    Greece's Biggest Company Quits Country

    Progressives, take note. Taxes drove the biggest company in Greece to leave. The Lord only knows how many Greek jobs were destroyed.

    The wages of socialism are poverty and unemployment.

    `California is going through a similar exercise as companies, small and medium size, have been leaving the state for years. The same reasons, idiotic politicized regulations, and multiple high taxes are driving out businesses and individuals to other states and countries. But the Marxism loving Democrat party cannot help itself. All they can do is raise taxes, "increase moronic regulations" and grow their fat bloated government!`

    And, they knew that would happen, and yet, they still decided it was the thing to do as fiduciary for the stockholders.

    Liberals just don't get it. The producers do have a self preservation instinct, believe it or not.
