Guaranteed Profit?


Posted on : 12/20/2011 10:23:00 AM | By : Dann | In : , ,

There has grown up in the minds of certain groups in this country the notion that because a man or corporation has made a profit out of the public for a number of years, the government and the courts are charged with the duty of guaranteeing such profit in the future, even in the face of changing circumstances and contrary to public interest. This strange doctrine is not supported by statute or common law. Neither individuals nor corporations have any right to come into court and ask that the clock of history be stopped, or turned back.

Messrs. Bush and Obama - and most members of Congress - should have the above tattooed on the inside of their eyelids and across their asses.
