    I agree.

    Our government shouldn't be coddling anyone...whether wealthy, poor, corporation or individual. All should to sink or swim based on their own choices.

    Well, certainly a portion of it anyway.

    I have a few thoughts on what they could do with it.
    Gasp! People holding on to their own money! Oh the humanity!

    Typical conservative mindset that views giving someone a leg up as a negative, and thinks everyone that's sinking has made bad decisions.

    My wife and I run our business exactly so, and it has grown on average 30% anually every year of its existence. And our employees love working for us.

    Not me, the government. Unless you think that paying your fair share is unfair.

    Do you think government should pick winners and losers? Do you think government should compensate the losers? Punish the winners?

    Do you, with your liberal mindset, think that is a positive action?

    I have no idea what you think "fair share" is, so I don't know if it's fair or not.

    Look...you are changing the parameters of this discussion from telling companies what they should do with their money to telling companies to pay taxes.

    Get back on track, eh?
