What we can expect from the jobs bill

Post by preston » Fri Sep 02, 2011 9:26 am

Okay ... first they came for the lemonade stands and I thought that was a bumm rap for the youthful entrepeneurs of America.

But now they'e telling one of the premier guitar manufacturing companies in the world that if they don't want to be hassled by Justice Department thugs they'll have to outsource their labor overseas.

Just proves our government wants to keep us under their thumb and what better way then to take away good paying jobs or jobs period. Our government isn't about saving the John Q. Public. They're about wanting complete control and power. It's high time we as American citizens stop relying on the government and take back this nation. Even if it means a Revolution. It was done against the British. Or does anyone remember that? If not read your history books a little bit more. We as a nation have fallen in the category of being lazy and not caring what our government does as long as we have what we need to get by. But let's face it folks, even our government wants to take that away completely. Granted the boys in Washington DC may talk a good game but they're full of b.s. Anyone with common sense can hear and see that. Until people start getting off their duffs and actually do something for a change, we are going to continue to be sheep led to the slaughterhouse.

:lol: :lol: :lol: And I can't go into details over the net, Texan. You never know who maybe watching our every move. :shock: I will tell you this though, just like the Roman Empire and many others, our government will fall as well. Their demise is way overdue and the Devil is calling in all the debts our Government owes him. It's just a matter of time..

I think President Obama's speech this comiing Thursday will unveil a radical new approach to partially solving both unemployment, and rebuilding infastructure. Also,....I think Jimmy Hoffa was right on the money in what he said earlier. I'm glad someone had the stones to say it the way it really is. His Dad would be proud. :soapbox:

Obama doesn't have the balls to be radical.. He's a puppet on a string for those really controlling things. My god, he originally planned his speech for when but then changed it because the GOP threw a fit, he changed it. He's a ball-less wonder, not a leader.. I guarantee you anything we hear will just be the same old recycled :badword: with a pretty new bow on it. :no: Unlike the rest of America I'm not relying on this government to save this nation. Instead I've been getting off my duff and letting my voice be known. I for one refuse to be a sheep led to the slaughterhouse, I for one am taking a stand. Not only do we need to get God back in this country, we also need to get common damn sense back in the government.

Nuff said.

By the way, the tax credit has been done before and to death. Employers aren't hiring still based solely on people's credit scores. They may say it's hard for them to find workers well I wonder why.. A half of million folks fall on hard times like anyone else and their credit suffers thus they don't get hired. If anything the checking of credit scores needs to be abolished. It has nothing to do with employment and it's just an employer's way of being bias. I understand work history and criminal background checks but the credit score is a little ridiculous especially considering this nation is still falling on economic hard times. Honestly, that is the only way for this nation to get back on track and to get people back to work. But once again Washington just wants to slap a new band-aid on an already infected gunshot wound.
