    i eat off of china... i think it's made right here in america though.. seriously, corporations are comprised of us (we the people) anyway, how can a U.S. president condemn corporations... even his government is a great big fat pig of a corporation... not a successful one though. find someone who just got hired by a corporation, see how much they hate it. if obama wasn't such a social iberalist lunatic, he could do a few things, and switch the economy back on like a lightbulb, but that's a bright idea, doesn't jive with his tremendous and compelling ego, or his vision of utopia.

    So are the evil unions. Hence, your argument is useless, and worth nothing.

    Arguing that because corporations are comprised of people they can't be "evil" is faulty.

    In matter of fact, your right a corporate can't be "evil" as much as a union can't be "evil". They both however can do "evil" things as a unit because the people that make decisions for them can be "evil".

    I see that there is a reasonable balance of law and liberty that should be enforced by the people upon the people.

    Traffic laws for example.

    Criminal activities that HAVE VICTIMS (that eliminates the need for laws trying to keep people from doing drugs and selling their own bodies).

    If the corporation is run by people, the same applies about a reasonable amount of regulation and law.

    Taxation is a whole other issue.

    I've never been able to understand why people use such ridiculous talking points, like claiming that "liberals" hate "the rich".

    It's retarded. I'm a liberal, and I have nothing against rich people. In fact, I hope to become one soon. What the fuck is the point of using such retarded rhetoric?

    that sort of proves my point. libs hate walmart, but they like the prices. i never siad libs hate the rich. if you check the script, you will find that it's your president that was railing on corps and millionaires, do you watch tv at all?, he's on constantly you know. maybe the problem is we have no common language or comprehension. tell me obama doesn't favor the middle class. why do we have to even have a class system, when we could be one happy classless country. maybe you're not a lib and just don't know it, obmamam is a socialist and he doesn't know it...gak

    Hmm, Why do you assume ONLY libs think corporations are the enemy? What do you think the farmers thought when they were forced out by mega agriculture? How about all the small community businesses forced out by megacorporations? How about all the people who died and lost their health to megacorporations? How about all the workers who lost good paying jobs to megacorporations? You see, your logic is flawed to think only libs make that claim.

    I am not sure who thinks successful people are the enemy. Gates & many others donate large fortunes to worthy projects. Other rich people subvert the US government & buy out your representatives. Some become presidents and go on murderous crusades of torture, murder & rape of women and children who are detained & chained. So logic fails you again, because all rich people cannot be lumped together & stamped enemy.

    those are all examples... should they have seperate but uneaqual laws, or is what's good for the goose is good for the gander? how about special funding to prop up mom and pop and their next generations, no matter what? you are speaking of a double standard, my logic's flawed? is a job a right or a privilege, cause if it's a gauranteed right, the government won't be getting smaller anytime soon. conversely, should the biggest taxpayers be forced to work, do they have the right to walk away? what about inventions and patents, should the good ones be taken by the government to benifit all of society? who's the pig who's the farmer?

    Yes they are, of why not just libs dislike corporations.

    The answer seems to be, corporations are illegal and a degree of a Monopoly, a threat to National Security and the American society, and should be banned.
