    Taking money from someone else's pocket (i. e. taxpayers) without permission is being a leach, or a thief, or a welfare bum. The legality of the theft is irrelevant.

    In a free market, legal theft can't exist. When you learn about the concept of free markets instead of watching foxnews all day long, this will become clear to you.

    Can't. Moronic conservatives (including the ones that like to call themselves "Libertarian-Right" because they think it sounds more cool) keep voting for pols that like corporate welfare.

    In the same way that the government subsidizing Solendra and other "new energy" companies is corporate welfare. I'd much rather invest federal dollars in the economy by providing incentives to businesses than give it away to sleezy, lazy scumbags who squander it on lottery tickets and cigarettes.

    Uh uh, NO. In a free market, you don't get to decide how the govt. chooses to spend my money.

    End of discussion. You seriously need to learn about the concept of free market and/or how rent-seeking is detrimental to it. The federal govt. ought to have no business picking and choosing favorites at the expense of taxpayers.

    I'd just as soon the government not give anything to anybody, quite frankly. That would make a truly "free market."

    But you must not really believe that or else you wouldn't be celebrating a big welfare bum like truett cathy instead a real entrepreneur that succeeds solely through his/her own efforts.

    He might have done something later in life that you disagree with but he WAS a real entrepreneur.

    "Cathy was born Samuel Truett Cathy in Eatonton, Georgia on March 14, 1921. He attended Boys High School (now Henry W. Grady High School) in Atlanta. Cathy served in the United States Army during World War II. Cathy began the chain in the Atlanta suburb of Hapeville in 1946 with a restaurant called the Dwarf Grill, named because of its small size. It was there that he, along with his brother and business partner Ben, created the chicken sandwich that later became the signature menu item for Chick-fil-A. The original restaurant (since renamed Dwarf House) is still in operation and the company operates other Dwarf House locations in the metro Atlanta area. He married Jeanette McNeil in 1948; the couple had three children: Trudy, Don and Dan." - S. Truett Cathy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Nope, when you get $11.4 million in welfare from uncle sammy each year, you're a leach, not an entrepreneur.

    Hell, if the feds gave me that much a year as a freebie, I'd have more than enough capital to easily start my own chicken business and wipe Chick Fil-A off the map. Or maybe start my own chain of premium European style-cafes in upscale communities and wipe out Starbucks in those areas.

    Their revenue is 5 billion dollars per year. This 11.4 million I'm assuming you are talking about is the reported 11.3 million that was given out to billionaires COLLECTIVELY between the years of 1995-2012 (17 years). That is an average of 660,000 per year for all of the billionaires collectively. Out of his 5 billion per year. What was that to him? Probably less than 50,000 each year? He probably did not even know he got that money.
