Going out of Business
Many businesses have closed. Very few have opened. Many strip malls are empty with a few stalwarts still trying to grasp at straws. I go to businesses to buy things where I have gone before and they're not there. Sometimes there is a sign. Sometimes no sign at all - they threw in the towel without a whisper. Not even a note.
To hear idiots like Vice President Joe (Slow Joe) Biden speak, 'happy days are here again', but he and his coterie of puffed up, bloated fatcats and Washington insiders must not leave the DC Beltway much. Or, more likely, they simply don't care. Barack Hussein Obama (mmm-mmm-mmm), concerned with himself alone, is even further in the ozone.
Car dealerships that once had a large inventory on the lot, now have half a dozen or a dozen cars floored for customer's inspection as they cope with lack of sales and credit.
And for every company that fails, people are out of work. Failed companies and the unemployed do not pay taxes. The more the government makes good its promise to tax those evil, rich Americans that make over $250,000 into the poor house, the less likely those evil rich will be motivated to RISK opening businesses and employing people. I mean why bother when Barack Hussein Obama (mmm.mmm.mmm) promises to take what you earn for the sake of social leveling?
One of my best friends has a wife who is a noted computer scientist - and there aren't even any employment ads in AMERICA for her specialty. A number of companies in India have been courting her, but she has no interest in moving to India. I just hired her husband to work for me - he was out of work. He was concerned that maybe, just maybe, they'd have to move to India just to find work. That's the hope and change Dear Leader brought.
Welcome! You're in the ObamaNation!! It's a place of CHANGE that idiots voted for. It's just one big party here and don't worry about illegal aliens - the Mexicans have gone home because they can't find work either.
