    Do you, with your liberal mindset, think that is a positive action?
    I believe we should have a benevolent government who's job is to assist, and promote the welfare of all its citizens. I'm not too interested in your selfish, calloused world.

    Uh, no. The ACA is doing what it was designed to do to get people health care, and the economy is doing so well that the DOW is up to 17,000 and the corps have all those record profits to hoard.

    Well, are you a supporter of the US military. How about the roads you drive on? Are you being intentionally coy?

    Sigh...

    Nice words..."benevolent", "assist", "promote".

    The problem is, what you do and your claims that your action is benevolent, will assist, promotes. If, by doing something that you claim will do those things, you remove freedoms, prey on those you don't like, punish those who don't do what you think they should, then you are doing more harm than good.

    I have a few thoughts on what they could do with it.
    If they buy the Dallas Cowboys 437 times they will be the proud owners of 437 losing teams....

    it should come as no surprise that predatory capitalists are hoarding cash.....anymore than the sun rises in the east.....they spend it freely on efforts to obstruct economic, social and political justice which means essentially that they support the Republican party....who are indeed the "Handmaidens of the Boardroom" ... Thus as it's ever been .
    The problem with predatory capitalism is that eventually, the capitalist runs out of people and planet to exploit.
