that and corporate entitlements they never seem to mention all the giveaways to non human entities.

The "entitlement" I speak of is not from the government, though I think your point is a valid one, but can be found in plenty walking the halls of America's private prep schools.

corp have more money then you'll ever have

corp aren't people and like guns they don't do much, people have money and those people are in the board rooms and those people, like the folks at Hobby Lobby really do believe their beliefs are more important than yours and are not afraid to rule their kingdom accordingly.

larger corporations are able to offer lower prices regionally by underselling local business

they are able to offer lower wages too....

[-] 2 points by MattHolck0 (1729) 1 month ago

they are able to temporally lower price because they make money else where they will raise the prices once the competition is gone

in a similar, fashion a corporation could temporally pay employees

they could, but why? hungry people work for food

Its incredible that Republicans thought that privatizing SS and giving to Wall st. and not giving the people an opt out option, was such a great idea. Basically taxing the people and giving it to a private company.

But they had a serious problem with Obamacare, which is nothing more than forcing us to purchase from Wall st as well.

Neither party wants to give people choices. Choices lead to freedom, which leads to critical thinking, which leads to revolution.

Looks like your sensible positions are bringing you attention from the "stinkle" crew.

I love it!!!

Their efforts in that useless points action only shows the emptiness of their priorities.

They are the partisan politics police (PPP). It's good they avoid the substantive posts. I prefer mostly to avoid their posts, & always vote their bad comments down.

So let 'em stinkle, as long as they keep their comments of pollution off the substantive posts.

I need to do the same, avoid the posts, I do get sucked into the threads sometimes when I started I was more disciplined about it.
