We don't have to be a Banana Republic. We shouldn't be a banana republic. We shouldn't cater only to the wealthy. We shouldn't cater only to the poor. We shouldn't destroy Unions. We shouldn't tolerate robber barons. Why even go there? Why the histrionics?
Look, like I just got through telling Michael, just because we're good doesn't mean that we can stop looking for ways to be better. If someone screws us over then we have to decide whether we are going to screw them back or make them wish that they had never screwed us in the first place in a nice way....a way that makes them think "huh....I sure wish I'd though about my decision a little more because I'd really like to get back into that game".
