    Imagine Bain Capital just bought the company you worked at for the last 20 years. Are you relieved?

    What if they decide to move that company to China? Are you happy that the money they make will still go to Mitt Romney due to his retirement package?

    OK, forget everything else.

    Bain Capital just bought the company you have worked at for the last 20 years. Are you relieved? Do you still feel a strong sense of "job security"?

    too stupid as usual!! Bain bought or invested in companies that were going under or starting up for the most part so Bain did bring tons more job security than before!!

    See why we are positive a liberal will be slow??

    God you're ignorant. Bain is a private capital company. They don't "buy" companies, they invest capital into companies that are requesting said capital. You write of Bain as though they're a leveraged buy-out firm. They are not.

    And to answer your question, yes, if my employer needed capital to survive, I would be pleased they succeeded in their efforts and especially so if they earned the investment of a capital company as well regarded as Bain. In most cases, if companies like Bain refuse to invest their capital in a company, that company is headed out of business.

    The only thing that could possibly give a reasonable person a sense of 'job security' would be an employment contract. If, like most people, you are an 'at will' employee, there is no such thing as job security. You can quit if you like, they can fire you if they like. Life's tough, get a helmet.

    What are you suggesting? That government should prevent private companies from seeking to lower their expenses?

    What kind of Marxist bullshit are you spewing here?
