    George W. Bush turned a $500,000 into a $15 million return by having the taxpayers of Arlington Tx pay for a new stadium.

    Is this a new one? I can’t find the year, but I thought the dailies were reruns. I remember some that seemed to be more than 20 years old, but this one would seem to be less old, assuming it isn’t new.

    This strip seems contrary to corporate bigwigs who knowingly risk workers’ lives out of “concern for their investors”.

    In today’s version of capitalism, the goal is to privatize profits and socialize losses. The worst thing that can happen to the investors is they get a tax write-off, so it’s kind of a win-win situation for them.

    It doesn’t matter if it is pure capitalism or impure communism; without restraining laws the ruthless will suppress the masses.

    The key word there is “assuming.” Investors voluntarily assume the risk. Nobody forces them.

    Some gambles are more dangerous than others. This is especially true if you don’t investigate first.

    Before that he avoided a huge loss on his oil company as it was going bankrupt by knowingly committing a felony. He sold his shares just before the announcement. He was told by his lawyer that would be criminal insider trading.

    I don’t think any of the dotcom dudes ever cared about their investors. I think they all knew that the bubble would burst.

    Jim looks like he could be another of Duke’s kids. There could be more of them than Earl, after all.

    Of course you can’t care. That gets in the way of making money no matter how you do it.

    Capitalism is the exploitation of man by man and Communism is the reverse.
