You Americans and your obsession with privatising everything really confuses me.
"Sorry mame we can only save one of your sons for that amount, which do you like best?"
"Can you describe the man who stole your car?"
"Ok, that will be $500 now and $3000 when we find the car"
"Maybe you should of thought to get our Premium Deluxe insurance before getting cancer"
That word alone makes you look like an idiot. Enough with your Ad Hominem Logical Fallacy bullshit.
What you're describing is what's known as a Strawman argument. You are being ridiculous(and most likely trolling with that crapitalist comment). Job Creators would have to have a good image and treat their employees well so they don't use strikes against them. Thusly if you work for a corporation you would have some form of Police Insurance, where the police not only have to protect you but also have to punish criminals who steal from you.
Where are the poor unemployed masses in this? Forming neighbourhood watches of course.
