[/quote] Yeah, the arrogance of corporations dictating you and your government how to behave. Telling you that you have no rights, only duties. Telling you that you don't deserve dignity if you don't have a university degree. Telling that if you can't accept to be a slave, you deserve to starve. And you call yourself a democracy :rofl: [/quote] If you don't want to work for a company, you start your own business. The grunt hourly worker shouldn't be dictating how a business owner runs his company. Unions shouldn't move in and dictate how a business owner runs his company. There are enough government rules/laws now to follow - we don't need more. I do agree that our lobbying system needs a little work. But it's not just businesses doing the lobbying and placing pressure on our lawmakers, either. The entire thing needs to be revisited. [b]Telling you that you have no rights, only duties. Telling you that you don't deserve dignity if you don't have a university degree. Telling that if you can't accept to be a slave, you deserve to starve.[/b] That stuff? That's just BS. [/quote]
