    lets be honest, when Romney bought stock or we buy stock, or buy anything, we hope what we buy will appreciate in value. That is not evil it is wonderful, it is how the human race makes progress.

    Do we want a society where people buy stuff and cause it to go down in value? Do we want Apple for example to go up or down in value or to go up and down in number of jobs it offers?

    This issue, sadly, merely requires a childlike common sense that the liberal will not have.

    Romney, through Bain, bought the stock; acquired a majority interest, issued high yield preferred shares (or junk bonds), pulled out Bain's money with a profit, saddled CST with unsustainable debt, and had the taxpayer foot the bill for their underfunded pension fund.

    That's not an investment, that's a scam. You seem to be the one who lacks any sense, understanding, or intellectual honesty, to call it like it is.

    Haven't you been paying attention? The mere fact that Romney or me or you or anyone has money they care to invest with the hope of that investment growing in value is the problem. Since not everyone has enough money to set some aside for investing just isn't fair. Why should some people be able to attempt to better themselves financially when others are locked out of such opportunity by their life's circumstances?

    That he wanted to "spread it around" is what Barry told Joe the Plumber.

    If that were the case why would anyone continue to do business with him, when in fact he was at Bain doing that for over 20 years?
    I realize that asking for a logical response from you is damn near like asking you to fly. But anyone reading this will see the absurdity of what you say.
