    The lefts claims that they represent the working class that they and they alone represent the Middle class and poor aren't substantiated with anything other than empty talking points.

    Creating MORE poor and targeting the Middle Classes discretionary income via " bait and switch " legislation and policies that drive up energy cost and kill jobs isnt representation.

    hen philosopher....never heard that one until you said it a few posts earlier

    of course, the company cant run in a lot of cases without the people that make it happen

    but you act as if the people employed are more important than the ones that risked everything to build it from scratch

    let me put it another way

    "everyone is replaceable, except the owner"

    i hope you understand that basic fact in every company.....

    it may not be easy to replace some...hell it may be damn near impossible....but the only ones that cant be replaced are the owners

    they can sell to someone else, who takes on their responsibilities....that happens all the time

    but those responsibilities never go away.....

    yep

    Buffett is a great example

    his empire is layered by companies owning companies

    but eventually it always leads to people, or a person at the top

    it may take a few layers to get there....but people own the businesses
