    good ideas from Nader: immediate special dividends

     

    "Given that non-financial companies are sitting on two trillion dollars of inert cash and other liquid assets,....these companies [could]disgorge ten percent in immediate special dividends to their long-parched shareholders who are, after all, their owners. Loosening the executive locks on this hoard of money would provide $200 billion for more likely spending in the market place. Companies like Apple, Google, Cisco, Intel and Microsoft alone are sitting on well over $200 billion cash. To these coddled, indentured U.S. companies he can invoke President John F. Kennedy's challenge--"Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country."

    Second, ....those very profitable corporations that have benefited from the government bailout, or pay little or no federal income taxes, [could] voluntarily contribute to a public works fund.

    • Nader hasn't had a "good idea' in his entire F'ing life!

      • I disagree. American Cars would still be junk today, like they were when he wrote "Unsafe at Any Speed".
        Actually that's not true. There would be NO American Cars today.

        He did have one terrible idea. If he had not run for President, the SCOTUS wouldn't have been able to name W President.

        As bad as Nadar's idea to run was, I had a worse idea. I voted for the SOB.

    • Unlike your president, the corporate ceos know what fiduciary responsibility means. They don’t just write checks’ and give free money away to anyone. shareholders know why a company must maintain cash on the balance sheet. Shareholders in said companies already get a dividend.

      look, "f" the rich … they have enough money and they are not going to share with anyone!!! They are parasites! these idiotic companies have all sent jobs to china!!! obama was too stupid and did not know wtf he was doing … he never should have just grab-bagged a trillion-dollars … what a clown!!! contracts must be legal and binding! and, this obama dip is a lawyer!!!

      how???

      if america had a brain, obama would be in jail.


      stfu nader, you idiot!
