Or the 9/11 bailout (read money in ceo pockets) of the airlines. Which was a fucking crock of fetid donkey shit.

The gov't pays for 100% of McDonald's employee training costs.

So, is welfare for the individual okay, but for companies, which employ tens of thousands not?

Or what about the bailouts / state run companies of the countries we're in competition with?

How does one decide which company gets the Fat Government Bailout Check, and which gets nada?

You would *think* it would be based on how many citizens within the country would be out of jobs.

But, increasingly, I question whether this is true.

I thought companies were supposed to be self supporting!?!?

People are supposed to be self supporting and aren't.

If you're going to have a socialist hand out system, how can you make a distinction between people and companies?

Because companies have an infinite lifespan? People don't?

Companies have the lifespan of their profit margins.
They're NOT infinite. Ask 65% of the tech companies that folded went the Tech Bubble burst.

People with no money go without food, and die. Companies just go out of bussiness, that affects the people yes, but indirectly.

Companies exists to earn profit, if they don't why should I, the taxpayer subsidise them. I care about people (to an extent). I don't care to line the pockets of ceos who are incompetant

Okay, fine.

The only way a company can die is if it does very poorly.

People *will* die. No ifs, ands, or buts about it.

So a company has the potential for an infinite lifespan.

Problem with that, is when a company does poorly, and is about to die, it gets a goverment funded injection that makes it healthy again.

What do you consider corporate welfare?

the firing of the striking air traffic controllers by Reagan (probably to help his business buddies in the airline industry!)

Talking about rough dealing with unions as a bad thing will probably not go very far in this crowd.. <laughs> Besides, the air traffic controllers were federal employees or so I thought.. Or at least paid by the government, not the airlines.

They are federal employee's. But don't let that stop anyone's tinfoil conspiracy theorys. If nothing else, it's amusing.
