Sam I thought you knew so much about greed. Most greedy entities are in it for the maximum profit man. Who knows

To a point your right Dan, I know U.S.Steel spent a heck of a lot more trying to fire me than I ever cost them but they didn't care. I have several friends that used to try & out do one another with big boy toys, it wasn't the cost involved it was the fact that they had something the others didn't.

Lets face it any of the social goals that you speak of could have easily been fixed in the 4 years that Bush had a majority in both houses & then 2 years of one house being even, & to be fair there have been plenty of times in history when one or the other party could have done the same. What I'm saying is that it isn't one sided & it didn't just happen.

Bush made a lot of conservative noises but he never was one.

We have a government that is cannibalizing those that feed it.

AHA!!! Now I understand you man. That's why you hate corporations!!!! 8-)
You might see me less hostile to you now. :!: :P I swear I understand what it is to feel disrespected by an entity, especially if you interacted with that entity with loyalty and fairness. Are you reflective or bitter about that? I'm just sayin', just askin, I wish you well man. I know I harbor resentments like a champ. I can't get past them easy and end up burning daylight thinking about them. Maybe US Steel was a more honorable entity in the past! It's a powerful name, you would wish it would hold real good American values. I understand the saying that corporations think only of shareholder profits. That's where atrocities take place and consumers get alienated and furious, when they've been abused.
