    Just who do you think creates jobs?

    Cart pushers are WalMart?

    Gina Reinhart loves you.
    Have a chart comparing that to their competitors? Bet you don't.

    What about a chart showing the cost of regulations too? Bet you don't have that either.

    They only create jobs in foreign sweatshops. If labor cost justifies that, why not hire foreign CEOs to come here and give the empty suitcoats a taste of their own medicine? I'm sure an Indian CEO would work for a fraction of what our bloated fatcats get. Even the Japanese top brass only get 11 times their workers' lowest wages, while the American Capitaliban get 456 times what the people who actually do the work get.
    On the outside, trickling down on the insiders.

    Hey, richboys! Imagine the boot of democracy stomping on your faces, forever.

    As a business owner and employer I invite you to put your superior business ideas and strategy to play and hire 18000 recently unemployed bakers. They and about 23 million Americans eagerly await the actions and deeds of the enlightened folks that always know better yet never seem to DO better.

    Bah, he's an idea man, a visionary -- you can't expect him to actually DO anything.

    The most valid statement on this topic.

    Anyone who believes they can do it better, do it.

    Get used to workers fighting for better wages - nationwide. Your beloved CEOs get better pay as time goes on. Workers are people, too.

    Sorry, but reality isn't what Gina Rineheart says it is.
    Capitaliban hero Herbert Hoover started out in the same business and place and with the same attitude that Rinehart squats on before dropping her load on her nation. This is what happens when such conceited thieves get political power. Despite all the expensive and widespread propaganda they buy that says otherwise, guillotine fodder like this don't earn their wealth; they get it by luck or cheating. The more loot they get, the easier it is for them to steal more. This hidden economic process is like the disaster that would be caused if the NBA champions got the #1 draft pick.

    They know they can't do it better. They don't have any desire to try to. All they want to do is hunt down examples of success and destroy them.
