Has anyone else noticed ...

All of the "uncertainty" that the gop claims is stopping business investment, is caused by the gop?

When I tell you what I'm going to do, uncertainty only creeps up if you think someone is going to completely stop me.

1. It's funny how Democratically owned businesses are doing just fine.

The only complainers are the Republican owned businesses.

2. Whenever I hear that, a voice whines in my head in the most annoying way possible,

"I'm unceeeeertain. I'm unsuuuuure."

At what point in the history of the world has there been certainty for the financial markets? At what point did it become incumbent on the rest of the world's inhabitants to make life easy for these idiots?

That's what business is. Navigating the uncertainties of life and coming out ahead in the process.

When I hear about the "unceeeerrrrrtainty" I always think, "Welcome to the world the rest of us live in. And shut the hell up."

3. I agree...

It is a bit frustrating.
They are like:
Oh, we don't know what's going to happen next year.
Next Year is going to be so hard.

4. And the pettiful part is ...

Yes they do know, or at a minimum, can project what is going to happen next year based on what President Obama and the Democrats have proposed.

Their "uncertainty" with respect to regulations is BECAUSE the gop says there are going to be all these new regulations, that Democrats have not proposed. Their "uncertainty" with respect to tax rates is BECAUSE the gop promises that they will fight raising taxes on the wealthy. Their "uncertainty" with respect to ObamaCare is BECAUSE the gop promised to repeal it.

It's almost like: I not going to go to work tomorrow because someone told me there is going to be a unicorn stampede.
