They're claiming if the Bush tax cuts are allowed to expire that unemployment will jump up 2%.
WHY? Because some fat f**k will lay off his minimum/low wage earning staff so he can retain his multimillion dollar a year salary?
Well you know what, screw that greedy f**ker how about the sob makes a million a year less so 50 of his low wage earners can keep their jobs. I mean if you can't get by on 9 million dollars a year instead of 10 then you're part of the problem not the solution. I'm no socialist but at some point enough is enough, unbridled greed is what's put this country in the shitter.

If you were my employee I would fire you just for thinking you were entitled to my money.

Think I'm wrong? Take this simple little test...
You take a day off work and see how much less product or services are produced by your company that day. Now give the day off to all your employees and see how much product or services are produced on that day.

Sure as an owner you're entitled to make a profit and an above average income since you put up the cash to get things going, it's your name on all the bills, and you carry the liability. As a human and an American though you should also be thinking about the big picture and how your actions effect the lives of those who are your loyal employees, if you don't then you're just a greedy sack of crap and a contributor to the mess this country is in.

Like I said before, if you can't live on 9 million dollars a year instead of 10 which would allow about 50 minimum wage employees to keep their jobs and eek out a meager existence, as well as helping America and your local community while you enjoy your mansion and cars or whatever floats your boat then you're just a pathetic greedy little f**k.

Sir, with all due respect, your opinion seems logical if you are talking about huge multinational corporations. However, as a small business owner, I can say you couldn't be more incorrect if you are including smaller sized corporations. A lot of smaller corporations are already operating lean and mean in an attempt to simply make it through this tough economy. I spend each day looking at expenses I can cut or do without simply to keep the doors open without having to sacrifice any jobs. Most times, I am successful at doing that. However, there are times when the only expense left is payroll. Sometimes, I do have to sacrifice a job or two in order to salvage many more jobs. Sometimes, I cut my salary to nothing to salvage a job and I can guarantee you, my salary is not that high. Right now, I pay federal and state corporate tax, sales and use tax, franchise tax, excise tax, payroll tax, property tax both local and county, and the mandated workman's comp tax. I also pay for employees health,dental,vision and disability insurance along with 401K retirement fees. When the Bush tax cuts expire and if I can't find anything else to compensate for higher taxes, then I will have to sacrifice jobs or benefits to pay for the higher taxes to remain in business.

Most businesses are not high profit multinational corporations whose CEO's make millions of dollars a year. Adding more expense to these types of companies is a huge hurdle to overcome in a rough economy. I challenge you to look up how much commercial real estate is vacant in this area right now. I can assure you if taxes are higher, there will be more.

I do respect your right to your opinion and I am in no way bashing it. I just want to point out one reality that a lot of people don't see.

Would you not simply LOVE to be able as a citizen, to be able to claim that same bullshit 2%- 10% penalty tax, back at the asswipes who charge such pathetic rates, and who are actually skipping this tax and using it too fund other ILLEGAL funding. Us as citizens do have this right and the power to do so, but honestly we are so divided, that even through a major event or catastrophe, we will more than likely still be divided and come together, by simply letting the government and others give us bullshit options to bicker about? This is what we a country has done, we have allowed for it to be chopped up and divided with demographics,politics,racism,a nd so on.

The bigger truth is this and I cannot say this enough.

Our economy is over with and fucked over so badly, there is no repair method, no matter what anyone claims if you look into the details. The TARP injection now has an over 40 TRILLION dollar lawsuit against it, which is WAY more than what they was supposed to "handout". Let alone the other massive amounts of trillions our shithead fed reserve has lent out, over the years to all their banking cartels across the globe. When the true value of our currency is announced it will be too late, and especially for the majority "class", which is the middle class. They will suffer the most and be devastated in way, we have never seen before. Makes the great depression seem like getting finger banged by a midget, compared to getting a blowjob from a girl with braces and likes to sneeze a lot and her pops walks in with fully loaded shotgun and you know he is pulling the trigger.

