Iíve been a small business owner for almost 20 years.* During that time my company has given thousands of dollars to schools, baseball teams, charities, PBS, fundraisers and drives to help the poor.* My employees and I have volunteered to hand out meals to the hungry and deliver fans to the elderly during the summer. *Weíve worked on parks and planted trees. In short, weíve done what small business have always done, become an integral part of the fabric of society and give back in many different ways.


*


But no more.


*


Iíve been educated during the past four years to understand all that money and all that work is not the job of small business owners at all.* It is the governmentís job.* The government knows better how to spend our money than we do and only government can provide solutions to our everyday problems.


*


It turns out that not only was I a fool to donate all that time and money but doing so makes me an evil person as well.* Who knew?


*


But now Iíve seen the light thanks to a thorough education from the American public.* Those higher taxes that I pay are a much better use of my money than giving $600 to the elementary school for new playground equipment.* And those poor kids that show up hungry for school are better fed by the government than my measly $200 a month.* Besides, those hungry kids donít want to be fed by money that was generated from rotten Capitalistic profits.* Theyíd rather go hungry than have anything to do with the ďPĒ word.


*


So thanks America for the education.* Iíll just pocket the money that Iíd normally put back into the community.* My raise happens to come at a good time.

Donate your money to the schools so they can buy more copies of "King and King."

If you really want to know what is going on with the economy in America donít watch CNN, Fox, or any of the other popular news channels.* They miss the obvious.* Instead, watch the business channels and pick up a Wall Street Journal every once in awhile.


*


Theyíll tell you everything you need to know.


*


When the Fed vows to keep printing money like itís going out of style, youíll learn how that affects you and me.* When lawmakers vow to make those evil profit makers pay a steep price for their greed, youíll find out how that affects you and me.


*


And most importantly, youíll learn over time that our fearless leaders have no intention whatsoever in fixing the economy.* They like it exactly the way it is.

In other words, throw out all other evidence and proof and rely totally on the lies being sold to the public by the right wing elites and their minions on the infotainment industry. Uh, no thanks. I prefer facts.*

You are correct. When the real facts are needed we should always turn to mediamatters, huffingon post, dailykos, CNN, MSNBC, alternet. All bastions of truth, honesty, and unbiased to a fault.

This is amusing coming from someone who provides links to the White House propaganda web site to make her economic points.

I certainly understand such feelings given the idiot level of dialogue in the media and Washington; but I think we both know that with time we'll overcome the current insanity.


We all educate through our everyday actions. Hopefully it will open some eyes and some minds. If someone is trying to get onto the interstate, let him in and give them room instead accelerating, you'll still reach your destination on time.

It isn't my fault that you guys only believe information coming from right wing sites and Fox News. And I actually link to many sites that are not strictly left leaning sites. Of course you and your's can decry them all you like, that doesn't actually make them inaccurate. *

Another amusing and false claim. Why is it every uninformed leftist Progressive thinks that Conservatives get their information from Fox News or Rush Limbaugh. I think this is more an example of being stuck on stupid when making such idiotic claims. I seldom watch Fox or listen to Rush. But I can assure you that the information contained on either is superior to the crap you follow.

Again, anyone basing their beliefs and views on what this White House puts out is living in fairy land and suggests someone who is perfectly willing to suspend their good common sense.
