Face it. If you run a business there is nowhere to hide. Deciding who to hire is risky. Deciding who to keep is dangerous, too. Business owners have become pariahs and whipping boys for Democrats creating worries over discrimination against a growing number of their favorite causes, including immigrant workers and employees with gender identity problems you never wanted to know about.
Deep down, we always knew it was true. Our votes are all that matters and votes from minorities are the best kind. It just hurts to have our noses rubbed in it by our own party.
The biggest abuse indulged by Democrats under Obama has been picking groups to benefit from party generosity that redefined the concept of what a minority is whenever it was advantageous for the Democratic cause.
Barack Obama denies accusations that he is engaging in class warfare, but as he intensifies his fight to stay employed he is turning to unions as a replacement for his Buffett Rule tax hike. The president is joined by other members of his administration who insist that the middle class is unable to get a fair shake in the workplace without unions.
Fines, taxes, fees, penalties, regulations, blame, and threats. This is how the president shows American manufacturers that he cares. When Mr. Obama discussed manufacturing jobs from a Seattle Boeing plant yesterday he wasted little time bringing up tax breaks received by companies sending jobs overseas, a threat and needless reminder of the enthusiasm with which his administration wields its anti-business stick.
The Democratic Party has made a mockery of our democracy. Under Barack Obama’s tutelage, America’s version of representative government was effortlessly turned into a farce. Unions and illegal immigrants are emblematic of the power wielded by undeserving minorities. There are over 312 million people in the U.S.,
Unions comfortable with their hold over the government workforce, and optimistic about the president’s planned “Winning the Future” spending package, should be very nervous about what the debt ceiling conflict means for their future. Organized labor has powerful friends in Washington helping to spread the mantra of worker exploitation, but this may not be enough to stop the fallout from the debt crisis.
During the darkest days of 2009, Washington Democrats spent our money while puzzling over why small businesses refused to create jobs. The president had offered help. Bills were passed. Lots of money was spent. The SBA got involved. Banks were put on notice.
