    Issued yesterday, 10/19/11.

    So, once again, it begs the question - how can "jobs and the economy" be their mantra?

    Unless, of course, their goal is to ruin it.

    blah blah blah blah blah blah, same old same old rant about socialism, treason, Obamacare, communists, the media, Hollywood celebrities.......

    I, an American small business owner, part of the class that produces the vast majority of real, wealth producing jobs in this country, hereby resolve that I will not hire a single person until this war against business and my country is stopped.

    I hereby declare that my job creation potential is now ceased.

    “I’m on strike!”

    Reality is a job crisis - reality is 9% unemployment, reality is people losing their livelihoods, their homes, their cars, their health insurance. Reality is the Tea Party is calling upon their almighty "job creators" to deliberately withhold and destroy the jobs which would keep these people from losing their livelihoods, their homes, their cars and their health insurance in order to futher their own twisted agenda.

    That's Reality.

    The OWS have a large sign in NYC that reads "BAIL OUT THE PEOPLE" the best one I've seen and it was carried by a person that didn't look like they just crawled out of a drug den.

    SOMEBODY SHOULD TELL THAT PERSON TO TAKE THAT SIGN AND STAND IN FRONT OF THE WHITE HOUSE WITH IT, in fact, thats where this whole OWS movement belongs, in Washington.

    I am a small business ( super small ) and I will hire the second I feel I can make more money and grow my business becuase of it. I sure as **** not going to hire until I feel that way.

    I am motivated by profit. I enjoy making a profit which keeps a roof over my head, and food in my belly. I will not hire, or perform any action which may negatively effect my ability to make a profit.

    I hereby announce my intent to make a profit to my fellow citizens. My aim and goal is to make more money than I spend, and therefore save money which will give me the confidence to invest in the future. The more profit I can make, the faster, and more confident I feel in investing in the future.

    When will Bachmann sign this pledge? We all know she signs every pledge put in front of her. She is a self proclaimed; "job creator*."

    *In GOP speak, job creator = business owner. Even if those business owners have laid off people.

    Even if they sign a pledge vowing to become a job-witholder.

    Go figure.

    I guess they are another offshoot of the Tea Party. What is the official Tea Party website? Do they have one or are their hundreds of them around the Country?

    Ironically, your best chance at increasing your profits is if people have money to spend; the best chance that people have money to spend if there are jobs. Since Wall Street has already demonstrated their is no correlation between their profitability and jobs, then it makes sense to look to the government to implement policies that create jobs. Tax cuts and bailouts haven't worked.

    The best chance at increasing your profits is if you have a captive customer base i.e. federal government or subsidies. Just giving the people money doesn't increase profitability for Wall Street either.

    First, liberals are more for workfare than are conservatives. It's conservatives who favor the handouts: Handouts are cheaper. You don't need to have facilities, trainers, materials for work, benefits, and a pay rate that's superior to welfare. Workfare and job training is very expensive.

    Second, "just giving people money does increase the profitability of welfare enormously." Food stamps and welfare money directly or indirectly end up in the hands of the Wall Street. When the poor person goes to buy food, they are chances buying name-brand foods at a supermarket or, if they're dishonest, selling some of the foodstamps and using the cash to buy cigarettes.

    Well Obama and the radical left as represented at the OWS protest have declared war on small business and vilified them and demand higher taxes for them, so their response in rational until they stop being the focus of the hate campaign against them by the left.

    Can you provide a link showing that OWS has declared war on small business. I assume the link will be to the leader of OWS. My understanding of OWS is that it is representing a broad swath of people, including traditional liberals, union workers, Ron Paul supporters, and others. It is a rather leaderless grassroots campaign, sort of like the Tea Party was until the Koch Brothers bought them, and the Republicans co-opted them.

    Using your logic, if I find a tea partier who made a racist or homophobic comment is it fair to call the Tea Party racist or homophobic and radical right wing?

    They seems to be supporting Obama's billionaire tax which actually starts at 250k and would cover most small businesses. Don't forget Obamacare as a problem for small business

    If YOU have data that the OWS mob is not supporting the Obama proposal & obamacare, please feel free to provide a link.

    Why doesn't Aunt Zucchini work, from her pictures she looks like she could shovel snow and move pianos.

    Stop the Wars, imagine the money that could be saved.

    Obama Jug Ears just started another war.

    Why are billionaires like Teeth Pelosi allowed to serve in Congress, we all know what bastards billionaires are, the OWS are telling us everyday that people like Pelosi are no good?

    Why do we support 12 millliom illegal alien criminals?

    Democrats hate big banks and big business, why does President Jug Ears Bail Them Out?

    Why God.....:confused:

    MR PRSIDENT JUG EARS READ THIS
    "BAIL OUT THE PEOPLE"

    I see, so you're equating mainstream Democrat policies with this, and OWS with radicalism; therefore, the Democratic Party is radical. By the same logic, the Republican Party is racist and homophobic. Alternatively, OWS is not as radical as you thought.

    This is from Forbes, not a liberal publication, an article from January.

    More Small Businesses Offering Health Care To Employees Thanks To Obamacare - Forbes

    Because the tax cut created in the new health care reform law providing small businesses with an incentive to give health benefits to employees is working.

    ...

    How significant is the impact? While we won’t have full national numbers until small businesses file their 2010 tax returns this April, the anecdotal evidence is as meaningful as it is unexpected.

    United Health Group, Inc., the nation’s largest health insurer, added 75,000 new customers working in businesses with fewer than 50 employees.

    This event is being done on behalf of the Obama campaign. Yes that is what I think. Why aren't they encamped in front of the WH or congress?

    Unemployment is still over 9% many more have exhausted their benefits. Of course H Reid hasn't a clue:

    H Reid thinks the private sector is doing fine what a f'n moron.
