Walmart and the Press

I have no idea if http://m.washingtonexaminer.com/article/2550063/ is real or not, but I certainly hope it is.

The author of the original article demonstrates how badly “the rich” and “the corporations” are portrayed in the mainstream media.

Part of the problem is Warren Buffet’s statement on how his secretary pays more taxes than he does.  Actually, this is a mistake. His secretary pays a higher PERCENTAGE of his income than he does.  Don’t kid yourself into thinking his poor little secretary pays more actual dollars to the taxman.   Somehow this misconception has been overlooked in the mainstream media.

Actually, these articles are all wrong.  It is not the duty of the rich or any for-profit organization to create jobs or decrease the gap between the rich and poor. Their only duty is to make money, and there is nothing wrong with that.  Who are you to micro-manage their payroll?   Who are you to decide how much workers “should” be paid for the jobs that need to be done?  

If you are the one offering the job, you have the right to set how much you pay for the job.  If nobody signs up to do it, you’ll either have to pay better, or do the job yourself.  There is nothing wrong with that.
