Comment I guess if your definition of success (Score 1) 99

is screwing your customers, then ok. Personally I prefer companies that make lots of great products and sell them for barely any profit so I get to have great stuff for less. A company with huge profit margins is a company that is charging more than they have to.

If you are an investor, liking a company to make a high profit margin makes sense, though I still have to question it in the case of Apple since they hoard the cash rather than pay it out as a dividend. However if as a consumer you applaud high profit margin you are silly.

There's a bunch of us in those (and other states) that don't buy into being extorted by corporations, the acceptance of hate crimes against minorities, the total destruction of our natural resources, and endless wars that accomplish nothing.

And yet you passed over Bernie Sanders for a bellicose corporate whore who was pro-torture, pro-war and who spent a good deal of her campaign assuring Wall Street that she would be friendly towards them if they would donate to her campaign. Great choice!

There is zero, zilch, nada, evidence of significant Democratic voter fraud.

How exactly do you think Democrats were able to maintain hold on the house for so many years?

Appropriately enough, Mr Gerry, who gave his name to Gerrymandering, was of the Democratic-Republican party.

Democrats still can't accept that there are apparently a bunch of states located between California and New England where people don't buy into the idea that all white people are evil racists and that 3-year-olds should be able to create their own genders. They just assumed that all that land that they only see from their plane windows must be empty or something.

Comment Re:Attack on the Free Market (Score 1) 212

This is an attempt by the government to defy the principle of supply and demand. It will fail because people will find a way. You have people complaining that tickets are too expensive and others complaining that tickets sell out too fast. You can't fix both problems in a free market.

Well it's good then that we don't live in a libertarian fantasy land, and that there is still at least a nod to social equality.

I think we should look ahead to the day when anyone trying to game a stock market is taken outside, stripped naked, and their testicles are plugged into a car battery, but that's just me.

That would be everyone. The days of farmers buying futures to protect their crops are in the past.
