Feinberg is using the same model as Romney at Bain Capital. Buy a solid company. Saddle it with debt. Walk away with millions and a mushroom cloud in your rearview mirror.

One of the best lines in the original Wall Street movie is;

"Now, in the days of the free market when our country was a top industrial power, there was accountability to the stockholder. The Carnegies, the Mellons, the men that built this great industrial empire, made sure of it because it was their money at stake."

Feinberg has no allegiance to the Remington name.

One of Mrs. Wabash's friends worked in the online and catalog advertising division of a large telecom company. The division was bought by a private equity firm. I told Mrs. Wabash that her friend had seen her last raise. That it will eventually get run into the ground and dissolved. It's taken about ten years. But the friend hasn't had a raise in ten years and believes the company will go belly up some time this year. Corporate debt will be but one factor.
They told me if I voted for Hillary Clinton the president would be emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable. They were right. I voted for Hillary Clinton and got a president that is emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable.

There was nothing scarier to a large segment of the redneck community than a Black President that they thought would "take their guns!"

What's craziest is that they never gave any indication that they were coming for anybody's guns. But the conspiracy theorists went crazy with it and we had an 8 year run on guns and ammo. Should we call it a bubble?

Actually it is far off, Wabash. I'll elaborate below, but first a few observations:

Every time there's a senseless shooting somewhere the liberals start clamoring for this or that type of gun to be outlawed, and, of course there are those who want to outlaw ALL guns.

Even if it were only one or two types that were outlawed, it's not a giant leap to presume the government would come for those.

Some gun owners actually agree that some of those changes would be a good Idea, except that the gun control extremists wouldn't be satisfied with that. It's the same slippery slope fear, that abortion rights people fear when discussing outlawing partial birth abortion, even though they may be opposed to partial birth abortions.

I don't own a gun, although I've often thought about getting one or two. Had Clinton been elected, I certainly would have. I still might get one, but I might not.

But here's one thing every post in this thread is missing. Had Obama or Clinton (had she won) indicated they were going to try to outlaw and confiscate guns, gun stores, like the one in Wabash's post, would not have been where people would have gone to buy their guns. Those purchases would have been registered, so the government would know where to find them.

If I do buy a gun during a gun friendly administration, I'll buy it from a gun shop, and it will be registered, but if I fear that the government would come for my guns, I know several people who own many guns, some registered, and some not registered. They would sell me some.

I'm trying to get my head around the idea of Deep State Agents coming to take away guns that you don't have. So you go out and get some illegally, cuz... gun control.

And then you complain about people doing that in Chicago.

"My side." I see. Paranoid much? Did Alex Jones tell you about me? He got his story wrong.

Your side. I put quotation marks on it. It was referring to those on your side of the gun control issue. Nothing paranoid about that.

And believe it or not, while I've heard the name before, I didn't know who Alex Jones was. I thought it was the name of the former Obama official who called Trump's election "a whitelash."
