Bob why would you blame the corps.? When the government forces the corps to go over seas because of taxes. They tax the shit out of businesses. And just think people you want to blame the corps for everything, but they start as a small business too. They don't just all of a sudden pop up as a huge business.

If you mean me, you must have misunderstood my posts. I do not blame the corps. I blame the government, both parties.

Actually, I agree with you, StGabes. We are losing our freedoms. If you don't have health insurance through work, Obamacare is forcing you to buy it and you may have to pay $600 or more a month for it, even if you are just an average income earner. And, they're forcing you to buy insurance that meets their credentials, and if not, you lose your insurance, and/or doctor. I can't believe more people aren't against this.

Bob, I knew what you meant, I guess I meant mine like I was talking to you.
