    Everytime the "Masses" take from the rich it ends in untold horror, or do you not read history?
    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.

    if they don't start hiring, i find it difficult to believe that people will have the discretionary income to continue purchasing their products.

    Many of the cash rich companies are tech related. It does not seem that Apple is having much trouble on the demand side.

    Correct, so the fact that they a lot of cash and the unemployment issue are not related. It is another straw man made by folks who do not understand business.
