    It takes a rightwinger to blame the president for their own failure to run a succesful business. It's just a part of their principled belief in "personal responsibility" (for everyone but themselves)
    Which types of business and in what industries?

    If you want to expand your business to more than 50 people, do you think you'll have trouble complying with the law?

    Well after some bratty temper tantrums Pappa John's and Florida Denny's are going to be able to cope without the threatened draconian acts toward their workers or hiking prices...

    I do like blaming a owner of multiple eateries failure to pay rent and damages to the building as President Obama's fault...

    Just how far to the right do you have to hold your head to the right to see it like that???

    So 2 companies out of the multitude of businesses in this country that caved to left wing political pressure means the rest of them should just shut up and deal with it? Just answer me this. Is Obamacare going to make it easier or harder to expand your business to more than 50 employees? Yes or No

    Your post is the poster child as to why Collectivism = Tyranny

    You mis-characterize/objectify real costs to business as "temper tantrums" in order to justify your philosophy that business is nothing more than a funding mechanism for a massive welfare state with centralized control. The only people with their head in the sand are hard left radical far left ideologues who don't care how badly Obamacare is having an impact on Economic Growth and Productivity, and who could care less how many businesses go under because of Obama's failed economic policies.

    You're actually laughing and joking that this company went out of business as our Economy just shrunk last quarter. Pretty sad, but it just shows the priorities of the radical left wing.

    And you continue to make stuff up instead of offering a substantive and factual post.

    Read what I wrote again. I never said I don't have any employees. Didn't say I did either.

    I've owned business is a variety including, but not limited to food services, finance, consumer goods, and others.

    And I've never had a problem complying with the law. Your posts suggest that you have. Maybe you could give an actual example of this, instead of arguing that it happens without giving one example of it actually happening.

    One doesn't have to be much of a businessperson to realize that those companies (and every other successful company) did what they determined would best serve their bottom line. Naturally, the party of personal responsibility wants to think that they are "caving". In the minds of those who don't understand business, a company is like a teenager giving in to peer pressure.

    Nice dodge, but your posts are here for all to see and you can't hide what you've said. The point being, if you don't have any employees you don't have a business (or business experience) that's relevent to the discussion at hand. IF you had employees and you cared for them one whit we wouldn't be having this disagreement.

    In other words, you don't know if I have any employees, or if I have hundreds.

    But don't let your ignorance of my businesses stop you from making stuff up about how I run my businesses. It's not like anyones' going to notice the dishonesty of your fictions.

    No, you're deliberately playing at misunderstanding to pull your ass out of a crack of your own making. Either way, employees or not, you're either touting irrelevent experience or just plain making **** up.

    Find a mirror and repeat the bolded part until you grasp the concepts. Btw, a business of one with no employees? Again, stuffing envelopes at home does not qualify you as knowledgeable regarding business.

    You still cannot post anything factual about my businesses or show that anything I said about them is not true, but I have proven that the statements you've made about my business could not have been honest statements.

    So I find it off (ie hysterically funny) that you would demand that I stop making **** up when I have made nothing up, while there is no doubt that you have



    Fins a mirror and reat the bolded part until you grasp the concepts. Btw, a business of one with no employees? Again, stuffing envelopes at home does not qualify you as knowledgeable regarding business.
    Your claim that a business with no employees can only be one that does nothing more than "stuffing envelopes at home" proves that your knowledge of the business world is not as great as mine. Consultants, real estate brokers, investors in the securities markets, and many others have made a great deal of money without employing anyone besides themselves.
