    Yeah, but did you learn anything from it? That's the real question.

    Where or where did I say that? Do you enjoy just making this up as you go along? Here is what I said is the motivation behind corporations from the post that you conveniently ignored

    The private sector cares about one thing and only one thing - maximizing their own profits. Hiring people does not figure into that goal if it is not necessary no matter how much money they keep, or how little they are regulated or anything else.


    Where in that was the charge of a conspiracy to sabotage the President?

    Why do you lie about what I write and then try to invent other stuff out of thin air?

    Re: They did it on purpose

    A loaded poll from a "very conservative" = no vote.
    Instead of using congressmen on this panel, a group of eleven men should have been selected for this task. Our congress is too poisoned with fools.
    Surely in our nation ,there are eleven intelligent people...I hope.

    that's a clear example of someone not hiring simply by choice, not due to undue regulations.
    I'm willing to say that this is the biggest lie ever !
    Even conservatives are not that stupid or fearful, are they ???

    the article is real, but it was posted by another member.

    http://www.11alive.com/news/article/...-Obama-is-gone

    WACO, Ga. -- A west Georgia business owner is stirring up controversy with signs he posted on his company's trucks, for all to see as the trucks roll up and down roads, highways and interstates:

    "New Company Policy: We are not hiring until Obama is gone."

    Eleven Libbos, too, I'm sure. Yes?

    A committee of non-elected people is not only idiotic--moreso than the whole super committee idea--but un-constitutional.

    tax cuts don't cost money. spending does.

    yeah.... sure ... whatever. And if I cut my income by 50% that does not impact my budget either.

    Where in the world did some on the far right learn basic addition and subtraction from?

    you are confusing terms deliberately.

    it does impact your budget,

    it does not cost you
