Profiteering is NOT the American way or is it?

Posted Thursday, March 22, 2012, at 7:23 PM

Well, as you can tell from my last blog, I've put profiteers in my sights. Profiteering at the expense of the pocketbooks of the American public when it comes to the price of gasoline is reprehensible at best. Profiteering when it comes to peoples lives, that in my not so humble opinion is CRIMINAL! What have we as a people come to, when turning a buck is more important than a persons life? Read for yourself about how far some people will go to turn a buck. This ticks me off to no end!

I've heard of this before Roy. It IS very frustrating. As one who has a necessary medicine that I must take weekly, with a cost of 1500.00 per month, I am worried all the time, whether it will be available. It's a difference of having a life, and just living, for me.

And just so that you know, I did click on your link.... but I rarely click on links. For those of you that put them in your blogs. I don't like going to sites that I don't choose for myself, due to crap out there. But, a I said, I did click on this one, for whatever reason.

Good blog!

I try not to click on links either. I do feel that what you have to say is valid.

As long as people recognize that greed is our #1 enemy and that there are people willing to spread this disease throughout the world.

No all big businesses are crooked, but some have crooked people in them.

To Jessie and Bonnie, I will copy and paste from now on. I don't do that in order to conserve on server space.

I will copy and paste from now on.

You never offered that when I mentioned it.

I'm calling sexual discrimination.

I'm an almost 61 year old transplant from California 6 1/2 years ago. I work in road construction, those dastardly flaggers. My family roots go back to New England farms, not the big city. The last town I lived in when in California grew from 16K to 40K in 10 years, and that was enough to drive me out. I don't engage in or tolerate name calling. Name calling reduces an adult discussion to grade school play yard level. I have never served in the military, but have family members who have, dating back to WW1. I am neither a Democrat nor a Republican. I am neither extremely Liberal or Conservative. I am raising my 16 year old grandson, not what I expected at this age, and dealing with those issues as well as my health and near retirement which are 2 things I intend to talk about. I decided to try my hand at this thanks to the warm welcome I have received on Mike's blog. When I take a position, I will defend it until I am shown that I am mistaken, and when that happens, I apologize. There are other things about me that will come out over time I'm sure.
