    So how does supporting business in China, Mexico, the government interest in the Ukraine and invasion by undocumented illegal mexican nationals across our border help the economy and create jobs for the amreican people? We can't get jobs in China, Mexico, or the Ukraine and India, so how does poverty oppression supporting international interest help the United States?

    Theses so called small business are band-aid argument as cottage industry motivated Americans as jobs have no hope of success an economic progress. Most don't even make enough money to pay their overhead and have to go on long term line of credit debt and borrow on this line of credit for an income and rents and equipment and supplies. In a world where mass production and high overhead are necessary for any start-up or existing business to keep their doors open makes it impossible for small business to last more then a few years of LOC.

    Small business in these economic stressful times are laughable and not hardly a benefit to the economy anymore. Beginning a small business during economic affluence is hard enough but in times of economic jobless failure its a losing battle.
