No corporation is putting the American dream out of my reach.
You're talking about over simplifications and all you're doing is regurgitating a bunch of Occupy buzzwords and phrases.
Saying some CEO is keeping you down just sounds like the excuse making of an underachiever.
Unbelievable that you could defend that practice.
But you never answered the question. How is that type of capitalism making America better? Hostess just closed their business, and they hadn't been paying their employees' pensions for a long time. But what did they do when they liquidated? They gave their executives bonuses on the way out the door. Workers are SOL. Executives get bonuses for shutting down the company and putting hundreds of thousands of people out of work.
Let's take a guess which side of the line you would be on had you worked for Hostess? Yet you defend the greed. For what?
Again.. How is that good for America?
