No Recovery, No Jobs, Part Two

Posted by politicalpartypooper on April 28, 2010

Small businesses are dying. Why? Because Big Box Retailers dominate the market in every aspect. They receive tax cuts that small businesses don’t. They name-brand and then market products made by near-slave labor in foreign countries…and call this Capitalism.  Those same Big -Box retailers have also been responsible for driving smaller, Mom-and-Pop businesses out of business.  Convenient?  Yes.  So convenient that America is choosing to enslave ourselves to them while our government bends over backward for them.

But our current Administration wants you to know that “The Recovery” is on schedule and moving along nicely.

Small businesses in America got some help, though.  A $30 Billion bill, which Republicans wanted to filibuster, was passed to provide tax cuts for small businesses who hire people.  Considering the number of small businesses in America, that’s about $1,000 per business.  When AIG came crying to Hank Paulson, they got $150 Billion.  The mantra holds true in America; the bigger you are, the more “help” you’ll get from government.

Recovery?  Not hardly.  One in five American males is jobless.  That’s twenty percent, for the math-challenged, and that doesn’t count those who have been out of work for so long, that they no longer qualify for unemployment benefits, or for all of the small businesses that have failed.     Ω
