It's their money to do with as they please. It's not the government's money. It's their money. If they want to give it out, fine. If they want to invest it back in the company, fine. If they want to fill a vault with it and dive in like Scrooge McDuck, that's fine, too, since it's THEIR MONEY. It certainly isn't yours.


This could only be true in a free market environment, which US isn't with all bailouts, subsidies, government no bid contracts and so on. If you Scrooge McDuck does 50% government contracts, than he is 50% on the dole and a big portion of his gold is taxpayers money.
