HERE IS A BIT OF AN EXCERPT FROM A GREAT ARTICLE EXPLAINING JUST WHAT BAD VENTURE CAPITALISM REALLY IS AND WHAT MIT ROMNEY AND HIS PALS AT BAIN CAPITAL WERE REALLY DOING (FOR THEIR OWN PROFIT) TO WORKING CLASS PEOPLE...
"...Vultures take meat that is already dead and complete the final loop in the cycle of life.
Bain took a company that had already been restructured and was surging in profits and cash. There was never any interest by Bain to restructure KB Toys, that had already been done.
Bain purchased KB Toys simply to raid its cash, and they did so during a time when the rest of the country was undergoing a period of reviewing the founding principles of the country.
To call what Bain did to KB Toys as 'Vulture' Capitalism is an insult to Vultures..."
As Jim Hightower explains it, is that “the wealthiest 1 percent of Americans possess more net worth today than the bottom 90 percent of us combined. Worse, these privileged few and their political henchmen have structured a new economic ‘normal’ of long-term joblessness, low wages, no benefits or worker rights, miserly public services, and a steadily widening chasm between the rich and the rest of us.” We must restore sanity to this nation.
