    Maybe that's why I am "left-leaning Libertarian" because I can see all the empirical evidence showing that "Whats good for business is NOT always good for the nation." All I am asking for on the part of American corporations is a little enlightened self-interest. All I see is companies like Wal-mart who will do anything to increase profits at the expense of their employees. Labor is a commodity, yes. But using and abusing it like Russian Tzars? I don't think so.
    I'm a student of history as well, however - you and I both know the problem with businesses were communal monopolies.

    It's impossible for that to happen in present times given competition and how far as a society we have come. Long gone are the times when there was only one business in a community and everyone was forced to work and buy from that business.

    Besides, there was nothing there to even take responsibility for IMO.

    If I was her I wouldn't be sorry......It's not her fault progressives are intolerant.
    Exactly its others intolerance that is the problem not her and her brother harassing people.

    Of course! Where is the data?
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    Dude, you can't see how throwing up "welfare state" benefits runs completely contrary to the point? Throwing that argument up is saying that it's okay to be paid crap, you got welfare to fall back on.

    That's exactly Wal-Mart's thinking. Why they cut hours for "full-timers," and are increasing both part-time and temporary workers. To pay less, and require the government to cover the rest in the form of food stamps, medicaid, and other "supplemental income." So you are advocating business create work-arounds so their employees can suck off the welfare system!?!?

    Crazy!!! What could you possibly be thinking???
    If I stop responding it doesn't mean I've conceded the point or agree with you. It only means I've made my point and I don't mind you having the last word. Please wait a few minutes before "quoting" me. I often correct errors for a minute or two after I post before the final product is ready.

    Those who are jumping to claim she is being treated unfairly are.

    I don't know what she is.
