23% of Small Business Owners Went a Year Without Pay and Obama is Happy About It

Since 2010, I have not received a salary from the company where I’m the president and have worked for 31 years. My business partner, who is vice-president, also does not receive a salary. In addition, we’ve had to lay off a few people. My wife was the first to be let go. Thankfully, we have other jobs. We’ve used some of the profits from our successful businesses to help with the financial shortfall of our struggling company. Here’s what a report by Citibank found:

“Keeping businesses afloat has required sacrifices on the part of both employer and employees, the survey found. Over the past few years, business owners report that they have, at one time or another, taken less profit (78 percent), worked more hours than usual (70 percent), and used their own money to help the business survive (69 percent).

“But what is most revealing is that the majority of respondents — 54 percent — say they have gone without a paycheck in order to keep the business running. And nearly one-quarter (23 percent) have gone without pay for one year or more.

Employees, too, sacrificed finances for their employers. More than one-third of owners (38 percent) said their employees worked overtime without pay; 18 percent said employees either missed paychecks or had paychecks delayed.”

These numbers show that unemployment is higher than even the skewed official numbers are telling us. If these owners are not able to pay themselves, this means that there is a cash flow problem. When there’s a cash flow problem, there’s a downside to hiring, equipment purchasing, and company expansion.

It doesn’t help when you don’t know what’s coming down the pike from this administration. The president is skirting the law and autonomously creating his own law out of thin air. What will he do next? It’s anybody’s guess.

What are healthcare costs going to do? What about taxes? It’s the unknown that makes people fearful to take financial risks.

President Obama does not like American values. He resents American exceptionalism. It doesn’t matter if he was born in Kenya or Hawaii. He’s not an American at heart. But like all would be dictators, he wants to live above the rabble. So while he pushes for some form of economic parity among the common people, he will live far above them.

    Between taxes and healthcare, this may be the end of older small business owners ,who were thinking about retiring..I also know people who will leave the country if Obama gets four more years..What do you think will happen after that..Ask the 49 percent who get a check in the mail., some deserving because it was their money, they put in all these years, I do not consider that an entitlement..ask them who pays for that?? Go ahead and vote for a guy who wants to punish the private sector and spends like bankruptcy isn't coming down the pike..You will see your pensions and healthcare go away just like many of us have this year, in fear of Obamacare..The business owners will pay the fine, because it will be cheaper ,then the steep costs of paying extra so, so many can be covered for nothing..That's the plan and what they want..Socialized medicine..Never mind what they want to do to the dead..they pay 35 percent now when the Bush tax cuts expire that will be 55 percent..yep that's fair, taking over half of what someone accumulated their whole life..What exactly should the incentive be for anyone to earn money , for the government to take it from them and redistribute it to people who aren't even Americans..

      I'm 74 and (thankfully) still working. If bho is re-elected, this country is doomed, and I'm out of here for Uruguay. If Rick Perry decides to seceed texas, hope he remembers that Colorado was part of the Republic of Texas and comes to get us. All the red states need to leave and let the blue-state drones sink.

      • Walt

        The upside of seceesion is that we would no longer have to pay the national debt. That would be some other countries problem. I think Texas could do very well without the US; They have ports, shipping, railroads, farming, cattle, natural gas and other natural resources. Financially, it might be a good move.

        You will get a kick out of this it's an old email..
        THIS
        IS SO INCREDIBLY WELL PUT AND I CAN HARDLY BELIEVE IT'S BY A YOUNG PERSON, A
        STUDENT!!!
        WHATEVER
        HE RUNS FOR, I'LL VOTE FOR HIM.

        Dear
        American liberals, leftists, social progressives, socialists, Marxists and Obama
        supporters, et al:

        We have stuck together since the late 1950's for the
        sake of the kids, but the whole of this latest election process has made me
        realize that I want a divorce. I know
        we tolerated each other for many years for the sake of future generations, but
        sadly, this relationship has clearly run its course.

        Our two ideological
        sides of America cannot and will not ever agree on what is right for us all, so
        let's just end it on friendly terms. We can
        smile and chalk it up to irreconcilable differences and go our own
        way.

        Here is a model separation agreement:

        Our two
        groups can equitably divide up the country by landmass each taking a similar
        portion. That
        will be the difficult part, but I am sure our two
        sides can come to a friendly agreement. After
        that, it should be relatively easy! Our respective representatives can
        effortlessly divide other assets since both sides have such distinct and
        disparate tastes.

        We don't like redistributive taxes so you can keep
        them. You are
        welcome to the liberal judges and the ACLU. Since
        you hate guns and war, we'll take our firearms, the cops, the NRA and the
        military. We'll take the nasty, smelly oil industry and you can go with wind,
        solar and biodiesel. You can keep Oprah, Michael Moore and Rosie
        O'Donnell. You
        are, however, responsible for finding a bio-diesel vehicle big enough to move
        all three of them.

        We'll keep capitalism, greedy corporations,
        pharmaceutical companies, Wal-Mart and Wall Street. You can
        have your beloved lifelong welfare dwellers, food stamps, homeless, homeboys,
        hippies, druggies and illegal aliens. We'll
        keep the hot Alaskan hockey moms, greedy CEO's and rednecks. We'll
        keep the Bibles and give you NBC and Hollywood .

        You can make nice
        with Iran and Palestine and we'll retain the right to invade and hammer places
        that threaten us. You can
        have the peaceniks and war protesters. When
        our allies or our way of life are under assault, we'll help provide them
        security.

        We'll keep our Judeo-Christian values. You are
        welcome to Islam, Scientology, Humanism, political correctness and Shirley
        McClain. You can also have the U.N. but we will no longer be paying the
        bill.

        We'll keep the SUV's, pickup trucks and oversized luxury
        cars. You can
        take every Subaru station wagon you can find.

        You can give everyone
        healthcare if you can find any practicing doctors. We'll continue to believe
        healthcare is a luxury and not a right. We'll keep "The Battle Hymn of the
        Republic" and "The National Anthem." I'm
        sure you'll be happy to substitute "Imagine", "I'd Like to Teach the World to
        Sing", "Kum Ba Ya" or "We Are the World".

        We'll practice trickle down
        economics and you can continue to give trickle up poverty your best
        shot.

        Since
        it often so offends you, we'll keep our history, our name and our
        flag.

        Would you agree to this? If so,
        please pass it along to other like-minded liberal and conservative patriots and
        if you do not agree, just hit delete. In the
        spirit of friendly parting, I'll bet you can't answer which one of us will need
        whose help in 15 years.

        Sincerely,
        John J. Wall
        Law Student and an
        American

        P. S. Also,
        please take Ted Turner, Sean Penn, Martin Sheen, Barbara
        Streisand, & Jane Fonda with you.

        P. P. S. And you won't have
        to press 1 for English when you call our country.

          What is really funny about the people flooding into Texas, a lot of people moving there from california are government entitlement people looking for freebies because california is going broke, The great state of Texas passed a law saying that you have to be a resident for two years before you are qualified for any kind of government benefits. Kinda stops the welfare locousts from bleeding the state dry before moving on to newer grounds. ROFLMAO

        • deeme

          It makes you wonder why no one is running on this platform..I like to call it the blatantly obvious, I'm starting to think dividing this country up is going to be the only way to fix it..and we are pretty much divided right down the middle..One country would be poor and resemble a third World nation..the other quite prosperous and rid of all the things that hold it back..The strong will survive and in our World the truly poor , not the people with 100 dollar tennis shoes , will be helped by the same people who have always done it the best..holding up the needy not holding them back..Our World won't have a public sector , it will just have businesses..who have always done things the best ,through competition and ingenuity.

