    Hello, Detroit? This is DC. F****** Democrats are threatening to drive another nail in the ol' coffin. These a** clowns must be ghouls. Say, how do you like being six feet under, anyways? Hello? Detroit? _____________

    You must have been against Paul Ryan's VAT tax he proposed in his RoadMap for America's Future. The reason I bring up Ryan is because he is a conservative and I'm sure you are familiar with his business consumption tax. What exactly did you feel was robbing you from his plan? I'm curious.

    Sorry, but companies look to prevent losses... they're in business to make profits and employees are their largest cost. If someone forces you to raise the cost of employees... businesses react to prevent future losses.

    That means fewer hires, or putting them on part-time (sound familiar), or giving them the pink slip. It could mean raising prices... passing the cost on the consumer, but as we've seen with ObamaKare, companies choose to reduce the number of full-time workers.

    That's the cost of raising wages artificially.

    You see, only government gets to continue its idiocies when it fails.

    You should really try to run a business.

    Here... former presidential candidate McGovern was an economic illiterate too... have a read.

    George McGovern
    A Politician's Dream Is a Businessman's Nightmare

    Wisdom too often never comes, and so one ought not to reject it merely because it comes late.
    -- Justice Felix Frankfurter

    In 1988, I invested most of the earnings from this lecture circuit acquiring the leasehold on Connecticut's Stratford Inn... The Stratford Inn promised the realization of a longtime dream to own a combination hotel, restaurant and public conference facility -- complete with an experienced manager and staff.

    In retrospect, I wish I had known more about the hazards and difficulties of such a business, especially during a recession of the kind that hit New England just as I was acquiring the inn's 43-year leasehold. I also wish that during the years I was in public office, I had had this firsthand experience about the difficulties business people face every day.

    We intuitively know that to create job opportunities we need entrepreneurs who will risk their capital against an expected payoff. Too often, however, public policy does not consider whether we are choking off those opportunities.

    In services, however, consumers do have a choice when faced with higher prices. You may have to stay in a hotel while on vacation, but you can stay fewer days. You can eat in restaurants fewer times per month, or forgo a number of services from car washes to shoeshines. Every such decision eventually results in job losses for someone. And often these are the people without the skills to help themselves -- the people I've spent a lifetime trying to help.

    In short, "one-size-fits-all" rules for business ignore the reality of the marketplace.

    A personal note... a lot of what I do is assist companies become more lean in a specific industry. I know it well, and I have been all over the world doing this... but mainly in the EU and North America. In EU countries, due to the cost of labor... similar enterprises have to do with half... that's right... half or quarter the staff when compared to North America. If wages were lower, they would be capable of hiring more people. They cannot because they can't charge more to cover the enormous costs; it would price their services out of the range of the masses, and they would simply go out of business.

    His associations and decisions are PUBLIC RECORD. It's not my opinion against yours... its common fact v your opinion. Delusion is calling fact opinion then declaring your opinion the only one that counts... WINNER! You have provided NOTHING to support your position except to demand "proof" from me. I have provided the snowflake at the top of the iceberg.... you, nothing.

    How exactly is a president that starts a "preemptive" war, fundamentally changing our two century old philosophy of waging war, a moderate? Please... let's see if your "evidence" reaches the bar I've set. Every single person I've listed has been knee deep in the neocon machine for decades. It's public record. It's fact. They have all signed on to a sweeping, revolutionary (their words) manifesto calling for a PAX americana at all costs.

    Please... show me his moderate side... in your opinion.

    You didn't step on my toes, but don't come in here being dishonest. And there is no falsehood. Your conclusion that Bush is a Neocon because he has some around him is the same thing as calling Obama a domestic terrorist.

    Jeezus, you people are tedious. I didn't call him a neocon. Not saying he is a neocon. They wouldn't have that idiot. I said YOU ARE FACTUALLY WRONG. He was FAR RIGHT, not MODERATE. No neocon card holding needed.

    Actually it's not, Obama is working for the same people Bush is... get a grip! Obama hasn't spent 40 years working with the same cronies. He and his cronies didn't publish a manifesto which they all signed... THEY ARE FOLLOWING THE NEOCON ONE. To the letter. Yes, his choices for cabinet reflect poor choices and reveal his public theater lean... but unlike you, I'm not interested in theater. I'm interested in what is going on behind the curtain. You apparently don't even know there is a backstage.

    And... you still have yet to show ONE IOTA OF EVIDENCE TO SUPPORT YOUR OPINION.

    Epic fail mister...

    I revisited this thread after an absence and find garbage like this on a thread about Walmart and local DC politics. Do you do this on every thread on which you participate?

    And the only thing you've done to back up your claim is proclaim that he's surrounded by neocons.

    Come back when you have something relevant to back your claim.

    Yes. A VAT is a hidden tax no matter who proposes it. It is intended to conceal the tax. It is a deception program designed to fleece the greatest number of people.

    If you want to steal from me come face to face. I want to see the one who tries to rob me.

    Okay, then do you like a progressive tax system or a flat tax. Tell me what kind of system you like.
