    Classic take from Patrick Chisholm.


    “Dude, where’s my job?” is one of the slogans one finds scrawled on signs held by disheveled young protesters at Occupy events.

    Dude, have you ever thought about what it takes to give you a job? Nah, I’m sure not. If you had, you wouldn’t be out there with the Occupy folks demonizing the top 1 percent — the people who create most of the jobs. More likely you’d be hanging out with the tea party folks.

    You think a job is some sort of entitlement — like it should just be there for you. But you’ve got to realize that a real person has to bust his butt in order to create that job.

    When you say, “Dude, where’s my job?” what you’re really saying is, “Dude, put your financial and emotional well-being on the line by quitting your day job and hanging out a shingle. Be smart and diligent enough to come up with a good product, and hope that you can sell enough of that product to have enough revenue to hire and pay me.”

    Most people would never in a million years go through all the B.S. involved in starting a business and creating a job.

    Few people have the guts to start a business, the smarts to come up with a promising product, the doggedness to stick with it and the stomach to put up with all the slings and arrows that get thrown up along the way. Most start-ups — four out of five — fail within five years.

    Running a business is not for the faint of heart. Consider what folks have to go through in order to generate a job:

    small business creates more of the new jobs.

    Why do you fight for the people who make a habit of killing small competitors?

    Real people risk it all and work incredibly hard to start businesses and make them successful so they can hire workers. No one is enititled to or deserves a job. They should instead feel happy and fortunate when they're given one. Someone worked very hard to create that business. They're owed some gratitude. No one deserves anything.

    If you have a society where people have no way to support themselves then your society will fail.

    This is why Ron Paul is considered insane by so many people.


    he thinks people are for society.


    Society is for people my friend

    Society does not exist without people.

    People make up society.

    Your thinking is warped.

    they do not kill small competitors.

    Small competitors fail due to a failed business plan.

    Smart small business owners develop a plan to be able to compete.

    And when you have an oligopoly, smart small business owners develop a plan to capitaliuze on the oligopoly.

    But my guess is that this is way too deep for you to comprehend.

    Nope.

    Your thinking is so warped you cant comprehend what I said.

    Society is not FOR people.