        That might be a cool idea, Mountain Man. Don't leave for Uruguay, tho, we need people like you to stay here. The libs are so closed in their mindset and so propped up by egotism and biased media that they forget there are way more Conservatives,Republicans, and Independents in the country than they realize. Looking at a red and blue colored U.S. map, it becomes so evident. We can outvote them if we are able to keep it honest (not an easy task), keep collecting campaign funds, and work as one big team against Socialism, Chicago politics, people like Soros, the nanny state, and government bloated policies/ridiculous spending. We need to get every single one of our eligible voters out and band together as one team to secure this election, or I want to move to Texas, too. Everyone reading today's Godfather post, remember to participate actively and do all you can to stop a loss in November. Don't wait around for someone else to do it, or you'll have nobody to blame but yourself. Remember 2008 and learn from what's happened. No more chances or extensions. Enough is Enough. God Bless America.

    Short response.. as it's late and I'm tired... but you're right. We're doomed. Seriously. Obama does anything he wants and nobody in congress or media does anything about it. He could literally perform an after-birth abortion (aka baby murder) at a press conference and it wouldn't be covered by the lamestream media (and if it was, they'd be condemning those that objected, claiming they were intolerant and discriminating against baby murderers who have the right to kill babies for any reason, inclluding the gender of the baby!!!)

    Our entire congress and president should be led in shackles to death chambers.. for treason and aiding and abetting. They really do deserve it. Pathetic spineless SOBs.

      Go Tea Party!

      • GrouchyGaijin2

        I am from the US but now live in Sweden and am amazed and how well the media has been able to paint the Tea Party as a bunch of anti-democratic, right wing xenophobic racists. Almost everyone I know here is truly afraid of the Tea Party. The seem to think the Tea Party is another name for the Klan.
        It's gotten to the point that I don't even try to explain the actual situation any more. When I do, I see their eyes gloss over and a sense of confusion set it. In some ways you can't blame them - the are going by reports from CNN and the NY Times. FOX News isn't available on cable here, although CNN and Al Jazera (spelling?) are.

        Go Tea Party! Keep the faith brothers!

        • RogueWarrior_6

          Grouchy, I can certainly appreciate your convictions and continued efforts in attempt to explain the fundamentals of our Tea Party to a group of people that have been convinced the Tea Party is bad. I too suffer the same problem with my wife's family. As I'm white and she's black, and her family lives in Alabama. Generations of her family have, and still rely on the Federal Government for their livelihood.
          But I refuse to just stand idly by and watch her family somehow believe their entitlement mentality will change the living conditions of future family members. I will continue to provide facts to prove it's their continued entitlement mentality that will be the demise of future generations... and until they begin to break that cycle of need for help, and realize that real help must come from within and empowering each of them with a since of worth.
          Continue the good fight, and don't give up or give in!! Although silence might seem the best answer sometimes, it's also exactly what the LEFT wants..

          Grouchy & Rogue,
          You've got it exactly right. We let the left define the language and got "gay" meant alternative lifestyle, it's a crime to say anything having to do with war or target hunting, and they can say what they want but we're rascist to say anything not on the side of the first black & white president. Now they've taken the TEA PARTY which is as American as you can get, and made it into being a rabid anti-everything nazi. If we keep on Free speech won't even be something we're allowed to whisper about in darkened corners because drones can be made small enough to fly in windows. It has to stop somewhere if that's what's required for America, we'd better be willing to make the same pledge as the signers of that Declaration years ago!

          Being an American living in Sweden, does not change your mindset.....you will always think like you did, and to try and convince other Swedes as myself, you are flogging a dead horse. However Fox News is available if you have satellite, however AlJazera and Russia Today are reliable sources for news about the USA, that Americans never ever see for themselves

        • GrouchyGaijin2

          Really, I didn't know that we could get FOX News on satellite. Do you know which company offers it? We have Tele2 Cable now. As far as Russia Today, I really have to disagree. Everything I've seen on the net from them has been 100% propaganda.

        • fridihem

          Hi, There is not a Swedish company that offers FOX as far as I know, I have a 1.8m dish, had it since 1986, changed the LNB a few time, but i can sweep across the sky and get in almost all the birds up there, 1000s of stations, from Thailand to parts of S America, but nothing from the USA, too far away, and anyway their birds are only looking at the USA. Russia today, one does have to take their shows with tongue in cheek, but then again, American stations are very biased as well, so its 6 and 2, 3s

        • GrouchyGaijin2

          So do I understand correctly that although you said in your first reply that FOX is available in Sweden via satellite, you go on to say in your second post that it is actually not available in Sweden?

          Also, it seems that in your first reply you say that Russia Today is a good source of information, then in your second post you seem to say that in fact they are not and one needs to take their shows with tongue in cheek?

        • fridihem

          Fox News is not in any of the Swedish companies that supply TV, you will need to use a satellite dish a search after it on different transponders, it could well be on SkyBSB in the UK, not often I watch Sky programs.........

          The good thing is that the Tea Party is not a party; nor an organization. It has no leader that the left can destroy thereby destroying the Tea Party. It is an idea of small, constitutional government that has spread to small groups and individuals across this nation and its alive and well. The left can't isolate and destroy an idea and that is why they hate it so much. Thank god for the Tea Party!

        • ConfusedAmericanCitizen

          And yet I got an email today offering me an 'elite' membership to a Tea Party group. I get pretty edgy when when people want to 'organize' us into an elite group of 'members'. We are a movement and no one gets to exploit it so that they can have an 'elite' group of members. I'm sure that these people are true and mean well but we need to remember who we are and what strengths we gain by staying that way.

If we are to educate the masses we can no longer use the Republicans ploy of looking down our noses at people. In 1962 when I joined the Goldwater team we were taught first to simply look folks in the eye and sincerely tell them what our plan is and most of all WHY we had this plan. When people know the WHY they will break walls down to get the results. Unlike a certain ADV> on TV. HOW is never the proper question for anything...It will always be WHY..Every one keep up the good work explaining the WHY.

        • ConfusedAmericanCitizen

          I do understand that we need to fund the movement, and I will and do. But, my beef is with the idea of 'becoming' an elite member of the group by donating. That's not what this is all about and this is not the way to fund the wave......We don't need anymore elitists and Tea Party people are not into that!

        • Poppo

          I agree with you. Use of a gimmick is nothing new in politics, particularly when they are raising money. I get e-mails from half a dozen Tea Parties, and none of them have asked me to be an 'elite', though all of them suggest that I donate money. I financially support a few of those.

        • ConfusedAmericanCitizen

          I believe that the folks at this Tea Party sect are our brothers and sisters in this great and necessary cause and I applaud their part of the movement. However, TeaPartiers have had to make sure that we self police this movement in order to keep it moving in the right direction and keep us above reproach. That is what I was trying to do by calling them out on this. This is how we were able to gather in mass and not give the opposition ammunition against us and how that same opposition could not prove their lies when they made up stuff. We need to stand together, defend each other and work with each other, donating and backing all we can, but we still need to self police. Encouraging the creation of an 'elite' task force, I feel is out of line.

There should not be a name put on the people that love the constitution and will fight to keep it other than real americans. The real americans are called to their assignment as the constitution declares and fight against the enemies foreign or domestic of the republic such as our government who is in bed with the left wing socialist/communist/islam.

