He apparently is not willing to put political opinion aside...unless you think liberals are more rational than this guy.
    As I pointed out to Kevin, replacing an employee isn't a new hire. Not to mention, you have no way of knowing that the guy isn't over-staffed and could stand to lose a few people.

    The economy isn't recovering, as long as Obama is in office. You might was well accept that reality.

    Most Libbos are waaaaaay behind this dude in the rationality department.



    Sure they would, in a heart beat, because fossil fuel producers are their direct competitors. Would green companies criticize say SUV drivers? No they wouldn't because they could eventually be someone that buys their solar panels. This would be like criticizing SUV drivers...Democrats make up a large portion of voters, voters for Obama made up over half of voters in 2008.
    Currently, in this country, any businesses biggest competitor is the government.

    This is America, the guy of course can say anything he wants to, at the same time, it's perplexing that his business would the medium he would use.
    You're just made because he's referrencing Obama. If someone had done this when Bush was in office, you would be like, "Right-on!!!".

    Actually, that's a good point. I wasn't thinking of it in terms of expanding business....now that I think of it in terms of actual expansion, rather than mere survival, it makes the statement...almost WORSE, lol. It's like saying, yeah, I'm gonna let my business go to HELL if I actually start getting busy again...unless we replace Obama...

    Either way, whatever. If we had more people for whom principles mattered more than money, we would never have been put into this situation in the first place. We need more people like this guy.

    Re: 'Company Policy: We are not hiring until Obama is gone'

    I'm in the healthcare business, and while I see a myriad of problems (foremost is high delivery cost) I do not see the system as inefficient in terms of delivery- most of the time. Almost all the time. I am not a doctor. My business provides healthcare in the home- but I can get a patient admitted, diagnosed, and treated- even elective surgery on the same day. I don't find that inefficient in terms of delivery of services. And I do have indigent patients- and they are treated no differently, except for the elective surgery.

    In terms of payment and "middle-men," the patient normally deals directly with the provider in terms of clinical need, and directly with the health insurer in terms of cost and payment. There are not three separate "middle men" for the average insured patient. For the uninsured patient, they do deal with the pham. companies and the hospitals for costs and payment, but this happens after treatment is rendered. And payment terms are always flexible- and most of the time, the hospital and providers expect to take a lot of loss on the arrearage.

    I still don't see inefficiency either way. It can inefficient for the providers, but not for the patient.

    It is his right.

    A dry cleaner/seamstress/shirt laundry business in my city located in the high income earning section of the city was blaring right wing hack radio all day. Collectively many people stopped taking our business to this indoctrinated owner.

    Surprise ... the guy 6 blocks away provided better service, was polite and better prices. Although politically progressive and libertarian he is more open to various pov.

    The parking lot is empty at the other place. Their choice and our choice.

    I go to my cleaners to get my clothes cleaned. Odd concept I guess, but that's the kind of consumer I am.


    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    I haven't been posting on her very long but no I wouldn't. I would be saying what I'm saying now...why would you potentially alienate any customers.

    I may like the message if it was about Bush. Just like you're correct that I don't like the message because it's Obama. It doesn't change the fact I would never (if I was a business owner) do something like that.

    Yet he says he intends to hire new people as soon as Obama is gone. Why would he want to do that?

    Re: 'Company Policy: We are not hiring until Obama is gone'

    The thing is Congress controls the legislation, not Obama.
    So Obama could be gone and we could still have the same set of goobers passing the objectionable legislation.

    If the guy isn't planning on hiring anyone soon anyway, then this is just good marketing. If not, then it's kind of dumb to make business decisions based on emotions.
    I may be wrong.
