    Ummm . . . where's the part about these companies being "run into the ground"?
    It's not "tolerance" if you already approve of what you purport to "tolerate."

    They shouldn't be but its not the government's proper role to have any say in the matter

    No it's Algebra 101 you can't divide by zero. One of my more advanced texts said it was "absurd."

    yeah vader, dems have no business interests. not a single CEO has ever given a penny to the dems. Those wall street barons gave only to the GOP

    God do you realize how idiotic your rants sound? You ought to spend some time checking out who gave money to the dems in the last election