          You're exactly right. They've tried to attach the tea party to prominent Republicans, but it just hasn't worked. People think the tea party is dying because they don't have the rallies like they used to, but in fact, they're stronger and more influential than ever. They've succeeded in taking our RINOs like Richard Lugar, whom everyone thought had a safe seat. No one in Congress is safe at this point. I think that's why Snowe is not seeking re-election. She was a major tea party target and she knew it.

          That is a good question. I've been here three years and finally feel like I've got a decent grip on the language, so I can't speak for the general population, however, most people I know seem to think that OWS is great.

          That really isn't surprising though considering the Swedes I've met are without a doubt among the laziest people on earth. The national motto seems to be "That isn't my job."

          Based on people I know, the idea of sitting home and playing video games while someone else actually works so you can receive your government check is viewed as an acceptable life style choice. Just to give an example, last year the heaters in our apartment complex were replaced. Eight guys showed up, six stood around while two guys did all the work. (That is not an exaggeration.) This operation, in just our apartment, took five days. They showed up at 7:30 AM and left at around 4:00 PM everyday Monday through Friday. They only seemed to hurry when it was time for the, what I am sure is a union mandated, coffee break.

          I suppose in the newsclips of tea party meetings, the cameras omit the black speakers, or when panning the crowds, eliminate the shots of the many black attendees. With only 13% of the American population being black, I think you'll find that ratio wise, the number of blacks and whites is just about equal.

        • GrouchyGaijin2

          I don't think they even think that deeply about it. Swedes seem to really like big government and the entire idea of a movement with small government at it's core strikes them as horrifying. When you combine that with the liberals in the US making unsubstantiated charges of racism against the Tea Party then it's easy to just take that at face value and jump to the conclusion that it is a bunch of klansmen drinking tea.

          Even Fox News doesn't give the tea party the credit and coverage it
          deserves. People need to access conservative talk radio. Mark Levin is
          a conservative Constitutional attorney and I rely on people like him

          That's so sad. We have a group of American loving, loyal patriots who only want the best for this country, and they're painted as evil racists who want to destroy the country they're trying to save. The media and progressives have so much to answer for...but we'll get the last laugh. We're going to take back the Senate and the WH.

        • jude

          I've been to Tea Party events. It's the objectors from the outside that come to the Tea Party events and cause the problems. They come with their group of profanity shouters, make a lot of noise, sometimes throw things, trying to cause fights, just cause havoc and try to make it look like it is the Tea Party doing all the bad stuff. They bring with them the press and TV and that's how they make it look like they want...no good of course. It propaganda at best and it's just like Russia. We have a lot of sick people here in America. We're going to the "dogs". I have not seen any president like the one we have, an usurper, destroyer of truth. I thought Carter was bad, but this one has him beat over a 1000 times or more. It really boils down to the fight of Satan and God. We all know who's going to win eventually. Praise the Almighty Lord for that! I pray that he watches over his people, guards and protects us. And if you have faith, please pray for us as well.

        Right now, the Tea Party is the only group that can save America.

      • Make_Miracles

        The Tea Party is the grasss roots, besides other individual states that hold truth to our Constitution who have additional grass root movements as well. Peaceful, yet organized to bring education, resources, and candidates to open rallys and meetings, it's the only group that offers all of the above to whoever wishes to know our government, politicians, candidates, and Constitution. Thank goodness they were organizing in my area as I knew Obamacare would be tragic for a family member, who had a (mis-diagnosed) head injury. In my passion to know Obamacare, I began accessing information and going to a well-known physician who read the whole over 2,000 page mess and speaks against it as Facism. This family member would have been denied re-admission to a hospital and care. Obamacare would have "arranged" his death. Of course the 16,000 panel is not directly in Obamacare. Sly fox Obama, Reid, and Pelosi put it in the Stimulus. That's right! Fortunately for this member not to be subjected to this travesty, he has since passed away.

        I read, study, and research, and have gone back to re-study our history. Strange what I found missing even when I was a student signficant time ago. Every American must read Obama's biography. He admits much in Dreams from my Father. Don't buy it, just sit in a book store and read it. There is no excuse for any true American to not research the real Barack Hussein (Berry) Obama. He chose to surround himself with the most radical people in college and Marxist professors.

        Urged by this physician for this average American, now activist to speak on Obamacare, I formed a committe of a medical professional and business owner. Barack Obama does not use congress, our constitution or care about illegal anyone or gay marriage, It's his way of getting votes to assure his re-election to finish off America as an Imperialist Socialist.

        He's broken nearly every Constitutional law of treason, abuse of executive powers, and our laws. He's been said to be worse than Watergate and I agree. Obamacare has already began more assertively. come 2013, the pace will come faster and by 2014 (if this isn't repealed completely) America will be gone and all military who fought, injured, or died in wars on our soil and abroad for freedom will be in vaid. Look to Europe folks, That will be us. Those who love the fake everything of Obama and will give away America are either selectively stupid, ignorant, or Socialists.

        Grass Root groups like the Tea Party and others are this country's hope for the constitutional future. Composed of God loving and Constitutional patriots, are our great seniors, middle aged group, and younger folks who refuse to be indoctrinated to Socialism/Marxism. How did someone like this get to our White House (not his as he calls it). He lied and the American people bought it. Shame on that.

          Or Cornyn, who just this past week told holder to his face that if he can't be honest or do things constitutionally, he needs to resign as attorney general. (When holder is gone, I'll again capitalize attorney general).

          Exactly. We have some very good people up there - just not enough of them. They're a little like the men who stood on the wall in the Alamo. Santa Anna (the libs and their willing accomplices in the media) have them surrounded right now, and often do their best to drown out any news that reports on their positive activities. We need to send more conservatives to back them up, bolster their numbers, and increase the sound of their collective voice.

          There are a few who are starting to listen to their constituents. Since the Tea Party has blown away several incumbents over the past couple of years, they're starting to realize they better start listening. NONE of them are perfect, but we have too many dead weights in there. I want Boehner OUT next time he's up for re-election. He's nothing but all talk. Congress should have filed impeachment charges the minute Obama put our military UNDER NATO commanders, sent them into Libya, all without Congress' consent. Plus Holder should have been indicted at least a year ago, instead of giving him more time to bury MORE info.

No President forced the White House staff to leave their families on Christmas to go with the President to Hawaii at tax payer expense. Most Presidents celebrated Christmas in the white House so their families could be home after hours. No president ever had to pay lawyers millions of dollars to cover his past. He is the first President to make marriage between a man and woman almost illegal. No President ever burned an American flag and laughed about it, and no President ever stood idly by with a bored look (and refused to place his hand over his heart) while the National Anthem was played..There is not enough space here to go into more detail about this pernicious narcissist..But he can't be all bad huh???

For a couple who is not proud of America and cannot respect our nation's capitalistic way of life, they certainly do not mind taking part in the spoils in a big way when it is in their own interest!

          Don't take anything fridihem says seriously - he contradicts himself. He told me we could get FOX news on satellite only to say later, we really can't from any company in Sweden, but perhaps and he admitted he really didn't know, we might be able to get it from a UK satellite. In the same two posts he first advocated Russia Today as a good source of information then turned around to say they really aren't a good source of information and that their reporting needs to be taken tongue in cheek.
          I think he made a mistake with the English there and meant to say a grain of salt.

          He is just upset because he comes from a country that is really very insignificant - Sweden.

