    If Obama hadn't lied so much and been so negative and wasted do much money we could have been on a real up swing last year.

    I know more about how to run a business and I think it's transferable to being fiscally responsible in Government.

    It worked well for me in City Government.
    Stop with the Obama crap. He isnt that great but he does not have the influence you give him credit for.

Ever hear the saying Money Talks but Bull**** Walks? That should be on the dollar bill in place of In God We trust. People dont care about America like they used to. They arent patriotic. They are in love of money. That crosses both sides of Congress and all across America.
    Yes, I agree with the need for balance. We have troubles when one side gets too much of an advantage, and takes advantage. Both sides have done this.

    However, it is clear that the trickle down effect many espouse is less certain than some proclaim.
    a fair wage has no meaning. I suspect your concept of fair is unrelated to economic reality

    But but but how can a company/person give us employment if all their money is being taken away /sarcasm

    I actually think it does have meaning, and it is related to economics. Take the NFL, owners can't make a profit without players. Players can't run the league. But if owners make billions, millions can equal a fair wage. How much is made, economics, matched with how much is contributed, can produce a formula for a fair wage.

    I gotta say, I'm surprised how many people still defend big business and their right to keep the lion's share of the pie. And if the workers don't like it they can - what? Move to another country? Is this just the way it's going to be? Is the American dream over? *unless of course you know how to be an internet marketer*

    Of course it has no meaning to a plutocrat.

    I can say we are NOT talking about a fair wage. We are talking about checks and balances regarding what my signature says.

    It is their right AND obligation to be more profitable.
