    We are witnessing the fruits of Capitalism! Wealth is created by free entrepreneurs using labor and/or capital to make things, or provide/perform services, that other people find valuable-capitalism! The great thing is that everyone who works for Apple, who invested in Apple, the people who buy their products and the taxes Apple and their employees pays benefits the entire world! Socialism is the enemy of wealth creation! The fruits of socialism are food stamps, governments hemorrhaging red ink, unemployment, dependency and poverty! Capitalism is the engine of prosperity, progress and abundance! Liberals do not like capitalism because it is competitive there are no "equal" outcomes, some do better than others depending on their skills, work ethic and efforts! They want equal outcomes but sadly socialism generates equal suffering, like Venezuela, Nicaragua or Cuba! Liberals never learn, nor will the admit that rising economic tides lifts all ships! Thank goodness we finally have a President who understands the difference! Our booming American capitalism economy is now the new economic wonder of the world! Thank you Donald J. Trump!

    If they are doiing that well they could certainly lower their prices. Capitalism over greedy capitalism is the choice we should be supporting.
