    I keep repeating that legal and ethical are not the same thing, Being legal is often compelled behavior. The only thing that prevents unethical behavior is character.

    The right wing seems to applaud any unethical behavior if it brings a profit. Character has long been abandoned as a trait necessary in the business world and is more often scorned than applauded

    What we have here is classic Mitt. This is the type of "job creation" and "capitalism" Mitt chose to pursue.

    Did Romney enable company's abusive tax shelter? - CNN.com.

    Know any other talking points or slogans? Half of what said is lies the other half is misleading.

    I agree. Tough to be impressed with one-liners that don't really say anything.

    You consider layoffs or 'outsourcing' as unethical.. may of us find what Obama has done to be unethical too... And if I am not mistaken, even Obamalama himself said that Bush's level of spending deficit was 'unpatriotic', I wonder now how he would describe the current deficit??

    You know your right.... the debt is $5,000,000,000,000 less, we've reached near full-employment, welfare has been eliminated due to lack of demand, U.S. credit is still AAA, housing markets are awesome and GDP is around 10%.

    Feel better?

    Whoop-de-fucking do.

    You pimp for one of the most ethically challenged presidents since Nixon, by casting your monkey turds at Romney and some offshore banks accounts, and we're supposed to take you seriously?

    Really? :lol:
