Refuting Obama's Attack on Small Business


Recommended Posts

American Thinker:

Our favorite restaurant fell by the wayside and closed. Mary and I saw a new sign on the building and pulled our car at the entrance to see if they were open for business. The new owner, a middle aged Asian gentleman, rushed outside to greet us.

He said his grand opening was three weeks away. He then enthusiastically began promoting his new restaurant; explaining how it was going to be so much better than the previous restaurant. His passion was infectious. Mary and I left excited about giving his new venture a try.

I thought, this guy is what America is all about. Obamanomics has wreaked havoc on small business. Still, this man is willing to take the risk and go for it
Folks, I cannot begin to tell you how much it frosts me that Obama uses class envy to portray small business owners such as this restaurateur as selfish greedy bad guys
The liberal mindset reasoning that the boss is always the bad guy baffles me. Approximately half of new small businesses fail within the first two years. With all of the silly and outrageous nanny government cost incurring regulations, the failure rate is rapidly increasing.

So, when a small business owner survives the maze of control freak intrusive regulations, meets payroll and all of the other challenges which come with being the boss, Obama believes it is evil for the business owner to take home a check much larger than his workers.

Well excuse me Mr. President, but the boss took the risk, providing employment for employees who can simply punch out at five o'clock and forget about the business until the next day. The boss, perceived by liberals to be selfish, greedy and evil, is mentally, physically or emotionally engaged with his business 24/7.

A liberal posted on my Facebook wall, "You conservative Christians forget that Jesus was a socialist." Apparently, this person is unfamiliar with Jesus' Parable of the Talents.snip

If Jesus had been a socialist, why are socialists angry at those who believe in God? Why would Jesus teach about how we can have a personal relationship with God if he believed that people are capital and all capital is owned by the state? Wouldn't that mean that this commenter believes that Jesus thought that people are things?


The surest way to know that you have created God in your own image is for you to think that God hates all of the people that you do (H/T The Anchoress).


We are not perfect and God offers us all forgiveness, redemption and salvation.

Pope John Paul ll Stand on Socialism


Where did Pope John Paul II stand on economic issues? The same place he stood on all other issues involving the well-being of the human person. He favored the rights and dignity of all people, their freedom to work and create, an environment of security that permits the flourishing of families and communities of faith. He had faith in freedom and no love for the grand secular faith in the state. Thus did this pope understand something that a surprising number of pundits and intellectuals have yet to fully understand, namely that human dignity implies non-socialist political and economic structures, which are commonly known as the business economy.


He was a fierce critic of socialism and worked to bring about its end in Eastern Europe. He saw the merit of the institutional arrangements commonly called capitalistic: protection of private property, the freedom of trade, the enforcement of contract, the right of economic initiative, and the social merit of a growing economy essential to support a rising population. If the last two decades can be seen as a time of unraveling structures of central planning and advancing structures of global trade, this pope can be seen as a champion of these precise trends and their humanistic merit.snip
