    When all the "competing" corporations for said product are in kahoots with each other AND with the politicians, stacking the deck, fixing prices, and strangling out any whiff of competition, so that We The People are screwed no matter where we spend, THAT IS A BIG PROBLEM. And this is precisely what's happening. The short term result of this kind of predatory behavior is the erosion of a once-thriving middle class. The long-term result is feudalism and plutocracy, followed inevitably by violent overthrow. History has shown us that, over and over.

    A word as to the political landscape as it relates to the corporate landscape. The two major political parties are doing "candidate-fixing" in the same way the big corporations are doing price-fixing. No matter who you vote for, that candidate has been bought and paid for by his/her party. Which in turn has been bought and paid for by the big corporations. AGAIN, A BIG PROBLEM, because it doesn't matter which candidate you choose, any more than it matters which corporation you choose from which to buy your commodity; We The People are screwed either way.

    THE PROBLEM IS NOT JUST THE BIG CORPORATIONS. THE PROBLEM IS NOT JUST THE POLITICIANS. THE PROBLEM IS BOTH.
    I agree fully. The things you state are illegal and should be prosecuted. Anti-trust prosecutions are becoming rare and big money has bought a friendly political landscape. Nowhere is this more obvious than in the health insurance market. Unfortunately the fox is guarding the henhouse. But to blame every one of use who worked at the corporate executive level is wrong. people ought not to bite the hand that (literally) feeds them.

    The radical liberal-socialist agenda that you are concerned about being hijacked Phillip, is exactly what is happening. The administration, democrat party and the main stream media all support this movement. The class warfare card being pushed by all three is classic. Like it or not money is what makes the world go around. Be it capitalism, socialism or criminal activity, it all comes down to money. Them that has it wants to keep it and make it grow, them that don't have it thinks they are entitled to it.

    Wrong my friend, according to over 200 court cases brought under the 14th amendment, a corporation IS a person and is afforded many rights as a direct result.

    However, I agree with the rest of your statement regarding the legal obligations of the corporation to gain the largest profit possible for shareholders.

    A corporation is an ENTITY, not a person. When applying the penal law this becomes evident. Corporations cannot commit certain crimes, only a person can. A corp, LLC, LLP, etc. is an entity under fed and state tax law as well and is treated differently than an individual. People are not subject to the state corporation law, LLC law, partnership law, NGO law or any subdivision thereof. These laws alone govern the activity and practices of the entity. The word "person" however can be used and is frequently interchanged in contracts through assignment to rclarify and condense wording(any individual, person, corporation, LLC, or LLP, hereinafter "person").

    To add context, im a political science major at a state university and im currently studying the evolution of ideologies ie, orthodox liberalism, realism, Marxism, etc.

And now that these businesses have paid back the bailout money, I would like my portion back, please.
    When has the Government EVER given money back? (Except as vote bribery efforts.)

    As for chosing to "bail out" anyone.... there were any number of economists, Execs, even Wall Street Types, et al who affirmed that if a Company gets itself into THAT much trouble, it deserves to go under.

    You might even remember that the first time through the vote for the first "Bail out", it failed in the House. (The Dem controlled House, at that.)

    So just what was it that changed all those votes in the House the second time through? Maybe someone told the Congress how much the FDIC would be on the hook (read: taxpayers) if those REALLY big banks actually failed. ....and you thought the "failed derivatives" where the BIG picture?

    As for the WELL worn out "high Exec salaries", this was well discussed during the incident itself. Contracted salaries are to be paid. End of arguement. Unless, of course, you wish all aspects of Contract Law to be upended..... there are any number of delinquent "homeowners" who wish nothing more than that to happen.

    Then we hear about the GROSS Corporate profits...... how tiring. You do realize that large oil firms typically "turn" in the neighborhood of 5-6 cents of profit per gallon of sales. IIRC, The Fed Gov't's "take" is roughly 3 times that amount..... then we toss in the individual States' "take". ... and we try to "pin" high fuel prices on the oil companies?

    Which brings to mind a long standing queston I have had.... Why is it, when the "gas tax(es)" were fostered off on the sheeple, ostensibly to pay for "infrastructure" upkeep and new construction, that our erstwhile President seems to be continuously moaning about the necessity to renew our infrastructure? What the hell happened to all that "gas tax" money? Frittered away, like virtually every source of funding the Government invents?

    If we are in such dire need of more money for infrastructure, shouldn't we be talking about taxes more germain to the need? Oh, but "The People" wouldn't stand for that, given the already "high" costs of fuel. More smoke and mirror Government modus operandi.

    You know, I'm just about to the point where I don't care who gets elected if he/she could do just ONE simple thing..... Instead of spending their air time on campaign rhetoric, class warfare crap and "blame game" tactics..... Just get up there and tell it like it is. Straight and to the point.

    THEN tell us what they plan to do about it. If we don't like it, we will so inform them. Quit with the smoke and mirrors, the "I have a plan" garbage, the out and out lies!

    The Executive Branch exists to run the Country, under the Constitution and the Law. Nothing more than that. Fence sitting and uttering banalities, frankly, gives me the feeling that the "Elite" simply doesn't believe that we can think at all any more. THEY are the only ones that know what is good for us.

    THAT is not "representation", that is dictatorship. (But the Government Dependents certainly embrace the idea that all those little difficulties of life are the responsibility of the Government. Be assured that I do not believe that should be the way of it.)

    Why is it that everyone whines about CEOs' salaries when a top ranked pitcher, passer, shortstop, batsman, hoops shooter can attain salaries equal to or exceeding most CEOs', with much less in the way of responsibility to carry?

    Why is it that "actors" can command top salaries to "star" in a film? Hell, they don't even have to put in the same level of memory work that stage actors do. They do their "thing" in pieces and parts rather than three acts.

    No, there are "overpaid" people and there are OVERPAID people.

    Bottom line.... if you have no "talent" at all, you will gravitite to jobs that require no talent.... and will accrue little in the way of wages. THEN you try to blame someone else for your sorry waste of a life? ...and expect someone else to support it? Give me a break!

    The problem with the concept of unicameral "equality", is that we simply are NOT equal. It's all in how you make use of what you are born with.

    A mind IS a terrible thing to waste.
