Chris, who exactly are you trying to bag out with that post?

'Cause if you're trying to bag out "socialist Democrats" or some such nonsense, then you really don't get the profit motive at all.

I'm not trying to "bag" anyone, whatever tha means. There's a misguided notion that corperations are evil and don't care about anyone, and you just proved it by thinking the only reason they're doing this is for profit. They couldn't possible be doing this because people are in need. No. Think the of the good press they could get. And I bet if the majority of the victims where White they would have donated double what they did.

I didn't say they only did it for profit - I said you don't understand the profit motive. Completely different topic.

The profit motive only applies to two things:
1) internal corporate affairs, and
2) removing competition.

So that's why I was pointing out that your rousing on anti-corporates was a misunderstanding. Corporations donate all the time. Doesn't mean they don't screw their workers through the nose (yes, I did intend that imagery) and exploit the 3rd world.
