    This is just a perfect example of right wing hypocrisy and inconsistency. This business owner, Melissa Ball, whines

    "The one phrase wasn't even as bad as the whole together,"

    when the President points out that government helps business to succeed. Yet she her hypocritical little self saw no problem with getting a $600,000 loan guaranteed by the taxpayer.

    I personally take exception that this ungrateful little bitch took out a loan guaranteed by the People's tax dollars and - rather than thank the taxpayer for guaranteeing the loan - she acts insulted at the suggestion that we helped her out in the first place!

    Did the government loan her the money or just secure the loan ?

    The government secures the loan, and in doing so, the People take all the risk (with the secured portion of the loan) while the bank takes none. This enables her to borrow at lower interest rates. I don't hear her complaining about that.

    Kinda like Solyndra....only that money came from us....it wasn't secured against other cash.

    There should not be loans secured by the federal government. If a state wants to do that...fine.

    Here is one other thing you might consider while you are in the bathroom looking at porno.

    Banks are not going to take those risks if they can push small businesses in this direction. It allows them to be sloppy and probably makes for bad loans (again Solyndra).

    If there were no government loans, banks might be more prone to grab their balls and do the work necessary to help small businesses succeed. That is really how they should be making their money.

    Maybe she couldn't get another loan and had to do this....like I said...banks are going to drive people to this if it is out there.

    Maybe the problem is that the government offers them at all.

    In the end that is right.

    However, because it is government secured, the bank is less likely to go over her businessplan and work to help her succceed. They have no skin in the game.

    If she fails, she fails. We pay the price and the bank skates.

    Somehow that kind of system seems a bit screwed up.

    I can see Harry Ried with Bernie Sanders nose up his ass saying that we need to support small businesses. Often times, by trying to help....you hurt.

    Look these clowns have nothing, they think they everyone who dips their tool in the government pool should bow down, NOPE. Fact is who gives a shit if they got a loan. Maybe if they got rid of regulation that makes business hard to startup and own, we wouldnt need the loans. It's just a racket like student loans, the Govt jacks up books and tuition then you have to gravel to them so you can pay for this shit.
