There's little wrong with America that can't be fixed with a bit more attention to corporate profits. To boosting them, I mean.
I know, it doesn't seem politic to say such things right now, what with presidential candidates ranging from Hillary Clinton to Mike Huckabee ridiculing CEOs and channeling the class-warfare diatribes of discredited doomsayers from 75 years ago...
How refreshing to learn that not everyone is reacting to economic uncertainty with the rhetoric of "class warfare."
It's abhorrent when Democratic hopeful John Edwards savages oil companies, utilities, banks and insurers for their supposedly rapacious behavior, ignoring the fact that millions of Americans own stock in these corporations — directly through 401(k)s and IRAs or indirectly through pension plans — and are relying on continued healthy profits to help finance their retirement, their children's education and their parents' long-term care.
Who are these big, evil corporations? Why, they're you and me.
