Your post was offensive. You have decided that you can speak for me. Please refrain from assuming that you can speak for me in the future.


Holy Cow Mike,
Do you every apply what you say to yourself?

BTW --
If The President is the Executive Branch,
Then ALL problems belong to Congress.

MOST Americans realize this.

Obama 54% approval rate for his job,
Congress is at what?, 9%

"Yet liberals are fine with government (which does none of the work or takes any of the risks) getting a bigger piece of the pie than do the innovators."

And why not?

2bits..I'm sorry but that's just a dumb game you're playing. You open a taco stand and nobody comes and buys your tacos did you create a job (work that creates profits and income)? We could do this all day if the DN allowed it.

Here's the rest of your game. "If customers create jobs... Why does Obama blame business for NOT creating jobs??? He should blame customers... right?"

He does..he has claimed all along this was a demand driven recession and that unless we put money in the hands of consumers no jobs were going to be created. It's the whole theory behind the stimulus and government work.

If you have something to contribute, why not use your own words and your own ideas? Picking apart the ideas of others without contributing is something that happens in kindergarden. Somewhere in early junior high school, most people learn to stand on their own feet and they learn to present their own ideas.

You know what the Constitution says, but it appears that you will only stomp on the Constitution indirectly. Why not tell us why your version of the "perfect" Constitution is better? Why not "own" the content of your posts? Why not practice what you preach?

Anyone who actually owns a business could easily school you on why the government is impeding business growth and impeding the hiring of people. Maybe you actually own a business that produces a product for Americans. If you do, then tell us how you made it work, notwithstanding the taxes and regulations that have driven most businesses offshore. If you don't own a business, then your comments are fluff. Those of us who own businesses can see through "fluff".
