This is a trick question, right?-
Come on, now Syn - you know it's not nice to ask them to "think", they just go look in their handy dandy little "Handbook for Lobotomized Liberals" to look up the appropriate answer:
It will usually involve some combination of "nothing to see here", "pay no attention to the man behind the curtain" , "excuse me, I have to stick my head back in the ground", "nananana, I can't hear you" or some equally persuasive "genuine Liberal gibberish" [with apologies to Blazing Saddles]

It's everybodys fault except Obamas.

"President Obama told donors like Jessica Biel, Justin Timberlake (who was wearing hipster glasses), and Tommy Hilfiger that Washington gridlock is pretty much Rush Limbaugh's fault on Monday evening at a fundraiser at Harvey Weinstein's house in New York's Greenwich Village.

I'll agree that unions are a problem. I don't like them at all. Perhaps at one point there was a need for unions, but I don't think they do anything these days but put an undue burden on businesses.
However, I do NOT agree with you statement "a public corporation is responsible to it's shareholders, NOT it's employees, the country, or government."
I just believe that is irresponsible. And yes, I do own stock. And I don't want to own stock in companies that are irresponsible to their workers and country, no matter what the return on investment. Period.
I've seen firsthand how the previous corporation I worked for has literally cut of its own throat to make their stock market value stay high. Now they have gutted the company so badly that they can barely operate effectively, let alone stay competitive. Stock holders need to be responsible too. And sometimes that means accepting a lower return for a while in order to ensure future health. Unfortunately, most boards of directors of corporations, and CEOs as well, only see the immediate return - and will get a golden parachute when they bail from the bleeding and nearly dead company anyways.
It comes down to ethics, my friend. That is something "you have a bit to learn and/or understand" to use your own words.

Happens to a lot of companies, scum move to the top and the company fails. A lot like politicians.

Please, stop embarrassing yourself.
I hope to God, you don't manage other people's money, but based on Right Wing Wackos' performance whenever allowed access to others' money, you'd be perfect. You could blow it faster than Ronnie Ray-Gun or Bush did.
Every time you agree with me you pretend you don't.
Having served on the investment oversight boards overseeing over $300 million funding three city pension plans, managing a self-directed IRA, and now overseeing my companies 401K investments - I have a reasonable amount of knowledge and experience, thanks.
Now it's time to school you.
Every corporation's job is to maximize profits at the expense of anyone and everyone else.
See we agree.
Every corporation's job is to maximize profits at the expense of anyone and everyone else.
See we agree again.
That means if corporations can use child labor, pay 30 cents an hour, work their employees in toxic environments, provide no benefits, and throw the dead bodies of their employees in the dumpster, which is provided free of charge by the local taxing, or non-taxing authority -
that's what they'll do.
See we agree again.
Now here is where you lose all credibility,
after having acknowledged all corporations by definition are amoral,
by pretending that unions aren't necessary to level the playing field,
so that labor has the ability to negotiate on behalf of employees to improve the employees pay and benefits.
Yep, that guy named Bob will bring Walmart to its knees by refusing to stock the shelves in the Sheboygan, Wi. store.
This is where you lose all credibility and your posts become nonsensical jokes
It's ok to admit you think American employees exist to be used and discarded like trash to maximize profits.
That's an honest , although morally bankrupt position - but at least it's not laughable.
Absolutely a first rate post. Excellent work and absolutely true.

Ahh but, the 'blls in dnvll' types are so damned patriotic. Don't you know that progressives like myself are 'un Amer'can'. We're the ones tryin' to destroy the country. It's not the ones who support corporate welfare and profits at any cost. Don't ya see that the MAKERS make theTAKERS? Isn't that just as plain as the nose on your face?

Maybe, maybe not. Your experience in running businesses pales, thanks, as does your knowledge of taxes, thanks...
"by pretending that unions aren't necessary to level the playing field,"
They're not. They make the playing field more expensive.
"Every time you agree with me you pretend you don't."
I don't pay attention to most of what you post. It's gibberish.

You're not surprised, are you? Nah, I didn't think so.
It's almost like trying to explain something about life to a child (no, I'm not being insulting here), they just aren't old enough and haven't experienced enough to know what's going on. So many people don't understand how business works, they just want their security and want to blame "the man". They don't understand the big picture.
Ever notice how people at lower levels of a company like to bitch about those further up the "food chain" (bosses and management) and how those people don't know what the heck is going on and how to run the company? Sometimes, they're correct, the vast majority of the time, they're clueless and uneducated on how to run things...
Still feeling a little persecuted by the fact that your employees hated you?

You're "retired" now - let it go. If you don't, you might run the risk of turning into a grumpy old bitter man who shakes his fist at the world for "not understanding taxes".

Don't be that guy.

Don't make me dredge up that post where you were so far in a corner that you actually said Bush handed over a spotless economy and a perfect employment and deficit situation to Obama.

Don't make me dredge up that conversation where you ran like a scared puppy when I challenged you to an "adult conversation".

Yet you run around here like it never happened - I guess your Alzheimer's keeps you happy.

"foolish" is seeing nothing wrong with the IRS being used as a political weapon, but oh how you would be screaming if Bush were in office and this were happening to any organization with "progressive" or "move on" in the name.

and now we have the Justice Dept apparently going after the AP - but, hey I'm sure it's nothing, right.
But again, if it were the Bush Justice Dept - oh, then it would be the end of democracy as we know it, but since it's Obama - the Left just says "yawn"

Quite frankly, you can take off from Washington, DC on a commercial flight and practically be in Benghazi by the end of seven hours.

..........
One interesting thing about the voters who think Benghazi is the biggest political scandal in American history is that 39% of them don't actually know where it is.
And clearly they just have no education or knowledge of history at all.

These are the backwoods republicans that wave their flags, talk rascist crap, never read a book, and when they pull a voting lever they hope to see Triple Cherries.

In having way too much fun doing it this way.
Let's practice.
- Right Wing Wacko writes an insipidly stupid and moronic post, full of ignorance and floating in hypocrisy.
- The moronic post is crushed by facts and rational analysis demonstrating the hypocritical freeloading Right Wing Wacko's lunacy.
- That same or another Right Wing Wacko repeats the same illogical and vapid points.
- That valid post is demolished, again, simply by pointing out the facts and history of Wacko ineptitude and greed.
Repeat the above.
I only wish it was even slightly challenging to eviscerate Right Wing Wacko posts.
But then I couldn't do it while watching my kids play soccer and reading the NY Times on the iPhone - it might actually require concentration.
Just read your silly post. Do you ACTUALLY think you have any intellectual credibility when you post stuff such as this? Really? It's just the same old meaningless and faux ramblings from a LLSC. Nothing.
