To imply, as Donald Trump has, that his bankruptcies were just part of the ethical business practices afforded to entrepreneurs like him and are standard operating procedure for corporations is just an anathema to me. Just because a business practice is legal does not mean that it is ethical. An ethical business person does everything in his or her power to meet their financial obligations.

Donald Trump obviously was raised in a different business environment than I was.

The U.S. does a decent job of helping a variety of different groups of people get access and affordable healthcare through either insurance or direct aid. Folks in the middle are at the mercy of the market place.
There will be no more exhilarating and proud moment of business as when I saw my prototype IrriDigital controller receive it’s first wireless programming messages right in my little home office.
In California you can get a small group health insurance plan if you have a minimum of 2 employees working full time in either a business or non-profit organization.
