Simply put, the myopic views expressed in this post is the very reason we are stymied in this recession. It's moving slowly forward and out of it. But that's thanks to companies who have decided to start hiring again paying employees better wages and in turn those employees are able to purchase consumer goods from other companies.

Oh and BTW, if you are sold out before a half a fiscal year has passed, isn't that a clue to increase your productivity and manufacture more of your products? Wouldn't that put more money in your pocket in the end or do you have some bs reason for that?

It is theft via the Govt, which you want more of.

You complain that CEOs have such a cushy lifestyle, yet you stated you are unwilling to do what is needed to achieve their level.

Lazy and envious. Plain and simple.

Uhhh, we are not growing economically because Business does not want to expend because of Govt regulation.
Maybe get some real life experience in running a business, and less time forum hopping on Socialist based crap.

If I increase my product line to say 258 units, that brings in an additional $35k a year. If I hire someone, then that extra revenue stream was just erased, along with additional costs of employment. So, an employee being paid $35k a year, actually costs my company close to $55k a year to employee. I would then need to increase productivity by 100 units, just to cover the cost of 1 employee.

Again, your lack of knowledge in this realm speaks volumes.

Look, we can go back and forth until our posts are removed. I'll tell you again, you have no idea what you're talking about. You can't understand because of your mindset. I can understand where you are coming from though. I'm told I was less infantile than most children, but being a homo sapien, I have the capacity to know where it comes from.

Removed for what exactly???

You envy someone that has more then you. If you didn't, you would not be interested in what they make and what they have.

You do protest too much I believe.

The mods usually remove posts where there is a constant back and forth. Your unending attempt to insult me would be a good reason to remove our "discussion"

Once again you say, "You're just jealous". I'm sorry you're not aware of how infantile a response that is.

Yes, I protest. I'm sorry you think it's too much. I've also been told to stop defending myself
Really, if you want me to shut up, you'll have to get physical and win.

Okay then. There is no insult.
Go and actually read the definition of and from where jealousy comes from.

Oh, I shall go cry in the corner I guess.
Regardless if you think it is infantile, it still fits/ SO.........

Are you going to discuss, or just singularly explain one thing or another to yourself?

Address the issues, otherwise move on already.

You have failed to even address 3 items.

Ok, let's play. On what 3 items do you need clarification?

EDIT: I'll have to reply later.

I would like to correct one assumption in your post. We never worked for the government nor do our friends or grown children. Not much of that type of work around here. My husband was a laborer, I was a CNA, our kids do labor also. We picked up and moved many, many times following construction. We did not mind living pay day to pay day and we made it. But our grown kids can't even make it to pay day.

I never said you did work for the Govt.
As for work as a whole, guess you moved to a bad area. Might be time to leave for greener pastures.

We are retired now. We moved around for 30 years following construction. I hope you make it that long and hope that life is not as hard for you as it was for us and now our kids. I don't see them even being able to think about retiring one day.

Okay, so what am I supposed to do about it? Honestly.
Should I just jump for joy when the Govt forces me to hand over even more money??
Should I remove "x" amount from my monthly budget and mail you guys a check?
Or, how about if I go from 60 hour work weeks, to 70 hour work weeks to make up the difference I pay in taxes??

Or.....how about you work with YOUR kids to resolve the problem.

I don't know you, nor do I know what is best for you. That is your life pursuit.
I know what is best for me, and where MY money is best spent.

What else do you want from me??

Been thinking about this last night.
I understand that Socialists depend on group think and the collective thought, but you honestly can't take little old Macman on your own??

Sir, I do not want anything from you or anyone. I honestly don't know what you are talking about except that you have confused yourself with assumptions and judgments. I have never been a single mother, long term unemployed, in jail, and never in 62 years have I taken welfare, I have never been the kind of american you hate. But I have seen how corporations and rich have raped and pillaged the whole planet in the name of capitalism. When we become a socialist country, because we will have to to survive, your kind will have no one to blame but your greed.

So, you don't want anything from me, except my money/wealth, as that is what Socialism is based off of.

Yeah, no confusion there.

Name one thing you have created all on your own that giants before you did not already create and give to all of us? What if God had never wanted to share his universe with no one but himself? You and I would not have the privilege of speaking and seeing this debate. You and I would not have the privilege of sharing and making a better world for all. It can be done, and humans like you will be dealt with by God or evolution. Too many are hungry.

What does your rant have to do with you wanting of Socialism, which is based off of taking from me to give to others?
