    Amazing just how stoic the rich can be in the face of ou… er, their, adversity.

    Hollingsworth forgot how “competitive” business really is, even though he bribed legislators to rewrite all the laws to rig the game in his favor.

    Actually, Stillson’s idea was to offshore all the employment to increase the bottom line. He would also sub contract maintenance to rid the company of most employees.

    we keep forgetting that (Seamount) – if one bizman says “it’s too restrictive, business will suffer!” we should call his bluff. Another eager one will take his place and do just fine.

    Leftists imagine themselves to be bold, daring, and original when they attack the wealthy by parroting centuries of stale bromides.

    Sorry to bore you with centuries of injustice, pschearer. Hey – you know what would really be novel? Addressing issues instead of issuing smug ad hominems!

    No, your stale bromides don’t bore me at all. But it is a good thing you said that it’s my alleged ad hominems that are smug, for if you meant that I was being smug, that would certainly be an ad hominem.

    And since you used the word “novel” (wink), I suggest you read Ayn Rand’s “Atlas Shrugged” to understand the real role of the wealth creators creators throughout history.

    Now that I’ve mentioned Ayn Rand, just wait for the ad hominems to begin as the Leftists parrot decades of stale bromides.

    Well, now that you have mentioned Atlas Shrugged, how can I even dream of fighting against you? You win of course! Oh woe is me!</end sarcasm>
    So, inform me oh wise one how much role did 400+ years of slavery serve in “wealth creation” in USA? How about in Ancient Rome and Greece? How about ALL the wealth UK sucked out of India during the time it colonized it, how much does THAT play in so called “wealth creation” of yours? How about wars, where do you think the trillion plus dollars USA spent on 10 years “wars” in Iraq and Afghanistan wind up?
    Oh wise one, please teach me because after all, you have read the writing of some amphetamine addicted boring old Jew fart lesbo who at the end of her life used socialized medicine!

    By coincidence, I have just started reading Atlas Shrugged. I’m only about 300 pages into it, but it certainly reads like a fairytale.
    The leaders of industry have no control over legislation and are suffering because of it. Maybe not a fairytale. A satire?

    @icky mung-mung: Does GoComics really need anti-semitic or, for that matter, any anti-ethnic group commenters?

    Why, oh, why, when yoou were doing so well on legitimate points did you have to resort to lameass name calling. You sound just like the people you’re objecting to, and if I can’t tell you from the bad guys, that must make you a bad guy too. Think about it.

    I read the first hundred pages of Atlas Shrugged. The characters are wooden, one-dimensional, & obvious. The style is didactic & insultingly simplistic. The writing is pretty dreadful.

    This cartoon shows about the complexity that Rand’s novel shows, and we can read it & grasp it in about a minute. I would not base a society or economy on this cartoon any more than I would—or would any sensible person—on Atlas Shrugged, but Tom The Dancing Bug’s point is salient. Executive pay is out of control and has lost touch with reality, and the responsible position for the federal government would be to tax the executives at extremely high rates so that we could use the money to help the oppressed, the unemployed, the destitute, and the working- & middle-classes.