      • jjinfl

        Sorry, fridihem, I have to disagree with you. Imo, some presidents lived a much more moderate existence while in office, particularly in the areas of hanging out with Hollywood folks, failing to control governmental and personal spending, hosting expensive dinners and holiday extravaganzas in the White House; bringing in celebrity entertainers and rappers as their guests; attempting to act like other non-celebs like Kardashians when it comes to lavish parties; entertaining at Clooney's hugely outlandish gala and collecting big checks to "look at" or shake hands with Obama; the first lady presenting at a national awards ceremony wearing a skin-tight silver spacewoman-looking leotard and spangled tights, or repeatedly zooming off in their presidential jets with family, friends, and minions to exotic venues way too often. This couple needs to moderate its high-life style while the rest of us are hurting for jobs and barely making it from month to month because of the economy. Please don't come back with "jealousy". I wouldn't never choose to live their way.

        • fridihem

          Actually, you could use any Presidents name in your statement, and it would apply to them as well, travels, parties, if I remember right, Baby Bush used AF1 more than what Obama has........just saying

        • jjinfl

          Hi fridihem, I think sometimes they move these posts around even before they get in a permanent place; you have several posts here and there, but I believe the one where I disagreed with you is now two places above this message. And I stand firm on what I said. Name one, just one, first lady who would have brought disrespect to herself and her position by appearing in front of tv cameras, a huge audience, and paparazzi presenting a national award in a silver spangled skin tight spacesuit! That one thing really speaks volumes...and the statement on who used the jet more, Bush or Obama. I don't think you really vetted this statement completely, or compared the distances and destinations. Bush spent lots of vaca time at his own ranch to seek some downtime with family rather than constantly being on the campaign trail trying to pocket the checks of Hollywood celebs. I'm not holding Bush up as an all time example, but I don't think there's another presidential couple in history who ever sought the big time entertainment lifestyle or overspent the way the Obamas have. I also believe that just because "other people did this too!" is not a valid excuse to keep on doing something that it just not right. You certainly have a right to your opinion, however.

          Hi Clyde, Don't worry about the rather negative comment about your post here. It is the thought that counts, and you should be allowed to express your opinion as best you can. This is not an English grammar class. You are right in what you said, imo.

        Hey wiseguy! I beg your pardon, I am well educated having a degree in Aerospace Technology! I am also retired military and have done my fair share for this country! I am far from being stupid! What have you ever done for this country other than put it down? I sense you must be a socialist democrat with liberal tendencies! They all do use these things with amenities but, when the country is down and out, a responsible President would be more modest and discrete about everything! Especially during election time, well yet again its Obama, the most inexperience person in the room! He plays more golf than Tiger Woods, and he isn't even good at it! I also heard that he sucks at basketball as well! You go on thinking King Obama is your Lord and Savoir! Wait until November! One way or another, he is going to be out of office! Either by voting him out or by impeachment! He is done!

    He will end as all dictators do if he's able to steal the 2012 election. Maybe as an old man, maybe as a young man. Someone or some group will pull him from a hole in the ground or storm the palace at some point. It happens every time.

  • ms galt

    My late ex-husband went bonkers because of these type of difficulties of doing business - Obama is just a would-be tin horn dictator - out to deprive everyone he thinks is below him of their livlihood so he can live high on the hog. George Soros, one of his enablers got his money by destroying other people's finances - these people know nothing of real work or real sacrifice - they will destroy anyone they perceive is in their way. These truths have to get out to voters - legal and illegal - because they are being given goodies to lull them to vote - if he wins again this very well could be the last Presidential election ever.

    American exceptionalism is founded in Jesus, and the founding fathers used scripture to formulate the constitution, if Jesus is gone then there is no American exceptionalism it is gone along with Jesus.
    Without Jesus America is just another country, and in fact less than many other country we are in the bottom half of many educational skills, countries in Math, science, knowledge and skills of 15-year-olds in 70 countries around the world, ranked the United States 14th out of 34 OECD countries for reading skills, 17th for science and a below-average 25th for mathematics.
    The USA has nothing outside of Jesus that makes them exceptional, when prayer left the class room so did exceptionalism.

    Obama is not an American in his heart and that's fine by him. He hates this country, the people, the laws, the customs, the economic system. If Congress does not push back on his usurpation of their duties, I cannot imagine what kind of country we will have next week. Obama is playing a game. He's pretty sure he can make racist hay out of any opposition to his giving away our nation to those who break the law, steal our jobs and take up space in our schools and colleges at the expense of the tax payer. He has Hollywood on his side to make his case on film; he has the judges to fulfill his Leftist agenda; he has the Senate of the United States to do his bidding--sick stards that they are. This is going to be the ugliest election in our nation's history, bar none, including 1860. The soul of the nation is at stake. We must defeat this dictator.

    Why does the congress just sit on its hands while this man usurps more and more power , he has become a Dictator without anyone or anything even trying to stop him. The constitution and the limits put on his office mean nothing, Congress has no purpose any longer so why do we keep paying them the big money?

    • makrov

      The problem is if the house brings up the impeachment then the senate
      votes on it and with Reid in charge it will never come to vote just like
      the more than 35 bills from the house that he knows will pass so he
      does NOT bring them to a vote because he doesn't want them to pass

      • steveni

        Right! They need to focus on the economy and not waste time on something that will not succeed. Unlike the Democrat Congress that had their political, witch hunt when they went after the Oil Companies during the later Bush years. What came out of that? Nothing.

    The problem with ALL of the US presidents, from the very first, is that none of them had any connection to the man and woman on the street. They were all born with a silver spoon, some even had golden spoons in their mounths when born, they never grew up amongst the other 99.9% of US citizens, never knew what it was like to have to queue for a loaf of bread, or work in the fields or a factory..............their life was a constant round of cocktail parties, yatchs, expensive cars, long holidays abroad..........never ever had to wonder where the next $ would come from, for them it was just spend, spend, spend...........and it WAS YOUR MONEY they were spending.................and now you want another nancy boy.......MITT.......to be your next Pressi..................and do you really think it will change things, if you do then you are just naive morons

To say all of our presidents have come from wealthy families is wrong also, do some homework before throwing out blanket statements like that, it makes you look stupid.

    In chapter 25~~The Repugnant Obama Paradigm~~p. 289 ff of my book, Flirting with Misadventures, http://www.flirtingwithmisadventures.com/orderthebook.htm where I concluded on page 292,
    “. . . every facet of the Obama agenda has the guaranteed effect of undermining the principles which serve as the foundation of Americanism, the vaunted last best hope of mankind on earth.
    In the process of redistributing wealth, no amount of benevolence and good intentions can compensate for the brutal reality that spreading the wealth around, reduces the total wealth, and eventually simply leaves you with exactly nothing to redistribute. Herein resonates with frightening alacrity the repugnance of the paradigm that most appropriately describes President Barack Hussein Obama, who just also happens to be my President.”

    This is just one of the indicators, that he was brought up in a anti-American Communist way. Since when has he ever ran a business and had to meet a payroll. Everything he ever got was just handed to him. He wasn't even born with a silver spoon in his mouth. It was just given to him. So he has no qualms about handing out money with out worrying where it came from or if there will be enough of it to go around. He's just like a trust fund case who just spends, spends, spends. Why should we expect anything else from this would be dictator?

