    Let's take two companies, both make cogs. One hires more workers at a loss of profit in response to Obama and one increases efficiancy and I have to go now tornado warning, bye

    You have every right to express your opinion. Just realize your opinion may not be shared by everyone. And just because YOU expect certain behavior of the business community, doesn't mean it has to or should be that way.

    lol... That's exactly what I thought. I was just reading along and suddenly, "Holy Crap!" That was by far the best conclusion to a post in this thread so far.

    Re: Obama Tells Companies to 'Step Up' and Hire Workers

    this absurd expectation by Obama tells me he is focused on but one job being retained


    he wasted his mandate
    at the time when he owned the white house the congress and the senate
    could have pushed thru immigration reform, expanded medicare to cover all citizens, eliminated anti gay provisions, and created a program where government was the employer of last resort ... critical to keeping the consumer economy growing
    but he did none of that when he had the opportunity

    now he faces the loss of his own job because of that obvious failure to timely act

    the only thing which will keep him in office is that the republicans can find no one to do any better
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it
    once you're over the hill you begin to pick up speed

    I haven't said anything that would even suggest I believe any of this.

    Like I said, they should hire more people when it won't harm the function of the company and its ability to grow.
    Perhaps in some sense of "should" you're right.
    But generally, businesses are run more conservatively than that.
    Rather than hire when it doesn't hurt them, they wait and hire when it actually helps them.


    A lot of businesses are set and ready to expand just as soon as there's demand enough to support the expansion.
    I may be wrong.

    I agree with this. I'm very aware of how most businesses tend to run and I'm only arguing in the "should" sense. My main point was to comment on the hypocrisy of some people in 1) Blaming Obama for unemployment without holding any corporations responsible. 2) Demanding other organizations/people change their behavior (unions and teachers for example) while not demanding the same of business.

    It went south of us, no rope on the ground. Got some video, hope it turns out of nice green skies and heavy rain. Didn't get a lot cause the cell was less the 2 miles from us and I have no sight line to my South East. I love weather, I love severe weather, don't much care to die being stupid cause of a rain wrapped tornado catching me off guard.

    All's good now.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    I can handle if just fine. You're talking political theory trying to apply it to private sector industry.

    I'm talking ethics and ideas about contributing to society and applying it to the private sector industry - this is a common application.
