Somewhat interesting article on how business in this country is busily biting the hands that feed it:

.... I don't permit my kids to use "that's not fair!" in their tearful appeals to me. Tony Soprano once shattered the windshield of his kid's SUV upon hearing the term and it was probably the single most constructive thing he's ever done for that little pain in the ass. I also don't care much for President Obama's frequent use of the phrase "fair share" either, it's commie talk and it sparks a kneejerk aversion for half the country that has yet to do him any favors in his negotiation efforts.

So no, the economy isn't fair and you can make a pretty strong case that it's gotten less fair, but that fact alone will never sway those in power.

So instead of lamenting the lack of fairness, let's talk about the stupidity of this hollowing out of the middle class in this country, year after year, with bought and paid for legislation and preferential tax treatment. ....
