Sumo,.....Surely, and don't call me Shirley, you are not suggesting that UTC is responsible for the government shutdown? A divisive Pres. Obama and a divided Congress are the architects of the "shutdown". Democracy is the worst form of governing except for all the others. It's like the mating of cats and the making of sausages, you don't want to watch.....Kid
Suemoe- It goes back to the golden rule - He who has the gold rules. I do not have a problem with any corporate exec making money if he or she creates jobs for workers along with value for stockholders. It is called capitalism and (no pun intended) it works. Problem is, there are very few leaders in corporate America or in government. Your socialist president wants to take your money and pass it around to lazy people. That doesn't work.
We do not have capitalism in this country. If we had capitalism we would not have the banks we have today. Most of them would have gone under. As you say our system is that of the golden rule and that is why the rich have all the gold. Everyday they are accumulating more and more gold and it is not because of capitalism. It is because they have made t he rules.
