Re: Because corporations are people too!

Always applicable when it comes to our government and the legalized bribing system they have in place to further their wealth and the wealth of the ones around them.

"When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men living together in society, they create for themselves in the course of time a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that justifies it."
- Frederic Bastiat

wow

lobbing=greasing. So what's the surprise here? Anyone that sees this as unusual needs to get into the real world... I will go out on a limb and say that the new guy isn't any different when it comes to the details.

Who played who?

The administration wanted the headlines that they were tough on corporations, while pretending to do something for the so-called disenfranchised.

Great example of "Crony Capitalism",

which is not pure Capitalism. It's the worst kind, because Big Govt still pulls the strings, and Crony Capitalists know how to appeal to the Big Govt types.

Best example (in the recent movie "Atlas Shrugged Part I") is James Taggart. He sucks up to the Big Govt types, as they throw him scraps, letting him run the railroad.

Comcast are just plain liars

Comcast Lobbyist Delayed $10 Broadband to Grease NBC Deal
So what else is new?
Comcast has shown time and time again that they are NOT an ethical company.
You'll be way ahead of the game if you consider everything that Comcast says is a lie.
