- Hysterical Rant Against Business Owners

A typically crazy MSNBC bubblehead rants about the idea that a business owner is considered a "risk taker".

This is typical of the leftist mindset. They always seem to manage to get cause and effect wrong. She says that she believes "being poor" is risky. She's right it is. But if we take money from business owners and give it to poor people, that doesn't make tings less risky for them.

The reason being poor is risky is because of the behavior of all the poor people around you. If they all acted with the same restraint as rich people, it wouldn't be a problem. And if all you do to help them is write them a check, then you aren't actually helping them at all. You're subsidizing their "poor person' behavior, and taking away some of their personal incentive to improve their lot. In effect, you're really only building a class of 'sub citizen' who are denied the rational incentives that dominate the behavior of rich people. (Which many on the right think is the left's grand design anyway.)

The only thing that helps the poor avoid the risks of poverty is providing them with a way to learn how to not be poor anymore. That means rewarding those with the most initiative to change their circumstance, not the ones with the least initiative as the left would have us do. When the government sets out to weave a safety net by punishing the productive and rewarding the sedentary, all they end up weaving is a net that traps the poor exactly where they are.

And if Melissa Harris-Perry doesn't think business owners are risk takers, then maybe she wouldn't mind giving up her tenure at Tulane, and basing her entire financial future (including her pension) on the sales of her books, and the performance of her students. Lets see how she feels about risk takers when she has as much on the line as the rest of us do. Until then she should shut her yap on this particular topic, which she clearly knows absolutely zero about.

God help this country...I have heard this answer 3x today so it must have been sent out by email

Democratic Gov. Martin O’Malley of Maryland, who is considered a possible contender for president in 2016, bucked other Obama surrogates on Sunday, saying that the country was not better off now than it was four years ago.

On CBS's Face the Nation, host Bob Schieffer asked: “Can you honestly say that people are better off today than they were four years ago?”

Responded O’Malley: “No, but that's not the question of this election. The question, without a doubt, we are not as well off as we were before George Bush brought us the Bush job losses, the Bush recession, the Bush deficits, the series of desert wars -- charged for the first time to credit cards, the national credit card.”

Quipped Schieffer: “George Bush is not on the ballots.”

Knowing this is THE question that mitt will use over and over.But now its not the question of this election...Sorry bubba but it is.Get ready to hear this answer for 70 days.

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Sunday shows Mitt Romney attracting support from 48% of voters nationwide, while President Obama earns 44% of the vote. Three percent (3%) prefer some other candidate, and five percent (5%) are undecided.

Just prior to this past week's Republican National Convention, Romney trailed the president by two. Today’s four-point advantage confirms that the GOP hopeful has received the expected convention bounce.
You all have a good safe Labor DAY..Gonna get nasty out .

Tom is correct. This woman has zero skin in the game. When the rest of us fail, it is on us. When the people in the ivory tower fail, again it is on us.
Furthermore, the argument could be made that if you don't pay taxes, you don't vote. No taxation without representation. But no representation without taxation.

When Bill Clinton said "Obama would have been carrying our bags a few years ago"

Newstrack India‎ - 34 minutes ago

How do fight it when it took Hiliary apart in weeks...If you respond then the left says you must feel guilty. If you dont respond then you must feel guilty.Ill say subtley that Bubba is going to outshine BHO and steal the night

The Clinton-Obama feud is the worst-kept secret in the Democratic Party. It traces back to the bruising 2008 primary campaign, when Obama’s surrogates lambasted Bill and Hillary for being “racists” and a Clinton aide said of Obama that he “embraces the politics of trash.” The animosity still stirs such deep emotions that a year ago Clinton held a secret meeting of friends and political advisers at his home in Chappaqua and urged his wife to challenge Obama for the party’s presidential nomination in 2012.

I’ve heard more from Bush, asking for my advice, than I’ve heard from Obama,” my sources quoted Clinton as saying. “I have no relationship with the president — none whatsoever. Obama doesn’t know how to be president. He doesn’t know how the world works. He’s incompetent. He’s an amateur!”

Keith... great comment.

also... 1. That chick is nuts.
2. She a tyrant.
3. She's urban.

If those people can stay in the cities, okay. I know they want to impose their view on everyone but it just seems like out here in the boondocks, that shit just will never transpire.

Here's to living in the sticks!
