I'm in Detroit. Wayne County. The unemployment rate is 24%, last time I checked. My first pay cut happened in 2006. What does this have to do with Barack Obama? Do you expect any person could walk in and solve these problems in a year's time?
it could be the area. I know their business took a loss two years ago and they have recouped their entire loss, which was substantial. there is good out there, it depends on where your focus is, a lot of people want to blame Obama for everything bad. there is such a thing as personal responsibility and working hard to make something work. at least that's what my parents taught me and what I've taught my two sons.
When self-employed people can get reliable and affordable health care, you will see a groundswell of entrepreneurship in this country. Many people are enslaved by their jobs, because of the link to health insurance.
The job market will NOT be great after B.O.'s first term. We have built up too much debt and China just may want to get paid back. If unions keep getting their way more plants will close or move south.
Actually, Nelle Hoxie is correct. Many people are 'tied' to their job, because of their healthcare benefits, otherwise, they would leave and do something else. But, for the small business person- healthcare is too costly on an individual plan. Since, small business gets no breaks for offering healthcare to it's employees, it isn't able to.
There are some people who want to go into business for themselves, but don't want the healthcare costs to ruin the business, which it will, if small business persons are not helped. If help arrives, then a lot more people WILL go out on their own with a business, because then their business would be viable.
Harvey, there are people who actually equate personal responsibility with prosperity, taking initiative. the people that I personally know who are prospering now made their own wealth, they made it happen by working hard, dreaming ways of marketing bigger and better and taking accountability for their life. too many people want to blame the government for their problems. it's much easier that way... sit there and collect unemployment and point fingers.
tsk tsk.... pessimists... start a thread to bash Obama.
I have profited immensely from Obama’s policies. When I’m trying to stir up the rubes, there’s nothing like having an articulate black man in office with a Muslim sounding name to get the ball rolling.
It takes more than a year for an economy to pick up...even I know that... It takes time for things to work. I know you won't accept anything short of a miracle since you have often said you hate Obama.
There has to be a start somewhere. Even Obama says they will have a jobs summit. He knows his Stimulus has only driven up the debt, that didn't take years. You can't spend your way out of the problems he faced, history and economics will tell you this is NOT the way to do it.
I bet you made out like a fat rat the last 8 years with your Halibuton stock yea? Stop your whining and wait for the stimulus plan to actually kick in. In less than a year has taken on Health Care and saved us from a depression that your friends drove us into to improve your HALIBUTON STOCK. Why is he expected to fix something in less than a year, that took 8 years to create?
They just get guaranteed wages, guaranteed raises, guaranteed benefits, guaranteed vacations etc. If a guy on a line makes a mistake, there isn't usually a big problem. If an executive makes a mistake, the company may go out of business. can you equate the two?
Wow. I don't need to do some reading, actually, I just take a look around.
I will be sure to tell my friends, who volunteered for a lower salary, that they need to do some reading so they can understand that they are supposed to be DEMANDING more shiit. According to the anti-union guy.
Sorry I was mislead by the title of this BS thread, I thought we were going to have a conversation. My bad.
According to CNN and Fox News reports dated July 14, 2004, Attorney General Holder stated that there is opposition to him and President Obama because they are Black. Attorney General Holder maintained...
Is it not a little telling that it comes up at all? Questioning his nation of origin, and in other ways making reference to his race. It seems entirely irrelevant, though a person can definitely question many other...
President Obama again demonstrated his considerable ability to speak persuasively. His advocacy of his health care proposals was powerful and convincing, in my opinion. He explained the details of his proposals, the...
