    And who's then responsible when those mandates cause lay-offs and higher unemployment ?
    No. If you've read any of my posts on the subject, I want Business to start developing a little enlightened self-interest. Profit is good, but it is not everything if you destroy the base from whence your profit comes. If you want to sell stuff, make sure the buyers have money to spend on it.
    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.

    Why is it my responsibility to validate your source?
    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.

There's not really as much competition as people think, at least in my opinion, and this grows less and less as Corporations merge where they can, and form economic alliances where they can't.
    Competition drives the economy.

    If anything it's the government that is endorsing "corporatism" by picking/choosing "winners and losers."

    At any rate presently there is plenty of competition - no business has a monopoly on anything - at least not at the consumer level.

    Exactly - she's being accused - she's not guilty, hence the word allegedly should be used.

    She isn't accused of a crime so she can't be guilty of crime.

    This is a civil court and a lawsuit.

    Didn't you learn the difference in high school government class?

    I didn't mean or use crime in a lawful context.... The word "crime" can be used in a lot of contexts you know.

    the source has been validated it came from the Pennsylvania department of public welfare with their official letter head it is a government chart what more do you want

    you know i got the same reaction from liberals when i provided that chart in a different Political Forum they had a hard time believing that they been duped by the democrats all these years of them saying low income mothers live in destitute when the truth is if you add up all the government benefits the live as middle class

    Liberals try to discredit it because it was used by a right wing think tank, but just like you i have to point out where the chart came from, and they just like you still don't want to believe it so they just like you stay in denial. I know it is hard to admit you been lied to all these years. i understand
