  •  "For profit/Not for profit" - There's a difference (0+ / 0-)

    I can't believe that anyone is so stupid that they don't know the financial difference between "for profit" and "not for profit."

    The first inflates the cost of doing business, lards a hefty dose of "profit" on top, and then bills the government (we taxpayers). This is making some people a whole lot of money.

    The second bills the government (we taxpayers) for "the actual true cost of doing business" WITHOUT larding on the "profit."

    Which one do you think results in the best buy for the government (we taxpayers)?

    If you said "NOT for profit" go to the head of the class.
    If you answered "FOR PROFIT" it is time for you to stay after school for remedial work.

    Remember that the next time you hear any elected official, national, state or local, say that some function should be turned over to the private sector. If you hear that, look around the room for a fool. If you don't see one, then it is you.