    What really amazes me is the amount of people still behind him and can't even give you a good reason other then he's the Democrats choice (???).
    I really believe if the Democrats ran Charles Manson as the party choice these Moron Democrat voters would elect him into office just because he was their party choice.
    Under Obama we'll be lucky is we still have a nation to be proud of seeing as they want to change our National Anthem, Do away with the Pledge Of Alleglance to our flag and change the face of our flag.
    We all seen the Arrogance of Obama when they flew a American Flag with his picture replacing the stars within the blue section of the flag but suprised me is the lack of the Communist insignia with his picture.
    May God Bless America and I don't care who get's offended by that statement including Obama!

  • Rustytruck

    I don't understand why nobody and I mean nobody, not even our politicians will stand up and slap cuffs on Obama for breaking the law. Screw the birth certificate, he's breaking the law every day and not one person will do something about it. I wish I would've gotten into Politics at a younger age and with God as my witness, I would walk into the WhiteHouse with a Military attachment and cuff the slob. Political future be damned, he's undermining every asset of our country, why won't smoebody with some authority lock him up? Mitt Romney, Ron Paul, our Generals, Admirals, DoD, somebody, anybody. What's it going to take to get somebody to show some American backbone? Instead of complaining about it, force his hand into a court room. Once he's in there, it would be obvious to any judge he's broken almost every law he's come in contact with. I think the only thing that's going to get him out is another Revolution and from what everyone says we are all ready for it. 230 years later and we have to do it again because of some liberal Democratic puke who stole the election.

    I cannot believe the American public is still taken in by this fake, money hungry destroyer of our country. My husband a small business owner who had planned to retire must now work forever. He had a client buildup of over 150 companies and that is down to about 10. The phoniness of the man we call president is beyond me. having worked in the medical business for years one could judge the patient who was using the system. It did not take long for many of us to note not to vote for this man. the hollywood crowd who make billions live high still follow the pattern. the unemployed will vote for him as he is giving them longevity in their benefits. the poor black know no other way of working but using the government for their savior. I am disgusted and though not a religious person pray that we rid ourselves of the present administration to get our country back.

      Anne - there are many, many more who are with you in your thinking. Sorry about the deterioration of your husband's business... too many stories like that and, yet, our government does nothing to stop the continuing destruction of the system which has worked so well for us for so many years. We MUST stay vigilant and protest against the increasing wrongs being committed by those who are being paid to PROTECT us!

    Please remember this headline,

    "23% of Small Business Owners Went a Year Without Pay," when you read about 49% of Americans not paying income taxes. It's not necessarily people who are lazy and collecting government handouts.

    THE FALL
    By Sheriff Jim R. Schwiesow, Ret.
    May 16, 2012

    One can liken the days leading up to the pending collapse of this nation to an appointment with an endodontic for a root canal procedure, the time unto the appointment seemingly lapses with unnerving quickness while the horrific hour and a half in the chair grinds by for an ostensible eternity. Thus it is in regard to the final days of this nation that slip swiftly by in a run up to the pure hell that awaits; an ultimate frantic, terrifying, gut wrenching fall of a once proud republic.
    “And I will dash them one against each other, the fathers and the sons, says the Lord. I will not pity or spare or have compassion, that I should not destroy them.” - Jeremiah 13:14

    In the jagged ignorant minds of a lost people those terminal days will grind by in interminable agony. It will be a hell of a secular humanist making and a just retribution for the evolutionists, atheists, agnostics, sodomites, socialists, communists, and progressives who thumbed their noses at Almighty God and held His name in derision.
    One can imagine that these dimwits will have in the last desperate days the boldness and unmitigated effrontery to invoke His name for delivery from the elements of destruction, but it will not be in sack cloth and ashes and with abject repentant humility that they approach, but for self preservation and a hope for a continued irreverent existence. Their arrogance will persist unto the final minute of the final hour of the final day, and then the end. Perhaps they will believe their god Obama and his demonic minions will save them; since by all appearances they revere him above the God of creation.
    MAKING READY FOR THE INEVITABLE.....
    It would seem that - if recent reports are to be believed and by all documented evidence they seem to be accurate - this goofy, Godless, perverted and demonic government is preparing for a nation-wide rebellion. They are laying up untold millions of rounds of firearms ammunition, millions of dehydrated meals, preparing shelters for the elite, internment camps for political dissidents, and training the military for posse comitatus status and for a carrying out of a rectifying indoctrination curriculum for political activists.
    The ammunition is presumably for the killing of those in active rebellion, the food to keep the elites alive in their cushy shelters, the camps to warehouse and torment dissenters and objectors, and the indoctrination curriculum to inflict physical and mental suffering upon those whom they believe to be contentious heretical foes of the demonic system. It is a chapter straight out of the George Orwell novel “1984”

    In the Watts riot, which was a spit in the ocean compared to what will come; the police abdicated control to the rioters and were nowhere to be found. They hung around the edges of the conflagration in a cowardly cringe. And in the aftermath of the New Orleans hurricane debacle a major portion of the police force deserted and abandoned their posts and responsibilities. Some even joined in the looting; so much for local law enforcement, what about the military?

    When this thing goes nationwide the troops - that are already on the verge of rebellion due to their egregiously ill treatment during and after service, their subjection to stupid leadership, and for being used as cannon fodder in the infernal pits of the world - will desert. Government revenues will dry up completely, the cowardly politicians and bureaucrats will run for the hills and hide in order to keep from being strung up by their heels like Mussolini; and murdering and marauding scum will control the environs nationwide.
    One would think that it would be hard, if not impossible, to be prepared for something such as that...however the fact is that Obama has in reality accelerated a movement toward total anarchy to the point that this truly appears to be his ultimate goal. The only explanation seems to be that he has made clandestine deals with the internationalists for the insertion of foreign troops to quell the insurrection in the name of international order and to impose an exercising authority by a world government collective.
    We know from his sotto voice conversation with Russian president Dmitry Medvedev before an open mike that he promised to, when re-elected, dismantle U.S. missile defenses and leave the nation vulnerable to the belligerency of foreign enemies. He seems to be smugly counting his chickens in regard to a re-election, what does he know that we don’t? For an imbecile who has royally screwed up everything that he has turned his hand to during his illegitimate presidency he seems to be supremely confident…too confident to my way of thinking. In the words of that old Shakespearean quote: Something is rotten in the state of Denmark.
    “Man is certainly stark mad. He cannot even make a worm, and yet he will be making gods by the dozens” - Montaigne
    I continue to hear the propagandist media yammering about the importance of the Independent vote and its effect upon the upcoming election. The truth is that there is no such being as a politically non-partisan independent; all who vote are possessed of an ingrained ideology that is an intimate part of their psyche. The fact is that in a pig-sty society such as ours the majority has been indoctrinated to a progressive persuasion.

