    This is the example of the out-of-control greed that is rampant and is destroying us.

    The attitude is so blatant. They deserve their perks no matter whose money they have to use to do it.
    If they were planning their corporate junket abroad, I could understand your ire, but in this situation every dollar they spend will go directly into the American economy.

    For someone who presumes to point out the shortcomings of modern youth, you have the 15-year-old blogger's Sunday funnies pigs-with-top-hats-and-monocles caricature vision of "greedy capitalists" in your head.

    I am uncertain that a dearth of currency is really the problem.

    Something I've noticed that people are suspiciously silent about: it is, presently, within China's power to completely destabilize the American economy. In the Nixon era, we bribed them with our stockpile of corn. Here's hoping they were not astute.
