    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.

    As an ambulance chasing lawyer who makes almost a million dollars per year, I resent that I am being lumped in with greedy CEOs. I employ 12 people every time I sue someone because employers have to hire temps to cover for the jury. I may not be one of the 99%, but for a modest percentage of the loot, uh, I mean “fully justified, court awarded settlement”, I will gladly fight on behalf of you little people – I mean, clients.

    All kidding aside, I’ve had great resentment of CEO pay. The justification is that without such enormous financial reward, the CEO would go elsewhere. At 70 years old, 20 or so years at the same firm and a mediocre track record, who else would hire these people for more money than they already get? So the expense gets taken from profit. As an investor, I care about that.

    Thank you, Hollingsworth Hound! Somewhere, an eagle is shedding a grateful tear over your sacrifice and patriotism!

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

    The ones who are the job creators aren’t big business, small business, sending jobs over seas or importing workers for low pay called in sourcing. It is the start up small businesses who create the most jobs and they are being starved by the banks. the banks who are sitting on $2-$3 trillion given to them by the Fed.

    They tell us that they won’t lend any of it till the “markets are calm” except that that won’t happen till they start lending money to get the economy going. My contention is that if they won’t do their job and lend then the money needs to be taken back and put to use now.

    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.

    Who in the world says “stale bromides”? Is that you, Percival Dunwoody?

    Stale bromides! Stale bromides! Stale bromides! It’s fun!

    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?