    Presently progressive zealots comprise ninety-nine point nine percent of the Democrat Party, the remaining one tenth of one percent are no less progressive, but possess a smidge less fanaticism.
    The Republican Party membership is constituted of a three way division; roughly one third of those under the Republican banner are proximate no principle progressives - of a Mitt Romney variety - who proudly call themselves moderates, one quarter are genuine realistic conservatives, and the remaining forty-odd percent are bomb-throwing neocons. It is these who control the party apparatus and light the torch for a thousand points of light internationalism.
    The chief claim to fame of these is that they have kept the United States embroiled in a series of guerilla wars ostensibly to democratize the world. It is a completely nescient belief which maintains that democracy will save the world; as exactly the opposite is the truth.
    The promulgated conjecture that a united international composite, making binding decrees upon diverse peoples, will deliver a world-wide utopia is hogwash. If such were the case God would have let Noah's descendants build that tower instead of confusing their language and scattering them to the winds.
    What the bomb-throwers have accomplished is to destroy and maim millions of non-combatants, condemn some of our best young people to life-long debilities or a violent premature death, and contributed to a crushing national debt through monumental military expenditures. And all for what; they can point to no absolute victories, no middle-east stability, and no lasting peace. It was all for naught, and a very expensive all for naught.
    I have been rather pitiless here in regard to the language I have used to describe a less than illustrious political leadership, but to call a court jester a prince would be to play cavalier with the truth.
    BUILDING SODDOM & GOMORRAH
    Many may remember Judge Robert Bork who, as a nominee to the Supreme Court, was pilloried by one of the most egregiously scurrilous personal assaults on an honorable man to ever be recorded; this by a Democrat Senate in 1987 whose integrity deficient members completely abandoned any semblance of decorum and grace with their despicable character assassination.
    Subsequent to being politically destroyed by those of infinitely less quality and worth than he Judge Bork wrote a book entitled, “Slouching to Gomorrah”; indeed this scholarly work by the learned constitutionalist highlighted the damage done to the constitutional foundations of the nation by a radical embracement by modern liberals of egalitarianism.
    This doctrine - liberals believe - mandates a classless society, in other words an absolute political, economic, and social equality of the masses. In such a desirable environment, according to progressive theology, there must be no constitutional impediments to individual desires; a belief that has led to the long list of vices and social deviancies that have delivered the nation unto an evil wickedness that a righteous and holy God cannot possibly ignore.
    OBAMA BLESSES SAME SEX MARRIAGE...........
    “If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.” - Leviticus 20:13
    Barack Hussein Obama has gone a long way in giving credence to those whispered rumors in regard to his bathhouse club days in Chicago. We may never know his secret sexual preferences, but we do know that he has given his personal and official stamp of approval on the deviant sexual practice of sodomy. One has to believe that he assumes that the majority of our society approves and condones such a filthy deviant life style or he wouldn’t have been so bold prior to Election Day. And he is I believe correct in his assumption.
    THE PEOPLES MOTTO: LIVE AND LET LIVE.........
    "Today we live in an era in which the worst vices are inscribed into law as human rights. Every evil must have its punishment, either in our times or in the afterlife." - Roberto De Mattei, 63, the deputy head of the country's National Research Council, Italy
    Deputy De Mattei who is a prominent Italian historian went on to say that the Roman Empire collapsed due to a contagion of homosexuality and effeminacy, which made it easy pickings for barbarian hordes. And there was more.

    Anyone conversant with the details of the collapse of the Roman Empire knows that the United States is precisely emulating the course that led to that empire’s fall and extinction. Ultra foolish fiscal policies and currency manipulation, abject political corruption, unfettered illegal immigration, and a complete break-down of social morality finished off the Roman Empire, and the same perversions are spelling doom for this once blessed republic. This country is in its late terminal stages and destined for internment in the graveyard of deceased nations and commonwealths. But, you dear reader can live eternally in a new world and an eternal Kingdom.

    ETERNAL LIFE........
    Only those born again of the Spirit are sons of the Most High God.
    Not one in a thousand who call themselves Christian understand what it means to be born again of the Spirit, one cannot be born again by a two minute profession of faith, one cannot be born again by regularly attending a denominational church, one cannot be born again by infant baptism, one cannot be born again by an altruistic life, and one cannot be born again by good works or philanthropy.
    To be born again one must die to self and submit absolutely to the will of Almighty God. The door to salvation and eternal life is the Lord Jesus Christ; no one comes to the Father except by Him. Walk through that door and enter into the membership of Christ’s Church, the Church against which the gates of hell will not prevail. It is the only church that counts. Do it now and live forever…
    And all of God’s people say - Amen!

    In this country there is a sparation of powers, mandated by Art.1, Sec. 8 of the Constitution. Making laws is ta function of the legislative branch, not the executive branch. It's high time Congress grew some balls and pulled this guy up short, Anyway the election is only 5 months away. We need to throw Obama out like yesterday's newspaper. If the present congress has no guts, we can elect a new one, and if they don't do the job, we'll elect another one. Nobody in Washington seems to understand that they work for US. We don't work for THEM. If they still taught Civics 101 in school more people would know how our government is supposed to work and people like Obama would never be elected to anything.

    When in the course of human events . . . . Please continue to read through the second paragraph . . . .
    .--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.--Read into this as you may, but as for me, I have seen a long train of abuses that seems only to get longer and those who are abusing are lying about perpetrating those abuses as they commit them and accusing others of their own crimes against our rights and freedoms as citizens of the United States. There is no consent or authority higher than that of the Citizens, Anyone who claims to be more powerful than we, are deceivers who wish only to control our every movement and dictate our choices, and cannot be believed or trusted, but be removed from their positions and shunned for life as should be their co-conspiritors..

    Obama has done 4X as many fund raisers as the avg. president... He has done more than 2X as many as the closest competitor. He has played golf ( on our dime) at least 100X during his tenure. His wife has Jet-Setted the world. He told the celebrities ( at a fund raiser) last week that they WILL BE the leaders of the world....
    This man is not a "would be dictator".... He is a dictator! When he does not get congress to do what he wants when he wants he does an executive order and makes it so.... When congress demands information he tells them they have no right to know it. When any of his people go to congress to testify they lie through their teeth as the "Supreme Leader" will not allow them to be taken down anyway. The ONLY thing that he may not do is "OPENLY" kill people who disagree with him..... No wait- He uses Drones to kill American citizens without a trial.... and one of his executive orders gives him permission to bring extreme military technology inside CONUS should controlling chaos and unrest become necessary.

Additionally, we wiil give 50 percent of all our future royalty income. trillions of dollars, from offshore oil and gas production to the UN to spend as they see fit. Ask your Senators to oppose the giving away of our sovereignty and money to the UN. If ratified these treaties are irrevocable.

    Obama showed his priority of where money should go when we were in the debate over raising the debt limit. He made a statement that he would not be able to guarantee certain government payments if the limit were not increased, he specifically pointed out that "Veterans" and "Social Security" pensions might be stopped.

    He did not mention "foreign aid", "prepaid government contracts" (payments to government contractors which have not yet done the work for which they receive payment), or "welfare payments".

    So apparently according to Obama's statement, welfare recipients and foreign nations (some of which actually work against the U.S.) are more deserving of financial support at the expense of the taxpayers, than disabled veterans who offered their lives in defense of the nation and suffered disabling injuries in the performance of their duties.

  • Schawminator

    I have family in Europe that has shared some potentially good news. after all the belated vetting of Obama many have now agreed he doesn't car about the average person muchless small business owners. This was in part due to them reading about small businesses create most of the jobs, his own race of people (blacks) especially the young in their teens and twenties having the higest jobless rates in the country. with a little more vetting many now believe Obama was a total Communist/Marxist plan because Obama should not be racially recognize as black but should be referred to as an Arab. They base this on whom he says is his father who's family tree is Arab. The key to uncovering this the the names Barack Hussine Obama are not African names. So, if the highest unemployment rate is among blacks that is because he needs to keep them on the governments socialist hook, rather then find them work. In other words keep his dependant voter base in tact. This finding seems to be of more interst to the German and French people.
    Does anyone have more to add to this subject?

