  •  I compare it to this: (0+ / 0-)

    Facebook bought a company for $19 billion, and we're supposed to marvel their hard work and ingenuity.

    But there's 1000 other companies that do the exact same thing, some of them better. One will sell for $2 billion, one for $100 million, one for $50 million, one for $5 million, one hundred others will break even, and the rest will lose money.

    We're supposed to eliminate any fall back option for those entrepreneurs in order to "inspire" them. That's a brutal system.

    I'm living in America, and in America you're on your own. America's not a country. It's just a business.
