Obama’s Hate-Your-Boss Hotline

Barack Obama,Business,Economy,Individual Rights,Liberty,Regulation


“Get in the game,” the president instructed U.S. business leaders, in an address to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce today. As Bloomberg.com reported, this audacious president urged business to “support their country by moving cash from the sidelines into the economy,” “hiring more American workers,” and, generally “investing in this nation.” This, as Obama carves greater and greater sections out of the hide of American businesses for the assorted, unproductive oink sectors.

Just the other day, this deeply silly man “launched a new program at the Department of Labor which will refer workers who have complaints about their bosses to a toll free number at the American Bar Association, where they can get a lawyer to work on their case on a contingency fee basis.” (Via Elizabeth MacDonald of Fox Business) Yes, litigation always reduces the costs of doing business, doesn’t it?! What’s not to like in a collaboration between “the federal government and private bar” to promote “worker rights,” already covered by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and other legislation. This is how Obama is “doing his part to improve the business climate” in this country.

The meek reply to BHO’s demands from Johanna Schneider, “who directs external relations for the Business Roundtable,” will not do. “Jobs will follow demand,” she said. “Unless you see sustained demand for your product or your service, you cannot from a fiduciary standpoint invest in more employees.”

Business leaders will have to learn to speak the language of individual/natural rights, and link the rights of property and freedom of association to prosperity and peace. Unless they sound morally indignant about the violation of their rights, parasitical collectivists such as BHO will continue to make light of and mock the “incredible pressure to cut costs and keep margins up,” as the Idiot-in-Chief put it.

    Big Business decided to give up that language after the New Deal massacre they underwent. Sure, a lot of that talk was hypocritical and self-serving before, but at least it was there. Nowadays, only the collusion with Big Government remains – not the language of freedom.

    Say, I work for the Federal Government so my BOSS is Barack Hussein Obama – who do I get to call???

    The government has stolen the harvest, and now they want us to voluntarily give up the gleanings that are left.

    Mr. “Profits to Earnings Ratio” never ceases to amaze with his own words. He’s a performance artist. His task — how much collectivism can I spew before the broad swath of the American electorate figures out I know nothing.

    “Deeply silly man,” is the best, most succinct description I’ve read of the president yet.

    Expect more like him in the future. No doubt you’ve noticed something about this generation of the mis-educated. Their thought processes are… well weird.

    They seem incapable of recognizing what a formal argument is: a set of statements, one of which is said to neccessarily follow from the others.
    They have no notion of the proposition “follows from” (the foundation of logic) at all. They think, if they can be said to think at all. in cliches.

    They will learn though, never fear. When the Gods of the Copybook Headings, “with terror and slaughter return.”

    I’m starting a business myself and my excitement is always tempered as I research all the demands the State places on it. I’m not planning on licensing it, although it will be paying taxes – some fights are simply too big. I dread it being taken away for some simple oversight or when I have to stand on principle over some minor issue that the State will not bend on. Should it become viable at all, I will have plans to move it and myself to another country. If anyone has any websites/books on running a principled business in the current American climate, I’d greatly appreciate the information.
