Pff, for a major corporation like them, 5 million is pocket change.

Should be at least 5 billion.

Hey Bill Gates isn't the richest person in the world by luck. He has skill in there too....and he took risks to get there to. Dropping out of college? That's serious stuff right there....if he screwed up right there....we wouldn't hear about him. But you know...Sevoma...people have said that so-and-so will be the end of us for all 43 presidents that we've had (united states only).

I completely agree. Whether you like their products or not, that doesn't matter. That is the great thing about capitalism, you don't have to buy the products if you don't want to. Consumers have great power in capitalism, the consumers dollar is what drives the products we get.

Class warefare is pointless, and counter productive. Don't hate the people that achive fortune, strive to get there yourself.
