I posted this comment in a similar article before.

Its surprising how the Dem's complain about evil corporations and job statistics.

It seems like the percent of people working for evil corporations is going down from the discrepancy between the 2 methods of figuring unemployment.

The corporate report shows bad employment. The household report shows new jobs.

And according to the Dems this is a very bad thing. So either the DEMs like evil corporations or hate small businesses and self-employed.

They hate small business and the self-employed.

In the 1970's, when I worked as an organizer of food co-ops, I was shocked to be told that "Not everyone can be self-employed" and "The government is who you need to thank for your having your own home."

I hung on a bit longer, but the entire idea of individuality and boot-strap capitalism that did not depend on a government grant was anathema to the Left. And I have specifically heard leftist organizers tell young people to get every grant they can, so as to take as much as possible from the government while not giving anything back, ever. This is their idea of a revolutionary act.

Any response or critique of their beliefs is automatically labeled as *conservative rhetoric*. Young people who question the left are inundated w/leftist textbooks to dispute the conservative ideas.

I think their attitude towards corporations depends on whether said corporations are at the mercy of unions or not.
