    Those who have been spouting how evil corporations are and they don't pay their fair share in taxes, should be very upset about what these three are doing.

    Advil Labs and Proctor & Gamble, along with FedEx, are volunteering their time and money in order to help people who can't get their meds because of hurricane Irene.
    They will be delivering Ice as well as meds that need refrigeration. Plus all medication that people may not be able to get after the hurricane.

    That's great!

    Remind me again where anyone said all corporations are evil.

    It must be fun to create an argument for the opposition and then go out and try and show how wrong that argument is.

    Yeah, I'm at the end of the first page of that thread and so far I don't see anyone claiming corporations are evil. Oh Rabbi, I'd say you can do better than that, but I honestly don't think you can.

    Well, I did some volunteer work yesterday, so I guess I don't need to pay my taxes anymore.

    So they're giving free healthcare handouts to people without making them pay for them?

    I thought that just encouraged laziness and dependence.

    Voluntary donations direct from the source for an emergency situation... not thru involuntary contribution and redistribution... slightly different, unless you are a hyper-partisan hack who does not want to see the difference

    Sorry, but I have to disagree. It's not slightly different.

    It's drastically different.

    ;)
