Spare me this bullshit.

All this does is move the poverty line up. Everything will be more expensive, the dollar buy less than it's ever purchased and people below the poverty line will remain below the poverty line.

Meanwhile, everyone that was right at the poverty line is going to drop below it if they ever bother to recalculate it.

Again - the effectiveness of this garbage depends on a single central thesis: That millions of Americans are trying to support families on minimum wage jobs.

This is a myth. Period. It's been proven time and time again that the vast majority of minimum wage labrorers are either people that have just started or part-time labor. Primary bread winners are not operating on minimum wage, they just aren't. Those that are won't stay there long and even those that do simply aren't worth creating rampant inflation that will damage the purchasing power of every American to.

It's blatant pandering and there is zero benefit to the poor huddled masses yearning to breath free. It's just more bullshit from the King of all bullshit.

The only question left I have of this man is whether he's actually this dumb or if he truly does not give a shit. At this point I'm confident it's the latter. He's going to be the populist messiah for 4 more years and pray that being a rock-star gives him the untouchable sheen that Kennedy got as history judges him.

I'm trying to, but man this is a bad day for this kind of crap with me. We had to slash budgets and still decided to let go of 4 people with about 15 years of service time between them with us. 2 of them have families, one's a young girl that's been with us since college and got a nice salaried job (y'know, after coming on board as one of those minimum wage workers) and the 4th is just a damn nice guy. I sat in a room with 2 other guys and we fought for a day. And ultimately, after all the fighting, this really was the best we could do. We all took massive budget cuts in our departments to save another person or two (which will come out of our part-time labor force and end up being work back on our plates).

And to have done that so that we could eek out (I shit you not) $2,500 in projected profit in a company that generated $4 million in revenue last year...only to find out that this asshole's political garbage could make it to where none of it was good enough. I've just had it. It's staggering to me.

**** me I am tired of this man. I've disagreed with his politics but I've avoided reaching a level of personal animus and vitriol with him. I've tried to steer clear of questioning his motives and simply approach this with the belief that he and I simply disagree on the path to economic efficiency. Frankly, I can't manage it anymore. At this point, I harbor genuine personal animosity towards our President. It's the first time in my life I've ever been here and it's because he is simply militantly ignorant when it comes to how his policies will actually impact small business owners.

If he doesn't get this passed, it won't be for lack of effort on his part. He's trying to **** me and hundreds of thousands of people just like me. With any luck, the House will prevent it.

All this tells me is that the debt is spiraling out of control and to keep the poor from rioting they will raise the minimum wage. You get more money, some get fired and everything costs more. Thank you Federal Reserve!

I rarely spend time in DC but this deserves a

My direct mail business is made up of a lot of mom and pop business owners and generally by the end of a work day and touching base with my customers I am ****ing depressed.

I only stick my head in when I'm on the main board and notice that the most recent topic is one that interests me.

I hadn't seen the SOTU (because after spending all day in meetings, I still had work to do so I was there until 9). I hadn't heard a thing about this until I saw the header on the main board.

And I've sat here sipping a pre-bed drink, watching H2 and stewing over the fact that our President would very clearly do this if he had his druthers. Is there anything I can do that will be enough for this guy? We've taken a bunch of bullets thus far and this is the first round of serious cuts we've had to make. We've parried every thrust he's thrown our way but frankly there's no more fat left and we're all battle weary at this point.

There's no sense in trying to start a business in this climate and frankly there's not a hell of a lot of sense in staying in one if you can get out of it without crippling debt.

I know, very few people want to hear my whining and I understand that. But damn man - just let us breathe a little.

Well to be fair the only reason that hasn't happened in a major way yet is because every other country in the world is trying to flush their own currencies down the drain too. So far no one has 'won'...but I still like our chances.

Don't forget unemployment rates.

Staying far away from full employment is also keeping inflation rates down. So there's the good news - the unemployment that this creates will help off-set at least some of the devaluation that springs from it.

{sigh}
