    How much is enough during this epilogue to the second Gilded age?

    We all know the first Gilded age ended with the great depression and the 2nd gilded age begun during
    Reagan with Romney hedge-funders caused the Bush depression.

    This stock-market boom enriching GOP portfolios they don't give Obama credit for won't last forever.

    I did ask for a definition and you gave me the dictionary. Its your comment that was simplistic and basically meaningless. A company has no responsibility to MAXIMIZE YOUR investment.

    No Mark Levin does not call that crony capitalism. What Mark Levin calls corporate cronyism is corporations that are in bed with government and get government set asides handouts and regulations that eliminate competition. It is the companies fiduciary duty to provide a return on investment to the investors of the company.

    Should congress realize that predatory taxation is an excellent way to watch the private capital of the country go elsewhere ?

    Isn't Burger King still paying taxes on what their companies earn in the US when they relocate their headquarters to Canada?

But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Of course, because no companey or indivigual should be taxed more than 10% of their grose income anyway. The way I see it Uncle Same owes BK a 2.6% refund, with interest, and a public apology.

    Retail doesn't create jobs. If Burger King disappeared tomorrow no money or jobs would be lost.
