In response to ComingLiberalCrackup's comment:
Liberals dont understand that the purpose of business is to make a profit, by providing needed goods or services efficiently.
Business purpose is not to serve the State and bail out the current President's policy failure, by hiring employees they cant afford and dont need.
Why dont you hire 10 people, Airborne, to make the economy better? Whether you can afford it, need or can use the employees, is secondary, right?
What happened to "corporations are people too, my friend"?
Do they have any civic responsibility?
Do they owe any allegiance to the country and citizenry who helped build them and allows them to flourish?
So in the perfect whackjob wingnut world the citizens are supposed to man the parapits and expend the blood and treasure to protect the interests of these companies around the globe and in return the 'job creators' owe nothing.
They are paying both the lowest tax rates and the lowest percentage of US tax revenue in history which raises everyone else's taxes to pay for infrastructure and that strongest military in the world that you neo-cons love to squawk about but refuse to serve in.
They are now destroying American jobs so that they can import foreign workers at a much lower rate, depressing wages for everyone.
And this isn't about how many people any one company hires, it's about playing by the same rules that every small business like mine has to play by.
It's about not creating off-shore shell companies so as to avoid US taxes.
It's about not laying off American workers only to sponsor a thousand foreign visa workers to take their place at half the cost, depressing everyone's wages.
It's about not crying about "taxes" or "regulation" that companies llike me pay at double the rate of large corporations.
It's about you neo-cons pulling your nose out of the deriers of these businesses and stop feeling sorry for them and start caring about the overwhelming majority of small businesses who don't need gimmicks and shell companies to create well paying jobs and still make a legitimate profit for the owners.
It's about your ignorance in how these large corporations rape this country while you constantly help them tilt the playing field further in their favor all while blaming poor people for being poor.
It's about good citizenship and civic participation, all things that the Constitution was written to encourage but which you neo-con nitwits constantly scoff at.
I don't think we are neessarily supporting these companies. I think we are pointing out that you don't understand the motivations that would cause them to create jobs.
Bersides, the large compnaies are largely in Obama's pocket.
