Five questions that no one ever asks Republicans:

Isn't it true that hiring new workers is ALWAYS the last resort for any business?

Which one is true, that the economy is sluggish because demand is so anemic, or because rich "job creators" aren't rich enough?

Why would "job creators" hire new workers if demand still sucks for their business?

Why is a booming economy good for the President and Democrats and bad for Republicans?

Why are Republicans focusing more on abortion than jobs?

Get to the end-result of their actions.

6.) So, guy has cancer, needs radiation, can't get it, doesn't have insurance. You don't want insurance. Do you let the guy die? Is that your plan?

7.) Why do you worship the jobs' creators, if they're doing such an awful job?

8.) Why do you use one tax, the federal income tax, as the gauge of fairness? Shouldn't it be the amount of income left, after we pay ALL taxes that is the measure of how fair our system is? Doesn't taxing dollars over a certain amount, even if the percentage is really, really high, actually make our system MORE fair?

43. They don't know what rage is

I've never seen a conservative manage to become genuinely angry about anything. They'll scream and shout, and some will even hop up and down. but they don't actually have anger. Anger is the result of injustice, and the Republicans have had their asses polished for so long, they have no idea what that's like.

No, what they have is hate. Hate can look like anger, but it's not. They do not want justice, they have no wrongs begging to be righted. They just want to spread spite and cause harm to others.

Rage is what happens when you read of two teenagers being murdered for loving each other. Rage is what happens when you hear of a Korean War vet starving to death on the street. Rage is what's left when you see the world you're set to inherit is a wasteland. Rage is when your friend's mother dies from treatable cancer for lack of money, but there's plenty of money to kill Arabs with. Rage is when you work yourself ragged, and your bank account only ever moves backwards. Rage is what happens when you have to choose between feeding your children and keeping a roof over their head.

They don't know what rage is.

47. They have rage all right, but not toward things you mention.

Those things don't cause rage in a soulless, conservative brain. What they have is misguided rage based on whatever phony outrage they have been spoon-fed that particular week. It's a self-serving rage that begins as hatred. Then all it takes is for the spin merchants to just poke the soulless conservative with a hot stick and see what happens.

8. I have a fox-watching ...

(though he denies it), rightwing, christian, conservative small business owning family friend. During our family outings, we inevitably stumble into political decisions ... he HATES the government, especially the Federal government (even though 90% of his business can be traced to Stimulus dollars) and he HATES, HATES, HATES President Obama.

My friend's most frequent complaints are the typical fox-fare ... taxes are too high, there are too many regulations and there is too much "economic uncertainty", these three things all combine to stop businesses from job creating.

My stock responses are to ask: "Name one regulation that has prevented you from hiring the workers you need to complete a job? What level of tax cuts would encourage you to hire someone when you don't have the jobs to keep your current crew busy? And, wouldn't that economic uncertainty be resolved if the gop would just gave President Obama everything he wants ... Wouldn't you be able to plan knowing that this policy or that policy was going to go into effect, whether you agree with the policy or not?"

This usually results in a story about some local government bureaucrat that held his company to the precise letter of some obscure regulation. Though I suspect that the stories are either, untrue, or more likely the bureaucrats response to my friend's "I'm soooo much smarter than you, you lowly government worker" attitude, I just remind him that he still hasn't answered the job creation question.

That usually results in his telling more stories, more loudly.

I have concluded that critical thinking skills are far less important to the operation of a small business than a marketable skill and self-delusion.

49. People forget what the 90s were like

I imagine that if the Rs accused President Obama of being a drug dealer, and having someone killed, it would be immediately assumed because he is black.

Except of course, as you know, they did this to Bill Clinton.

People forget how dreadfully mean they were to him. How mean they were to Hillary and Chelsea.

They spent tens of millions and countless time and energy investigating him, until they dug up Lewinski - basically it was 7 years of this Fast and Furious BS. Jesus, the investigated the darn pet cat's fan mail and christmas lists, and that is not a lie.

This is what they do - if it were Al Gore, John Kerry, Howard Dean, Hillary Clinton, it would not matter.

In fact, part of why I supposed President Obama, is that he is such a nice and exceptionally cool guy, that I held out hope they would not be as nuts as they normally would be, but alas, they are ...

21. Why would so-called job creators invest in any business

when it's a much better return on investment simply to give the money to Republicans for yet another tax cut?

If tax cuts for the highest earners actually worked, shouldn't the Bush tax cuts have inaugerated a new golden age of economic stability, security and growth?

Why cut taxes for people who have already arrived? What they do with their money is to give it to smart folks on Wall Street who shuffle it around so that it makes more money without actually contributing to the real economy.

If the economy is so bad, why are corporate profits and balance sheets the best in history?

If corporate profits and balance sheets the best in history, why don't they hire people?

33. My "Explain this to me Like I'm a Complete Idiot" series asks questions such as these.

I don't suspect I'll get a logical or even a competent answer, but it's fun to ask.

