Simple Question (maybe)...

If big business has no conscience or borders -- how can the average American hope that these entities (as represented by Bush) are not undermining the will of the people?

1. Stop thinking so much!
...if you want to understand how people who don't think too much think.

2. Yeah, I thought about about that...

...but then I thought that my initial thought could maybe preempt preeminent thoughts (but what was I thinking).

3. Obviously the right answer is that big business is terrible
Business should be regulated so as to keep its negative tendancies in check. On the other hand, capitalism has worked far better than any other system tried so far.

Finally, what is the will of the people?

4. The "will of the people" have no place in business. It is the "will of
the stockholder" that matters. The conscience of a business is only as good as the conscience of the owner or ceo.

5. Easy - DON"T SHOP AT SUCH BUSINESSES and if you must......
....shop at these businesses (Walmart because of a fixed income) then write letters and visit the manager of the store to give them your views. :toast:
