Sometimes Capitalism is for The Stupid

Today's News

"Google reported a 17 per cent rise in profits for the fourth quarter to $1.2 billion or $3.29 a share alongside a 51 per cent increase in sales.

Analysts were expecting profits of $4.45 per share.

Shares in the company fell by nearly 7 per cent at one point in after hours trading, or $36.90 to $527.40.

The shares are now nearly 30 per cent below the $747.24 all-time high in early November."

How far are we Capitalists (nations) gonna push the issue of making more and more and more and more and..........

We most always walk feeling like shit because of what could have been.

Now, Bill Gates wants to buy Yahoo- well there you go- another bandwagon to jump onto.

Here's another thought... "Peace sells, but who's buying?"

Ha, I couldn't agree more!

Representative Boehner (Ohio, my district) responded to the news of a tax refund by saying that it would be beneficial to us so that Americans "could get back to being the good consumers that they are."

Gee, what a nice way to think of Americans. Blech.

Have you seen "The Corporation"? It appears that mega-corporations like these are just not built to understand contentment or "enough is enough." They always need more. Kind of scary when you play that out.
