So, even though the economy ended up pretty good under Obama, it appears like a lot of businesses were maybe not hiring or spending as much as they could have to protest Obama, like a tantrum. Now that they have a Republican that they like it looks like they are trying hard to make republican policies look better than they are. Case in point that carrier deal that apparently was quite exaggerated. Now we have companies like Walmart putting on a show of increasing some worker pay while laying off other people so that they aren't actually spending more on workers.

Other companies like Boeing are just laying people off, hardly the greatest economy ever like Trump claims. In spite of this so-called great economy underemployed and contract workers are still a much higher percentage of the workforce than they used to be and people are still losing or not being offered benefits that they need, and it's still hard to get a good job.

I think business is actively colluding with Trump to scam people into believing conservative policies are good for them when they are terrible in the long run.

they are trying to manipulate public opinion through mind control by positively reinforcing certain philosophies

that's doesn't mean what they are reinforcing is actually a bad thing or what they have done is bad but that's what they are doing

Yeah, it MUST be collusion. It can't POSSIBLY be that Trump policies of cutting taxes, increasing incentives, reduced reliance on food stamps, and discouraging job exodus overseas has stimulated the economy reduced unemployment and created a more positive business environment. If we only had Hillary we know we would have had higher taxes--she promised! Damn Trump anyway.

Heheheheh.


Irony: a state of affairs or an event that seems deliberately contrary to what one expects and is often amusing as a result.

Yes, we're happy to see the economy doing well. Trump didn't bring the end of the markets.

Are you serious? Companies lay people off ALL THE TIME. You know what they don't do all the time? Give company-wide bonuses and wage increases.

Errr, no. They are just making heaps of cash because Trump is a businessman and he has let America do business. Make the most of it and get strong. You have been very poorly for a while. Lots of vampires were sucking your blood.

Obama leveled so many INDUSTRIES with regulations that I can't believe you would even ask that, OP.

What alternate dimension are we in where 'collusion' is confused with 'business confidence', 'market forces' and 'reduced regulation' ?

Short answer: no.

Long answer: no.

That's not how it works.

Unless, of course, you mean how corporate lobbyists buy congress/government.

so we have the standard:

Business are evil and greedy

but what I am reading is:

Business took off time from being greedy, to be more evil towards Obama.

Does that mean, in capitalism

Evil > Greed

The sad part is that mostly all the new people that are entering back into the workforce are being told either work or lose your foodstamps, the problem here is that most are going back to work with about 24 hours to 32 hours a week. Not a strong outlook for the many.

You want to censor non-conformity?

The problem with your scenario is why would they? That leads to a fairly obvious answer is that Trump's policies will produce more profit than Obama's.

So we're back to square one. Trump's policies are better than Obama's to corporate bottom line.

Many lay-offs are planned well in advance and nothing in Trump's policies will change normal ups and downs of the business world.

I'd assume that the lay-offs would be deeper sans Trump's actions on regulatory restriction and the like, but I don't know that for a fact.

I honestly believe your over-thinking this.

Colluding???...Do you mean he has met with or sent word to all the businesses that gave out raises or bonuses due to the tax reforms or relaxing of regulations? Like they've conspired together....all of them...the infamous "They" and Trump. Are they also a secret society too? If you've made it this far have you realised your OP is kinda delusional?

theres actually a bigger reason most physical stores, malls, strip malls, etc are doing poorly and it has nothing to do with trump and has been going on for many years now. it has to do with companies not able to partake in asset seizure prevention. when u cant even approach a thief and the thieves know it u suddenly cant protect your product from leaving the store shelves without being paid for. its become so bad u can go on ebay and social media and find the people who steal for a living, who will post where they are going and to give them a list of what u need so they can try and steal it.

this is a far cry from what it was like when i was a kid growing up and security would lay u out in a moments notice for stealing anything and not have one consequence come to them and rightly so. nowadays u talk to a thief or touch them and the company is getting sued and your getting fired.

Just as much as the last admin. colluded with big pharma and the health insurance co.'s. At least this time I wont get fined if I dont want to pay for their service. On a plus side people get jobs and not loose them.
