<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.

Thinking or acting for oneself in a manner in which which others disagree is not independent enough.
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?

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).

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.

Your totally awesome president thought congress worked so hard that he signed by exective order each one gets a pay raise plus staff and especially that useless do nothing joe biden. Get ready folks the spending is going to go through the roof after all our taxes are going up, So our spender in chief has got money to burn. 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.

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..........
LMAO
I'm not going to throw the tenant out. It's one of the only avenues tax payers like myself have to get some of the money we pay in back. The problem is that it isn't near enough compared to what I pay in. I will never have to go on food stamps and I think no one is below me but I don't pretend that their circumstances are not, for the most part, self inflicted. That just rubs ideological liberals like yourself the wrong way because you like to pretend that ones bad circumstances can be blamed on the successful behavior of another thus the successful behavior needs to be penalized and given to the one in the bad circumstance. I certainly don't see it that way so you see me as greedy, though nothing could be farther from the truth.
