    Obama claims to be creating "jobs" but what is he REALLY doing.....?

    Instead of setting Americans free from his onerous business Regulations.....he chooses to create more Public Private Partnerships (PPPs).....

    ....isn't that actually a form of GOVERNMENT CONTROL of business....? (i.e. socialism)

    his "jobs creation" plan is more like a clusterfuck...:evil:
    ...from the article...
    "promote cluster-based development in regions"
    "entrepreneurial ecosystem"
    "cluster development"
    "regional innovation clusters"
    "sustainable jobs"

    I think socialism would be nationalizing things that are formerly private rather than just throwing money at the private sector.

    "throwing money" always comes with a price tag.....

    think of PPPs as "interim steps" toward textbook socialism....

    I call BS. The state of VA and many of it's local governments have turned to PPPs as a way to help fund needed projects that the governments simply cannot fund themselves due to decreased tax revenue. It is a good way to get the government things that are needed, i.e., schools, courthouses, etc. while also stimulating the local private construction market.

    If it weren't for PPPs, you'd see very little cancer drug development. You'd see near zero development for orphan diseases. Hell, if it were for PPPs, you wouldn't see canals or railroads.

    so you LIKE eeeevil capitalists in bed with eeevil government politicians......? :eek:

    you want your public property to be privately owned.....? (think Chinese ownership of our roads or schools)

    you want your private property to be "publically" owned.....? (think 'emminent domain' of your private property)

    I really thought you GOPers learned your lesson in 2008, when it became apparent that your fearmongering simply wasn't good enough to get your guy into the WH?

    R&D is a bit different from general business....and canals and RR are for the public good.....however once upon a time private railroads did a better jobs than the government-funded ones....and why did we fund the Panama Canal just to later give it away.....? :cuckoo:

    I have already stated that I felt PPPs were good for the public as well as the private because the public gets the government facilities the need and the private get sthe jobs they need. How is that not supporting my position?
