Quoted from V8haha:
I’m sorry this is the owners responsibility!
Asking for a hand out is pathetic!
My locations are closed but I’ve prepared properly.
Your having financial difficulties then sell some games to raise money and take care of your problems like an adult!
While I agree with you theoretically in stating in fiscal terms, "let the free market system work...survival of the fittest", will this same argument apply to the airline industry or the cruise industry or the hotel/casino industry when the real bailout starts...not this $1000 check stuff they're talking about to "average" Americans?
What's a cruise ship worth? What's a 737 worth? How many of those will get sold to increase revenue to keep their respective companies going? Delta just recorded the most profitable year in their history...$1.6B profit sharing payout...$3B in dividends and stock buy backs. It will be interesting to see how quickly their hand comes out when the real cash starts getting thrown around.
It's the exact same argument as last time...we can't let "X" industry fail. The industries wouldn't fail, but some very large companies could. However, we all know that's not going to happen, because in this very anti-socialist country handing out money to BIG companies is ok. It's only the small handouts that are bad.
Having said that, I feel obligated to state that I'm not going to donate to this particular cause. But anyone who is, or wants to, won't be called names by me.
