Out of business…out of time
The heartbreak is palpable. The devastation is overwhelming. People have worked so hard all their lives in order to build businesses and employ others. And now it’s gone. The sad reality is that President Obama and his policies have destroyed these small businesses.

We closed ours down in 2010. The writing was on the wall. If Obama had not been re-elected we were planning on starting up again. I know how these people feel. They have put in the hours to build and grow, most dedicated people I know. The small businesses they built generated 2/3 of the jobs and drove the economy. The loons on the left say these people are doing it for “revenge”. Not true, none of us are willingly giving up the work of a lifetime. The businesses we’ve built are “our babies”. They are the reason we stay awake nights, work 12 hours a day, and sacrifice to keep going. Most of us have given up our paychecks to keep our business afloat and to keep our workers paid. We’ve paid our dues and then some. All the ideology in the world will not keep any of us in business and scapegoating will not change the reality of our situation. You made your choice, now we’ve made ours. The money train is over.
Democrats need to do some soul searching of their own. From Commentary Magazine
Barack Obama ushered in America’s first large-scale experiment in personality-cult politics. The experiment continues apace. Obama got reelected because he enjoys a degree of personal popularity disconnected from his record. No modern president has ever been returned to office with employment figures and right-track-wrong-track numbers as poor as those Obama has achieved.
and this…… Many businesses are not even feasible at all in this economic environment. Many small businesses had been holding out hope that somehow this election might turn things around and make it possible for them to keep going, but when Obama won it was kind of like the straw that broke the camel’s back.
We rejected a man of virtue and honor, talented and experienced for an ideologue who is tearing our country apart. While our country bleeds Obama golfs, gives another campaign style speech, and heads off to Asia.
The Carnival of Fools will continue apace until the scammers have picked every pocket on the midway and the fools, who laugh and giggle over their win, see the light of day and realize the cost of extreme ideology making promises that can’t be kept.
The Democrats have built themselves a pyramid scheme of Babel and it’s fools, suckers and marks all the way down. This is their Carny Nation and it only sustains itself by demanding greater levels of stupidity from its followers. The worse the storm grows, the dumber and trashier the base of its pyramid grows as vaccination against sudden conclusions from outside.
Popular culture, the media and politics becomes one. A great white noise machine of light and sound, carnival lights, smells and sounds, men throwing flaming torches in the air, shouts and cries, rap stars, memes, ladies of the evening, stars, banners, slogans, cheers and anything else that will keep the fools from realizing that the time is five minutes after five and the time is coming for the scammers to slink away into the night with their ill gotten loot and for the suckers who thought they were scammers and the marks who thought they were cons to clutch their carbon offsets and food stamps and raise their eyes dazedly as the sunrise exposes the tawdriness of the carnival, the false front stalls, the empty baskets and the last drabs of greasepaint on their hands.
There comes a time when the makers and builders have had enough of the takers and their ever expanding demands…we are reaching that point in time now. It is not in their best interest to continue producing and hiring to have it all taken by the scammers…..Atlas is Shrugging.
