    Huh? What tax are you referring to? In any case, a tax is not the same as compensation for damages. Ex post facto laws are specifically about crimes/torts.

    So you would rather have the nanny state government pay for the mess?
    What happened to taking responsibility?
    Unlike you, I do not believe taxpayers should have to pay for another corporate screwup. I guess you just want bigger government and more taxes.. Looks like just another rightwing hypocrite to me that always wants the government to babysit..

    I took my position already, I'm still positive that it will rebound in a year or two.
    In the mean time I can DRIP my dividends and gain some cheap shares.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    You should have waited.
