    Capitalism

    Like all corporations. I'm all for free markets. Corporate leaders embrace free market principles in bear hugs--at least until they get in trouble. Then they become very socialistic placing their hands out to clean out the PUBLIC coffers. Gimme, gimme becomes their battle cry--we're to big to fail-- It'll cost jobs!
    While they beg for taxpayer largess, they give corporate leaders hundreds of million is perks--rape pension plans--cut work force and overwork poor stiffs who are left.
    Some day Joe Blow will wake up (hopefully) and realize American capitalism is no longer private enterprise.

    Is no puzzlement!

    • The problem is that capitalism provides the jobs that feed the middle class and pay for our infrastructure and educations. The government does not feed us, they don't employ most of us, and they don't care about most of us. Without capitalism, we are dead or Russia and there isn't much difference.

      You got a better way? Let's hear it!
