Re: Mitt Romney Hit Piece
I was hoping for a response, if you've been reading my posts lately you'd know I point the finger at everyone for the economy, but I figured the far left view, now ironically deployed by the anti-mitt (priceless), was my best shot.
You missed an excellent opportunity to call BS on me.
Plain language: I was pulling your leg 'cause you tend to assume everyone who argues with you is a lefty anti-capitalist.
Economic sustainability is, however, actually very interesting, and it involves private entities, that are focused on steady profits, and realistic growth goals not usually driven by the public trading of stocks, and short term gains for the private jet set. Not that I really blame them (the romneys) or hate them, because everyone went to sleep and left the cookie jar right out in the open. While I screamed bloody murder about this (during the 80s and 90's, gave up during the reign of bush), my bourgeois co-workers stared at me as if I had bugs crawling out of my ears.
There is an emerging trend toward cooperatively run companies, employee owned companies, and just plain sustainable capitalist run companies, because it's now down to our survival as a country. I won't mention the Union run companies so as not to raise any partisan hackles.
The next paragraph contains my personal attempt at optimism:
The traders and flippers, while lining their pockets, have actually left the door open for competition, because when they merge and absorb various entities, and "streamline" what's left of them, customer service, product support, and product quality, and productivity usually suffer (and as the "hit piece" showed, some of them just plain disappear). As the economy spirals downward these things, will become more important, and consumers will be more inclined to shy away from the more cheap unsupported and disposable products because they cost more in the long run.
Pessimistic disclaimer: Could be too late though.
Off topic, let's start a pool as to how long before we stick a fork in Vbulletin.
I saw tons of posters wander through last night, with little or no activity.
Welcome to my ghost town everybody!
