Ol' Bill needs to stop blaming Americans for the need for energy - China is now the number one consumer of energy in the world.

Suck on that, commie libs!

You are right. I am sure that a for-profit enterprise that makes it's money extracting something from under the ground is doing so with our best interests at heart.
They tout how safe they are, etc. as if they are doing something noble of their own accord.
They truth is that they are doing what they do, meeting the absolute minimum standards set by the law (and those laws were made by the same people getting kickbacks FROM this industry - no conflict of interest there, right?) and doing so as CHEAPLY as possible.
But to listen to the ads, they act as if they are doing MORE than legally necessary and spending as whatever it costs to do so. Bullshit of the highest order. And the they parade these paid-off shills to tout their benevolence. Hey, give me a million bucks...I'll lie on tv for you too.

You're kidding, right?

How else do you explain corporate profits that continue to gain while the middle class continues to grow more destitute and wages never increase? You and me are a means to an end. If they could, they'd eliminate human beings in their work force altogether.

Sure, some companies care about their employees, but those are super rare creatures. The odd thing is that those companies are often very successful and consistently make good profits, which proves that the business model held by the majority of corporations is simply bad.

Maybe the good people here in the Lebanon Valley should pick at their own nose first. Before they bad mouth the people up state for polluting, maybe they should remember who is polluting the Chesapeake bay for the last 200 years.

Yet most jobs are created not by bug corporate entities but by small businesses. And small businesses are the backbone of the country. By attacking all business, you are lumping in all of the good ones with some bad apples - like Obama's pals at General Electric.

Good for you, but I wasn't speaking about myself.
I was speaking on behalf of the millions of other Americans out there who don't have the opportunities that you seem to think are just there for the taking. How did you pay for that education? How did you get the time to get that education. It's also nice that you have the capacity to be lucky enough to be able to be educated. Who watches your kids while you go to school? Who pays for that? Etc. etc. etc.

You know it it real easy to look down your nose at people when you think you are all that.
Your reply reeks of pompous arrogance and an assumption that people who are struggling are doing so because they are lazy and/or stupid. That's the kind of attitude that is damaging this nation. Not everyone has access to things you seem to take for granted.

Come on. You know what I am talking about. Small business is not the issue. They don't have leverage in Washington. Focus Morbius. Think about it.

So, who has all of the leverage in Washington? Seems to me they are all kiss ups to Obama - General Electric being the most offensive of the bunch.

If you are going to criticize corporations, why not start naming names? GE is the lowest fruit on the tree.

I give up. There is no talking to you. You act as if Obama is the only president or politician to ever coddle a corporation for whatever reason. Open your eyes a little and read something other than whatever propagandist crap you read, and maybe you'll understand the problem better. I don't have all day to list the multitude of business that feed this corruption. You do your own homework.

People make their own lot in life. Their lives are the sum of the choices that they make. You ask IMHO how they got the time to get an education. The question is good, but you sarcastic innuendo was that they are somehow privileged to have more hours in the day or days in the week than someone else.
You say we look down our noses at people and rail on IMHO and others who post on Topix as being pompous and arrogant when they say that the road to prosperity, the same road that they have traveled, is hard work and wise choices. You seem to be a champion for those less fortunate, although most of the time I think it’s your hatred for those who have more than others more than your compassion for those less fortunate that ignite your responses. But t I’ll assume that you care and ask you this. What exactly have you actually done to help the people that you view as downtrodden? You say that you are not one who is less fortunate, so do you open your door to those who are and give them shelter? Do you give them your money, your time, your food? Do you share with them the things that you learned that brought you prosperity? Do you do anything other than sit at your computer and condemn those who have succeeded?

No, but Obama is the first politician to be so flagrant about it. And GE is doing nothing about hiding their politically-driven relationship with BHO.

I always hear liberal b!tchin' about corporate greed and politicians as if Republicans and conservatives are to blame - yet the real data shows that the bailout kings on Wall Street were primarily Obama supporters.

Wanna throw rock? I have no problem with that. But be fair and throw them at all of the crooks, not just the ones you dislike politically.
