    Obama's no socialist, no not at all.

    Profits need to be shared with those for who the risk and investment are greatest, the shareholders.

    Obama seems to think Business exists to provide people with jobs. He just doesn't GET IT.
    Hell, why not just promote slavery? Why pay for labor at all?

    I think there are Americans who honestly believe that business owners don't need employees at all - which, of course, would mean there would be no customers to pay for their products and services, but nevermind that.

    Since when is NOT forcibly taking people's money, who already pay the lions share of taxes, considered "welfare"?

    You don't see that as disingenuous?

    I didnt miss it at all. Thats why I SAID that is what he was doing. Its not unlike speaking out against the war, then elevating and escalating. Or promising closure of GITMO and offering constitutional rights to terrorists then changing his mind and not only keeping open GITMO, denying newly captured individuals constitutional rights, but also opening a new black ops prison at Bilad. All he has to do is SAY the right things to make everyone feel all better. Thats what he is doing now.

    Why is it dishonesty flows with every post you make?
    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.

    That's not necessarily true. In this day and age, companies have to compete for qulity labor. Any company that treats quality employees like crap lose those employees to another company that will treat them better.

    There was a time in this country where people took pride in their jobs and in their work because the company took pride in their workers and their products.
    Those times ended, because there are too many people screaming that workers should get paid way more than their worth. The reason workers took pride in their work, was because they wanted to move up the ladder. Nowadays, they know that politicians will get them a raise and they don't have to perform for it.


    No one, including Obama is saying that companies and shareholder shouldn't make a profit...What Obama is saying is absolutely correct...we need to return to the time when American companies had a soul and actually reinvested some of the money the company made into the company and the workforce.
    That's true moreso today, than any other time in our history.

Shareholders will still get profits. And hopefully, more people will be employed with decent wages.
    Except, he didn't lower business taxes. They're the same as they have been for years. What's been lowered are business revenues. Since business revenues are lower, new hiring isn't going to take place and raises are going to become less frequent.

A call for not pushing US workers into a Chinese pay bracket is not over the top, it is a necessity. Though all in all, I must agree with Vance. Nothing will change and this was all political spin.
    There are literally millions of un-employed and under-employed people in this country that would love for a company to be making profits off their backs.