    Although I'm certain that the numbers quoted in this article are correct (or under the actual totals), and I know in my heart that Obama is happy about it, this article is incomplete, because it doesn't state why he's happy or provide documentation to support this claim, which only appears in the title of the article.
    The author doesn't have to convince the majority of this audience, which is conservative, but there are a lot of left-siders that read this page, too, and they will want the facts to support the claim. GIVE THEM TO THEM!
    Although I am not a working journalist, I do have a degree in journalism, and I know that if I had submitted this article to a professor or to an editor, they'd have red marked it royally and shoved it back to me to finish it.
    It's hard enough to convince the liberals who think all is well with facts. We'll never do it without them.. Mr. DeMar, finish this article and then turn it in again. Godfather editor, you fell down on the job as well.
    Now, I think that Obama, if he is happy about the way their businesses are running, he should go without a salary as well, because the financial state of this country is unspeakably badly failing. All of our Congressional representatives should be doing the same, because they are helping him spend the money we don't have.
    AND FURTHERMORE...Why aren't Obama and his RICH liberal supporters practicing what they preach and spreading their fortunes around to those going without? Is that policy only applicable to the conservatives?

    Obama is the smartest man on the planet and he is counselled by his Secretary of the Treasury

    Is so financially challenged that he could not even file a correct income tax return or pay his tax that he had a letter that said the income was taxable. Yes, we know that a neighborhood organizer give Obama the financial knowledge without even taking economics, math, or science in University.

    Commisar Obamav has only one real desire . To destroy America and anyway possible . He will set the stage for our failure via any means be it , race war , financial ruin , revolution .

Deported his Kenyan father who over stayed his visa's . In his mind , denied his mother healthcare ( a complete pile of BS ) . And has a Constitution granting its people freedom and rights .
    Remember , this is a country that gave him everything , education , freedom and opportunity . Does he remember that ? No he decides that everything about this country is wrong . He decides that what he knows is better and Americans need to work hard to keep him and his liberal values in comfort and then blame all the failures not on his policies , but on former Presidents or anyone opposing his agenda . It's time , as Americans correct the mistake that was made in 2008 . Replace this egomaniac and make him a one term president and insure his place in history as the worst president in the history of the United States if not in all of history of the world . As it stands now , this guy might even surpass Caligula

    THE ROOTS OF LIBERAL'S CRY FOR "TOLERANCE."

    Liberals
    suffer from a mental disorder. Neurologists have now confirmed that the
    mental defect called "Liberalism" is a 'progressive' disease: one
    that grows on the 'victim' as the victim ages, making the liberal more
    incoherent and detached from reality (See, e.g., Pelosi, Ginsburg).
    Pursuant to research, this appears to be the reason why liberals unwittingly
    call themselves "progressives" and cling to "victimhood" while
    believing both to be badges of honor. Researchers conclude that, since
    government sanitariums no longer exist and there is no place to adequately
    sequester Liberals from the general public, liberalism’s cry for "Tolerance"
    is actually an evolutionary survival reflex, imploring non-liberals to tolerate
    liberal idiots. That’s how they are able to exist in society.

Often, our company bank account only has a couple hundred dollars in it, and it occasionally dips down to the 2-digit numbers. There is ZERO breathing room here!

    The Media is an enemy within. As far as I am concerned they are worst than al-Qaeda. There are many people and news anchors who I respected only do have them disappoint me by changing their minds. Maybe it is because their boss told them they have to go that way. Maybe an outsider told them to cool it. Maybe it is because they are concerned about their being more popular to more people. Why would people like O'Reilly, Hannity and others change their minds and say they now believe that this illegal, phony. lying POTUS was born in the US, because they take Hawaii's words as the truth. I thinkit should be against the law for anyone to teport anything about any election until it is over and all results have been tallied. I have seen where the Media coverage of any election has influenced the way peope have voted, There is no reason to have a blow by blow account of an election. NONE!!!

  • Sproing

    I'm going to take a different tack on this since any actual rational thinking person has already come to the conclusion that President Obama IS NOT the man we need in the Whitehouse.
    One of the major problems facing this country is the lack of investment capital and the taking on of new risk that goes with all new hiring and plant expansion. This kind of atmosphere is most often preceded and then supported by fear. The fear of what may lie ahead with taxes, ever more restrictive legislation that leads to more and more expensive litigation which slows expansion and exploration, and the fear of yet another war or otherwise disruptive international conflict or economic collapse.
    I sometimes wish that cancer hadn't forced my retirement at too young an age but I certainly don't miss the tremendous pressure I was under every single working hour of every single working day as the owner and CEO of a franchised new car dealership with 30+ employees and monthly overhead and expenses that were in the $150-200,000 range. That's $5-6,000 every day of the month whether or not I was open for business and before I could show any profit for that day. The number of regulations my company had to abide by even if they were counter-productive and often worked at cross purposes was amazing and growing more and more restrictive and expensive every year.
    That was 13 years ago and has only gotten worse since. For the small business man wanting to get started the start-up expenses and ongoing costs make such an effort almost impossible for all but the most fortunate of citizens and for those why bother taking the risk so as to keep 5% or less of every dollar that gets charged to a paying customer. The risk/reward ratio is simply too narrow for all but the largest and most heavily funded companies to even venture into. Consider then the plight of the individual who dreams of making a real mark in then world of business. Such a goal is slowly going the way of the Dodo bird due to increased and ill conceived regulations and legislation coupled with a ever increasing demand by local, state, and federal governing bodies to squeeze more and more money from them for program after program designed, at best, to support a permanent non-working, non-taxing paying underclass of public teat suckers who hate those whose very success makes their lives, however dreary, possible.
    It's not just Obama, although he has certainly accelerated the process through his ignorance of and distaste for our American adaptation of a free market capitalist system. Almost without fail every market that has been subject to ongoing scrutiny and regulation by the Federal government has seen an overall decline in it's profitability, efficiency, and competitiveness. The only way to offset these exploding costs companies must become international players, aggressively minimize their competition, and also seek some sort of rent-seeking and profit protected status such as the utility companies and institutions that are increasingly being referred to as "too big to fail".
    What exactly does that term mean? Simply put if such a company finds itself in dire straits from incompetent management, inefficiencies, inability to compete, corruption, or what have you, then you, the taxpayer, will be called upon to divert some of your earned income to bailing these institutions out. Look at what transpired as a result of the most recent perfect storm of just those various factors that launched us into perhaps a situation that is financial much worse the the Great Depression.
    The government should be actively looking for ways to expand the numbers of competing companies so as to avoid anyone becoming too big to fail, and one of the best ways to do that would be to lessen the initial and ongoing operating costs that are directly attributable to the most egregious of regulations and legislation. The tax structure should be completely revamped so as to broaden the base, minimize the loopholes that benefit too few, and to keep the capital that is the lifeblood of our economy, where it belongs and that is within the free market system itself and not the historically wasteful and inefficient federal coffers. If we don't begin to turn in this direction, and soon, the great experiment that is our Democracy will have failed.

  • AkSounder

    Short response - if he's a business owner and works another job, this is not his full time work, and not what we think of when we talk "small business" - businesses that employ a dozen people or so. Small businesses like that have not been hit by higher taxes, and I can't recall anywhere Obama would have expressed happiness about their problems.
    I'm gonna guess a key problem for businesses like that is a lack of customers that can afford their services, so let's try to pass some anti-abortion bills.

  • Saltporkdoc

    Proposed as a new Constitutional Amendment- when the number of small business owners sacrificing their own paychecks is greater than the number of times that POTUS has been actively involved in the budgetary process of the government, but less than the number of family vacations and rounds of golf taken and played by POTUS, it shall be mandatory that POTUS may NOT be paid or compensated in any way shape or form!

