Profit became a dirty word when the people who couldn't make any figured out what the other guy was doing, and had a fat cry about it.

Kerry needs to go after the government for taxing the shit out of gas so that small businessmen can have a fighting chance at staying in business. While he's at it, he might go after the government for taxing the shit out of small businessmen so we have a fighting chance at SEEING a profit.
