    This and his neocon credentials might be the only things the mainstream right would like about him.

    Apparently, the board's rules on copyright don't apply to Joe.

    Why do some idiots incapable of following basic rules and then wonder why others mock them?

    I'm not sure why one sentence in an article was a "copyright" violation.

    Specifically since I linked to the article it came from and sourced it.

    I also wonder why you are engaging in the deflection of not wanting to discuss the point.

    Is it good for America that we have these equity pirates that essentially go into companies, fire as many people as they possibly can, and then dump the stock off on unsuspecting investors for a profit?

    A bit of both, actually.

    I think these firms kind of show a problem with American attitudes, from the person who "flips" a house with shoddy improvements, to the wholesale looting of bigger companies.

    I guess I am also bothered by what this tells me about Romney's character. He was already rich when he went into Bain. There was no real reason - other than greed - for him to essentially destory people's livlihoods and in some cases communities, to make himself richer.

    Not a religious man, but I am reminded of the story the Prophet Nathan told David about the wealthy man who still felt the need to steal a poor man's sheep.

    Once upon a time, you got rich in this country building things. Today we get rich looting them. And you wonder why we are in such dire straights...

    That this guy might stick us with another four years of Obama, yeah.

    This guy's business record is what John Kerry's war record was in 2004. Looks great from the outside, but if you start looking at it closely, it's a much uglier picture.

    The strongest argument that the GOP has against Obama is that we are fully three years into this recession and unemployment is as bad as it's ever been. Heck, went out to run some errands, and you have strip malls out where I live where half the stores are empty or out of business. He's had a terrible jobs record.

    And who does the GOP want to run? A guy who was part and parcel of the job killling practices.

    So you got Obama who "really cares" but isn't getting anything done vs. the guy who put people out of work, hires illegals to do the lawn work at one mansion while complaining another mansion isn't big enough.
