To me, Capitalism comes in three forms.
1) -Conscious Capitalism: Ten people get rich by starting a company that employs 1000 people who receive a good pay, good benefits and job security.
2) -Predatory Capitalism: Ten people get rich by deliberately causing 1000 people to lose their homes or their jobs.
3) -Stupid Capitalism: Ten CEO's run their businesses into the ground causing 1000 people to lose their jobs but then receive an annual $1,000,000 bonus each as a reward.
A person who applies the last two forms isn't a "Free Market Capitalist". He's a greedy parasite and curbing his depredations is really what the Occupy Wall Street movement is all about.
do insects, fish and trees go to heaven when they die? they are living things, and "God" created all living things, right? maybe they go to different heavens, a tree heaven for the trees, insect heaven for the insects ... and of course tree hell for the sinuous trees, fish hell for the fish who have sinned, et cetera
"In God we trust" ... what does God have to do with money unless ... unless ... God IS money; think about that. In "money" we trust. makes more sense, does not it?
(Many are taught in the public school by the NEA that profit is evil.)
Really, from what crack-inspired nightmare did this comment come from?
I never taught that, nor did any teacher I ever knew......only that greed and selfishness are not good character traits as opposed to kindness and compassion that are
Jesus taught the same thing, BTW.
Mathousla's first year annual salary was 15 cents. Depending on how old you are surely your salary was less.
While all this rich bashing is going on, please tell me, How many of you ever got a job from a poor man. Poor is a relative term anyway.
People don't start business for the sole purpose of providing jobs for others, like the Soviet Union seemed to think, Comrades.

The Primary factor in gaining wealth and prosperity is a strong WORK ETHIC.
If you don't figure that out, then your not going to make it anywhere.
Obama's Class Warfare...........promoting socialism.
Socialism, for those that would be slaves.
I worked as a school teacher for ten years...my starting pay was $18,000 and I was a single parent raising a kid by myself. At the end of the year, instead of getting a $5,000,000 bonus for being a greedy screw-up, I got a coffee mug saying "You're A+". That's it.
But when I meet one of my former students, now grown up, and they thank me as someone who changed their life for the better, I thank God I was a teacher, whatever the pay scale.
Can you imagine some Wall Street millionaire being told what I get told....? Never gonna happen.
I'll take my life, thank you, and leave the envy to others.....
Some of us are meant to be artists or school teachers or just your common everyday assembly line workers.. What the hell is the matter with you? You talk like your so entitled but the fact is, without those employees of yours doing YOUR work FOR you, you wouldn't have a pot to piss in, just like the rest of us! THEY are the ones that make your money for you and you act like an ungrateful ****, which you are, of course!
Do you think because a person is fired or let go of their jobs that makes them stupid or bad people? You damn money-hungry, greedy CEO's are never happy with what you have, you always want more and the trouble is, you get, you get it by firing people or raising your prices even when people are having a difficult time just making ends meet! And then you blame US ordinary people when we complain that you have too damn much and tell us to 'go out and get it for ourselves'! Fool!
Will you kick your kids out on the street because they desire to do something else with their lives then follow in YOUR footsteps? Like I said, not everyone is hardwired to be a big inventor or an actor or rock star! Not all of us have the know-how or talent to make the 'big bucks' but you ACT as though we should!!
You kind of make me sick.. Too much is never enough for the likes of your kind.. If you had your way the only people that deserve to be living are the filthy rich, of which you obviously count yourself among..
I hope you and yours remember what happened to little ol' Marie when she said 'let them eat cake'!
The responses on this article are really amusing. They smack of jealousy, envy (one of the 7 deadlies), and an entitlement ethic that is really sad. I was a cop's kid ... started a biz at 22 and grew that biz from 1 emplyee to 1600 employees through hard work, resolve and a never give up mentality. So, this boy was never born with a silver spoon, but ended up a multi-millionaire. And I had employees that worked for me for over 20 years. They grew with the company, had families, homes, cars, sent their kids to college .... why, because I didn't piss and moan about the gov't, the entitlements of the rich?? I worked and lived the American dream. It is totally still out there ... but I doubt any of the folks on here will live it because you are too busy complaining. Grow a pair and put it on the line and do something worthwhile. So .... what have you accomplished today??? Go out and make a freakin difference .... wah, wah, wah, woe is me ... you ought to be ashamed of yourself!!