No penis was harmed in the telling of this story nor a personal reflection, just a little bit of imagery with even uglier true story behind it.

If you take away a person's incentive to better themselves then you kill motivation. Most of the 1% have worked their ass off to get to where they are. Why complain about it? Why not try to better yourself and make more yourself rather than just have someone give something to you for no more effort. Yeah, I would have liked to have not gone into debt for college. Yeah, I would have liked to enjoyed my youth just partying. Yeah, I would have like to have not taken the extreme risk of starting my own business and actually giving people jobs. Who would lose if the business doesn't work...ME. I guess it's time to file for disability and stick my hand out like everybody else. Who will pay the taxes? The 1% pay the taxes you moron! Do something with your life. Better yourself. Don't worry about anybody else's income but yours and control your destiny.

Interesting thing about a free country. If you don't like your job or you think you can do better, there's nobody stopping you from quitting and pursuing your dreams!

Just don't blame others for your own failures!

without the top 1% you have nothing.. The tax cuts / child credits/ earned income all need to go away. Why? Because lazy ass Americans are dependent on the GOVERNMENT money.. how about get yourself a job and stop asking for hand outs.

Im sorry but money and material items has destroyed and distorted what "life" was originally supposed to be about.

You CAN have so much more without the 1%, its just easier to "go with the grain" than to standup as a human, when you know your being done wrong and being used as a basic slavery tool. Each day we go more bankrupt than we actually are, and you have people like me and many others, trying to warn people of the impending doom, but sadly everyone is consumed by this materialistic lifestyle, that means "jack shit".

The tax cuts are not even close to being the issue, even though they are an issue. Its about the percentages of loans handed out, to OTHER countries at rates that are basically nothing or next to nothing. The world bank cartels are the public enemy number one, who has destroyed the entire principle of "helping" or "monitoring" funds for the general public. They have found ways to corrupt its very existence and extort anyone who is not within their "group(s)".

Once again also, the federal reserve is also an equal problem in the world and ESPECIALLY for the US. For they print even more money to "fix" current debts and too be able to "pump" money into the economy. Sadly its ALWAYS ends up getting soaked right back up into the already massively rich corporations,banks,equity firms,and person(s) from which control ALL scenarios in the first place. So yeh they should absolutely pay some fuckin taxes and be taxed even more, unless your stating its ok too be greedy as shit, which is beyond inhumane in the first place.

I personally do not live off the government or have ever needed or wanted their help. For I know then, they "own" you EVEN more than they already do. There are no freedoms left in this country what so ever, when compared to MANY other REAL freedom based countries.

Funny how most of you self righteous idiots assume I must be some uneducated lazy government dependent blaming everyone but myself for what you assume to be failure.

Well I got news for ya, while I may not be in the top 1% I have enough of my own money that I actually earned, everything I own including my home is paid for and I owe nothing to anyone. I live within my means and I'm content and comfortable. I do no collect any type of assistance and due to health reasons I will never live to see retirement age and collect back what is owed to me. So someone somewhere is definitely getting a free ride from me.

You people are all about me me me and screw the other guy which I personally find pathetic greedy and one of the main causes of the issues facing our nation today. People like you are eroding this nation into a shitpile and leaving a world of crap to future generations.

Its like a giant centipede of getting fuckd, except there is ALWAYS a "top" leader(s), that you come to.

I am trying my HARDEST to expose the very tipppy top or as far as US, that are citizens of the country can reach. We still have power as the people and CAN overthrow congress,government,and federal reserve. Which are all corrupt by corporations,greed,enslavement ,scandals,and whatever the hell else. This entire system of a "government body" was built upon the very essence of helping US out, not destroying our right and robbing us blind. Politics has NEVER been the answer or ever will be.

Also in my opinion, there will HAVE to be a time to delete the use of ANY monetary system.

To have money, there has to be debt.
To have debt, there has to be money.

Ever since the general idea of money,credits,and debts - there has been corruption to match it.

The concept of our currency and the worlds, was literally built on corruption and lies, so why would anyone ever think it would change, especially when its had the same history throughout history.
