Where the hell is DirecTv?  Has anyone ever tried to get out of their 2 year trap subscription? It is impossible!  Not to mention rip off prices.  I think any company that sells more Chinese made products than American products should be the most hated.

I didn't get a single one right.  Not because I hate them, but because I thought people in general hate them.  I had Walmart, Microsoft, Pfizer, General Electric, and Halliburton.

The words “retail store” and “greed” are synonymous in all stores in the world and especially the US – no matter what they might say about caring about the customer.

You guys are kidding me right? We can start with J.P. Morgan Chase aka Chase Bank as place holder for a 1 thru 10 singularity. They have their hands in everything including YOUR Governments back pocket. Drill down and its sickening. Amonst Collaberators....World celebrated .

Wells fargo.... After treating my wife (on a joint account) Like a 2nd class citizen (they wouldnt let her make changes to the account they insisted I come into a branch and do it...they gave her a $200 withdraw limit and me a $500. when I questioned this as sexist they said it is not sexist it is typical to give the secondary person a lower limit I said "What part of JOINT says there is a secondary and what makes you think it would be her?" they didnt have an answer)  they basicly made it more convieneint to get a new bank then to solve my problem (close compromised account and get me a new debitcard) I just opened a High interest checking account with 3% interest up to 15k with Lake Michigan Credit Union and i will give them my $13K in deposits.

No industry lies, steals, deceives, and kills more people in the U.S. than the insurance companies:


1.  You are never in good hands with any of them,

2. None of them are good neighbors,

3. Why would anybody believe a reptile with a phony accent -- no more Geckos please,

4. Progressive, the Nazi party claimed the same thing,

5. Any health care or mail order medication provider ...

Monsanto! They are poisoning our food supply with herbicides, pesticides, and GMOs !  Genetically  Modified Organisms known to cause Cancers and Autoimmune Diseases!

What a stupid list - written by a shill for corporate America.  Here is mine...

Haliburton  -  making profits on the blood of others

Wal Mart - willing to have anything made from the sweat of the oppressed

McDonalds - serving obesity to millions of the poor

DuPont  -  willing to manufacture the most noxious chemicals and dump the remnants into our air, water and earth

General Electric  -  manufacture of weapons of mass destruction, lacking a consciousness to the mass murder they have created.

Let us be honest to what is going on in our country!

if you want to feel the hatred from their own employees, ask any United Parcel Service worker about the company.  getting worse by the day!

Where is Home Depot on this list?  The store feels old and dirty, can NEVER get anyone to help.  I canceled my account with that store and have NEVER gone back.  The store that gave me such bad service is located on Marks and Sunset in Henderson, NV.


I was surprised the other day, I bought some items for a grand daughter from Penneys and they were actually MADE IN AMERICA and that helped me make up my mind to buy them from Penneys.  I will buy MADE IN AMERICA any day of the week!!!
