Profit needs to be hard capped. There is no justification for the amount of money these corporations make. America is now fascist.

You're saying being tired, having low blood pressure and a dystonic reaction(That can generally be cured with benydryl) is worse than wanting to kill yourself?


No I'm not saying that at all. If anything I'd like a medication that treats my condition and gives me none of those. Also, the age of the article does not make it any less relevant jackass.

There was also a time in America where meat packers could label their products what ever the hell they wanted even if it WAS deceptive.

So while it may be good for GDP it does not necessarily mean it's good for life expectancy/longevity.

...the Chantix debacle

CT Scans make a LOT more money for doctors than MRIs, yet are incredibly more dangerous (because they're practically (and aptly named) "super X-rays").

From the critique:

"Rent-seeking corporations are actually pushing for regulations adding barriers to entry into the marketplace."

I agree with Mr. Doren that is the case in Texas.

"...so it's bad when Microsoft makes money off a product that enhances the lives of everyone that uses it?"

Okay her assertion was a stretch but not completely invalid.
Companies have promoted anti-psychotics for a while and while they are good at treating the condition, they've caused some rather unpleasant side effects such as Lethargy, Hypotension, Various Dystonias.

Then there was t

We Americans love being lectured about the constitution by Europeans and Canadians. It's high comedy.


Ad Hominem.

But oh sure I love being lectured about the constitution by a guy from the United Arab Emirates (especially when knows what the hell he's talking about). It's high comedy.

Does a corporation pay taxes?

What is a corporation? I have a friend that owns all the shares in a carpet cleaning business and it is a corporation. He and his wife are the only employees.

Crakr:
"And if people were really concerned about 'corporations' campaign finance contributions, They should've looked into..."

Oh, what a scientific methodology. You're totally right, they should've looked into (and only into) that candidate you personally didn't support....

Lets take a more reasonable look at this. What should people look at if they really care? I'm going to say: The total amount given by corporations to either party, compared to individual donors.

I'll start you off, here's wall street's contributions:



P.S. I'm happy to limit *all* campaign contributions, irrespective of who it benefits. You gonna say the same or are you gonna wait till you see if it benefits Reps/Dems?

"From the video: corporations spent 300 million dollars on campaigns.
Reality: UNIONS spent 400 million in 2008. "

Do you know you're a dirty deceptive liar or was that accidental?

From the video: MIDTERM.
Your second stat: Presidential.

Also from the video if you pay attention: The $300 is more than the last 20 years combined for a midterm.

Ergo, the opposite of what you're suggesting is true, is the actual truth.

I'll assume for now you simply made a mistake.

Oh nooooooo.....evil profits. It should just be illegal to make money. That would make everything better.

Well @madest, YOU sure don't know diddely-squat about it! BURN! lolz!
This video completely ignores the actual issue: the Feds made a law that says Corp A CAN talk politics before an election, but Corp B CANNOT. This is the same as saying "blacks can vote, but not whites" (for an extreme example) and is clearly UNCONSTITUTIONAL. Duh!
But Annie doesn't even address this! All she does is rant about how evil corporations are destroying the world.

@Lazyme he agenda is to have the government (leftist of course) control the whole world. Corporations are seen (in her deranged world view) as compeditors to Big Government and, therefor, are evil.
Voters are evil too, unless they vote for the lefties - see the Wisconson protestors? They claim to "fight for democracy" by shutting down a duely elected goverment! Oh the irony!

"Congress shall make no law ... abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press;..."

Yeah, that totally means Congress can pass some laws restricting speech based on who or what the source of the speech is. Yeah...

Groups of people driven by profit shouldn't be given a collective voice, but other groups of people should be. That's democracy?

Learn English. Read the constitution. Note that no-one has given corporations individual rights. The Supreme Court upheld a Constitutional limit on the power of Congress, a clear and unequivocal one. That is all. Then stop the hysterics and personal attacks. They make you look an idiot.

screwzlooose

You use classic left-wing dishonesty, cutting off your quote. The preamble starts "We the people" but what about them? They "...do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America". The people are those establishing the Constitution, not those to whom it applies.

Secondly that clause of the first amendment clearly limits congress. It does not mention the "people". It says "Congress shall make no law ... abridging the freedom of speech". Congress made a law. Congress therefore broke the constitution, and the law was unconstitutional.

In addition to your flawed logic in the wording of the clause, under your logic only people would have a right to freedom of the press. If that clause does not apply to corporations then it is pretty useless.

obhwfgirl

On what basis do you claim that your government decided corporations are people? I have seen no suggestion off that.

this is a liberal cartoon. Conservative ideal calls for "hands-off" economy.

----------------
So what you're trying to say is that corporations should have individual rights because it's good for the economy for them to be able to do anything they want so long as they use their profits to fund the campaigns of the politicians that'll change the rules in the corporations favor? Just like our forefathers wanted...
