    I'm watching Morning Joe and they throw out the statistic that 2/3rd of all jobs in the US are from "small business". It seems the Republican Leadership sees "small business" when a company makes 500 million to a billion dollars, but the truth is, those businesses aren't really "small".

    One woman guest talked about how she has grown her company from 17 employees to 60. Now that is a "small business". She talked about how she had to learn about promoting a "demand" and creating a "supply" through "investment" for her to receive "revenue". And how that "revenue" need to be greater than her "investment".

    Cutting has never created jobs. In fact, the very idea is to "reduce" the number of jobs.

    I think if a Republican actually understood "capitalism" and was able to use the words, "Supply, demand, investment and revenue" effectively and presented meaningful plans that would actually create jobs, they would give Obama a run for his money.

    Remember, Republicans ran on "Jobs, jobs, jobs" and once in office, turned that into "gay rights, abortion, end Medicare, give tax breaks to the uber wealthy and hate Obama". I suspect the public won't forget that anytime soon.

    Has anyone heard a single Republican leader use the words, "Supply, demand, investment and revenue"?

    I'm tired of Republicans saying what we can't do. When will they come up with a plan on what we can do?

    Thought they might surprise me. Guess not.

    Quit demanding absurd bullshit, mind your manners, and take care of your own.

    He got as far as 3rd grade, which is when I learned about supply and demand. Funny thing though, when I got to 7th I learned that it is a little more complicated.

    Republicans define "small business" by the criteria laid down by the Small Business Administration, which is the official and legal arbiter of what constitutes a small business. Whose criteria are YOU using, jackwad? Whatever "feels" right to you at the moment?

    Honestly, it never ceases to amaze me that your skull doesn't just implode, due to the vacuum between your ears.

    --which has a website that says:

    A size standard is usually stated in number of employees or average annual receipts and represents the largest size that a business (including its subsidiaries and affiliates) may be to remain classified as a small business for SBA and federal contracting programs.

    Based on those criteria, the SBA has established the following standards for a small business:

    * 500 employees for most manufacturing and mining industries, and
    * $7 million in average annual receipts for most non-manufacturing industries.​
