Samuel Colt died in 1862 and his company soldiered on until this day. Henry Ford died in 1947 and I am driving a Ford right now (and no it is not a 40's model). Walt Disney died in 1966 and now Disney is worth almost 35 Billion dollars and has recently bought out Marvel Comics. American companies have a strange way of long out lasting their founders, after all some Conservatives even believe they are real people with the power of freedom of speech.

Just so you know corporations are nothing but people, Randall.

When you call for higher taxes on corporations, you're calling for higher taxes on individuals. Individuals, that is stake holders like corporate boards and employees (yea they are stake holders too) are getting taxed higher on their dividends. And it's the profits that allow job creation.

No business run into the red can create jobs. Not one. Oh I forgot. Unless Bob Huets is the local EDC Director and will give a company money regardless if they create jobs or not. Just as long as he can say he tried.

I asked the question about Apple because Steve Jobs was Apple. When you think of Microsoft you don't think of the thousands of millionaires who worked their way up to that status. We think about Bill Gates. Oh yea Bill Gates made millionaires at Microsoft.

Wow. I'd love to have a job there before my government tries to tax it into oblivion.
