Question For Today

-- by Dave Johnson

Question: Is there such a thing as a good or bad company? CAN a company be good or bad? (Is a company sentient?)

Is there any definition of a good or bad company beyond following the law and distributing profits to shareholders?

If a company is acting in ways that we do not like whose jobs is it to change the way the company is acting?

One word: Blackwater. Yes, a company can be pure evil. Who can change it? I fear the worst as this corporation has sucked up hundreds of millions of dollars and has tentacles into the very heart of our government. Our only hope is Obama and a seriously Democratic congress. A slim reed...

What about Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac? Are they good or bad? Taxpayers are going to pay to ensure their continued existence. I vote bad.

Good is as good does.