Joseph Stiglitz kind of put in layman's terms why tax cuts are their canard du jour . . . any wealthy person with wealth will gravitate their assets to where they AREN'T taxed, whether it's Profit over hiring or short-term speculation as opposed to long-term growth.

Repub investors/businesspeople are all about "rent-seeking" activity because they're encouraged to be. With regulation whittled and Top Marginal Tax Rates at constant 75+ year lows, they're not going to invest in their businesses. They're making a profit without those pesky "hiring" or "putting the wealth back in their businesses" things, and they can sell this sham to the useful idiots they're firing by making them sniff Horatio Alger Cocaine. It's FLAWLESS!

35. If GOP ideas are not good for the economy, why should any person other than a Republican

 

want to adopt them?

If the adoption of wage-lowering, anti-union, let's-send-jobs-to-foreign-countries "free-trade" agreements is not good for the American working class, why should any person other than a Republican be in favor of adopting so-called "free-trade" agreements?

1994 - North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA)
2001 - Jordan – United States Free Trade Agreement
2004 - Australia-United States Free Trade Agreement
2004 - Chile - United States Free Trade Agreement
2004 - Singapore – United States Free Trade Agreement
2006 - Bahrain – United States Free Trade Agreement
2006 - Morocco - United States Free Trade Agreement
2006 - Oman – United States Free Trade Agreement
2007 - Peru – United States Trade Promotion Agreement
2005 - Dominican Republic–Central America Free Trade Agreement (DR-CAFTA; incl. Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, and the Dominican Republic)
2011 - Panama - United States Trade Promotion Agreement
2011 - Colombia - United States Trade Promotion Agreement
2011 - Republic of Korea (South Korea) - United States Free Trade Agreement

If you haven't heard about the ongoing work re the Trans-Pac FTA, which some are calling NAFTA on steroids, it may because it's not going to be good for you. Again, why should any person other than a Republican favor this?

He spends so much time listening to faux, rush, etc. He sends money to all of the teabaggers that ask for it, and for what? To make life better for his children/grandchildren? He relies on the the government programs that he is fighting to relieve us of. Its just crazy.

Why would "job creators" hire new workers if demand still sucks for their business?

I've run into the "Cut my taxes and I'll hire more"-type of business owners and I laugh and ask "Why?" Why would you hire more employees if your business is stagnant?

They look baffled and will then pull out the ol' (and overused) "Well, we can agree to disagree" bullshit.

Yeah, like they're going to hire another worker with their tax savings... They must think they're talking to children...

1. As a businessman, do you believe it is the primary duty of a CEO to minimize expenses and maximize profits?

(You will almost always get an enthusiastic "YES!")


2. Do you agree that payroll and related costs are among the greatest expenses faced by most businesses?

(They can't deny it, but the "Yes" is not so enthusiastic...)


3. So would you then say that the preferred method for reducing payroll expenses is to A) move high paying positions to a lower wage job market, B) reduce overall employee headcount, or C) some combination of A and B?

(And let the backpedaling commence!)

61. The five I want to see them asked:

Since absolutely none of you are racist in any way, why is it that every single policy y'all push disproportionately hurts minorities?

Since you're so opposed to taxes of any kind, why are taxes that hurt the poor and middle class generally higher in states y'all run? Also, why is the infrastructure those taxes are supposed to fund so poorly maintained?

Why do the "FOR THE CHILDREN!!!!!" frenzies you work yourselves into never include anything that would have helped a single child in the past, present, or future?

Given current wealth distribution in the United States and your position on taxing the wealthy, exactly what percentage of the wealth should the top 1% have before it becomes enough?

What laws of physics are you breaking to suck so much without spontaneously imploding?

62. Good questions but with obvious answers

 

that is why they are not asked. It's pretty simple. I do not even need to write the answers for you. You already know them anyway too. They don't care about your 5 questions. They already know the answers. Why are they going to tell you? They don't care if you know them or not. It is pretty simple.





CALL IT WHAT IT IS. TYRANNY.... NOW GO SHOP....THEY HAVE ALREADY TOLD YOU TO DO THIS ONCE BEFORE. LISTEN TO THEM.









Meanwhile....The progression continues....

64. They just don't care .....

You can't ask any of them anything; you don't have enough money to bribe them with.

Besides, American politics does not requires logic or reason. They simply repeat their lies until they become " the truth ". Either the American people are very gullible or the System is corrupt.
Probably both.

67. I saw a study where

they said that consuming big amounts of high fructose corn syrup can impair a person's memory.

Perhaps this could have something to do with America continuing to elect Republican degenerates for office?

65. The only question that I read was from

number 50. The big question I always wanted to see someone ask a republican or democrat.
What have the republicans policies ever done for the betterment of America and the American People?

68. Most Republicans are just idiots.

There are a few who have some twisted rationale thinking more billionaires will make the country stronger.

But most are just followers, who buy into anything as long it supports their party of racists, war mongers, and the bottom 50% of our classes.
