Thanks for the explaining that. I was curious.
I check in and read the messages but work has been slammed. Opening two new facilities in next 60 days. One in Richmond VA & the other just west of Hickory. Will have a 3rd DC (distribution center) in Knoxville by the end of 2012. Business is good but it leaves little time for "life". Hope all is well with you and yours.
Thanks for asking and everything is going okay for my group. Business is picking up somewhat for our business, you know what it's like, feast or famine. Sounds like things are on the upswing for your business. Good luck and drop us a line every now and then.

American public schools need to go. They do not promote good discipline or order. They present an environment of lying, dishonesty and ignorance. It does do a good job of provide contact of drugs, laziness and reliance on the state. Drop-out rate is close to 50 percent in some public schools. Some kids are push aside because teachers do not want to take the time with them. Other teacher are more worried about their pay. The ideas of a greater Socialist system.

I don't know about the conservative part, but Romney sure has the edge in greed. I don't think he needs your money . When he took over just one company, Georgetown Steel, he made $58 million dollars by firing 1750 workers and running the company through bankruptcy. Then just for fun Romney took over Holsen Photo and fired over 150 more workers, sold the assets , threw them the keys and declared bankruptcy again. That is also his business model for our nation..
<quoted text>
Romney created or saved far more jobs than he eliminated at Bain Capital. However, Romeney's main responsibility at Bain Capital was not to create or save jobs but to maximize the return for his investors. Look up the definition of "fiduciary". T, your economic ignorance is profound.

Ftrst of all, I am not your "buddy." Leaving out inconvenient facts that do not support your agenda is dishonest. Bain Capital invested $100 million in the steel company, Eight years elapsed between then and the bankruptcy, the company was going into bankruptcy when it was purchased, the company went out of business along with several other steel companies around that same time due to inexpensive imports mostly from Japan. If the number 58 million is correct, that indicates a 42 million loss. I know nothing aboutr the photo compaany. I would also add that Romney is not my 1st or 2nd choice, but it is what it is. I would have chosen Herman Cain running with Newt as vice.

I forgot to mention that Romney had left Bain two years before the the Bankruptcy. Plug those facts into the scenario by TSF and assess his honesty objectively.

Tell that to the 1800 people who lost their jobs at Georgetown steel and Holsen Photo. Those 1800 "talking points" have names. I bet they will not be voting for Mr "I love to fire people" Romney.
So you are paying attention? What country did "Mitt" (not his real name) bank the profits from this episode of vulture capitalism? Hint: It wasn't the USA.

Mass. lost 40,000 manufacturing jobs while Romney was governor. Then Romney outsourced state jobs to India and buried the state under a mountain of debt. Much of that debt was so he could give tax breaks to the rich , including himself. So what has he promised to do on "day 1" ? You guessed it, more tax breaks to the rich.

Massachuesetts is the most liberal state in the union. Manufacturing has been leaving that state for decades. The strongly Democrat legislature set spending and tax policies; you should know that unless you're ignorant or maybe just intellectually dishonest.

Looks like Obama just stole Rubio's thunder. Republicans are outraged. Is it because Obama beat them to the draw or because Romney agrees with Obama?

Romney has promised to cut taxes for the rich but now, even Neil Bush admits that the only possible way out of this debt/deficit problem is to raise revenue AND cut entitlements.

Again, have you heard of Solyndra? Obama loaned John Corzine (the man he said he called when things were a mess) enough money to float everybody in the U.S. with solar panels to get this company up and going. Obama was right, call John Corzine when things are a mess because he will forget what he did with the money the government loaned Solyndra and then the company goes bankrupt and you've got a bigger mess. This bankrupt company has Obama's name all over, if not literally, because he loaned the money, showed off his big, new green initiative company, once the company was floundering made sure the government secured more loans and it still went bankrupt. This makes me think Obama can't do any better than Romney because more than the state of MA and Bain, we the whole U.S. are still on the hook for the money given/stolen by Solyndra.

Romney has promised tax reform which is badly needed. Our tax code is hugely complex and and inefficent at its core purpose which is to collect revenue. Every time a Republican president has agreed to raise taxes in exchange for spending cuts, the tax increases happened but the spending cuts did not. It happened to Reagan and to Bush 41. Bush 41's tax increase broke his no new taxes pledge and helped throw us into recession. It also cost him a second term.

<quoted text>Obamacare is meant to be an politically acceptable step to single payer. If single payer ever happens you will see a dramatic drop in health care availability. No one is required to practice medicine and if providers are not compensated commensurate with their education and training they will choose some other vocation.
I understand the republican theory.
And a single payer system does not need lower any pay for doctors.
A single payer system does not stop you from buying regular insurance and going to a doctor that does not accept the government system.

And thanks for confirming Obama care is just a compromise to the republicans. So when you bash it, remember it is not really what democrats want so much as the republicans.

Do you think a single payer system would hurt the economy?

I think it would keep a lot more money in the pockets of average Joe. They would have good preventative health and thus be more able to work productively.
It would certainly cost business less. Which seems to be your main concern.
