    See my post #5 above. And besides, that's not what Middleground is talking about. She's talking about any corporation.

    Hilarious. But it's still not up to you, or anyone else not involved with the company.

    I doubt there's really that much dismay.
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    In essence, I agree with you. If a company is doing all the things it should, and is in good financial shape, the government has no business dictating how they should run their business. On the other hand, if the company begs for public money, then as far as I am concerned, the public can bend over and say "if you want the money, then kiss my ass and I will give it to you", and the company officers can then choose to either kiss ass or quit their positions and become door to door vacuum cleaner salesmen.

    Ridiculous example, of course, but they still have freedom of choice.

    Apply this to yourself.
    X simply blames you. X can get along by destroying you.
    Y says you make more money then him. So Y gets the excess you made.
    Z thinks you waste money..so Z wil now run your finances.

    Obamas college classroom mentality Communism is just as full of crap as Communism in general.


    Obama is trying to cash in on the naive view of many at the bottom(usually young college kids) that ripping down the top will benefit them when it will only hurt them more.

    If that's what it contracts for by accepting the gov't check, then so be it.

    But Barney Frank wants to ride "anger" all the way to dictating to all businesses what they're allowed to pay their execs. That's no world I want to live in.

    And that's absolutely not the right way to go about making law in a free society.