    Think about Obama's words and actions. Democrats, with media support, are hoping and manipulating the market to get lower gas prices before the elections. But, Obama said, in speeches, he wants $8.00 to $9.00/gallon gas for Americans. Obama also just gave away 7 oil-rich Alaska Islands to Russia so they can drill our oil. That was just after he turned down the Keystone pipeline which will now force Canada to sell to China. (Google "Obama Oil-rich islands secret giveaway"). That's a hate crime against Americans. I rest my case. Peace.
    Ps. If Bush or Sarah Palin gave oil rich Islands to Russia, during sky-rocketing energy prices, they would have been impeached or put in jail.

    of course we know that only pertains to the private sector right? just now have the public sector been asked to make sacrifices, and they only do so kicking and screaming like little children who can't get there way! in some cases the intire towns, cities, counties have either gone under, or are claiming bankrupcy, the city I was born in has gone bankrupt! and that is over a yr. after the state took over, (Central Falls, R.I.) and they had already taken over the schools yrs. ago! now there capitol city (Providence is right on the edge), and has anyone but me noticed that any of the states that are in the red, just happen to be blue? and that most of the red states are humming right along, one of them just almost got rid of there property taxes! I'm still not sure how that didn't win, maybe more people work for the state than support it! and that is because of all things OIL! rights! can you imagine that!

We had had other chances at electing a GOOD truly black man but never would. Now we have him and he has destroyed EVERYTHING we have worked for and fought and died for for over 235 years. WE have voted for a king and driven GOD completely out of the country and our lives and we WILL live to regret it. We have a very slight chance to fix this problem in November but it will take ALL of the patriotic Americans we have left to go VOTE HIM OUT.

    ANY other president would have already had impeachment filed & started against them, but this one. For some reason, ALL of our leaders, on BOTH sides seem to be afraid of this man. He may not be the anti-Christ, as some thought, but he's close enough to it to scare me, for this nation. I have no idea what is going to happen in this country, but, I DO know one thing that ISN'T going to happen~America will NEVER be the same. We can rise up against those who are determined to destroy her, & take this nation back, BUT~until we turn back to God, & HIS principles & laws, it will be of little effect. God does NOT bless those who forsake Him, nor those who forsake Israel. People better be getting ready for what's coming, because it's NOT going to be nice, or easy to stand through it.

      I agree Sharon. There's so much BS going on I hope we can pull through this. But I believe we'll see some violence at some point. We should pray to our Lord for deliverance.

    Like all freely elected Africans, Barack Obama has turned into a tyrannical dictator. He freely ignores Congress' expressed powers in the Constitution. He has an enemy list of his political opponents and uses federal law enforcement, and SEIU's thugs to go after people on his list. I don't know if Obama has ordered any citizens killed in the U.S., and this is the only difference between he and Robert Mugabe. However he still has seven months in office so he might just take actions that will make him comparable.

  • SeaShel

    Obama happy and the middle class is doing fine without pay while he golfs for the 100th time in his administration. Something is rotten here in Washington as well as in the American home where he is supported.

    I work in a small company. I have seen the owner take no paycheck for 2-3 pay cycles just so the bills could be paid and the rest of us be paid. The owner has only taken a paycheck when it was absolutely necessary.
    In the meantime, the material/gas costs went up (healthcare went up three times in three years, and the insurance company can't seem to figure out how much we actually owe). SOME of our vendors (one is another small business) have been incredibly patient. Others, however, have not been so patient.

    Our requisite insurances have gone up incredibly. Hire someone here, and all your taxes (unemployment, payroll, and healthcare) go up. We'd REALLY like to hire someone, but the cost is prohibitive right now.

    Careful selection of the stories to downplay or ignore is also important. The Fast and Furious scandal, the presidential leak scandal, giving two thirds of the "stimulus" cash to his top donors & green energy thieves, the almost complete ignoring of the Catholic Church’s battle with the administration, the proof that President Obama was a dues-paying member of the socialist New Party, the ongoing coverup of Obama’s past — the list is long and getting longer every day.But there are deeper manipulations going on.

  • Wayne Peterkin

    All Hail Kin Obama! The imperial presidency is here. Now we need to throw him out of office in November and insure we never elect another King.

    No one in the WH or congress can say that. When it comes toanything to be done its the people out in our lands and not Washington.

    Think outside z "box" ....or simply get a bigger one ! .. My estimate is as follows ... thje "tipping" point for the economy to fail & hyperinflation to begin ....will occur after friday 21st of December 2012 ! That's when the last treasury bonds will be sold to foreigne countries in exchange for continued commercial advantages ....meaning that afterwards ... the cash flow will come to a suddenly fast slowdown : 100% inflation every 3 months ! .. at best ....2/3 of the US population should dissapear by 2021 ..fema camps & crematoriums will hire the desperate few .. At a capacity of 6 million people for all retention centers and the cremating average of 6 million a month the first 2 years on the north American continent .. it should work well for the NWO ...

    Thank you for telling the truth!

    Please keep this information coming....the more we unite against this idiot in the white house and his hypnotized minions the better off we will be.

    We have some media that are now saying the President is overstepping his office and is proving he is lawless in his actions. This latest attack against the Congress by bypassing them in this unlawful Executive order. This should be the straw that breaks the Camels back, Move to Impeach him that is one way to answer his lawlesness.

    I tell you all this is the same picture as Russia. Small businesses are nothing there. They make very little money. Only the extremely huge corporate businesses flourish there. I have proof of this today because of a Peace Corps Volunteer I know is there in the Ukraine as I speak. Kiev is a great beautiful city, a tourist city, but go out of its city walls and you see the real Russia. They have nothing all because of the government and the people are dictated to what they have and do. This is so sad and yet we have such stupid people who are yet so educated to be wanting this. They have no clue. It's too bad we can't start another nation for ourselves and let those who don't even know what they are getting us into stay with Obama, the destroyer.

    Dictatorial socialism at work! Get this illegal, muslim out of office NOW, even before November!!!

  • Flowers

    Of course it doesn't bother him because it doesn't affect him or his spendthrift family. It won't matter much after the Congress hands over complete dictatorship to him instead of just giving it to him piecemeal.

    The case study above is exactly my situation

  • gnafuasusual

    This article is spot on. Many small businesses are going through one helluva time trying to keep the doors open to customers. It has come down to owners eating their product for meals (Mom-Pop restaurants) and depending on a spouse or other family member to pay the utility bills at home. They are barely hanging in there. So when we see a small business in our home towns, we should try to support them the best we can.

    Yes, go Tea Party People! We all vote this time. "Overcome evil with Good."

    we need to fight for this country and vote him out of office in November

  • Evermyrtle

    Can you expect anymore out of an anti-American. Listen to all of the videos that he has spoken on and you will have not doubt of this. He has said on different ones, if it comes to sides, I would go Muslim; I was born in Kenya, I am ashamed of America!.

  • DiamondDean

    Count me in as a statistic. 2 years without pay and 90k sunk in. Then my staff bails because "its too slow." Forced to shut down. I find them all jobs. They illegally apply for unemployment (and get it), while I'm left to gut the office and notified that I haven't been paid unemployment for 21 days because "I'm under review."
    Am I losing faith in people. Regretfully yes. Am I losing faith in government? No. I lost it over a decade ago.

    Entrepreneurs are the best of the best. They (we) "get it." Drive, passion, creativity, sacrifice, and never say die attitudes are "our" world. It's natural for us to lead this way.
    Not to squeeze our owner for every last dime (because we are the owners). Not for votes to win the election.
