<quoted text>No worker ever decided to move the over 30,000 American factories that have closed to China. It was the millionaire and billionaire CEOs that made that call. Ever since Reagan came up with the Piss Down Economics the CEO average pay has gone from 23 times that of the worker to almost 400 times more today.
Of the over 21 million Corporations in the US only 6 million of them have any employees. Most are just setup as a tax haven. Of all the small businesses in the US only 11% of the owners make over $250K per year. It is the rich bankers, Wall St. hedge fund gamblers, and the top CEOs that destroyed America.
How much does the Evil CEO of, let's say, General Mills make? A million? A couple of million?

How much does Dirkowitz of the Dallas Mavericks make?

The Evil CEO is hired by the board of directors of the Evil Corporation to perform a very demanding function. You probably don't have a clue what a CEO does, but it's more than you think.

The pay for the CEO is determined by the board as well. They decide how much the guy is worth, i. e. how much money he will make the corporation. If he fails to make the corporation a lot of money, he gets fired.

Dirkowitz performs a specific function and is paid by the management of the Mavericks based upon how many games he can win for the team. If he fails to win, he gets fired.

Get the analogy, leftie? Why don't you have a problem with Dirkowitz's pay?

And as a stockholder, I want the Evil Corporation to make as much money as possible and increase my stock share's value. If it means moving production to China, so be it. If American workers can't compete, that's too freakin' bad. Welcome to the modern world. Get off your butts and stop whining.

News flash: when you lefties are done punishing the achievers in this country, you will still be an underachieving wimp. Only thing different is you won't have anybody to blame.
So answer the question: what criteria do you favor for deciding when a corporation is "evil"? Or should ALL corporations, even ones with three employees, be destroyed because they have "Inc." after their name?
No.
Try reading the original comment.
Your asking this question is just spin and totally ignores my comment you made the reply to. Guess it was so well-spun even its author didn't recognize it. Typical repugnantcan.
You might want to slow down a little and give your brain time to catch up with your fingers.

The case against the NRA:
New police documents were released today from the ongoing investigation into the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown, search records reveal shooter Adam Lanza had amassed a gigantic home arsenal. Among the items that were seized from the Lanza home:

1,600 rounds of ammunition, and numerous magazines, for various types of weapons.
An open gun safe, stocked with all sorts of ammo.
A sniper rifle and several hand guns.
Nine knifes, one bayonet, three samurai swords, and some kind of double-bladed spear
A rifle scope, binoculars and several holsters.
Various other items used by sports shooters and hunters, such as eye and ear protection, and paper targets and an NRA member ship certificate (the NRA denies it).
Video game consoles (including the first-person war game Call of Duty), multiple cell phones, and notes about local gun shops.

There is NO "case" against the NRA. The NRA didn't commit this crime.

Dear Editor.

I know and appreciate Sen. Tim Johnson’s position on guns and the Second Amendment. I would ask him to ask the progressive liberals he is in contact with who are antigun and anti second amendment why is it the progressive liberals acquire guns, then kill [movie goers] and children in schools'? Why are no conservative NRA members involved in mass shootings?

Ft Hood Shooter: Reg­istered Democrat and Muslim.

Columbine Shooters: Too young to vote … both families were Registered Democrats and progressive liberals.

Virginia Tech shooter: Wrote hate mail to President Bush and to his staff. Registered Democrat.

Colorado theater shooter: Registered Democrat, staff worker on the Obama campaign, occu­py wall street participant .. progressive liberal.

Connecticut school shooter: Registered Democrat. Hated Christians.

Common thread is that all of these shooters were progressive liberal Demo-rats.

Curious, isn't it? So I was thinking, maybe we should just make it illegal for Demo-rats to buy guns.

Problem solved. I think that is a fair solution. After all. it is for the children too.

The killer was a member of the NRA and in good standing.

The NRA put the gun he used to turn those children into hamburger in his hands.

The NRA fought and continues to fight background checks that could have prevented this tragedy.

The NRA blames video games and pledges to do absolutely nothing to stop future massacres.

Liar...try again.

Adam Lanza, mom had NRA certificates

“There is no record of a member relationship between Newtown killer Adam Lanza, nor between Nancy Lanza, A. Lanza or N. Lanza with the National Rifle Association,” the organization said in a statement.“Reporting to the contrary is reckless, false and defamatory.”

A review of the NRA website shows that the organization offers a variety of education and training programs, and also provides online templates for certificates. Organizations around the country also offer what they bill as NRA certificates upon completion of certain classes.

A spokeswoman for the NRA confirmed to POLITICO that it is possible to possess a certificate from the NRA without being a full-fledged member of the organization.
