just "good question"
To quote Billie Holiday: "Those that's got shall get, those that's not shall lose...."<br />
Some things never change.
Yeah it's "Them" I have frequent brain farts.
You come at this from the wrong angle Chipumunk - and the very mindset is what is killing America. Corporations are creating jobs - 10's of thousands a month - they just aren't doing it here. They are dong it in Asia where the governments encourage business growth. The question should be, how do we get those corporations working with the United States again.<br />
Corporations don't "owe" anyone a job. They need workers, but will go where they get the most for their money just like you do when you go to the store. When U.S. workers stand around calling the corporations names while workers elsewhere appreciate the work and cooperate, can you blame them for sending the work over there? (And don't give me the "slave labor" crap. I've been to these countries and these people are LOVING having the paychecks.) <br />
It sounds to me like you just don't like that the jobs are going to people with brown skin. Are you some sort of a racist?
It's funny how a lot of us can barely afford to eat everyday and yet Tyler Perry made $130 million US dollars from 2010 to 2011. And yet the US is like 3 trillion dollars in debt?! I wonder why...
Tyler Perry? lol Like how is he even relevant ? You tried out for his movie and didnt get picked? what the ?
Loveless- try $14 TRILLION not 3. About 20% of that has been added by Obama (More if you believe conservatives.)
Rumour has it you are an acorn millionaire
maybe it's time to do some picture magic and take the puffing of those cheeks down a bit... ;) or perhaps just show them the pile of acorns you are sitting on.
Greedy, evil, rotten people run this place. They don't care about anyone else nor if the world falls apart after they're gone, as long as they're living it up all the way to their end.
"The world" is actually much stronger than it was 20 years ago. In Asia the problems of poverty have been greatly alleviated. The governments of those countries - which have begun abandoning communism and embracing capitalism - are thriving.
All legally done as the American government allows this to happen <br />
set record profits -- PAY LESS TAX
Can someone show me these "record profits" and how they break down into shareholder equity? I'd like to invest in all these companies that are making "record profits" but can't seem to find them. For all the hyperbole, the U.S. stock market is down and stock prices are down. Stock prices don't go down when companies are making "record profits." Point to Exxon Mobil, etc. but remember that profits must be shared by stockholders and there are incredible numbers of shares of those stocks out there. What sounds like hundreds of billions of dollars in profits amounts to pennies per share.
do your ears close automatically when the news reports Exxon made record profits the last quarter, several times in the last couple of years. does your hearing magically return after the news is over?
Orion - You see, you understand the number but not the effect. Exxon made more dollar profits - but across a whole lot of shares. So shareholder equity was okay but not spectacular. Starbucks and other companies in the consumables sectors did better ROI. I know Exxon Mobil well - actually have them as a customer and also hold some stock. So do you probably - though you don't know it - it's one of the widest held stocks in private funds. It's probably in more U.S. 401K plans and pension plans than just about any other. And, past, that, we're talking one company and I'll even give you the other big three oil companies - all making hug profits based on new business coming out of China and Asia - but that is hardly a robust corporate economy. There's a reason why the NASDAQ and NYSE are now less interesting to most national investors than the asian markets.
I say we rob them ;)
Mob justice. Wow, that works. Do a little reading on the french revolutions, the revolution in China, Veitnam, Cambodia, etc. You want something like that for America? That would make you more evil than **** Chaney by a longshot.
true. in spite of the oral diahrea of the right, it is true<br />
and the numbers used for Bush's end of term debt is FICTION, but not surprised by this manipulation of the truth for the sake of the right
So? What's your point?
what would help is better government policies on jobs and helping the poor, but to get these, you need a government that cares, sadly that doesn't exsist. So why did you vote these people into power, at the end of the day the social problems are caused by voters.
"Helping the poor" - You want to see trillions spent to support unfunded wars take a look at the governments "war on poverty." It's the number one reason we're trillions in debt and all it has done is increase poverty.
then i guess the people spending the money, don't know what the're doing, if the result is government debt
This is old news<br />
There is a saying about this, only a small percent of people are wealthy and the rest of the population is poor
It's happening over here too and we are apparently in a boom , our resource sector is making a killing while there are people not eating . <br />
Then when the government tried to introduce a mining tax every one was up in arms . <br />
I bought 3 bananas for $ 5.75 the other day , it's crazy . Everything over here is overpriced and it's also the basics like electricity and gas .
