    It's more than just Obama bailouts. This is a symptom of the corporate capitalist model we now run.

    Good news for the American Leftists, Ikari.

    Two more capitalist corporations just announced they were moving to Canada. We don't mind them so much up here, in fact we encourage them to come.

    1) What does this chart mean?
    2) What is the change in the total wealth of the nation?
    3) What is the impact on the legal working American?
    4) What is the impact of between 12 and 20 million illegal aliens?

    Apart from the 1%, it seems that the American Dream is dead. Sad.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    Profits are "soaring" becaue of profit taking, reduction in force, closings of targetted locations, and wanting to get the returns taxed at the current rates.

    Businesses don't want to GROW their operations until they understand what the tax implications and general economy will be. There is no confidence in what the administration is doing, or the world economic outlook.

    It's not hard for an established company to make a quick profit by cutting costs, especially if they don't have a union to deal with.

    Businesses will grow where there is a market for their services. Someone will be there to take that plunge. The reason they are not growing is because there is less buying.

    Too late. We have the Free Trade Agreement and businesses know that.
