    So you copy a thread that already exists just to get 25 cents for an alternet post?

    How pathetic.

    Now we know it was used for executive pay - and taxpayers may have to replace it.

    Rat is a loser. Never has anything constructive to offer.

    Maybe you need your neighbor to issue a cease & desist on me.

    Privatize the profits, socialize the costs. Plenty of American corporations play a version of this game. Coal (You know? CLEAN coal?) companies play this game by failing to install scrubbers to take a lot of the air pollution out of their emissions which end up causing respiratory illnesses (and death) that taxpayers may have to pay for.

    Walmart engages in a version where their employees can't afford healthcare because they don't work enough hours to qualify for the company plan and ultimately have to go to an emergency room on the taxpayers' dime.

    There are LOTS of examples.
