To sell more widgets, I need my customers to have more money and more desire for widgets.

    I need the middle class to expand so that I have people to sell my services to. My paying an extra 3.5% top marginal tax rate is going to have no effect on that whatsoever.

    As a person in charge of hiring and firing, I can assure you that the real job creators are my customers.
    Well when I come out with a new product I hire people to mfr, market and distribute that product. I do and will continue to consider myself a job creator. I'm the one that spent the time, energy and money to make it happen, I'm not waiting for my customer to come and ask for more. I certainly agree the term is over used but we are not mythical and I'm not aware of anyone try to "appease" me. I must be spending too much time trying to get that target off my back.

    There is plenty of demand for energy and if the federal regulatory agencies would scale back their ridiculous rules, the producers could get to work satisfying that demand. The real problem is Obama spreading the wealth and misallocating our capital to fatten the wallets of his supporters. Obama seems to be taking his economic cues from Putin.

    We seem to to get into a loop here. fewer middle class jobs means less demand which means fewer jobs. I fail to see how higher taxes on anyone solves the problem. Throwing in more regulatory burdens doesn't help either.

    I need the middle class to expand so that I have people to sell my services to. My paying an extra 3.5% top marginal tax rate is going to have no effect on that whatsoever.
    I'm glad you have an extra 3.5% to throw around. Many of us do not. My main competition is overseas, another 3.5% to me is just another kick in the groin. I'd go along with it if I thought there was a chance it would help our fiscal situation, it will not. It will only result in new spending which will require more revenue which will require more taxes which will mean fewer jobs... I'd swear I've seen this movie before.

    Honestly, I don't see any reason to ban any of those words or phrases with the exception of YOLO since the majority of people that use the phrase are idiots.
