    What's wrong with profit Without profit.. there is no business.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Profit is good. If I didn't profit, I wouldn't bother going to work.

    But it's not one person raking in all of the profits! It's why you have to look at profit margin.

    Profit margin is expressed as a percentage for a reason. There are liablilities, assets, losses, payroll considerations, advertising, etc. etc.

    If for instance, you are taking in .06 in profits, but your costs are .94, you are at a break even more or less, regardless of whether the figure used is ten dollars or ten billion dollars, what's left after expenses has to be used to pay dividends to investors, re-invested, etc. So it's a completely irrelevant point to use dollar figures where percentages are most appropriate.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    It's a corrupt industry whining about not getting more than 6% profit out of the billions they rape out of the American public.

    As such, they can shut up.

    Anti-corporate rhetoric coming from someone using the libertarian symbols. If you're a libertarian, then you know that companies can't force you to do anything. As such, if we're getting raped because they deny service, then take it up with the government for not prosecuting fraud as they should.

    The people in insurance industry profit exessively... in a manner which causes my premiums to go up so a bunch of executive cocksuckers get their annual 2 million dollar bonuses.

    Profit is ok.

    Excessive profit and the expense of the working class ... NOT OK.

    Coporations would and do sell their souls in the name of exessive profits. They then use those profits to buy off politicans so that laws that favor them are created.

    This is true political and corporate corruption at its finest.

    Stop defending their illegal actions.
