    So the picture is now perfectly clear you support the raping of the poor and middle class of America, You support the advantages that the Chinese have over Americans, you support the bills that make it easier for Americans to lose jobs as long as it lines the pockets of those with enough money to invest in those corporations.

    How long do you think it will be before the Chinese nationalize foreign manufacturing and call in thier markers? Can you speak chinese?

    according to some, not to have any loyalty to their employees or the country that made their attainment of wealth possible.

    more evasion and diversion.

    what is the purpose of a corporation. and why should someone who has a fiduciary duty to make profits for the owners of a corporation show any loyalty to a parasitic government or a parasitic labor union?

    To me I find this to be shocking. In my opinion, I would think the right is primarily to blame, for catering to the wealthy.

    As they say, "the rich get richer and the poor get poorer."
    Perhaps another government program would help.

    of course if one is envious of the rich or sees many of the rich as one's enemies and taxation as a way of punishing the rich, no rational argument against taxation will be persuasive
    No you did not. All you did is give us the standard Turtle post in which you state your belief based on a complete misunderstanding and perverted distortion of the reality of the position of those which you disagree with.

    And then you could not resist playing your ENVY card ... for what is it now... the 8,392 time?

    if envy is obvious I will note it and the comments I see directed at the rich, especially heirs, ooze envy
