks and maybe stumbles and falls and maybe/maybe not rises again to TRY again and MAYBE this time succeed. The government CREATES NOTHING on its own. But it is the INDIVIDUAL that is the strength of this country - NOT THE GOVERNMENT.
Just like Obama, you see the Constitution as a "charter of negative liberties", only seeing it as something that "says what the states can't do to you" and "what the federal government can't do to you" and you refuse to see that that view is turning the Constitution's intent on its head. The point of the Constitution is to protect the rights of the INDIVIDUAL, not the government.
United States Government - perform those functions you were intended to do -"establish Justice, ensure Domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare" and then get out of the way and let the American entrepreneurial spirit loose. That is what made this country the powerhouse it has been - NOT the government trying to micromanage our lives and insert itself into every aspect of our lives. And consequently demanding higher and higher taxes to perform functions it was NEVER intended to perform in the first place.
I see you've been enjoying Herman Cain again. He's good entertainment. It has NOTHING to do with the real world, but pretty exciting for fiction-based storytelling.
