    Businesses don't have the legitimacy in killing you. Government does and you want it to have more power

    frigging brilliant

    You do serve a useful purpose-why populism is such a joke. THe people who rant about the power of corporations end up wanting the government to have more power.


    Its like anarchists banding together to advance anarchy and in doing so creating their own government

    not always but if you play the odds the average IQ of any 10 Six figure earners pulled off the street is going to be about 30 points higher than any ten high school dropouts you round un in the soup kitchen or in the county jail

    That would make sense as less access to good education and less time to devote to autodiadactual pursuits means those with less money will usually score lower on an IQ exam. It doesnt mean they're stupid, it just means they haven't had as much opportunity for good education as those with money.

    well if you are poor and dependent and you are smart that is even worse.

    its like someone with tremendous athletic talent being a couch potato.

    There are not absolutes in life but there are trends and predictors.

    People who are born into single parent homes are far more likely to end up on welfare or in jail then those who come from two parent homes

    those who get knocked up as teenagers are far more likely to be on welfare than those who wait until they get out of college to breed

    and those with high IQs tend to be far better off than dullards

    I know you're anti-people and pro rich, and pro-business corruption. I also know you don't like anything or anybody who suggests that corporate scumbags need to be forced to be honest... even if at gunpoint. Well ... too bad. Businesses are INHERENTLY DISHONEST and CANNOT BE TRUSTED. Therefore, they MUST BE REGULATED UNTIL THE BLEED FROM THEIR CORRUPT, CROOKED, CORPORATE ANAL ORIFICIES.

    Corporate ****holes need a choice ... be honest or serve hard time without parole.

    Ah yes, a typical idiotic and childish remark about Obama. I'm sure it's his fault too that these CEOs ran their businesses into the ground all these years.

    Yep because as we know, no businesses were doing this before Obama became president.
    i hardly think you can say that Mark hurd "ran HP into the ground" quite the opposite actually. He has made them the top seller in laptop and desktop computers.

    you are getting to be idiotic with such claims

    I am pro freedom and I know that bothers populists types who are mad that some succeed and they fail. Claiming businesses are inherently dishonest is a stupid and childish claim without any evidentiary basis. I am still waiting for you to explain what causes this level of inane nonsense. If corporations were as bad as you bray they are, I am sure one of them would have called in a cleaner on you by now

    I ask again -- where's the part where the business was "run into the ground"?

    Typical pro-business corruption rhetoric.

    In the late 1800s business where making CHILDREN work 18 hour days in environments that were hazardous. Why? Because businesses WERE NOT REGULATED AT THE TIME. In the early 1900s businesses hired thugs to assault anybody who talked about starting a union. Why? Because they didn't want to allow more favorable working conditions for the working class. Again ... LAWS HAD TO BE CREATED TO PREVENT SCUMBAG BUSINESS OWNERS FROM PREVENTING UNIONIZATION.

    If you believe business is honest, you are SORELY MISTAKEN. Businesses MUST be regulated until it hurts and businesses must ABSOLUTELY BE BARRED FROM PAYING LOBBYISTS TO INTERFERE IN THE WORKINGS OF THE GOVERNMENT.
