“Don’t Be Barack Obama’s Fool Young America”
Barack Obama has already started an endless series of taxpayer funded promos touting his economic agenda and job creating tax credits. I’ll tell you just like I’d tell my own kid, “Use your head first then ask someone you trust.” Young America, I challenge you to use your own mind first then ask anyone you know that employs non-family workers if Barack Obama is helping or hurting job growth - then make your decision as to whether you ever need to listen to Barack Obama.
Just the numbers alone should scare any person under 50 to death. The President recently flew to the Midwest to celebrate the creation of 600 government stimulated jobs. These are considered ‘boutique’ jobs as in jobs that exist only because someone needed them to be created - not as an outgrowth of ‘business development’. Again, ask anyone you trust if they think you‘ll have a shot at one of those 600 jobs in the Midwest.
Take the example of the mom and pop pizza joint started by a young couple with two small children. They get a great deal on a small spot on a corner that turns into a gold mine franchised first locally then regional suitors came calling. Turns out the couple had a great business model and a great pie. Their ingenuity creates and supports literally 100’s of jobs that are sustainable by customers lined up around the block. A list of service providers like accountants, lawyers, delivery services, payroll services, uniform services and of course the food distributors who also rely on the teamsters - all benefit. These are jobs you can depend on. ‘Barack Obama’ jobs are not just pie in the sky - his policies will put a major dent in the aforementioned industries. Again, ask anyone you trust. Under Barack Obama, this young couple never start that business.
Young America, what’s important to know about Barack Obama and Jobs is that Barack Obama has never created a job - he has only financed jobs. There’s a tremendous difference. In the mom and pop pizza example, these were created jobs. Many employers are simply sitting on their hands hiring only essential employees freezing Barack Obama the Tax Man out until his term runs out in 2012. Why hire now while Obama attaches a web of taxes on employers for new hires?
Of course Obama-ites would say that tax credits for new hires balance out any new hire question to whit I would suggest you inquire as to who they assume to be stupid - us or them. I won’t even suggest that you bother someone you trust on this one. An employer gains a $1,000 tax credit for hiring an employee and is eligible for an additional $3,000 tax credit if the employee is retained for a certain period of time. The employee is paid a salary of $24,000 and another 16,000 for Obamacare Insurance. If I’m an employer, I keep my $40,000, leave that new hire in the ‘maybe later bin’ and give some existing employee overtime.
In this example, it makes sense for the employer to tell Barack Obama he can keep his tax credit. The sustainable job that you’ll need to support your family and buy high end luxuries like homes and cars will be created by tax cuts to those who employ. Those tax cuts to businesses, not individuals, make job creation feasible. Tax credits as an incentive for an employer is naive, stupid or both!
While assessing Barack Obama as a leader capable of making life better for you ask yourself why he or his minions don’t have ideas like this sent to the St. Petersburg Fl. Times Business Section in response to a request for ideas on: "How Would You Fix the Economy?"
Dear Mr. President,
Please find below my suggestion for fixing America 's economy. Instead of giving billions of dollars to companies that will squander the money on lavish parties and unearned bonuses, use the following plan. You can call it the "Patriotic Retirement Plan":
There are about 40 million people over 50 in the work force. Pay them $1 million apiece severance for early retirement with the following stipulations:
1) They MUST retire. Forty million job openings - Unemployment fixed.
2) They MUST buy a new American CAR. Forty million cars ordered – Auto Industry fixed.
3) They MUST either buy a house or pay off their mortgage – Housing Crisis fixed.
It can't get any easier than that!!
P.S. If more money is needed, have all members in Congress pay their taxes..
Mr. President, while you're at it, make Congress retire on Social Security and Medicare. I'll bet both programs would be fixed pronto!
This guy might be on to something.
As a final note of rebuttal to the Barack Obama promo I saw, take some time on a pretty day Young America and ride through any housing project in your area. Simply observe the number of small children you see running around. These will be the future able bodied adults that will be supported through life on taxpayer funded entitlements. Also note the number of females of childbearing years sharing space with a crowd of absolutely useless men. This is a big part of what you’ll support with tax dollars levied on you because you’ll get up and go to work.
In short, life’s already a bitch. Don’t be someone’s fool. Barack Obama is endeavoring to sell you a bill of worthless goods Young America.
“Don’t Be Barack Obama’s Fool!”
