That's impossible to find and you know it. There are bout 10-20 million sole proprietorships in America and I would be willing to bet that most of those will have their businesses suffer if taxes are raised. I can look at my own business and tell you that the number on our p&l statement is far greater than what is in the checkbook. On paper, we are a very strong company and in reality we are holding our own without having to go into debt or borrow money for business capital. But there isn't enough room to raise our taxes very much more before it starts causing us to have to use lines of credits. If we are hit with more taxes, it will just cause our prices to go up to cover the costs of the interest that has to be paid on lines of credit. Most business owner I talk to with the exception of a very few are doing worse off than us and a few are in the same boat as us. Unless all of the "exceptions to the rule" live in Camden then I would say that most of American small businesses are in the exact same situation. Those in the 2% that make a salary from a business and have no overhead could probably afford to pay more in taxes and not see their lives change much. The problem is that there are so few of those individuals and so many of the small business owners that will get hurt if higher taxes are enacted. Liberals don't see things that way. They see someone making $250K on paper and assume that they can afford more taxes. Reality simply doesn't play out that way. Business owners salaries are far less than the Wall Street execs that we have been thrown in the boat with in the public's eyes.
Tell you what, this Liberal hopes not ONE of a million things that effect the price of doing business INCREASES for your business,

You just might have to close your imaginary doors.

I sure hope you do not throw that tenant out who contributes nothing to society,($600.00 a month for rent, excluded) to make a political statement.

The Loss of income forcing you to seek pubic assistance for food just like those that you think that are so far below you.



BTW- Interest rates for worthy creditors is extremely low, the Stock market is paying dividends and maintaining a steady increase........

WOW----The answer to your problems,


Get a loan at less than 4% to floor plan your (wink) business then invest your money in the stock market.

And do not even get me started on bonds..........

The problem was Obama not compromising. He won the election so he believes that he has the upper hand in this. He does but not near as much as he thinks. Obama is going to sacrifice 98% of the nation for the sake of raising taxes on 2% which doesn't even come close to fixing the problem. So the middle class and lower class will not only be crushed by increased taxes but also by the increase in the costs of goods (as if they aren't bad enough) as a result of higher taxes on the upper class that owns most of the businesses in America. It's all a part of Obama's grand plan to destroy capitalism. It would be different if the increase in taxes for the rich would actually fix the problem but it isn't even close.
Even if taxing the rich would fix the problem, it is not a problem they created, so it's not their responsibility to fix it and there should be no burden put on them to do so.

<quoted text>lol um the answer to your dumbass question is yes.. countries with not nearly as leineant gun control as we have have far less murders caused by guns... and what the hell do you think is the problem? call of duty on xbox? lol get the hell outta here with that bs... what do you think the problem is? because what i'm seeing is too many damn readily available body armor and assault rifles being used by a bunch of ignorant people but yes i must agree their parents probbably weren't much parents to begin with .. but if you think that horror movies and call of duty is to blame the answer is no .. and the problem with our damn school is the education system needs to be reformed .. with bush's "no child left behind" act making it almost impossible for teachers to fail students... we promote bad habbits and it carries on through life just like the damn GOP promoting their damn campaign advisor to 1st seat behind ryan lol he failed misserably and what do they do ? give him a raise? that only makes sense right?.. what needs to happen with our schools is that kids need to be held accountable for their grades and parents need to be forced to either help their kids or watch them fail.. this holding hands through till high school or even college sometimes is a bunch of bs and lets these damn parents with no interest in helping theirselves pass those traditions on to their kids.
Why do you sometimes sound like a conservstive, but promote libs?

<quoted text>so you think that by increasing taxes on corporate business investors or ceo's is going to do this? lol what ajoke... and who cares about fixing the whole problem ..
This is the mindset I am talking about. You think that every single one of the 2% is a corporate business investor or a big company CEO. There are probably just a few thousand of them, and that's being generous. There are about 6-7 million people in this country that make over 250K per year. These men and women are the backbone of our economy and you and other liberals are willing to crush most of them under an unsustainable tax burden in order to get to the tiny percentage of those making more money than they have sense. All you care about is making those at the very top pay because you and other people like you think it's unfair reguardless of who else it hurts. As to you not caring about fixing the whole problem, I will take that as an admission that you realize that Obama's plan to tax the rich won't fix anything and is no more than political theater. I do applaud you for trying to plug in the numbers and make them work though because you are the only liberal that has even tried it. Or at least tried it and admitted what a joke it is even if you didn't say those words (you didn't have to).

Of course it was premeditated. There were too many steps followed in precise order to carry it out. He knew darn well what he was doing. He would have ended up dead no matter what the courts, or any doctors, said anyway.

<quoted text>all of our buisnesses are incorporated. My wife and I are the owners of the corp. The corporation writes each of us a salary paycheck of $200 each week. much less than the minium wage. Half of what we paid ourselves 4 years ago. Of course the lions share of our profit stays in the corporate account. that money is seed money & the rainy day fund. We have cut back and hunkered down for a long seige so to speak. I turned of the electric at my sales lot & shop to save a $100 per month. If I go there and need electric I crank up a generator. Its apparent the economy is faltering. Very few frieght trucks drive past anymore used to be several dozen per day. I can sell eqiptment two times per year. Once in the spring when the farmers borrow their money to put in the crop and in the fall after they harvest and sell their crop. There just isnt any extra money in the budget for most folks.
I think I see your problem, I never sold a damn thing either when the store was closed.

You can always fall back on that equipment sales though with all this row crop production in the hills.

That no man has said in the last 80 years.

Anyone that is not inline with their independent view, well their just a Liberal.
Think Rush, or Hannity or Michael Savage, or any of the others will tell you anything different.
Not as long as they have their minions making them rich following their B.S., you won't.
Billy's words are what caused me to call him a liberal:
"I didn't like Romney ether I liked Bill Clinton didn't like G.W.Bush liked John McCain didn't like Serra Palin."
What else would one conclude from a statement like that?

Big sign out front with phone number. Ive never kept regular buisness hours at that sales lot. And The phone was always ringing and sales being made before obama. then things just petered out. and to boot i was driving semi truck part time. the truck driving job petered out also. That truck hasnt moved or been licensed in a year. The same sign with phone number with my mini storage. A customer calls and I come meet with them. That the best type of buisness to own. Something you dont have to babysit. something that dont keep you tied down. things like a selfservice car wash or laundromat. Of a filling station that just takes credit or debit cards. No attendant and employee wages to rob profit. We have no debt and wont borrow to keep a buisness going. In 66 and just might sign up and draw social security next week.

And in case you haven't heard we hit the debt ceiling today 16.4 trillion. I bet you just can't wait to get that first paycheck and see how much smaller, Just remember your spender in chief could have stopped this instead he just created a bigger mess than he has already made.

What are you saying? That I only see one side? I beg to differ. But then you don't know me well enough to know that I have applauded and condemned both sides where and when it was deserved. I have been called a liberal here on Topix. I have also been called a right-winger.

I agree. I never said I supported the Patriot Act.

"So what your saying is it all should be "YOUR" way or nothing..."
No, I'm saying if it goes against the Constitution, there are no compromises. That IS what makes this a free country.
