    The US is the most powerful nation on earth. We have some of the largest and most profitable businesses in the world. I would call that business friendly. It won't stop companies from moving jobs to other countries to take adavantage of cheap labor though.

    BINGO!

    And the fact that your average American child has to go to school rather then work for half a cent an hour in a sweat shop is somehow "Obamas fault".

    Lack of regulation is the direct cause of the implosion of the financial sector from which we and our children's children will be suffering for a lifetime.
    Don't work out, work in.

    Government regulation costs businesses money. While I agree with common sense regulation, regulation for the sake of regulation isn't the answer.

    The implosion of the financial sector was caused by government pressure on loan companies to make risky loans.

    That is just not true. Loan companies made risky loans to make big profits. The government never forced anyone to make loans.

    How is it false? The government dropped Glass-Steigal, then forced banks to conform to the new regulations.

    BTW, I'm not Jesus; just a regular guy. I understand how you could get confused.

    It ain't gonna happen. They need those lies to rewrite history and if they say the lies long enough some people will start to believe them..
